New Poll Finds a Deep Distrust of Government - NYTimes.com

There is a good reason why Americans distrust their government.... it has failed miserably in delivering the Utopian promises that it has made. The government has bastardized the social contract and has inserted its greasy fingers in so many aspects of American life.

However, as the hard-left New York Times concludes from the poll, they see that the juvenile Occupy Wall Street protests, soak the rich tax policies and wealth redistribution are still very popular among too many Americans and these effete American socialist attitudes still infect American thinking. This just indicates to me that we are a long-long way from getting back on the path to prosperity and that things will probably get much worse before it gets better.

Self destructive socialist policies emanating from bad 1930's New Deal economic interventions have transformed the nation into a wide swath of entitlement babies where common people now think that others owe them a living. This will have to be reduced if the nation is to survive. They should never have existed but due to the demographics of the babyboom, the nation indulged in an orgy of socialism.

The best medicine for the nation is to completely eliminate much of the central government's economic intervention and return to a state where productive work, savings and investment is rewarded instead of punished. There will be suffering but this will be better than the suffering that will take place down the road if we continue on the path of deadening central government directed socialism.
