9. Just a few thoughts to your question -
At the most basic level, yes, our government tortures people - the last 7 years under the Bush* regime provies daily torture for anyone in the world with decency, fairness, empathy, and a sense of what is right.

That was my first, flippant response.

Digging a bit deeper - it makes me ill...but a few things came to mind.

Empires fail. We are in the decline.
People tend to not learn very well from past experience. Especially stupid, stubborn people who have been filled with false pride. Introducing our so called president.
A lifetime failure will only continue to fail. Once again, yes, it is our pResident.
Republicans make terrible presidents because they pretend to have moral authority, pretend to have religion and wield it like a weapon of manipulation. We have the worst right now - someone who, if he did believe in a higher power, could never do what he does, say what he says. This goes for those he surrounds himself with.

We are seeing a truly evil bunch of people, corrupt and drunk with power, utterly devoid of intellect or decency, ruining the world.

And we are keeping our powder dry. Because we don't want to be unpopular.

And this only scratches the surface of my outrage.
