It comes as no surprise that two recent polls, one by the Pew Research Center and another by the WSJ/NBC, show that anger at the government, especially by tea partiers, has abated since the GOP shellacking of the Democrats in the 2010 midterm election.
While people are still generally angry at the government, it appears that the tough talk, with little actual action, has placated the masses. This, to me, proves once again that people are not truly concerned about making things better. Rather, it is about keeping their charlatans of choice in power.
With this in mind, we will continue to go down the road of greater debt, debasement of the dollar and a further infringement of our freedoms unless we demand real change and elect people, regardless of party, who really care about the well being of our republic.
