Washington (CNN) – A majority of Americans think the federal government poses a threat to rights of Americans, according to a new national poll.

Fifty-six percent of people questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Friday say they think the federal government’s become so large and powerful that it poses an immediate threat to the rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens. Forty-four percent of those polled disagree.

The survey indicates a partisan divide on the question: only 37 percent of Democrats, 63 percent of Independents and nearly 7 in 10 Republicans say the federal government poses a threat to the rights of Americans.

According to CNN poll numbers released Sunday, Americans overwhelmingly think that the U.S. government is broken – though the public overwhelmingly holds out hope that what’s broken can be fixed.

The CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll was conducted February 12-15, with 1,023 adult Americans questioned by telephone. The survey’s sampling error is plus or minus 3 percentage points for the overall survey.

    There can be no doubt that we are faced with a problem. There are things going on that the average man/woman cannot understand. My God what will it take to wake up America? Just today Chris Dodd mentioned that we are heading towards violence. Look over seas at Greece and some of the other countries loosing ground economically speaking. I believe that the weathly are consolidating their fortunes leaving but only crumbs for the rest of us. Our country looks for new leadership that will boldy proclaim the Constitution as our guide to recovery. There is a way to stop the decline. One go back to our constitutional roots and two get the names put out there of all the rich folk who are buying off govt officials etc.. like George Soros. We need the Sons of Liberty to pay them folk a visit and fast. Do what it takes men and woman of liberty know when to take care of business for the benifit of the many. Spread the news, get to know your neighbors and plan ahead so that you are not caught out in the cold. Help a neighbor in his/her garden so that you will have food. Help someone fix their house so that you may have shelter when times get rough. Arm yourself for protection but be very patient and deliberate as to how you go about your defense and your offense. Do not forget to keep the Lord God first and keep your hearts and in your minds as pure as possible.

    The only thing surprising about this is it came from the Communist News Network! 56% say the feds are an IMMEDIATE threat, how many even of the Deep Denial Dems admitted there was somewhat of a threat?

    The Usurpers number’s are so bad! His Strongly Approve are bouncing around in the low 20%s. 22% today, with 43% Strongly Disapprove for a -21%. Think about it, who will support Obama no matter what? Hard core socialists- 5% of the population. Professional economic parasites- 10% of the Population. Black people- 13%. Registered Democrats 35-40% of the population. So, you know the Commies and the parasites are going to support him, so that is 15% right there! If 1/2 of the Blacks(7%) and 1/3 of the knee-jerk Dems(12%) are added, that gives 34% as a core support and HE IS 12% LESS THAN THAT!! He is loosing approval of those that should strongly support him no matter what!
    What a BOZO! If the Dems don’t get rid of Pelosi, Reid, Rangel, and a few others quickly, and rein in the Usurper, they will lose ALL credability with 75-80% of the American people!
