Why do some American's prefer to be ignorant about issues that will affect our Economy and the future of the United States?

I am baffled by some American's attitudes. They do not wish to read the documentation about important issues. They continue to blindly support one party or the other. Despite that it is clear that both parties support corporate interest, lobbyist, the wealthiest and themselves over the majority of American's.
I understand that people go to work and care for families. They do not wish to spend all their free time on Politics. It is still every American citizens responsibility to access and understand issues affecting our nation.
Why don't more American's comprehend that our Democracy and the rights American's have were not given to us. Our for fathers fought the Revolutionary War to obtain them. Maintaining our Democracy is hard work. It is every American's responsibility. If we do not watch over government and companies they will become corrupt.
How do we wake all American's up?

If the approval rating of Congress being the lowest of any institution since they've done polls is any indicator... America is starting to wake up.
Now if they can just refrain from getting suckered by these guys, that in light of those polls, are trying desperately to project a more moderate image of themselves.

They haven't changed. They're just saying what they now know people want to hear.
Many Americans knew the train had jumped the tracks well before the last election.
These guys didn't have a clue until well after the election.
That speaks volumes to the caliber of people we have on Capitol Hill and how much attention is being paid to the American people.
These guys are so focused on chasing money with their corporate cronies, they don't know what's going on with the people they're supposed to be working for.

I wouldn't vote for these bums if they were running for hall monitor at an elementary school... They'd be stealing the kids' lunch money.

Happy Monday Philosopher.

On AO I posted questions about Monsanto and Rare Elements. I received three or four intelligent responses on both subjects. Yes Karven we are not the only aware people but many pseudo intellectuals wish to deny reality.
They make me feel like screaming. There are so many well educated fools who lack a trace of common sense or any sense of reality. You can not force them into reality. They are deluded. Some have easy life's despite that they do nothing actually worthwhile. If they woke up they would be miserable. They prefer denial. I avoid them.
Happy Monday Karven and thank you for expressing your awareness. It gives me hope.
