    their responsibilities of citizenship as paramount. In addition to that they think they have a holy mandate to enact change.

    On our side part of our  culture is a rejection of "square culture". Honestly I know a bunch of people who are worn down and they think it is uncool to vote. It's caring too much. It's being a chump.

    Durin the two people driven movements you speak of, there was not a national preoccupation with being cool.

    I know I sound like a jerk, but I think I have a good point.

      The Tea Partiers are fucking right about one thing: the responsibilities of citizenship are paramount.

      The problem with democracy is that we get what the average person votes for...or fails to vote against.
