    Report: Majority Of Government Doesn't Trust Citizens Either

    Excerpt:
    At a time when widespread polling data suggests that a majority of the U.S. populace no longer trusts the federal government, a Pew Research Center report has found that the vast majority of the federal government doesn't trust the U.S. populace all that much either.

    According to the poll—which surveyed members of the judicial, legislative, and executive branches—9 out of 10 government officials reported feeling "disillusioned" by the populace and claimed to have "completely lost confidence" in the citizenry's ability to act in the nation's best interests.

    I must say, using the Onion and Jon Stewart as sources puts you on a pedastal in my book.

    It's a satirical new site, thank you very much. Of course, like most great satire, it's the kernel of truth that really strikes to the heart of things.

    And I'm hoping you realize that I've been reading the Onion since around 1990 when my daughter mailed me copies from Madison, WI. The real question is do you realize how lame that sounded? If I supported it as a source, that would suggest I read it. If anyone reads the Onion and confuses it for real news, that would be a concern. Although I would wonder about John Boehner.

    Our founding fathers certainly did not trust the populace, which is evident in our representative republic (as opposed to a straight democracy, which many people incorrectly assume).
