A new Gallup poll shows that the percentage of Americans who are satisfied with their freedom to choose what they do with their lives has dropped from 91 percent in 2006 to 79 percent in 2013.
Even Uzbekistan beat us by 12%!
Gallup suggests that the decline in perceived freedom may be due to the continued sluggish rebound of the U.S. economy (!?). Alternatively, they speculate that it might be due to an increasing belief that there is widespread corruption throughout the government. Do you think?
GSA: secret bonuses of $44 million, prizes for employee rap videos celebrating big spending, and $30K for drumsticks so the agency can learn how to “teambuild.”
ATF: the Director’s Orwellian “No whistle-blowing allowed here!” directive, following the whistle blowing revelation of the long dead Gun Walking phony scandal.
IRS: stay tuned –
there’s lots more!
It would seem that all these polls as of late are simply bogus. There’s simply no evidence to support the claim that Americans feel their freedom is slipping away.
Freedom: it’s a generational thing.
