What is the current mood of America?

Look at these polls and tell me if you think you are in the majority or the minority.

CNN/Opinion Research Corporation: 56% of Americans think the federal government poses a threat to the rights of Americans.

Rasmussen: 56% of Americans oppose Obama's health care bill.

Gallup: By a 49% to 42% margin, Americans oppose a health care bill if an agreement not reached at the bipartisan healthcare summit in Washington. By a 52% to 39% margin, Americans are against reconciliation to pass it.

Wall Street Journal/NBC: 33% of Americans think health care reform a good idea, 46% a bad idea.

Zogby: Just 12% of Americans willing to pay more than $500/year in taxes to fund Obamacare.

Rasmussen: 44% of Americans favor Obama

Gallup: 40% of Americans identify themselves as conservative, 21% as liberal.

Fox News: 62% of Americans think Obama is better at campaigning than governing.

Zogby: By a 52% to 40% margin, Americans prefer either the Republican health care bill or no bill at all over Obamacare.

Wall Street Journal/NBC: 41% of Americans favor the Tea Parties, as opposed to 35% for Democrats and 28% for Republicans.

I could continue if you'd like. In addition to these, another way to gauge national sentiment is to take a stroll around the web, to various public forums. Over at the politics section at Yahoo! Answers, it is always cluttered with tea party-ish anti-Obama viewpoints. Take a look at any Obama/healthcare related video on Youtube. The ratio of favor to oppose is astoundingly in favor of conservatism. Go to any news website and read what users have to say under related stories. I've seen a whole lot more negative comments towards Obama and Obamacare than I have positive ones.

Yet, the know-it-all pile of human waste occupying the White House continues to push through his "visionary" agenda for America. I'm telling you now, if it passes, there will be protests in this country like we've never seen before. There will be a public outcry coast to coast calling for the tar and feathering of Obama and every Demon-crat in Congress.

I guess, we will just have to wait and see.

Great article. Maybe we should just get rid of everyone and start over!
