How Do You Lean?
In this time of turmoil, every syndicated news market reports the top news stories with its own twists and biases. There is no such thing as “Fair and Balanced” reporting no matter how well meaning anchors and reporters may be. It is only natural for bias to guide personal opinions.
Reading and listening to the news can be quite distressing for us Americans. The economic situation is the worst it has ever been. Unemployment is soaring out of control; the U S is deeper in debt each day, and there is pain and sorrow at the loss of some of the best and brightest service members.
Unfortunately, this country is in trouble, the likes of which, we have not experienced since the war protests of the 70’s.
Republicans and Democrats are at odds with everything from health care to balancing the budget. One party blames the other for the country’s economic problems, and they both blame the grassroots Tea Party.
Some point fingers to President Obama, the President blames Congress, and the American people are fed up.
I’ve seen, and taken, a number of surveys; Presidents approval ratings, Congress’ approval ratings, and so on. Most have similar outcomes, but there are questions I would like to see asked.
In my quest to have some real answers, I am asking YOU, the reader, to take this very short survey. I hope to get a more accurate picture of how Americans feel about the situations we face in America, as well as, how those around the world see the American people and the nation’s issues at this time.
Thank you, in advance, for taking the time to complete this survey. Please answer as close to your opinion as possible. Feel free to add comments below, but please keep your comments free from vulgar language and denigrating rhetoric.
