4. Drugs- Millions of Americans turn to drugs to fill the void of true purpose in their lives. Instead of dealing with a past a hurt or seeking a higher purpose in their lives by helping others and using their natural talents to make a better world, people turn to drugs. The worst kind of drugs are the ones that people believe are making them better. The powerful psychotropic drugs like Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRI) or more commonly known as anti-depressants. These drugs are extremely powerful and can cause psychotic breaks that lead to violence. Go to ssristories.com... to see the list of nearly 4,300 cases of crime related to these drugs. These stories include everything from the Virginia Tech shooting to the mom that drowned her 5 kids in the bathtub. I would say that these drugs are much more dangerous than guns, because they cause the people to break from reality and cause the violence. I don’t have time to go into the mass medication of America and the real reason why Marijuana is illegal, but I do want to warn everyone of one thing. Nearly 10% of the country or 27 million Americans are on these drugs. Knowing that there is only a one month supply in the system and the kind of psychotic breaks that will happen if people come off these drugs too fast, this is definitely not a good thing. When the dollar collapses, we not only have to worry about the 7 to 10 day supply of food and fuel in the system, we really need to worry about the 1 in 10 Americans who are not going to be medicated while their world paradigm collapses. I can see it now, humanitarian airlifts dropping Zoloft and Lexapro from the sky…

people keep saying things like "only horrible criminals are involved in these riots". which I would not agree with, yes there Is looting and stealing but that will occur In ANY mass unrest situation. what exactly do you expect these poor, jobless, people to do, continue to vote(like that's helped, EVER). people have been organizing peaceful protests for years to no avail. how much longer to people wait before revolting, how many police beatings can we take? how many civil liberties can we loose? how much Is it ok for prices to rise before the people can revolt. I also keep seeing people say that If we riot they will use that as an excuse to crack down ant take rights away. Well guess what THEY ARE TAKING OUR RIGHTS AWAY! they don't need a reason! they just need to pass a goddam bill. If the people revolted all the laws and police and military In the world wouldn't stop them.

you make It sound as if that Is the ONLY thing to happen during a mass riot/revolt, there are people doing those things now with no riot, there are police doing this everyday.

It wouldn't be riots in the US, like in England.
It would be a war, because both sides are armed.
If what happened in England this week starts in the US and spreads, it would be civil war.
And I don't know what the Yanks are waiting for, as the American people would win. And win easily.
