I’m interested in learning what others here think about whether there is a “silent majority,” and, if so, just how major is it? I don’t mean Republican and Democrat, or even Left and Right, I mean the percentage of people who believe in live and let live and mostly want to be left alone by government.
I had been thinking there are a majority of Americans who want the federal government services we have (maybe even more), but the last election caused me to think that may not be a majority. Still hard to tell, since so many registered voters didn’t vote.
But the ferocity with which Leftists have been attacking this administration gives me more concern. On the surface it’s very loud, very vocal, very impressive, but each instance dissipates quickly and much of it is beginning to look a little flimsy; like the fake village the citizens of Rock Ridge constructed in Mel Brooks’ documentary, “Blazing Saddles.” I wonder if, like the Great and Powerful Oz, it may be smoke, mirrors and amplified sound and projected imagery in a panic to keep us from pulling back the curtain?
