I've never been accused of being a suspected government spook before...although I did once start a rumor that I was a police officer when on vacation in the Bahamas to keep the pot dealers away from me on the beach.
For a few reasons. First, there's the "meet the new boss, same as the old boss" thing we're used to. Secondly, we all want to believe in our leader. After all he's one of us and has good intentions...he's just caught up in the game and has to play. Right? Third, what is the alternative? Take up arms against the government and kick off a bloody civil war or worse find yourself alone against the U.S. government...I think we'd all rather just bitch, moan and vote then go back to watching Game of Thrones with our microwaved movie-theater-buttered flavored popcorn.
I agree it is un-american, but too often harassment is defended by calling it "freedom of speech"
