Economy, Joblessness, Bad Government, NSA Spying Top American Concerns


Citizens in at least seven states are promoting secessions movements, looking to escape big-city tax and gun control policies. In fact, several counties in Colorado already voted for secession…they no longer trust the government!

Americans are fed up with rising unemployment, shrinking privacy and freedoms, an overall bad economy and political leadership that is ineffectual, corrupt and abusive, according to the results of a recent survey.

Earlier this month, Gallup asked Americans to name the most important problems facing the Nation. Nineteen percent of the time respondents answered unemployment or jobs, 18 percent said growing problems with government and 17 percent said that the overall economy.

Out of control law enforcement who have forgotten what the Bill of Rights are, unelected bureaucrats who routinely stiff citizens with onerous fees and regulations, politicians who are too busy lining their pockets rather than resolving the problems that are turning America into a 3rd World nation…NONE of them seem to feel they need to answer to their boss – the citizens who fund their generous paychecks and pensions!

 Our message to the White House and Congress is clear:  Stop Destroying our Freedom, Stop Bankrupting our Economy, Stop Spying on Us and Stop Excessive, Mindless Over Regulation!
