107. Apathy for one.
2)The corporate politicians and MSM keep us divided (divide and conquer) by non-issues (because they do not have the "right" to legislate morality) like abortion and gay marriage...etc..any reasoning, honest person knows that their "rights" end when they infringe on the "rights" of others. Yet "they keep these "issues" stirred up in order to divide the masses.
3) most Americans have no idea that the citizens of (Europe for example) have demanded and gained "rights" (universal healthcare, living wages, strong Unions, strong corporate regulations, Actual progressive tax rates, paid vacations...)
4) since raygun ended our FAIRNESS DOCTRINE, we have been under constant corporate attack by the corporate MSM. The media has NO obligation to "report" the truth and are actually encouraged to lie in order to advance the elitist agenda.
5) Our educational system has been purposely dismantled so that most graduates lack basic reasoning skills that would lead them to realize the basic unfairness of our system.

These are a few reasons we "don't", and lack the basic skills so that we "can" organize. I misspoke when I said "we can't", unfortunately most do not understand why we should or even the improvements we have lost since we have failed to maintain the pressure on the elites.
We "can" organize, unfortunately the rampant misdirection that Americans are constantly subjected to, make the possibility of "we will NOW organize and demand our freedoms", unlikely.
