Never before have we Americans been so disenchanted with our political leaders.  According to a recent Gallup Poll, it's at a new record high.

Part of a week long study of  how Americans feel about the performance, and roll of government in their lives, Gallup is reported some startling statistics:

*82% disapprove of Congress and it's performance, 69% have little or no confidence in the legislative branch of government, a new alltime high, and 49% now believe government poses an actual threat to the freedoms and rights of ordinary citizens-a figure that was only 30%  8 years ago.  Also, starting in 2009, Americans belief and confidence, as well as approval of paid politicians has significantly dropped.
