Obama has not been shy about trying to lessen personal freedom through Obamacare, higher taxes, gun control, etc. And although he got away with that last November, his continuing in that vein could easily backfire on him. Most Americans still like their freedom, and many still have enough backbone to defend it.
And now a Pew Poll finds most Americans see the federal government as a threat to their personal freedom for the first time in at least two decades. And it’s not really close. 53% see the feds as a threat to their freedom; 43% don’t. This is a very significant shift in public sentiment about the federal government.
With the American love for freedom and insistence on it, I think this poll indicates an environment ripe for an angry political uprising against Obama. Although the numbers of those who are content with being slaves on the liberal plantation have sadly increased, I still think enough Americans demand freedom to bring down a regime that constantly undermines it.
“Don’t tread on me” is not just an old slogan.
Downfall is an ongoing series anticipating and tracking what I expect will be the self-destruction of Obama.
