9. I know "other countries do this." But America, for whatever reason, does not. Reasons...

...are many and historical. Diversity of population is one. Try to herd these cats. Geography is certainly a part of it: America is most of an entire continent, unlike, say, France. Culturally and politically, we are sharply divided and that is along geographical lines as well.

I could come up with more, but the bottom line is that we have to use our energies in other ways, and historically we have done so.

Sign up with Indivisible, for starters. Go to those town halls when your congressman is home. This is working. Attempting to get a "general strike" going will not.
