This survey about "things Americans fear" in October would have Halloween written all over it. But it doesn't, it ended up focusing on real stuff. I thought the clown thing would at least rate some. Nope!

1. Corrupt government officials, 61% of us are afraid of it.

2. Terrorist attacks, 41%.

3. Not having enough money for the future, 40%.

4. Being a victim of terror, 39%.

5. Government restrictions on guns and ammo, 39%.

8. Identity theft, 37%.

9. People you love getting seriously ill, 36%.
