Still sitting down on their couches rather then getting into the streets in protest?

Probably for the same reason 4 out of 5 eligible Americans fail to vote; they just don't give a damn nor do they have any sense of the civic engagement neccesary to keep a democracy functioning.

When and where were you last at the barricades, waco ?

"Most people fancy themselves innocent of those crimes of which they cannot be convicted." Seneca

"Hope has two children: anger, and courage." Augustine, Confessions

Der Verzagten aber und Ungläubigen und Greulichen und Totschläger und Hurer und Zauberer und Abgöttischen und aller Lügner, deren Teil wird sein in dem Pfuhl, der mit Feuer und Schwefel brennt; das ist der andere Tod.

Most of what you see for people involved with protests on the street are those who don't work. Or those that work for Soros and the New World Order.
Many are college students being radicalized by their professors who hand out A's for students for their social, political and liberal qualities.

The government has no rights. Only the PEOPLE have rights that empower the government.

This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it.
Abraham Lincoln

Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It is they way it is. The way we cope with it, is what makes the difference.

Correct ... and not only in November, be sure to vote in the primaries as they are just as important ... or the only options in November will be someone you don't want!

Because the voters have no leadership in their ranks to counsel how to keep America free and alive with a responsible sound government.

You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time. Abraham Lincoln
&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it.
