It is my belief that both parties are merely puppets for the same puppeteer(s). So no matter who you vote for, no matter who gets "voted in", their
agenda will be carried out. George Carlin had it right. We have no choice, only the illusion of choice. You can't speak this sort of thing here
without being ignored by 1/2 of the ATS population. My estimation of that is simple: shills. Pass around the Kool-Aid, nom, nom, nom. Keep feeding the
propaganda machine. I don't care anymore. Once your eyes are opened, they cannot be shut again. But if you want to continue believing in their fairy
tale, that is your right as a human being, really.
That said, all the rest of their B.S. is divide and conquer. You're right, CIA not only pumps drugs into those neighborhoods now. Go way, way back to
when they were fresh towns, and had a liquor store on every street corner. They did the exact same thing in the small town I grew up in, which is now
a very poor and beat down place (not that it was any different, as far as I remember). But it used to be booming, before the first great depression,
as my grandfather tells it. Now it is merely a dried up, impoverished shadow of what it used to be, with several liquor stores, despite the fact that
no one can even afford to feed themselves. It is a town filled with drunks and pill-heads, who sell black market prescription drugs like oxycontin.
Practically everyone I went to school with there as a small child is now dead. If they're not dead, they're in jail. If they're not in jail,
they're on welfare, have several girlfriends and about a dozen children. Including my brother, in fact. His life is a complete disaster.
Guess what? We're all white, mostly. There's about 5 black people in the entire town. Very good people, actually. One of them was my 3rd grade
teacher. Another was my best friend, growing up. But we're all just people, regardless of skin color, and we're all in the same damned boat. No one
in power cares about us. They never have, and they never will. Jay Rockefeller has been a representative of this state in one way or another since I
can remember. I actually remember signs with his name on them posted around my school, as a child. One of the richest families in this country. And
yet, that town is, more or less, a backwater, third world hellhole.
