    Do you feel confident in your national government and their actions?

    Are you confident that they are concerned about you and that they will not lie to you? Please remember to tell me what country you are in.

    I do not have confidence in my government. Mainly because it is bipartisan and will never be able to agree on what is right for the average person. United States.

    Not at all. Sept 11 was a date I will always remember because it underlined the inadequacy between the government and the people. It also revealed, not that I did not know it before (the Ellesberg affair, the sending of 18 years-old in Vietnam, Iraq...), that we, the people, were disposable at will.

    I do not see how anyone could have confidence in a two party system that acts like they are playing Chess. Why is it that the rich get bailed out and yet they cannot pay taxes but ride their jet planes and take vacations on tax payer money. Not only that why is it permissible to steal the funds paid in for years to Social Security and then act as if it is our fault we get it. Where is the good of all people and the right to spend years paying into a system and allow this to take place as.... oh well.......................................Let us say it is on the North American continent.

    I have confidence in America and the American people.  We are feisty enough that down the road, when we have finally had enough of politics as usual, we will take the constitutional steps necessary to uphold American values and send the "losers" and "carpet baggers" packing.  Until that day comes, I can endure until I can thrive again.  (A dedicated American)

    I live in the United States and have absolutely no confidence whatsoever in our government. I've come to feel thankful that Obama has been elected for a second term so that we can go ahead and get the worst over with ... perhaps when people truly see what a socialist government is like they will decide it is not quite so attractive as they thought it would be.

    No, it very difficult to believe them, their talk and actions never matches. They do exactly what they talk they stand for.
    Decisions after decisions are made which are not very pro people. They want to reduce poverty they are increasing it by their actions and deeds.
    The corruption in government at highest level and marriages of convenience is real problem.
