      Unfortunately, I’m pretty sure that too many people don’t care about what happens, and the politicians depend on that fact to do what they’re doing right now. The number of people like us who do care and do want to do something about it grows smaller everyday.

      Then again, it was only 3 percent of the colonists who led and fought the Revolution that got this whole thing started.

I think a lot of people are dedicated right now, but not enough people are willing to act yet.
