Propaganda is Working: Support for Sending US Ground Troops to Fight Islamic State Has Risen

Support for using ground troops in Iraq and Syria is climbing. 41% now say action against ISIS should include troops on the ground, up seven points from one month ago.

  1. This suggests that only 12 to 15% of the U.S. population is rational. Not enough to prevent the sociopaths controlling government from continuing to destroy wealth and well being. I believe it was Voltaire who said "Hide well to live well."

  2. It would be interesting to see how they conducted this poll. A lot of young people do not have regular land lines, and they are the ones who are most interested in peace and liberty and hold anti-war positions. If they conducted this survey by using land lines, then it is really a survey of older Americans. I would like to see a survey of young people only- that would at least give a better view of the future.

    I still am optimistic for the prospects for liberty long term, even though that survey is depressing.
