Gallup is a repectable polling organization. There is an enormous amount of information in this poll. The poll question is simple and unbiased. It is obviously designed to petition a person's basic, heartfelt position, instead of providing the desired opinion, by proxy intimidation.
Fair to the Middle:
The president would be much higher on the list, somewhere around the military and the police, if he was not thinking about his legacy. He would be higher on the list, if he was thinking like the Commander-In-Chief. The man has American boys in the field. In his twilight presidency,he is floundering around with apologetic platitudes and indecisiveness; unwilling to show us the powerful president in a flight suit. Unwilling to address national security, to the public or deliver more hot Thanksgiving turkey to our troops.
President Bush is the executive of our laws; yet, he will not execute the laws regarding immigration. He has let the main stream media derail his presidency. He has let them define, then destroy his character. He has done this, without challenge. He has let them convince him of their fabricated truths, like global warming and carbon credits. George Bush is a flawed man. Hell; so am I. So are we all. The more power a man has, to affect real substantive change, instead of just talking about it, the more his character will be scrutinized for that ability. He is responsible both for effective and decisive action against terrorism and blundering inaction against the domestic threat of socialism.
Oh well. At least George Bush, President of the United States, is blowing away the Congress, in the eyes of the Americans polled by Gallup.
The SCOTUS is the definitive mixed bag of tricks. One day they are upholding the Constitution, the next day they are pruning it like a Bonsai, to bring it up to our 'modern standards'. So the court sits in the middle ground. With one or two conservative appointments, they could be enjoying military popularity. With one or two liberal appointments, they could be wallowing in the Congressional muck.
The Bottom Feeders:
Note that the police are at the top of the poll, but criminal justice is at the bottom. I guess the public really does detest the duplicities, sloth, civil service stagnation and pandering to the ACLU, that defines our criminal and civil court system. Gee. We do not like criminals released to victimize civilization and tire the police, over and over, on technicalities and lenient sentencing. Gee. We do not like judges using obtuse, emotion driven judgement to override public referendum laws, approved by voters. Gee. We do not like judges, who pass sentences for DUI, bankruptcy, lewd behavior and the like, then get caught exhibiting those behaviors themselves. Gee. We do not like having to endure the lifetime appointments of these officials, watching them go slowly insane, with their institutionalized radicalism, spewing it all over us and our kin.
What can I say about Congress? People can detect a serious leadership vacuum when they see it. Congress is polluted with corruption, perversion, nepotism, graft and a general moral decay.
Normally, this would have the people of the founder's day, bringing torches, guillotines, rakes and fresh lumber to Capitol hill. When they are not on the take, they are immersed in sexual scandal. When they are not immersed in sexual scandal. they are superficially patching the issues of our day, with pathetic diversions and excuses, which violate the very laws they pass and swear to uphold. They are disconnected from reality, because they are too lazy to research any controversial topic, deeper than their media mouthpieces, or lobbyist sources, would like them to. They are grossly uninformed and incapable of rational thought and discourse. They are unsympathetic to their consituents. When they are not providing superficial legislative patches, they are embracing and advocating radical solutions, like global warming hysteria, ethanol mandates, bailouts and nationalization of refineries, without any conscience consideration of consequences. They are seriously and dangerously flawed. They have sunk to the bottom of the poll, at an all time low, weighted by the plumbum of their hubris. By the way, both of our presidential nominees this year, come from this 'wonderful' Congress.
An Unfortunate Omission:
I wish Gallup had included our current liberal University system, as a collective institution in the poll. I think the liberal universities are far worse than any public school. They probably take as much money (if not more) and deliver far more civic damage, to the concept of American freedom, than other institutions. They plant the seeds of dissent. By dissent, I do not mean the seeds of freedom or free speech or any of the bullshit paradigms, used by these sophists to mask their destructive behavior. I mean the seeds of mind control and the curtailing of freedom, by truncating debate and thought on their own campuses.
These institutions are polluting young minds, which are just learning to think and reason. They push their shabby theories of some fictitious form of socialism, which if given the right chance, will bring us to utopia. They incessantly push the soft racism of diversity and multiculturalism. They push for government power over all, to enforce their elitist ideals. These institutions, which should be burned to the ground and re-built, are injecting their untested and detestably unacceptable theories, in those young minds. All the civics and American history has been either omitted from the curriculum, or distorted as evil and unacceptable. It is seditious, ugly and may result in the end of our fragile democracy.
If Gallup is to be believed, Americans are still resisting this, even if it is on a collective, subconscience level. If we wake up from our slumber, connect the dots and fill in the paint-by-numbers canvas, things could look quite different, in November, then is speculated by the media.
