Why do we prefer the status-quo?

Reader comment on item: A 1914 Novel's Prescient Vision of Londonistan

How CAN any one with common sense agree with this sentence ? slamists declaim how Muslims reached the Americas in the tenth century a.d. and that Islam had a leading role in the writing of the U.S. Constitution.

Reading this is rather disturbing, however we must unfortunately agree with the fact that in England as well as most of Europe, Islam has made head ways that if not stopped will keep growing to capture more and more grounds. And by the way, America also will follow. As long as politicians and governments insist on getting their votes to be elected or re elected by being nice to them, by succumbing to their demands (a small example: halal food in schools) we won't make any progress in reducing their penetration in our midst which will eventually become theirs. So if our supposed leaders don't act, is it not time fore the individual to manifest his or her disappointment? We have sadly grown to be satisfied and complacent preferring the status-quo and letting others to take care of everyone's problem.
