Just an observation.....the Leftists in this country are heard. They march on DC, Occupy, and get out and vote to elect Representatives that support their beliefs.
The Right.....well, I don't think they are heard quite as well. They don't march on DC, don't Occupy, and don't bother to get their brethren out who share their beliefs to the polls and vote.
What I find ironic is that a majority of the Baby Boomers that are the current Right were the Left in their younger days. They participated in demonstrations around this country during the Civil Rights movement and Vietnam War periods. It was that same group who started the "Vote" initiative.
Appears to me nowadays that complacency has taken over the Right and express their frustrations on internet forums and maybe an occasional march on a state capital (which doesn't get shitaccomplished). Silence is golden....and perceived as approval.
The Right is not being heard because the motivation to bring about change in the manner that they did in their younger years is no longer practiced.http://news.yahoo.com/thousands-march-gun-control-washington-164306917.html
