"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

52% of Republicans don't believe in their own party (an admitted paraphrase there of the data).

Rather damning.

Make it 54%. They forgot to ask me. What kind of government do you have when the majority of American citizens are hoping someone will blow it up. Unlike 9/11 which involved innocent civilians, if there were some kind of disaster in the American Capitol, I am truely not sure how American citizens would react.
 
I imagine it would be a sense of relief, kind of like the serfs would have felt if the Lord's castle suddenly crumbled to the ground.
 
Americans no longer feel vested with their own government. The Government is the Government, and we are us. At one time, we were all the same. We were all the same people. We are not the same anymore. We are two opposing factions.
 
One side imposes 'Law', while ignoring it themselves, and exempting themselves and their friends. The other side just wants to be left alone. Battle lines are drawn.
 
You want my land? My money? My children? My future? My health? My whole life itself? Well then, come and get it.
 
I am waiting for Congress to enact the jus primae noctis any day now...

You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.

I've put up several posts here over the past year, saying that the time was right for the emergence of a new political party. Not a "third" party, a NEW party.

If the Republicans keep marginalizing themselves in D.C. -- even if they WIN the Senate this fall, and then do essentially nothing with their newfound majority -- there is still going to be "undercurrents" building for a new party.

So either laugh off this poll as an outlier, or.... ?
