Your first paragraph, right on from a cursory view. But I believe, and I bet you do but correct me if my bet is wrong, there are people who control our country. When it comes down to us, the freedom people, and those people not us, our difference is learning. We learn because we think. I have no problem saying it, they who aren't us are fools. They got fooled in part because, well, they're dumb. They're dumb until they think. I know how that sounds, but, hey, if the shoe fits.
