A few years ago I found the following text on a forum. It was years old then already, but today it’s still true and relevant. What is your opinion?

An 18 Year Old American Teen Has Figured It Out…
From Corey Cananza
Feel free to spread the following rant everywhere, it makes for a good argument against some idiotic Bush supporter….

In a country where the poor and old cannot afford health care, in a country where the economy is falling apart, in a country where 44 million people live on less than $12,000 dollars a year, in a nation where 5 million people are homeless, in a country where the entire media system is owned by only six media mega conglomerates, in a nation with the highest crime rate, in a country with the world’s largest prison population, in a society where 60% of marriages end in divorce, in a country where 25% of kids under 12 live in poverty, in a country that cut 25 billion dollars out of veterans benefits to help pay for a new war, in a country where the gulf between the rich and poor is growing everyday, in a nation that supports dictatorships in Saudi, Egypt, and Turkey, in a country where the government is full of corruption, in a country with the world’s highest teen suicide and stress rates, and you’re telling me our biggest problems are TERRORISM and DRUGS?
