I believe that part of our problem as a people is that we aren't really all on the same page when it comes to discussing important issues. Whether it is same-sex-marriage, gun control, or taxation, the overwhelming majority of our population, (unfortunately) including our legislators, simply don't have a clue about the reality of the situation or even the basic terminology in some cases.
I'm hoping this video will help fill a few cluebags. There are a list of references at the end. Now I don't expect anyone to actually go through and try to type out the references from the video, so I've done you a solid and listed them as hotlinks.
I kept getting a 404 error from the last link, but the MotherJones article is well-referenced for further reading.
