American Revolution
This is astounding news.
reports for CNSNews, May 2, 2013, that a Public Mind national poll of 863 registered voters, conducted April 22-28, 2013 by Fairleigh Dickinson University, found that 29% or nearly 3 out of every 10 registered voters believe that an armed revolution might be necessary in the next few years in order to protect our liberties.
The poll, with a margin of error of +/-3.4, asked whether respondents agreed, disagreed, neither agreed nor disagreed or did not know or refused to respond to the statement: “In the next few years, an armed revolution might be necessary in order to protect our liberties.”
The results were:

  • 29% said they agreed
  • 47% percent said they disagreed
  • 18% said they neither agreed nor disagreed
  • 5% said they were unsure
  • 1% refused to respond

Those who believe a revolution might be necessary differ greatly along party lines:

  • 18% of Democrats
  • 27% of Independents
  • 44% of Republicans

Not surprisingly, there were fewer supporters of gun control (38%) among those who believe an armed revolution may be necessary than among those who do not believe in the necessity of an armed uprising (62%).
Dan Cassino, a professor of political science at Fairleigh Dickinson and analyst for the poll, says:
“The differences in views of gun legislation are really a function of differences in what people believe guns are for.  If you truly believe an armed revolution is possible in the near future, you need weapons and you’re going to be wary about government efforts to take them away.”
In fact, poll after poll found that Americans fear our government more than we fear terrorism.

  1. Now we know why Obama bought 2 billion hollow point bullets and thousands of armored vehicles for DHS for domestic use. Not to mention fixing up FEMA camps around the country. To say he’s a bad president is a gross understatement.

     
  2. Well, that’s about how much of the population fought the revolutionary war…… Against British gun control no less…

     
    • Exactly! It’s always one-third who stand up for what is right. Thus it was in the American Revolution for Independence, one-third of the colonists fought for independence. One-third of U.S. Catholics are orthodox in their faith and conservative in their values.

       
  3. I am discovering at an increasingly accelerated pace that I just may belong in the 29th percentile.

     
  4. No wonder one fears the government, especially with activities like this going on (reporting on your fellow citizens):

  5. “In fact, poll after poll found that Americans fear our government more than we fear terrorism.” Well, Hell yes, and rightly so! This one’s on its way as soon as I post it.

     
  6. Perfect love casts out fear.

    The one thirds-two thirds theme is found many places in scripture. This coming from a humble one-thirder.

     
  8. Hopefully the 1/3 have ‘nads of steel . That’s the only way will be won .

     
  9. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this fascinating post with the above-stated stats. I wonder if the “one-third” has some kind of symbolism relating to the Trinity?
