Why aren't people rioting in the streets?

That's the question asked by Roger Kimball.

When is Governor Paterson up for re-election? And what about the New York State legislators, the men and women who connive in this orgy of fiscal irresponsibility, when are they up for re-election–or, rather, when can the people get together and throw the bums out?
Throw the bums out? Yeah, right. It's the people of New Fucking York who elected the bums in there in the first place. And being the good little indoctrinated slaves that they are, they will continue to elect their masters no matter how badly their masters whip them and beat them.

They are subjects, not citizens. They won't be throwing anybody out.
