Sadly, no, they are not paid. These people are your die-hard, republican-democrat crowd. They have been taught to choose the lesser of two evils. They believe the financial system is too hard to understand and that only Yale graduates can guide the country and its monetary system. These are the people who are ushering you your fascist police state. They are the majority. They are the ones who don't question the system. They are the status quo.
I wish they were paid off. But the reality is much darker. They are simpleton know-nothings who don't understand history, politics, economics, freedom. And they are coming to a voting booth near you.

The question now: In the future (10-20yrs) do you think the "status quo" majority of the population are going to be that same demographic. I've been thinking about this, with all these drastic changes in political policies and world events are the voters (who tend to be what age bracket 40+?) when this generation has seen what it's seen in such a short time, is the future for voting going to follow the same pattern. Bad President/Good President scenario as the previous generation(s) have tended to vote. Maybe they want the change to an "Independent" canidate that actually wins, only to find the economy to collapse to blame the "radical change" in voting.
