The way that the 10% controls the 90% is by keeping the majority of the people content enough so that they don't care to vote. One way to get people to vote is to provide an incentive for people to vote.
e.g. The IRS allows a person to claim a personal exemption for themselve. If you changed the rules and allowed the personal exemtion only if the person voted, you would get a lot more people voting.
The point here is that you need to be specific in your protest in order to get something done. Focus on ways to get the people to vote on issues which change the rules that allow the 10% to control the other 90%.
