Military Review

Americans trust the army, police and Congress less and less: data from a Reagan Institute poll

93

Traditionally, US citizens have treated their army with great reverence as one of the most important social institutions and a key component of American military and political might. The high rating of the armed forces seemed to be very difficult to shake.


But the political instability in the United States in the summer-fall of 2020 and early 2021 took its toll. Americans trust their military less and less, as evidenced by the results of a sociological study published by the Ronald Reagan Institute.

According to the study, only 56% of American citizens surveyed admitted that they have great confidence in the army and military. In 2018, 70% of Americans surveyed fully trusted the military. Thus, confidence in the armed forces decreased by almost 15% over three years, and, note, this is without any "new Vietnam" and similar events. There is no doubt that the only reasonable explanation for such a drop in confidence can only be the dissatisfaction of ordinary Americans with the role that the army plays in the country's political process.

By the way, the rating of trust in the police has dropped even more: now only 39% of Americans trust "cops", and in 2018 50% of US citizens still fully relied on the American police. But in this case, the drop in the rating is understandable: in recent years, an unprecedented campaign has been carried out in the United States to discredit law enforcement agencies.

On the one hand, the police were shown as ruthless racists killing civilians, on the other hand, they were exposed in an unflattering light, forcing them on their knees to ask for forgiveness from black fellow citizens. Both that, and another extremely negatively affected the image of the police.


With the military, everything is more difficult: most likely, the fall in the trust rating is associated with the introduction of units of the National Guard and the army into American cities, after which an ordinary American man in the street saw that the very US Army, in which he hoped and hoped, would, if ordered, mercilessly deal with by himself.

However, only 6% of American citizens who participated in the survey do not completely trust the military. This, of course, is also a lot, but not critical, so not everything is lost for the US Armed Forces in terms of popular confidence. Much will also depend on the position of the American press with regard to the armed forces. So far the mass media are not allowed to make such a "swoop" as to the police in relation to the army, and this also has a positive effect on the rating of trust.

However, when compared with other major state institutions, the US Army and even the US police significantly benefit from the perception of citizens. For example, only 21% of respondents trust state education - almost 2 times less than the police. Only 33% are fully confident in the health care system, and it is possible that the consequences of the pandemic will further reduce this indicator.

As for the US Congress, the mainstay of American democracy, only 10% of compatriots trust congressmen. Five years ago it was more than three times that number. This, by the way, is an indicator of real support from the society, which both Democrats and Republicans can count on.

          Americans trust the army, police and Congress less and less

          No wonder they don't trust!
          Joe Biden infiltrated the White House by hook or by crook, providing himself with a majority in both chambers of Congress and total loyalty of the mainstream, albeit with a left-leaning bias, as well as the support of the media and all-powerful social networks!
          What else could aging President Joe Biden dream of? It would seem, reign, lying on your side!
          But who will believe him - who is so elected to the US presidency ?!
          Popular rumor has already joined in the search for the one who, instead of Joe Biden, really rules in the USA behind his back!

          Alas! The whole world is simply laughing and crying over the presidential elections in the United States!

            Such studies are quite possible are relevant not only for the United States itself, but for the whole world. Including for Russia, the EU and especially for Ukraine.
            If ordinary Americans as a "gray cardinal" under the proxy-president of the United States Baidan suspicion falls on Kamala Harris and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin et al., then more experienced political experts see in such a so-called. "Quiet Jew" Ron Klein - the current chief of staff of the White House.

            REFERENCE
            Ronald Alan Klain, 59 years old (born Ronald Alan Klain; born August 8, 1961, Indianapolis) is an American lawyer, political consultant and former lobbyist.
            Graduated from Harvard Law School.
            - Chief of Staff of the White House since January 20, 2021 in the Joe Biden administration.
            - Chief of Staff of US Vice Presidents Al Gore (1995-1999) and Joe Biden (2009-2011).
            He has been engaged in politics in the Democratic Party with the signal of his relatives-Democrats since childhood. [/ B] And in party affairs, he showed himself as a noteworthy narrow-minded Democrat.
            Ron has been associated with the current president since 1987 - he was an assistant to Senator Joe Biden when he first nominated himself for the presidency. In 2007, Ron Klein rejoins Biden when Biden tries his luck for the second time in the presidential election, but he himself withdrew from the primaries and supported the candidacy of Barack Obama.
            It was Ron Klein who put together the presidential team, and now coordinates its activities from the White House. In fact, Ron Klein acts as prime minister, even though there is no such position in the US constitutional hierarchy.

            Experts believe that it was not for this that the Democrats gained absolute power by an illegitimate - forged - "coup" in order to depend on the future elections in the United States and voluntarily give it to the opposition. The main task now for a democrat is to strengthen his party vertical of power. And its foreign policy is visible in the support of the transatlantic course of the United States, NATO and EU countries, and the same Ukraine,

            The credibility of the police, this is not a federal structure but a huge collection of various regional police and sheriffs, is falling for several reasons. Loss of trust on both sides of the future conflict, some for freedom, others for communism. Loss of confidence in the Armed Forces, due to the fact that the majority of the officers are for the Communists and against the established system: the Constitutional Republic. All talk about dermocracy in America is a deception, there has never been dermocracy here, dermocracy is terror of the majority. The state was established here to Protect individual rights, your individual rights from God / nature, they do not depend on the crowd. If states did not exist, you would still have personal rights to your body, to protect yourself, your personal opinion, your property. Your rights end where another person's rights begin. If you do not have a right over another person, why do you think that this right appears if you get together in a bunch, creating a state?

              dermocracy is the terror of the majority.
              Democracy is not the rule of the people or the terror of the majority. Democracy is the election of power. And nothing more.
              Democracy, i.e. the appointment of leaders by the people they govern is through fair and competitive elections. Such elections are considered legitimate, i.e. fair.
              The elected leader gains power. He has power, not the people who chose him. And it is these people in power who pass laws that are subject to implementation by the people in the country. And violation of the law will be punished.
              T.O., democracy operates only on election day, on election day. On this day, the people decide to whom to entrust power. Moreover, democracy takes place exactly at the moment when a person puts the ballot paper into the ballot boxes. The man has moved away from the urn - democracy has already ended for him and his power has disappeared. But he has rights that are enshrined in the Constitution and laws.
              And rights laws can be just and unjust. The people can agree with them or disagree, but they are obliged to fulfill them.

              TOTAL. In defining democracy, it would be more correct to proceed not from the etymology of this word, but from its semantics, that is, from its modern meaning. Namely.
              "Democracy (from the Greek demos - people and kratos - power) is a political regime in which the people or their majority serves as the source and bearer of political, state power."

              Therefore, they say that the people have the power that they chose for themselves or that they illegitimately imposed on them.

                Democracy is terror of the majority, if every law can be changed by a simple majority, then you are in chaos. There is no foundation of immutable laws on the basis of which you can build a society. In America, a Constitutional Republic and not a democracy, the state was created to protect INDIVIDUAL rights, the introduction of democracy into the American system ruined America. Democracy destroys all countries over time.

                  The terror of the majority in your understanding is closer to ochlocracy.

                  But in my case it is about the democratic - NATIONAL - election of power, which will then CONSTITUTE LAWS... Forget about ancient democracy, we are not talking about it.
                  In this case, elected officials-deputies NOT MOST in relation to the entire people and to the entire population of the country, but just exactly the MINORITY!

                  And this MINORITY, delegated by the people to power, is just capable of taking away all the freedom of speech and other rights from the people "from above". That is, it is capable of privatizing the state, as such, for itself, having actually carried out the GOSPEREVOROT "from above". And no Constitution and no Bills of Rights will be able to help the people, if the power structures are on the side of the "top", and not the people!

                      Yes, I read your comment carefully.
                      That's right - the United States has a Constitutional Republic. And what of this, if the Democrats closed access to social networks for Trump by prior secret collusion of the MINORITY - from the representatives of the globalist orientation of the US DEPARTMENT?

                      At the same time, American financiers-oligarchs, in collaboration with the owners of social networks Google, Facebook, Twitter, smuggled the insanely incapable Joe Baydan into the US presidency ?! Were they in the MOST ?! Everything was violated by them in the elections regarding Trump - both the Constitution and the Bill of Rights! It was only Trump who played by the rules, and the Baydenists did not.

          Well, how. Congress is now (with its current dominance of "fair" Democrats) sitting virtually in an emotional blockade. Do you think various BLM, antifa and other pro-democratic loudmouths and pogrom-mongers have disappeared? Yes, only there will be a reason and the lawlessness will resume. Moreover, under Trump, the Democrats needed this lawlessness and they encouraged and blessed him, but under Bidon, no. They dragged their old man onto the head and all right - calm down!
          But the dispersed "activists" do not think to drive them into the stall, they have now straddled the hobbyhorse of various harassment and racism. Just a little - shouting to the policeman - it's racism ...
          It is not for nothing that the nat is sitting in the Congress. guard. It would seem, well, put the police or their SWAT, but for some reason they still want the military.
          There already no one trusts anyone to the end, tk. the police have snapped at the state and state governors for past betrayals such as Democratic support for the "Defund the police" chant and the dissolution of entire local departments. Now there is no hope that the policeman will fulfill his duty to the end.
          A nat. the guards are still military, with regulations and so on. For some reason, they are trusted more.
          Why did you stop loving the army? Do you remember whether this army has any victories at all? The ones you would be proud of? (oh, there is no need to oppose our RF Armed Forces to the Americans - at least there are successes in Syria and the Crimea, and I don't want to hurt our police at all - something hasn't been working in it for a long time ...).
          The bustle in Iraq stretched out for years, Afghanistan became an anchor, and being in military bases around the world is not at all tantamount to what an army is supposed to do.
          There are no successes, no strategy, only empty provocative bombings on the direct political instructions of presidents who want to stupidly get a rating ...
          US citizens (not all, but at least someone) are beginning to understand that such an inflated military budget and annual injections of funds into weapons do nothing. Russia is as dangerous as it is, China as a competitor and a threat remains, Iran as a scarecrow remains so.
          Nothing has changed for years, and the budget is being sawed, and the military-industrial complex and their oligarchs rake in the heat.
          Meanwhile, unemployment is growing, with Covid in trouble, and more and more bankruptcies. Whole states of people will soon become homeless.
          What kind of trust is there? To whom?

        You can go to all kinds of human rights sites and look there. Offhand, it seems that in Switzerland there is a high level of trust in the authorities, in Latin America it seems to be in Costa Rica, although I could be wrong. As far as I know, Bhutan is home to the happiest people who don't get involved in politics. Probably, they are also quite happy with their monarch.) In Liechtenstein, people seem to trust the Grand Duke, the government, the parties, and the deputies.) But seriously, a lot depends on the mentality of the peoples. There are "harmful" peoples, such as the Italians and Greeks, who do not like any government, even if politicians and officials break into a cake.)

But there are fewer and fewer such easy prey in the world and there is a risk of getting a second Vietnam in the place of victory ... It is more difficult to increase trust in the police, the only way is to recruit blacks and all kinds of perverts from minorities there, because expressing distrust of such a police would be somehow intolerant ...

The American and even more so the Russian public knows little about how the truly electoral process works. Describing the whole system is very long, if you have any questions, I can answer if your question interests me.

      We are facing a possible civil war and extensive political repression.

        In the Russian Federation, there are also "primaries" in large parties - like, like in the United States. Ours are copying anything from there. Although initially the idea was to choose from among potential candidates the most promising in a particular territory. But this is a long story that turned into a farce with an imported name. But in the end - direct elections, as in the United States (except for the presidential). And extensive political repression awaits everyone, and the Russian Federation too. Imperialism is defending itself as best it can, nothing can be done about it.

    The credibility of the police, this is not a federal structure but a huge collection of various regional police and sheriffs, is falling for several reasons. Loss of trust on both sides of the future conflict. Loss of confidence in the Armed Forces, due to the fact that the majority of the officers are for the Communists and against the established system: the Constitutional Republic. All talk about dermocracy is deception, dermocracy is the terror of the majority. The state was established here to Protect individual rights, your individual rights from God / nature, they do not depend on the crowd. If states did not exist, you would still have personal rights to your body, to protect yourself, your personal opinion, your property. Your rights end where another person's rights begin. If you do not have a right over another person, why do you think that this right appears if you get together in a bunch, creating a state?

    Americans trust the army, police and Congress less and less

    And they trust themselves, or as in that joke: A man washes his jeans and condemns, no one can be trusted, not even himself)))
