why? I think because USamericans are fearful people. they are fearful, 
because they never learned to talk about their problematic history. 
genocide and slavery. they just inherit the guilty consciousness 
unprocessed from generation to generation. therefor they only feel safe, 
when they are protected by a big brother. they live with the idea of the 
survival of the fittest (make the rich richer). they never gave black 
people compensation for their exploitation (nor any other group). as a 
matter of fact this is not only US history, but western history in 
general, but european countries experienced worldwar II and I think they 
changed their way on communal thinking about racism and so on. there was 
some shift in common notion and also the wish to keep this notion alive.
USamericans subconsciously still fear revenge. and even worse, some of 
them even think it is a good idea to have a small, rich, educated 
leading elite that controls the big majority of people. they propose a 
free market, which I see rather as a free slave market, because 
preconditions are not fair at all for all people. they try to oppress 
every effort of union building and their voting system is a "the winner 
takes it all". in europe it took green parties more than 20 years to 
make it into gouvernments. in the US this is not possible, because with 
anything less than 50% you are nothing.
and of course the US has a media that is owned by a handful of people, 
and an education system including universities that aligns itself more 
to the needs of companies and corporations than to the values of life.
that's why "they" still vote for one of the two big parties.
with the fall of the dollar, the raise of china, some bank crashs, more 
and more unemployed people, no health care, no social security I think 
people will start to vote differently within the the next 10-20 years.
