The federal government markets prison labor to businesses as the “best-kept secret”

The US used to love personal responsibility, freedom, morality, peace, and balanced budgets.
Americans are now embracing welfare, tyranny, immorality, war, and debt.
Some Americans are not adjusting well to the changes and the hypocrisy.
You just need to go outside to see the insanity. Have you noticed the panhandlers, the illegal immigrants, the cashier high on drugs, a black man using his fingers while pretending to shoot you, the homosexual in the gym shower leering at you, the white man spitting, the fat girl wearing pajamas at the supermarket, and the old lady driving slow on purpose in the parking lot talking to herself?
People living in the US would think this was normal, but Americans don’t realize how far the USA has fallen until they travel abroad.
Being a fat, tattooed single mother in Vietnam would be shameful.
How can Americans sleep at night while the US collapses or look in the mirror now without feeling disgusted?

While I agree with much of what you're saying. It might help you and others more if you slightly adjusted your anger into a sense of empathetic pity.
These folks don't know what is wrong with the world. They don't blame the system. They blame themselves. That's why Trump was elected.
I'm guessing you're like me and want to do something about the system. Ok if my favorite Lincoln quotes is, "Do we not destroy our enemies when we make them out friends?".
Hate is like drinking poison and hoping the other person dies. Less vitriol. More compassion for potential allies. 👍
By the way. I looked up some of your music videos. Pretty good.. ;-)
