There are 7 million americans in prison,that's twice the total US population of the founding fathers era...mainly courtesy of absurd drug laws propagated by the ALCOHOL and US PRISON INDUSTRY.....how long until they put these so called criminals to work like in China?

America prides itself for being a leader in many things as a nation but one statistic that we should not be proud of is the fact that the United States, the “land of the free”, imprisons more people than any other country on the planet, including China! The U.S. has over 2.3 million people behind bars while China, with 4 times the population has only 1.6 million. That’s right, with only 5% of the world’s population the U.S. incarcerates 25% of the world’s prisoners and people are imprisoned for things like writing bad checks and drug use that wouldn’t even get a prison sentence in many countries.

Would they be disappointed in the division between the parties, yes. Would they be disappointed in how the government they set up is working, no. It is working exactly as they wished.

Thirty percent of the American public don't know much about anything. So I don't think much of this poll.

If the founding fathers saw the USA today, first they would be amazed at the change. Politically, they would be happily surprised at the strength and tenacity of the US Constitution, i.e., the democracy they designed held up despite everything that's happered over the last 226 years.

I believe they would be advocating another revolution... all the government interference in their lives they fought, died and lost fortunes over all all back and worse. NSA, IRS, phone scandals are just the tip of the iceberg.. and it is a REPUBLIC not a democracy... read the founders they hated democracies.

Obama 7 out of 10??? what have you been smoking as I'm sure it isn't legal.... He'd have a hard time to crack zero in my book and all his supporters rate about the same..
