The war. Hate it or love it oppose it or support it. Do any of you truly believe that it will make a difference to those who plan and execute wars?
The people of the USA simply don't have that clout. Will they ever? Probably not. Every time an issue arises that sends people into the streets, their organization crumbles and their energy dissapates as soon as it is percieved that they have reached their goal.
Americans are hopelessly "issue oriented". There are only two political parties here, if Americans were "program oriented" a third (or fourth) party would be possible.
Am I a cynic?
