Disapproval of Congress Hits All Time High of 84%

 Disapproval of Congress has hit an all time record high of 84% according to a Gallup poll released today, barely a week after pollster Pat Caddell warned that a dramatic loss of confidence in the country’s leadership meant Americans were now “pre-revolutionary”

“Americans have usually not held Congress in high regard, but currently they have a more negative view of the institution than any other time Gallup has measured,” states the report, noting that the disapproval figure stood at 77% last time Americans were polled on the issue in early July.

Approval of Congress, which stands at just 6 per cent according to Rasmussen, is measured by Gallup at 13 per cent, tying the all time historic low reached in December 2010, but the disapproval figure of 84 per cent is one percentage point higher than last December’s figure.

Disenchantment with Congress is mirrored by President Obama’s ailing approval rating, which also fell to an all time low of 40% in recent days..

Most of the laws enacted by Congress take away little pieces of rights of the people. Sometimes the pieces aren't so little.

If Congress wanted, they could get together and:
1. Overrule almost anything that Obama or any President wanted to do;
2. Shut down the Federal Reserve and take back the control of money; this would:
2a. Get rid of income taxes (you figure it out);
2b. Bring back jobs to the USA;
2c. Almost entirely eliminate our dependence on foreign oil and anything else foreign;
2d; Bring back dignity and power to our people:
3. Keep any Judicial judgements from adversely affecting our freedom.

Since Congress ignores treaties anytime they want anyway, they could dissolve all those treaties with the world - the ones that encroach on the freedoms of the American people - because the Congresses that put them in place actually did so without authority.

Actually, it is congress that is intentionally keeping the freedoms from us. Usually it is about job security, and an extensive pension.

No wonder they aren't popular.
