Uh, This Is Not Good
by Karl Denninger
February 18. 2010
 
From Rasmussen:
 
The founding document of the United States, the Declaration of
Independence, states that governments derive “their just powers from
the consent of the governed.” Today, however, just 21% of voters
nationwide believe that the federal government enjoys the consent of
the governed.
 
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 61%
disagree and say the government does not have the necessary consent.
Eighteen percent (18%) of voters are not sure.
 
Uh, there is no way for Washington DC to force people to believe they
have given consent. They can only act in a fashion that engenders
willfully-given consent.
 
In light of what happened today in Austin TX, this ought to be
resulting in sobering reflection among the "political class." It
won't, but it should.
 
Why?
 
Historians have estimated that between 15 and 20 percent of the
white population of the colonies were Loyalists.[2] Historian Robert
Middlekauff estimates that about 500,000 colonists, or 19 percent of
the white population, remained loyal to Britain.[3]
 
I had no idea the numbers were this bad at present, but I was aware
that in 1776 about 20% of the population was in fact in support of
Britain.
 
I think it's getting to be about time to.....
