Default To summarize..

Since we keep hitting a rock when it comes to political representation of our problems, I would like to see if WE can summarize the reasons for this apathy.
As I see it, the reason we get overlooked when push comes to shove is that:
1) This is an election year and illegal immigration is more hot than anything else.
2) In the past we have taken this crap from lawmakers/enforcers and they cannot suddenly see our problems in the current instance where we are resisting their apathy
3) Politicians act only when the issue starts burning and creating untolerable pain for their stakeholders - we have tried to define these pain points to them in the form of outsourcing threat, brain drain etc., but really is there something that they would care about much more?
4) (Any ideas from you all?)
