Default Why the NRA is so Powerful?

...... I suffer from a very rare genetic defect that causes me to be sympathetic toward the International cause. There is no cure.

Good video, but what exactly does it have to do with the NRA's power?

Yeah I was wondering the same thing.
“Somebody has to speak for these people. Y'all got on this boat for different reasons, but y'all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything, I know this—they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, ten? They'll swing back to the belief that they can make people...better. And I do not hold to that. So no more runnin'. I aim to misbehave.” Mal Reynolds Serenity/Firefly

depressing video. Also, inaccurate. Having an effect on government performance is cumulative. It takes more than just a handful of people to pay attention. I would argue that even given the basic knowledge of what a democracy is, the decision to ignore the processes that make it work is not only irrational, it's stupid.

If you are crossing the street, you have a basic understanding of the consequences of being hit by a car. Only someone truly stupid would ignore the movement of the those cars and just walk out into traffic. Ignoring how a process works when it is something that can have an effect on your life is not rational.

The problem with voter apathy isn't about a cost-benefit anything. The problem is a fundamental misunderstanding of what the consequences are if one fails to understand the process.
