    absolutely nothing, say it again."

    (From above):
    "Nothing seems to stop these people and there is no force in our "democracy" that seems to be up to the task of making things right."

    A million people in the streets doesn't do much good when the polls show that 60% of the public approves.  60% equates to 200 million or so.  
    Probably, the approach will have to be slow and patient. But where to start.  It seems impossible with a divided public that is completely surrounded by daily propaganda from the Ministry of Truth.  
    How does AIPAC do it?  How does the NRA do it?  They in effect threaten the reelection chances of the politicians and deny them their place in the revolving door.  Could voters do that?  Better yet, could enough voters do that?   It's hard to get it rolling because every effort, not only here in this country but virtually every citizen revolt in any country is immediately coopted by the big money and infrastructure of the oligarchy/plutocracy.
