Nearly 7 in 10 Americans are angry at the direction the country is headed and 53% of Americans disapprove of President Barack Obama’s job performance, two troubling signs for Democrats one week before the midterm elections, a new CNN/ORC International Poll shows.
Democrats are battling to try and save the Senate majority, while hoping to prevent more losses in the House, which the GOP controls by a 234 to 201 margin.
In the Senate, Republicans need a net gain of six seats, and several state polls in the past month of contested races show that Democrats are in danger of losing control of the majority, and thus Congress. Currently, Democrats control the Senate by a 55-45 margin with two of those seats held by independents that align themselves politically with Democrats.
The CNN/ORC poll shows that 30% of Americans are “very angry” and 38% are “somewhat angry” about the way things are going in the country, while 31% expressed “no anger” at all. CNN Polling Director Keating Holland notes the 31% of “very angry” Americans matches the mood of the country in 2010 when Republicans took back control of the House.
In next week’s election, the emotion of anger could be a motivating factor in driving out GOP voters. While 36% of Republican voters said they are “extremely” or “very enthusiastic,” about voting this year, only 26% of Democrats use that language to describe themselves, in the CNN/ORC poll.
Perhaps it has something to do with the imperious manner in which President Barack Hussein Obama has approached his duties as President of the United States of America, basically doing whatever he wants to, paying no attention to to the wishes of the majority of Americans and “solving” issues in a manner which is 180 degrees out of alignment with the overwhelming majority of the American people.
It’s not just the fact that the Far Left Political Ideology, which he wholeheartedly embraces, is so contrary to the viewpoint of the majority of Americans, it’s the fact that his entire presidency has been a mission to change America into something that it was never meant to be.
Our Founding fathers envisioned American as a “Sweet Land of Liberty”, where average Americans would come to Washington to represent the views of their region of the country through their service to our nation by becoming elected representatives. The plan of our Founders was that these citizen politicians would serve for a couple of years and then return to their everyday lives, allowing fresh ideas to keep the Tree of Liberty forever in bloom.
Somewhere along the way, just as with other great “empires”, the United States Government started to grow corrupt from within.
The desire to serve their fellow citizens, was replaced in our elected representatives hearts by a lust for money and power, achieved through following the wishes of special interest groups, controlled by very wealthy donors, such as George Soros, who keep hidden in the shadows, only revealing themselves when it suits their needs.
It was these special interest groups who had a heyday during President Bush’s time in office, by influencing the Democratically-controlled Congress, and the same bunch have now guided the presidency of Barack Hussein Obama.
This poll is an expression of the frustration, bordering on rage, of average Americans, who are sick and tired of this “tyranny of the minority”.
Average Americans, those good-hearted people, living in America’s Heartland, know that something is wrong with our country, the country which the overwhelming majority of us were raised to pledge our allegiance to, and to thank God for the blessing of an American Birth.
During the almost 7 years of the Obama Presidency, those who were raised differently from the rest of us, have been in charged of steering this Ship of State…and, they have us headed straight toward the shoals of destruction.
The overwhelming majority of Americans have been raised by their parents and extended family to know the difference between right and wrong.
The Still Small Voice, which resides in each and every one of us, is positively shouting that our nation is headed in the wrong direction, being led that way by people who do not believe in American Exceptionalism, the unbridled potential of the individual, and individual responsibility.
During this Administration, they have experimented with introducing an amoral, self-indulgent, nanny-state, socialist-syle government, here in the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave, a country which was founded on the principles of Liberty, Inalienable Rights, and Individual Accomplishment.
It’s simple. The happiness of Americans does not come from the Nanny-state, out-of-control Federal Government of President Barack Hussein Obama. Americans’ happiness originates from the same Creator that endowed each and every one of us with our inalienable rights. He has given us, as Americans, the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Americans, through His grace, and the love and support of our families and friends, are working to achieve and enjoy those rights everyday.
When those in power seek to be the Creator of those inalienable rights, they are doomed to failure. Please reference the Roman Empire and the U.S.S.R. as examples.
The majority of Americans have a great deal in common, Ties That Bind, if you will. As our external enemies discovered after their cowardly attack on September 11th, 2001, Americans will come together when our neighbors and families are being harmed and our freedom is at stake.
The tyrannical minority who have been ruling with impunity saw a small sampling of Americans’ independent spirit and resolve to remain free on November 2nd, 2010. So far, they seem blinded by their ideology and own self-importance.
They underestimate Americans. The tyrannical always have.
The Mid-Term Election promises to be a Political Tsunami of epic proportions.
Until He Comes,
