I Want to Play Poker with 15% of Americans

by Kevin D. Williamson

Interesting stuff from Rasmussen:


Seventy-two percent (72%) believe the federal government has become a special interest group that looks out primarily for its own interests. Only 15% disagree.

Seventy-three percent (73%) believe that government and big business work together against the rest of us. Only 13% disagree.

It is always tempting to snark, “Who are the other 15 percent?” But, sincerely, who are they, and what do they believe? That people cease being people, and cease having ends of their own, when they go to work for the government?

As for the latter question, conservatives instinctively defend business, but it may be the one great gift of the Obama administration, brought to you by Goldman Sachs and G.E., to train us out of that.
