CNN came out with a poll Friday and it says people, more than ever before, don't have any faith in the federal government.

Paul Steinhauser writes The poll also indicates that the publics trust in government is at an all-time low.

Just 13% of Americans say the government can be trusted to do what is right always, or most of the time, with just over three-quarters saying only some of the time and one in 10 saying they never trust the government, according to the poll.

Does this surprise you?

We have a border which is not being protected and the American people are being left out of the entire process in which illegal aliens are being shipped all over the country and the feds are keeping it secret.

You have the IRS targeting you if you disagree with one particular party.

We we have the EPA trying to sneak around congress with a back-door plot to try and have a say -so about even the smallest mud puddle on your property.

And now the president just decides to change the health care law again and extend exemptions through 2016.

Everyone is reporting this story and no pundits even know what it means or portends.

Chaos.

The world and our country . . . politically is in utter chaos.

And the American media . . . accepts it.

What is the number of ANY IMMIGRATION REFORM BILL that ole dunce Louie Gohmert or any other republatard /t-idiot has filed, passed the house and sitting in the Senate deaf?
There has been a Immigration Reform bill passed by a majority of both Republicans & Democrats in 2013 sitting in the Republican House and they refuse to pass it and put more Border Patrol at the border and refuse to secure the border!!!

deaf said: Obama told them to release them.

where is the proof of that deaf? give us a link to that order. If president Obama gave an order like that, there has to be written documentation to support your claim.

don the state government doesn't arrest them cause the INS will just RELEASE THEM. The border is supposed to be protected by the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

Obama told them to release them. Even criminals (600 illegal alien criminals have been released lately by the INS.)

All on Obama's orders.

Louie Gohmert is in the HOUSE, and they have passed bills. On the other hand Reid, who runs the Senate, and is a DEMOCRAT, has not and refuses to do anything.

That is why at midterms Dems will be voted OUT!

So you are saying that the the Republicans / T-Partiers who control or state government and our chief LEO, greg abutt are not going to do their jobs because they are picking and chosing what laws they will enforce. What is the number of any immigration bill that crazy flip flopper Louie Gohmert or any GOP/T-Idiot house member filed that is in the Senate? Bet you can't name even one.

does that include Louie Gohmert?
I haven't trusted him as long as I've known him
Can't trust a man who won't look you in the eye

I love hearing Gomer feign a hard line against illegals Town. I wonder if I could throw a rock in a chicken farm or chicken processing plant in Gomers district without hitting an illegal?

NO, Tyson hires them all the time

deaf why are they not arresting them and turning them over deaf? H3ll in Tyler, Longview, Palestine & Jacksonville anyone can find a group of illegals hanging around waiting on someone to come by and offer them work yet the police LEO's just drive by and do nothing but look.LEOs, Perry, Abutt and the entire Texas T-Party Republicans took an oath to uphold both Tx. & Federal Laws but in Tx they refuse to do their jobs and uphpld their oaths.

Ok dave, here is the answer.

Make voting MANDATORY with penalties if you fail. And of course... to make sure they vote you need VOTER ID LAWS! Keeps the ineligible from voting and makes it a duty to all eligible to vote.

Unfortunately Deaf we can't mandate civic responsibility. We should publicly fund all elections. Repeal tax exemptions for campaign contributions over $1000. Make all corporate donations illegal. And reinstate the fairness doctrine so that we can hear the names of the 3 people running against Cornyn in the election coming up in November. Isn't it odd that KETK hasn't even mentioned anyone running against Cornyn in an election occurring 3 months from now?

Gov't should never be trusted. That's one of our founding principles and a primary reason for the Bill of Rights in our Constitution. Gov't like most any other human endeavor is greed and power motivated and like those other endeavors, such as businesses, must be monitored and punished when it violates the laws.
The Declaration puts forth the ideal of gov't by the consent of the people. Unfortunately lately (meaning the last 50 yrs or so), the people have consented to too much gov't.

Jpttm ,you make a good point. I do find it sad that Americans won't show up to vote and overthrow minority rule. Cornyn is a good example. He received 770,000 votes in the primary which sounds pretty good, until you find out 1,038,396 Texans voted against him. The majority will be stuck with the senator that voted for deregulation that led to the 2008 collapse, the TARP bailout, the patriot act, NSA wiretapping, torturing prisoners, and open borders.

"Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; "

Yeats... maybe talking about Obama for all I know.

It sounds like our elected officials no longer have any legitimate power. They have legal authority due to the fact that few people up to vote anymore. So a minority with money can purchase air time to influence the minority that show up to vote, effectively buying an election.
