SOVIET UNION 2.0? Most Americans Worried The U.S. Is Turning Into A “Police State”

Police gather to remove demonstrators from the area around Lafayette Park and the White House before President Trump's walk to St. John's Church.

A new Rasmussen poll published on Thursday revealed that a substantial majority of Americans harbor concerns about the United States potentially evolving into a police state characterized by censorship, mass surveillance, targeting of political adversaries, and ideological indoctrination.

The survey found that an overwhelming 72% of respondents expressed concerns regarding the nation’s trajectory towards a police state. Among these respondents, 46% indicated that they were “very concerned” about this prospect. In contrast, a mere 23% reported having no concerns about this issue, while less than 10% claimed to be “not at all concerned.”

The poll delved further into the public’s sentiment by posing a question about the FBI. When asked whether they agreed with the statement, “The FBI is a danger to the freedom and security of law-abiding Americans,” half of the respondents expressed agreement. Notably, a significant majority among them indicated that they “strongly agree.” Conversely, 45% of those surveyed disagreed with the statement, with 26% registering strong disagreement.

Diving deeper into the partisan divisions, the survey highlighted distinctions among Republicans and Democrats. Among Republicans, 45% “strongly agree” with the statement, while 23% “somewhat agree.” On the other hand, among Democrats, 36% expressed strong disagreement, and 22% leaned towards somewhat disagreement.

The poll also inquired whether respondents believed that Democrats or Republicans posed a more substantial threat to fundamental liberties in America. A notable 76% of Republicans and 65% of Democrats believed that the opposing party constituted the greater threat. In contrast, 26% of Democrats and 20% of Republicans perceived their own party as the more significant threat to basic liberties.

  1. “Police State”? Americans don’t really understand the basic liberties that they have comparatively to other countries.

    For example the Israeli government right now is set to pass a bill officially legalizing facial recognition cameras for surveillance in public areas.

    Public safety or Big Brother?

  2. WOKE/BLM and MAGA seem to be in agreement. Perhaps they should ban politically motivated prosecutions (it would take a ban against selective prosecutions especially on novel theories, a repeal of the sedition and criminal libel laws, and rules that if in a given case there are substantial calls for prosecution in the media the defendant gets to choose the venue for the trial and to object to a judge who in the past was allied with or appointed by the faction calling for the prosecution). They should probably ban all forms of “Lawfare” (politically motivated lawsuits) by limiting lawsuits to individuals claiming actual provable damages and require a party make a “lawfare” claim to pay attorney’s fees to the other party in cases where the “lawfare” claim was not proved in full.

  3. The Democratic Party has been taken-over by the followers of:
    Karl Marx, Stalin, Chairman Mao, Fidel Castro, Kim Jong Un,
    Saul Alinsky, George Soros, and Klaus Schwab of the WEF.

    The new goal of the new Democratic Party goal is to eliminate:
    democracy, freedom, civil rights and the Constitution;
    and replace them with a totalitarian dictatorship,
    where Islam is the only tolerated religion,
    and where The Democrats are the only legal party,
    and anyone who criticizes The Democrats,
    or disagrees with The Democrats, will be jailed or killed.
