http://www.tetrahedron.org/articles/info_schedule_battle/Anti_Government_Phobia.html

This study conclusively demonstrates that unfounded fear of government is a recognizable mental illness, closely related to paranoid schizophrenia. Anti-Government Phobia (AGP) differs from most mental illnesses, however, in that it is highly infectious and has an acute onset. Symptoms include extreme suspiciousness, conspiracy-mongering, delusional thought patterns, staunch "us against them" mentality, withdrawal from reality, and often religious fanaticism. Having the patient committed to a qualified mental health institution is the best option for family and loved ones. For this reason, all psychiatrists and family physicians should be provided with educational materials which will help them recognize the various symptoms...

    Compare "Credulous Personality Disorder (formerly Pseudoneurotic Gullibility):"

    "The lifetime prevalence of Credulous Personality Disorder has been reported to be between 0.1% and 99.9% in the general population, but it is not known whether such reports can be trusted since there is evidence to suggest that a large number of these studies were performed by researchers suffering from the disorder. At present, it seems safe to say that the disorder is very common in the general population (perhaps approaching 100%). The severity of the symptoms, however, differ dramatically across individuals. It seems that the disorder is very common in both in-patient psychiatric settings and out-patient mental-health clinics, but it rarely represents the presenting disorder. Many clinicians also suffer from Credulous Personality Disorder, which makes diagnosis and treatment of the disorder very difficult. These clinicians not only tend to believe the overly credulous pronouncements of their clients, they also are much more likely to believe that untested or falsified treatment modalities actually work.... In almost all cases, Credulous Personality Disorder has a chronic course. Few remissions of symptoms have been observed in people who are fully or partially conscious. In the few cases of recovery that have been reported, there is reason to suspect that the reporting clinicians were suffering from the disorder and, thus, the accuracy of their reports can be questioned."

    Presumably this diagnosis would apply to partisans who believe their preferred politicians' promises that another government program will solve everything.

    That's the beauty of bullshit. You can use obscure facts to support idiot speculation and because it's an opinion, no one can prove you wrong.

    Bush being responsible for 9/11 for example. Yes it was weird Building 7 collapsed. Yes when compared to controlled demolitions they look similar. Yes there were conflicting reports that some people might have heard explosion. Conclusion? 9/11 was an inside job!!!!!! There's no other possibility!!!

    If you wrap yourself in a bubble of stupidity and only allow the facts you personally like to penetrate your shield, you can believe all sorts of bullshit.

    I'm surprised that you would allow for even that much speculation into the matter. The Building 7 conspiracy is pure jive, bubba. FWIW I was Blaster Assistant for Raytheon in the early eighties, so I might should know a little something something about demolition. I've been all up and down that footage like a monkey on 50 foot of grapevine, and there was nothing that fell under the Eye of Chunderâ„¢ to arouse an iota of suspicion.

    This study...

    That's as far as I can get in any article that talks about a "Study".
    A study has become to mean a Liberal assertion.
    I don't even hold them in the same esteem, I held the "Mayan Apocalypse" fear mongering, that the Liberal media got people who play Scientist on TV to tell the world was going to rip apart back in December.

    Notice Liberal propaganda ministry always says "Study" so nobody challenges them on their bullshit. If they called it "Research", then people would want to see the facts, instead of listening to opinions.

    Reminds of an Asshole talking to me last year, he told me he compiled a "Database". I was impressed, because this guy didn't seem technical. So I asked him, "what Database did you use?"
    He said, "Oh no, uh I mean I've been saving emails, that support my research."

    I just didn't have the heart to ask him what he called "Research".

    Lack of facts and valid points combined with his behavior is why he is a nut job.
    We live in a modern democracy where the people can change the government every 2 years. Yet there are people who think the tyrannical government is coming with swat teams to take away their property. This is bizarre and irrational thinking that can only be attributed to paranoia and mental illness.
    Use your vote to overthrow the government, not assault weapons that stand no chance against tanks.

    The government already behaves like this on a daily basis. Ever seen a raid on a raw dairy farmer who was "not in compliance" with the crony FDA laws? Did you see the military style raid on kim.com (founder of megaupload) on his family's house in NZ?
    I think too much trust in the government is a mental illness and a sign of lazyness.

    A phobia is a fear of something, so anti-government phobia, would be the irrational fear of all these "well educated" statists smuggards that blame tea party people for everything that's wrong all the time.

    I claim to be victim of the politicians you dumb motherfuckers are putting into office.

    The two Bush wars cost this country thousands of lives, $1.5T of past costs over the previous decade-plus and about that if not more over the next few decades.

    Unrestrained free trade and our strong dollar policy has eviscerated the socio-politics here, increasingly making this place a country of haves and have-nots.

    Conservatives getting things deregulated in the 1990s and then letting their business buds run free in the 2000s resulted in the US running up a historic debt leverage ratio:
