14. I think it started
with the economic problems, the job loss, the corporate corruption scandals and the recession. Lots of people lost jobs. Those who found new jobs often found that they were not able to replace their ability to earn. That kind of direct financial impact tends to make people pay attention. And when they looked around they saw lots of stuff that made them even more uneasy. In my opinion if employment, jobs, and earning ability had remained stable then a large part of the population would have continued to be apathetic. It is all about the money. And a whole lot of folks have a whole lot less than they did when shrubbie took office.
