    Govt. is public enemy No. 1, economy, immigration, outraged Americans, Gallup say.

    By Jacqueline Klimas - The Washington Times - Wednesday, August 13, 2014

    Americans say government, the economy and immigration are the top three problems facing the country today, according to a new poll released Wednesday. The Gallup poll showed that 18 percent of people polled say the government and politicians are the biggest problem while 14 percent say the economy is the top challenge. About 15 percent say immigration is the most important issue, jumping up from just 5 percent in June likely due to a flood of unaccompanied minors crossing the border this summer. About 7 percent of people ranked foreign policy the most important problem right now, making it the sixth biggest concern in August.

    I agree. Our nation is a massive super-corporation in an even large global economy The ability to understand business and economics is priority number 1, yet Americans keep electing lawyers to Washington who couldn't do basic double-entry bookkeeping if their lives depended on it. They are LAWYERS, not businessman or economists, must less MBAs or possessing higher degrees or greater experience in how to run a business.

    If anything, American keeps chugging along in SPITE of all their efforts, certainly not because of their efforts.
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.
