Learned Helplessness

Hello, I have been thinking of the country's current conundrum of who to vote for and why we are in the current situation. I also got to wondering how in the world some American citizens could back a known Socialist like Bernie Sanders or even a Progressive Democrat like Hillary. In my research I came across this term and I think that is what is affecting the majority or Americans. They have been kicked and taxed into submission so far and for so long that there is no fight left in many of them. The Wiki article talks about the experiments and the conclusions and I think it hits it on the head. Read and let me know what you think, am I on track or out to lunch?

    Some call it paid submission. they would rather have one obamadollar now than ten real dollars later and don't even try to explain those two in light of 1933 or 1999 values. Their other reaction is sniffing around to see who offers the most just as we sniff around to see who offers to take the least Either way it's OPM.
