16. America is a police state.
These swat teams (100x a day!) barge into peoples homes, use deadly force with no provocation, and treat ordinary citizens like shit that is stuck to their boot. What is really happening here? It is just training (against the underclass) so that if Americans ever grow a spine and tell the government "no more, we deserve our freedoms and property just as much as the wealthy", the elites will already have a domestic, viscous enforcement tool. Just change the name from the war on drugs, to the war on terra (domestic non-violent citizens who demand parity). These assholes are trained to obey and destroy just as if they were empire building for the corptocracy. They'll kill the intellectuals, laugh and go have some beers, telling stories about their great bravery. They were "just following orders" will be their mantra should they ever be prosecuted for their atrocities. We desperately need movements like Dr. King led, and yes even the black panthers. They had daycare centers, fed the hungry and even though they fought violence with violence, they helped us win civil rights and worried the elites enough, that they declared a "war on poverty." That war doesn't need neanderthals with weapons killing you and/or your pets. Did they ever claim "mission accomplished" on that one?
