Why do people not care about this?
Because its not BAD enough, apparently. I still think we should start oeganizing one, and when we reach 35 million members or so, we can announce that if government doesn't shape up, we will shape them down.

Think about this - social security is now an international relief fund and we, the citizens who pay the bills, had no say in it, no vote - it's just happening. Yet we are assured the system is safe. What is going to happen when enough people either take up another spot at the momma-guv'ment nipple line or John Galt it the hell out of here?

I spent a few years in Mexico on a sailboat. While there, I got to know some locals in a few places. When we talked politics, I found how bad the taxes were in their families.
When I said, "Why don't you revolt?", they said it wasn't "bad enough. We still have enough to eat."
Probably "Slavery 101" in some political book somewhere. (sigh)
