A Fox News survey asked 619 registered voters whether they would willingly give up their “personal freedom in order to reduce the threat of terrorism.”
45% said no. 43% said yes… the day after the Boston Marathon bombing.
That’s the first time since the 9/11 terrorist attacks that even a small majority of Americans said it wasn’t worth it.
Can’t imagine why when, according to the nonpartisan Government Accountability Institute, President Obama spent twice as much time between vacationing and golfing than he did in economic-related meetings.
Or when Vice President Joe Biden says really stupid stuff about how the Taliban “is not our enemy.”
Or when, six months after Hurricane Sandy, tens of thousands remain homeless despite government promises of aid and help.
It’s almost like Americans are beginning to think that our big, bloated government isn’t good for much, even when it comes to national security… one of its most fundamental reasons for existing.
And for the life of me, I just can’t imagine why.
