Oh absolutely.

The USA has been in the pocket of big business since the Regan administration and those in power have always proven very hard to give up their power meaning we're likely to be screwed for decades to come.

If you mix state and religion, you get state. The problem is never religion, it is always state.

It's been like that even before Regan. Regan just made it official with his policies. Let's keep it real. This country's foundation was built on greed. And that's what it's comes down to. If you ain't making the government money, then f@&% you and get out of the way and good luck trying to make it.

You get a theocracy, which should never be a government of choice in a multicultural, multi-religious society. That, and you have the legislation of morality, which never works out well.

I feel strongly two ways about this country and for different reasons.

Positive: Within this country is truly a society of peace. We aren't burdened by warfare on our turf and our men and women aren't conscripted. As well as we don't experience corvee. We also have a lot of politicians and officials that really do care for the people. So many stood up that believed in the Occupy movement. Which let's face it, until certain people got out of hand, it was a peaceful movement and people weren't dying to stand up for what they believe. Granted the movement got a little out of hand and off topic, especially by those who never opened their mind enough to truly understand the ideals behind it. We have the choice to live our lives the way we want, with reason, and it's truly a society of peace.

Negative: The main issue I can see within the country itself is capitalism. I am not one of those who believes the rich are all greedy and bad, but a lot of people in power do prioritize money over everything. I mean, going to see the doctor or dentist for something you truly need can put you back five steps right when you just took one forward, and let's not even mention if you end up in the hospital for more than a day. There's also a lack of jobs and huge companies that are shrinking their staff due to making more cash. Our main banks as well as insurance companies do not fret over giving people charges they can't necessarily handle, and really have their prioritize on money over life.

Thomas Jefferson once said "If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered."

But in reality, this is exactly what is happening in our country. Like he foresaw the direction of this country. I also, and not to go into this any more, disagree with how much expenditure goes into wars we shouldn't be fighting. And then the facts are hid from us, the taxpayers, who fund these expenditures. Whether people from this country or another, life should be valued equally.


On a last note (TL;DR,) I think this is truly a great country and I really take pride in it. The people here do really get to experience peace and live their lives. However, I feel that there are important issues that need our attention and that we should strive to change. We can't let pride blind us from issues apparent in our country, but we need to do so calm and confidently, while also being thankful for what we do have.

40 Outrageous Facts Most People Don't Know About The Government:

http://www.in5d.com/40-outrageous-facts-most-people-dont-know.html

The 40th fact about the word government: 40. The etymology of government means to control the mind. From Latinised Greek gubernatio "management, government", from Ancient Greek κυβερνισμός, κυβέρνησις (kybernismos, kybernesis) "steering, pilotage, guiding", from κυβερνάω (kybernao) "to steer, to drive, to guide, to act as a pilot" plus Latin mente "mind".


Those sites are controlled by the Illuminati.They manipulate all media in order to blind the world to their true goal of lollipop distribution to third world countries. Nearly everything you see on the internet is fabricated by shadow organizations in order keep the attention of the masses away from such a large-scale operation. By keeping the sheep in ignorance, they are able operate their campaign in secret, while controlling the flow of hatred into alternate, non-existent, repositories of false operations. You are a closed-minded fool for trusting anything on the internet, and until you uproot your preconceived notions of truth, and break free from the hidden organizations that manage it, you will only despair at your own ignorance when the world becomes one that is filled with the glory of free lollipops.

Edit: And actually, the Latin "mente" roughly means "lollipop" -- your understanding only comes from definitions dictated by the Illuminati. The word government actually means "to guide the making of lollipops."

Wow, there you go, another joker that thinks he's so smart. You are just like the Illuminati who inverts the meaning of everything. Sarcasm is not a prerequisite to high intelligence. Anybody can be an asshole. I hope that you will make it. I have a feeling you believe that I am a fool, but whatever, I am not here to change people's minds, but to inform people which would lead to changing their own minds. I bet you are also think I'm a fool in believing in God's existence. I used to be a sheep as well and I would have not believed all of this stuff that I have been researching for the past year.

Any government eventually transitions to an oppressive government. America's almost there. Just as long as they don't touch my anime, I'm OK.

Right, so in google search, a hyphen before a word excludes the word that comes after it, so searching for "-Vega-" in Google is like searching for " " in Google. If you search for anything with a hyphen before it, you get no results. Your name wasn't removed for spreading the truth, it was removed for having a hyphen before it.
https://sites.google.com/site/gwebsearcheducation/advanced-operators
In other words, YOU removed your name from Google search, which makes you full of shit, at least on that point. Although it does not make you full of shit regarding the Illuminati. I don't think Illuminati theories or God are illogical, and I actually agree with you that some people believe anything touted as "scientific" simply because they don't want to think for themselves, so they let "science" think for them instead. I do think, though, that the article you posted earlier had at the least, 3 contradictions in it. Just to verify though -- the "40 outrageous facts" you posted earlier, are there any points you disagree with or don't think are true?

Edit: Ah, you edited your post. After you ask me to do a Google search for your name, making sure to "include the hyphens," you decide to edit out that part. I wonder why? Just so people know what I'm referring to, -Vega- asked me to do a Google search for his name, assuring me that I would get nothing because his name was removed for spreading the truth. Except any word with a hyphen before it is omitted from the search, so searching for -Vega- is equivalent to searching for nothing, which leads me to believe that you made that name specifically to BS people.

I beg to differ. People are "controlled" because they allow it. They either don't care until it affects them, or are too lazy or squeamish to do anything about it. There are too many gullible "sheep" in this country....when you vote for/allow the fox to watch the hen house, what can you expect than all hell breaking loose? ..... And I'm tired of all this crap people believe about organized religion. NOBODY is brainwashed to do/believe anything. That's why people come and leave a faith, and there are so many (what I call) pseudo adherents, they pick and choose what they want to believe but still (call themselves) consider themselves belonging to that group. That's like saying you believe in equal rights, but you don't think everyone should be allowed to vote...WTF?

It also works the other way. Someone could say that those who don't believe in a faith is brainwashed by whomever (atheists, government, media, etc.)...."A house divided against itself cannot stand." - Abraham Lincoln I think all this anti-political party/ anti-organized religion BS, is the crap the government stirs up to bring division among the people to keep them from accomplishing anything productive......like kicking (the government's) their asses out of office, getting them to do their job, or, at the very least, listen to the people (like they're supposed to) they govern. Don't fall for their scheme.

As i notice more and more americans care about what happens to famouse people lives. They have lose touch into what is happening around them, each day the government is taking more control of the citizens. I mean why should the government be able to pass laws we the people dont agree on sounds more like a dictatorship telling us what we can do and what we cant do. the system is to corrupted and there is a reason why the founding fathers gave the government minimal power over the people. I really think people need to stand up against the government take the power back that always belonged to them. 1 thing i hate is how you they flood the jails over people having weed JUST weed. we pay with our taxes each time they put someone who was stoped and had weed really stupid thing to do. the war on drugs i laugh at that its a huge waste of tax payer money that can really be used for something els, something meaningful. what do you think about this situation.






It's doing a better Job than Syria.

I have no problem with 'Faith'

Religion, however, all to often is the Abuse of Faith into a tool to oppress others.
