Bernie Sanders says it is better to be rich and guilty, than to be poor and innocent in this country! What has our country come to?

My grandparents were immigrants, and I am part of the second generation in this country and working on the fifth. So, I have been around awhile. I have many unanswered questions. Starting with FDR and the crooked Federal Reserve, from what my parents told me. I sure did not learn it in school. They had to give up all their gold to.

I question the JFK assassination; I believe the American people were lied to. LBJ and the Tonkin Bay incident. I have heard on tape how he wanted that ship to go down. He even called off the wings after the ship requested help.

Ronald Reagan, Russia, taxes, and drug laws putting many in prison who never harmed anyone. Did you know America has the most people in prison in the world! Just look at how prohibition worked out.

Bush #2 and 9/11 and all the coverups, Desert Storm and the Patriot Act. OMG Obama giving China the materials to mint $100 bills, including plates. The murder of Muammar Khadafy in Libya. Bill Clinton getting rid of the Glass-Steagall Act. Why is our health care considered a gross domestic product? Really, making money off of sick people?

Our Earth is struggling. We are losing thousands of species daily, global warming, ecosystems are collapsing, clean safe water is bare. This is the real world, all human-caused. Humans caused the demise of the dodo bird, carrier pigeon, bison, beavers, etc. We all need to work with nature, not against it, to improve her ability to heal. Shame on us for letting this happen!

Maybe if our federal government told us the truth with full disclosures about our country and what is really happening. Instead, we are treated like morons!

I’m tired of war and dirty money made from it. Read, “War is a Racket” by Smedley D. Butler. This book should be a required read in our schools. We are run by corporations who vote in their own persons. No votes from We the People.

Our Freedom of Information Act is ignored or abused by corporations. Our federal agencies are run by alphabet soup agencies. Our Bill of Rights are ignored even in the courts. Why are we kept in the dark?

I am a lawful person and nondependent on our government. I want the 19 essential services guaranteed by government to us. We the people are waking up to all the fraud and now we are fighting to get our country on the right path.

That was not very uplifting. Try spending more time in the great outdoors. It will calm you down a bit!
