Not of us


So, you still think that epic American Spectator piece by Angelo Codevilla regarding the gap between the ruling class and the country class was a tad hyperbolic and representative of overheated rhetoric?

First, check this out. Rasmussen reports:

Eighty-six percent (86%) of voters nationwide say there should be “limits on what the federal government can do.” A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only nine percent (9%) believe the federal government should be allowed to do most anything in this country.


86%! That's comforting. But isn't it a little disconcerting, still, to know that nearly one in 10 people in this country are fine with totalitarianism if it comes to that? Who would those people be?

But, of course!

These views are overwhelming shared across virtually all partisan and demographic lines.

The only exception is America’s Political Class. By a 54% to 43% margin, the Political Class believes the federal government should be allowed to do most anything. Mainstream voters reject that view by a 94% to three percent (3%) margin.


94 to 3. Much better.

Go to the link and find out more about just how wide this gap is.

Stay ungovernable, friends.




Addendum #1: Liberated from the comment section as we were on the same wave length but were not capable of the verbal turn. Our pal KT, finishes our thought:

Your last line begs to be rewritten in the tone of The Most Interesting Man in the World.

"I don't always get politically involved, but when I do, I prefer to join Tea Parties. Stay ungovernable, my friends."

LOL! And here I thought that's what the line was meant to say all along.
