A follow up to the previous blog. Colim Kaepernick”s sit down like that of the two sprinters at the Mexican Olympics years ago, can be considered an expression of the  1st amendment although we may consider it to be disrespectful to our and their country. It is not treason. And  may be a drastic measure to call attention. Such action must be judged in the righteousness of the cause.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 96% of Likely U.S. Voters who support Trump are angry at the current policies of the federal government, including 65% who are Very Angry. But only 36% of voters who favor Clinton share that anger, with just five percent (5%) who are Very Angry. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Among all likely voters,  67% are angry at the policies of the federal government, including 34% who are Very Angry, consistent with surveying since 2009.
While 58% of Trump supporters think the federal government rarely or never does the right thing, just nine percent (9%) of Clinton voters agree.
Sixty-six percent (66%) of voters who support the Democratic nominee believe the federal government today is a protector of individual liberty. Among supporters of the Republican nominee, 89% think the federal government is a threat to individual liberty instead.
Thirty-six percent (36%) of all voters believe the government rarely or never does the right thing, the highest level of criticism in three years. Only 32% consider the federal government today a protector of individual liberty.

  1. So Kapernick, AS AN INDIVIDAL, gets to make a statement in San Francisco, some, BUT NOT ALL, of the St. Louis Rams get to run out of the tunnel with their hands up (anti-police in Ferguson, MO) but the Dallas Cowboys, AS A TEAM, are forbidden from wearing a patch to honor the five slain policemen in Dallas. Pretty sad.
