Interesting article at vdare.com( a "paleo-conservative" site):
George W. Bush’s latest disapproval rating (69 percent) is the highest of any president in the 70-year history of the Gallup poll. Faith in the economy, as measured by consumer confidence, has dropped to levels not seen since the great stagflation of late seventies/early eighties.
We are mad as Hell, and ought not to take it any more. But inauguration day is 240 days away. (Sigh.)
Some Americans have reached the point of no return. Literally.
A recent Barron’s article by Bob Adams analyzed the responses of 115,000 Americans polled by Zogby International. [A New Life In Panama, September 24, 2007]. Extrapolating the poll results Adams reaches these rather startling conclusions:
1.6 million U.S. households have already made the decision to leave the country
1.8 million are seriously considering and likely to leave
7.7 million are somewhat serious about leaving and may do so
3 million are seriously considering purchase of non-U.S. property
10 million are somewhat serious about purchase of non-U.S. property
