A Fox News poll found that Republicans are driving the 11% increase in Americans who want a less involved federal government.
Nearly half, 47 percent, say the message they would like to give the federal government is “leave me alone,” up from 36 percent a year ago.
As for others, 44 percent say they would tell the government “lend me a hand.” That’s down significantly from 57 percent who felt that way last August.
That shift comes almost completely from Republicans. A year ago, they were more likely to ask the government to “leave me alone” than “lend a hand” by a slim 3-point margin (48-45 percent).
Republicans are firmly in the back-off camp by 56 points (75-19 percent).
Some 69 percent of Socialist Democrats would tell the government “lend me a hand.” It was 71 percent in 2020. They love the freebies.
Three-quarters of Americans earning less than $50,000 say that rising grocery and gas prices are causing budgetary concerns for their families. Over half of those earning more than $100,000 agree.
Few seem to realize this is all deliberate. The government is making more and more of us dependent on the government so we need more and more of their help.
The Socialist Democrat Party only believes in centralized government at this point.
The increase is a plus, but, apparently, we still have a lot of Americans who like the government telling them what to do as long as the money keeps coming in. The fact that the government is causing the crisis doesn’t seem to matter.
The government is everywhere and in everything we do. That’s the price you pay for their generosity with other people’s money — no freedom.
