If American's are disappointed with the actions of their government why are we so politically apathetic?
The U.S. is arguably the one of the most free nations in the world yet only about half of the U.S. votes. This is a curious statistic to one who considers that the civic processes of the U.S. are supposed to be contingent "for the people, by the people." We have the power to affect positive change... so why don't we? We elect our Congressional representation and we are adequately able to monitor their votes. We are able to assemble and speak freely our mind concerning policy. So why so much stagnation on Capitol Hill? And why blame anyone but ourselves?
