Some polls from Rasmussen Reports:
  • Barack Obama’s presidential index rating shows that 28% of American voters strongly approve of his performance while 37% strongly disapprove, giving Obama a presidential approval index rating of –9.
  • Overall, 48% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of Barack Obama’s performance and 50% disapprove.
  • Among American voters, 55% of voters say that Obama’s proposed budget does not cut spending enough.
  • Only 31% of voters think America is generally heading in the right direction.
  • Just 28% of voters believe the government today has the consent of those it governs.
  • Among American voters, 57% at least somewhat favor repeal of the health care law while 38% are at least somewhat opposed. Those figures include 45% who strongly favor repeal and 31% who strongly oppose repeal.
On Day163, I posted about the “Health Care Compact”, a constitutional method for an unlimited number of states to band together and legally refuse to participate in the federal government’s mandated health care bill, which a significant majority of Americans want no part of. Check out Day163 for the details. The compact is a fairly simple and highly effective concept. The most exciting element of ratifying compacts is the fact that Barack Obama, or any elected president, does not have to sign it and he cannot veto it. It becomes law after the House and Senate. And once two states establish the compact, precedent is set and other states can join, gaining momentum state after state. Currently, more than half the states in America are eagerly pursuing the Compact at the state level.

In fact, today Arizona took a huge step toward the Compact. This is an article from

Arizona Senate approves states’ rights measures

"Vowing to push back against Washington, the state Senate's majority Republicans want Arizona to join other states in a compact to challenge the federal health care overhaul and its mandates on individuals.

The Senate approved the health care compact bill Thursday as it also voted for a Republican bill to declare that federal government has no power to regulate commerce that doesn't cross state lines.

The intrastate bill would make it a low-grade felony for a federal official or a misdemeanor for an Arizona public employee to attempt to enforce federal regulations that violate the proposed state law.

Democrats voted against both bills, which now go to the Arizona House."

Check out for more details.

1,611.3 miles to go.
