So I saw this on Facebook from a friend's status and I had never really thought about this before. SO here it goes... Do you think the government is keeping weed illegal, not allowing gay marriage and other issues like this to keep the publics attention away from how really deep our country is falling into shit? Like these are pretty small unimportant issues compared to the amount of debt we have and how China and India are taking over the world. If you think about it these little personal issues (I don't mean to belittle them because I do find them important) are just sort of something to keep us busy from what the governments are really doing. If you check the news and go deep enough you'll find out that our government is spending billions of dollars turning this country into a police state. They are monitoring everything we do and are planning on having drones over the US watching us. Local police departments are getting these armored tanks and futuristic weapons but for what reasons?? Why do you think both major candidates are keeping these small issues in play? They're doing it to keep us occupied and away from the truth and the big issues! Just to clarify I didn't copy this from Facebook these are my own words. My friend just had a sentence or two that gave me these thoughts.
