The government has made their choice abundantly clear. They intend to retain power over the American people, regardless of the cost. We are all slaves- taxpayers, tax collectors, police, military, people down on their luck, the middle class… They’re perfectly happy to use 20 dead slave children- and hundreds of thousands more in the Middle East- to maintain that power, and won’t let any “crisis go to waste,” to gain more power. Their viewpoint- to be blunt- is that we are ALL expendable. You need to understand that fact.
