the real drug

The real drug is now and always has been democracy. The powers that be know that, no matter how well educated the average American is, they continue to make 98% of all of their decisions on the emotional level and if their assertion that drugs are the problem were true anyone in this country would be able to name dozens of drug users or dealers who were responsible for killing tens of thousands of people. That is simply not the case. The worst acts of genocide have all been committed by those under the influence of any one of the pseudo-religions in existance. In other words, the same people who are presently ranting and raving about "morality" and trying to label anyone who does not conform to their definition of unbridled capitalism as communist. Thanks to the fact that the average person is too busy trying to keep a roof over their head and food on the table, they don't have the time to read and figure out the truth.
If Democracy is such a wonderful thing, why don't we try it somewhere?

The 'Duomockery of Democracy'!

God + Gov't = Intellectual Dishonesty & Mental Masturbation

The 2 man-made social narcotics known as god & gov't are the most dangerous, toxic, and infectious diseases known to freethinkers everywhere!

With god ejaculating into the right earhole & gov't ejaculating into the left earhole... is their any wonder they are cognitively impaired & clueless!

Just say no... to the schism gism that infects their minds!

Daring to Disagree,

P.S. The demonrats & resurrectsicans have replaced democracy with 'duomockery... of democracy'!

P.P.S. 'Truth is treason in the kingdom of lies' - Ron Paul (For President '08)
