Democracy in our times

richardskull614: To alfonslof Democracy in our times
Is it true? What I read in the spinpaper (newspaper)? The viewers of a popular TV show, Jericho were upset the show was scheduled to be cancelled so they flooded the network offices with emails and sent them truckloads of nuts. I find this quite curious indeed. It also disgusts me.
You see, these days the vast majority of US citizens hate the president (and basically all involved with the executive branch). Our VP might as well be Darth Vader he’s such a swell fellow. What do we do about it?
For a stupid freakin’ TV show there is an outpouring of action from many of the same people. The same people who vote (or perhaps not). You’ll email network execs when your favorite show is threatened. Yet when was the last time you emailed you representative in congress?
