Who Decided That It Would Be A Good Idea...

Michael Snyder

Do you have faith in the people running this nation? When answering that question, most people would bash either the Democrats or the Republicans, but my question goes much deeper than that. Power is constantly shifting back and forth between the two major political parties, and it seems like things don’t really change no matter who is in power. What I am asking is if you have faith in the entire system. Do you have faith in the U.S. government, the Federal Reserve, the state governments, the local governments, our public schools and our financial system? Do you believe that the people that are running things in this country are doing a good job? When you look at the results, it is hard to argue that those in power are making good decisions. In fact, this country is caught in such a downward spiral that it would be easy to argue that most of our politicians should immediately resign in disgrace. Our leaders just keep coming up with one bad idea after another. Sometimes it almost seems as though it would be better for our leaders to do absolutely nothing at all because every time they try to do something they only make things worse.

Posted below are a few dozens questions that reveal the stupidity of the people running this nation. The truth is that the list below could be much, much longer. If the founders of this nation could see us now they would be absolutely disgusted with us.

As you read the following list of questions, try to think about what the answers might be….

Who decided that it would be a good idea persecute farmers for selling raw milk? The following is how Natural News described the hell that 65-year-old farmer James Stewart was put through recently….

65-year-old senior citizen James Stewart, a raw milk farmer with no criminal history, was nearly tortured to death in the LA County jail this past week. He survived a “week of torturous Hell” at the hands of LA County jail keepers who subjected him to starvation, sleep deprivation, hypothermia, loss of blood circulation to extremities, verbal intimidation, involuntary medical testing and even subjected him to over 30 hours of raw biological sewage filth containing dangerous pathogens.

Who decided that it would be a good idea for the U.S. government to spend so much money? If the U.S. government taxed corporate profits at 100% and taxed all income above $250,000 at a 100% tax rate it would still not even come close to covering all of the government spending that is going on.

Who decided that it would be a good idea for TSA agents to strip-search elderly women and grope their private parts in the name of airport security? Does seeing and feeling the private parts of elderly women actually make us all safer?
