Public Pulse: your opinions, our new video

Public Pulse | July 1, 2011

How do we tell Washington how we feel? We show them.

We sifted through the top public opinion polls to create a compelling video that visualized how you feel about the economy. And not surprisingly, Americans aren’t happy. But one thing is clear: people around the country think the U.S. is on the wrong track and want Congress to cut spending to get back on the right one. Watch the video below, and be sure to share on Facebook and Twitter!

    I say not one more red cent until Washington can prove that they are serious about cutting spending and reducing the deficit. I am sick and tired of hearing about the ridiculous waste of our hard earned money. Studying shrimp on a treadmill, funding leftist organizations and abortion mills, bailing out car companies, union shops, banks and Wall Street. Funding “Bridges to Nowhere” instead of doing what needs to be done to stimulate the economy and create jobs. This country is suffering and the President is golfing or fund raising. Money is going to supporters and pet projects instead of where it needs to go – helping small business – the backbone of our country – and now they’re trying to steal two thousand jobs from South Carolina. The sooner these guys are kicked to the curb the better off this country will be. I think some people voted for Obama to prove they weren’t racists so they need to vote him out to prove their not idiots.

  3. This is a good video as respects the opinions of the American public. You conclude that slashing the deficit will improve the economy. Personally, I think this action without a concentrated effort to restore American jobs will result in increased unemployment and still lower tax revenues.

    America must begin producing for her own needs if our Country is to survive as a free, independent and sovereign Nation. My first step to restoring economic sanity is to repatriate to the USA the tens of millions of jobs, the thousands of factories and the complete industries that have been exported to foreign countries for the profit of a relatively few and at the expense of our entire Nation.

    Until America begins producing again, the idea of cutting deficits and/or increasing taxes is but a small bandage on a gaping and potentiall fatal wound. The free ride is over.This is the real message that needs to be delivered to America’s political and business leaders.

    This is bullshit! Our poor economy was engineered by the Bush administrations with the help of corporations, banks, and certain billionaires like the Koch brothers. It’s impossible to balance the budget with only spending cuts. It will never happen without making millionaires, billionaires, corporations, and banks pay their fair share of taxes. Cutting taxes for the wealthy and corporations NEVER had and NEVER will create jobs as evidenced by the current rate of unemployment! The short fall for funds to support Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid was engineered by corporations and Conservatives. They abused NAFTA options to ship American jobs overseas, thus putting millions of Americans out of work. This caused funding deductions from worker’s paychecks for these social programs to dramatically decrease resulting in a supposed “crisis” created by these Conservatives.

    I’m sure your poll results are biased as is the truth about every Conservative poll since Bush’s first term in office. The Silent Majority of Americans are not stupid and this bullshit will be soundly rejected in the 2012 election, from which I estimate their will by @ a 75% majority of Democrats and Independents in Congress and also Obama’s reelection. All the Conservative media race baiting in the world will not break up the Rainbow Coalition that put Obama in the White House in 2008. The Republican agenda, as revealed by their current actions, has already caused millions of registered Republican voters, who have never in their lives voted any way but the entire Republican ticket, to commit to changing affiliation to Democrat or Independent and voting AGAINST Republican candidates and their Propositions. This trend CANNOT be reversed!! ALL of this country’s problems were and continue to be the result of Conservative political, economic and social manipulation, legislative abuse, Conservative judicial bias (including the Supreme Court), misinformation, and outright lies!!!

    The government stoped listening to “THE PEOPLE” years ago. all they want is to steal whats left and leave is with the mess, they dont care about fixing anything. They dont work for us, they work for themselves, and fight over everything because neither side wants to be the “looser”. It has nothing to do with what we expect or want!! NOW! how we gonna fix this??

    • dom says:

      Only two ways to fix it.

      1 lock and load. start a revolution to overthrow our corrupt government.

      2 Wait for it to collapse under it’s own weight then form a government of the people. In either senario we lose

      • Kainn6 says:

        3 activate a nation wide citizens arrest of congress. Inact a vote of no confidence and hire new qualified citizens. No violence needed, or as minimal violence as possible…

    Great video, I just don’t agree that most people have a clue, especially here in FL where everyone just follows the Caley Anthony trial and collects that unemployment check. It’s all so sad to see this country slowly collapse into a trough of greed, mis-management, and unrelenting over-regulation. It will soon be time to seek freedom on other shores.

    This is all great and whatnot, but when are americans gonna stop sitting back and complaining and take action and DO something. These fat asses who were elected forget the work for US. They’re not threatened by posts or even protests. They live in glass houses where in their mind nothing can touch them. Me thinks me smells a REVOLUTION

    I feel sorry for anyone who thinks this video is great. It’s the same kind of garbage that spawned Michael Tandy (above), who I hope doesn’t take it personal when his 2012 predictions fall way short.

    Get off of the web and get outside with your message.

    Attack this liberal cry first:

    I’m against corporations but favor jobs. (Duh!)

    Regardless of your political leanings, Do you think spending more than you earn is good? Do you think borrowing more and more to pay your bills is good? Do you think forcing someone else to pay your debts is good?

    I wonder how many Americans want to see us not fighting wars, and finally calling our sons and daughters back home. Their new mission; to be our teachers, doctors, and engineers… Besides were going to need their protection when we finally face the machine.

    I think your ad does a great job of mis informing the public. The debt is a result of a pro economy not a cause. Rat Bastards like you protecting the interest of billionaires who need ever more ridiculous amounts of money are the reason our economy is crashed and you are the reason our country will be in a prolonged recession. The wealthy are doing fine, America and the rest of its citizens re sinking…. eventually we will crash your fucking gates and show you the true will of the good American people you scm sucking un-American pieces of shit.

    Funny how corporating only pay 7.2% of the government’s revenue through taxes while we the people, pay 33%!

    Also, the state of Nebraksa has more oil than Saudi Arabia put together. However, we don’t use our oil because the oil would be cheaper, therefore, they can’t tax us as high.
