not enough people in America care. They don't care about our government, our laws, or our system. As long as they can go to McDonalds and get a burger, check facebook on their iphone, and watch American Idol....they are happy.
I think it will take quite a lot to make people care. For us as a country, it took a lot to wake up the people to the tyranny of England. There was a clear 'us' vs. 'them' and their was enough public discomfort that was directly caused by the British that people acted. We are decades away from that I believe, if it ever comes.
