Federal government scarier than Muslim terrorism?

Those of us who pay attention, who are not doing the zombie shuffle through life, take polling results with more than a grain of salt. But, I found the results of a couple of post-Boston bombing, small-sample polls conducted by Fox News and the Washington Post to be interesting for what they say about our perception of the federal government.

On Sunday, WorldNetDaily's Drew Zahn wrote a report in which he stated:

According to a pair of recent polls, for the first time since the 9/11 terrorist hijackings, Americans are more fearful their government will abuse constitutional liberties than fail to keep its citizens safe.

Even in the wake of the April 15 Boston Marathon bombing – in which a pair of Islamic radicals are accused of planting explosives that took the lives of 3 and wounded over 280 – the polls suggest Americans are hesitant to give up any further freedoms in exchange for increased "security."

A Fox News survey polling a random national sample of 619 registered voters the day after the bombing found despite the tragic event, those interviewed responded very differently than following 9/11.

For the first time since a similar question was asked in May 2001, more Americans answered "no" to the question, "Would you be willing to give up some of your personal freedom in order to reduce the threat of terrorism?"

Of those surveyed on April 16, 2013, 45 percent answered no to the question, compared to 43 percent answering yes.

In May 2001, before 9/11, the balance was similar, with 40 percent answering no to 33 percent answering yes.

But following the terrorist attacks of 9/11, the numbers flipped dramatically, to 71 percent agreeing to sacrifice personal freedom to reduce the threat of terrorism.

He goes on to report similar findings in the Washington Post poll.

Even though both polls represent a very small sample of the American people, I am convinced by all I have seen and read that many more Americans today do indeed fear the federal government, and I believe they have very good cause to do so. Despite the despicable "mainstream" media's desperate attempts to give cover to, and lie for, the most lawless administration in American history, plenty of us, using other information sources, are able to see through the detestable media's putrid smokescreens.

We can see that Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) and the anti-American radicals in his administration and Congress have boundless contempt for the constitutional limits on their power. It is clear to many of us that we are watching a federal government that is systematically working to tear down this nation, its freedoms and foundations.

So, is the federal government scarier than Muslim terrorism? I say it most certainly is. While Islamic jihad is a danger to our nation, we can still stop it if our authorities are willing, but in the federal government, which is run by power-mad people, we are dealing with a nearly unstoppable entity that has the power to rain destruction on the entire nation, not just spot locations.

Further, Islamists and the communists running the federal government (Senator McCarthy was right, by the way) share the same hatred of America and its freedoms and the same hatred of Jesus Christ and His followers. How can I say that Obama and his fellow-traveling buddies in the administration and Congress hate America and its freedoms? By their actions, their inactions and their words.

In their words, these people routinely lie about their motives, about the evil goals of their legislation, about their political opposition and even the American people who oppose them, who they falsely label as "racists" or "right wing extremists." In his words, Obama regularly trash-talks America, apologizing for what needs no apologies.

In their actions, we see their ceaseless attempts to impose a socialist form of government on our nation, in contradiction to our Constitution's design for a representative republic. They are destroying our military in every way, including forcing it to accept open homosexuals and women in front-line combat.

We see their vile attempts to squash our God-given right to self-defense under the guise of "public safety." We see the war they have waged on our God-given rights to freedom of religion with their hell-born "Obamacare" abortion coverage mandate and their push for sodomy "rights" and fake marriage that would subvert our freedom of religion, association and ultimately, speech.

In their inactions, we see their treasonous refusal to secure our nations borders and deport the criminal aliens among us. We see their stonewalling of investigations into their other criminal actions like the Fast and Furious Mexican gun running scandal and the Muslim murders of our Ambassador and others in Benghazi, Libya – murders aided by this administration.

These are just the tip of an America-hating iceberg of lawlessness perpetrated by these people currently in power, not that other administrations and congresses have not abused their power, but we've never seen anything like the current administration. There is no conclusion that I can draw other than the people running our federal government are enemies of America. Our nation has been overthrown by enemies within.

These people are on the side of the Islamists. Again, their actions show this – their support for the Muslim Brotherhood in the Middle East, and the outrageous purging of military and intelligence agencies of proper Muslim training materials at the demand of Islamist groups and Islamist "advisors" within the federal government. That says volumes about where this administration's loyalties lie. They do everything they can to avoid even saying "Muslim terrorism."

Since our "mainstream" media will never speak the truth about the Islamist infiltration of our nation and government, it took an Egyptian publication to report that the Obama administration has Muslim Brotherhood operatives at the highest levels.

America is in big trouble. I see the Lord's judgment falling and the terrible storm gathering. The collective sins of our nation are coming home to roost. No nation can butcher pre-born – and even just-born – babies by the millions and not to expect awful consequences. No nation can hope to avoid God's judgment while it embraces and even "glorifies" homosexuality and its various manifestations, along with its militant assault on the freedoms of those who oppose it.

No, we should not be surprised to see the sorry state of the soul of America when the leaders in our government, schools, entertainment industry, and institutions all across the land have spit on the Lord and have shunned His wisdom, knowledge and commands for living our lives. We now have the federal government we have earned while we slept and allowed God to be outlawed as sin was made mandatory.

We are not surprised to see that the federal government is now a monster that is scarier than the Muslim terrorists among us.
