83% Of Americans Believe That They Are Being Governed Without Consent

One of the key foundational concepts in the Declaration of Independence which Lincoln referred to “four score and seven years ago” is that “governments derive their only just powers from the consent of the governed.” Just 17% of Likely U.S. Voters now think the federal government has that consent.

    Make that 84%

    Many of those 17% has chosen to post in the comment section there. Guess they’re freaked by the title of the article.

    It is a crying shame that illegal aliens are treated better than U.S. citizens. This government has ruined 225 years if greatness! I blame the whole lot of politicians. The POTUS has set America back 150 years. I’m just having a hard time understanding that since I’m a white male from the south I HAVE to be a racist. Maybe after the next 3 years of being constantly told I’m what’s wrong with the U.S. I understand.

    If someone makes a bogus call claiming something is wrong at your house, there will be county deputies show up and they will come into your home and search it. Does not matter if you say ‘I do not consent’, they’re coming in. If you resist, well, your done for.
    After tyranny is first hand in your living room and your being bullied around, you’ll weep for what your country has become and where it’s headed.

  5. Yet little more than half of that 83% can be counted upon not to support Obama’s lies, and his depredations.

    Well, if we take Romney’s famous 47% and add them to Obama’s 83% you will have well over 130%!!! Now the goal would be to win over the negative 220%, you know … those who are ‘down’ and not positive, and then you’ll have 90%, no accounting for the coveted Independents.

    We’re all racist now.

  8. If you are governed without representation, WHOSE FAULT IS THAT? Did YOU not VOTE? If you voted you HAVE REPRESENTATION, even if you don’t like the representative or the representation. YOU AREN’T GUARANTEED TO GET WHAT YOU WANT FROM THE GOVERNMENT. IF YOU DO YOU ARE AN ABSOLUTE IDIOT.
    I don’t like the representation I’m getting. Obama ran as a liberal but is governing as a moderate. I’m quite unhappy about that.
    One thing I will say for the GOP “gentlemen” serving in the US House from my district: HE RESPONDS when I send them a message. And those in the GOP NC House and NC Senate respond quickly and in person. And I’m a Bleeding heart LIBERAL DEMOCRAT.
