"Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. "

The above is from the Declaration of Independence.

People will put up with a lot of grief, before they directly oppose their government.

Obama, the Democrats, the media, most Republicans and the government bureaucracy are all trying to see just how far they can push American citizens before those citizens take other action to free themselves from the yoke the above have placed on them.

We the people are also curious about ourselves, how much we will take, are willing to suffer, or tolerate, before we push back.

I think about America’s slow awakening at WWII, which exacerbated
the losses to Great Britain, how grand the scale had to become understanding that God surely knew the price for that delay.

Sadly, it always seems to take mortal fear for our very lives before man is willing to engage in a correction, thus resistance becomes more costly than if we had reacted early on.
