Waking the sleeping giant in the United States

What's happening with people in the United States? Do we find ourselves in a time warp? Recent protests throughout the country are reminiscent of the 1950s and 1960s. Have the people in the United States finally removed their blinders? Have they finally realized that's not water on their head, that it's really pee?

Whatever the reason, it's high time for this political unrest to address the issues that are important to the people of The United States and not just big business. Now that the moment has been seized, keep the pressure on by staying informed of political issues, holding officials accountable for their decisions and exercising the right to vote.
