have a copy of the constitution hanging in your office? I'm telling you,
the government is corrupt. Wait ~30 years. See how many of our rights
are taken away. Unfortunately, most new generations of people (currently
children) do not care if our rights are taken away.

Fact: There is enough food in the world to feed EVERY HUMAN BEING IN THE
WORLD. I don't like seeing people starve, but there's nothing I can do
about it. Ask your wondrous government why they don't feed those people.
