Poll after poll reveals the same fact: Americans aren't happy with the federal government. The poll conducted last week by Fox News shows that Americans still think their country is in trouble -- in more ways than one.
Six in 10 voters think it is likely terrorists are living in their hometown (60 percent). That’s up from 48 percent who felt that way in 2007, the last time the question was asked, and back to about what it was nine months after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. [...]
The 60-percent majority that says the country is still in a recession is actually down from 74 percent in 2014. The high-water mark came in 2010 when 86 percent of voters said the country was in recession. [...]
Just over half of voters -- 53 percent -- say the Obama administration has not been “competent and effective” in managing the federal government. [...]
Clearly, it's time for a change. A Convention of States, called under Article V of the U.S. Constitution, can force the federal government to be fiscally responsible, limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, and limit the terms of office for federal officials.
That means the federal budget would be balanced, over-regulation would cease, and career politicians would be a thing of the past.
