Raw Story Article 73% of Americans Dissatisfied with America
http://www.rawstory.com/comments/31740.html

article reads this:

A new Gallup Poll found only 25 percent of Americans are satisfied with how things are going in the U.S., with 73 percent saying they were disatisfied.It was one of the lowest ratings since 1979 when Gallup first asked the question. Iraq was the problem survey respondents fround most troubling, Gallup tells us.



What is wrong with that 25% perhaps deluded and in denial?

1. Yes, the 25%: Deluded about being in denial and denying being deluded...
It's tough to admit you were completely and utterly misled and unltimately wrong in the end.

Of course, it's tempting for us to take the "told you so" attitude as well. Personally, for the time being, I'm embracing it.

Big, Red, and breaking down the doors and walls of filthy bourgeoisie capitalist children's houses with a resounding "ACH DA!" ("Oh yeah!" in Russian)

14. Polling data is a moist pile of steaming bullshit,
Polls are nothing more than "tools of the trade" now. The questions are structured to a predictable outcome, I have no doubt you can find polling data that says 95% of americans are fed up with america. And then what?

The democratic "dry powder" is either a myth, or more likley it is being fed ito the republican cannons, via the noodle spined politicians spewing "CHANGE" out the corner of thier Republican ass kissing mouths.

Exactly what is the use of "dry powder" if it's so long stored, that it's forgotten?

5. This is what happens when the GOP is in charge
They ruin everything they touch. Except for the handful of rich white men who get richer, there are few if any GOP led initiatives that have improved the state of our country or the state of our people.

9. I'm not dissatisfied with America per se.
I'm just dissatisfied with war, republican rule, and capitalism.

13. The plutocratic ruling class only needs about 5-10%
of the populace in order to maintain control. Remember they have money to gain justice, hire security and influence laws.

And once ensconced in power all they have to do is mouth some platitudes, pretend they believe in god, and continue the trickle of money to the plebes.
