FREEDOM: Police Preemptively Raid Apartment & Arrest Activists Ahead of NATO Summit

USA likes to espouse itself as being the freest country in the world, defender of life and liberty.

Yet people are pre-emptively arrested for wanting to exercise their first amendment rights, 25% of all prisoners on planet earth are in our jail system, we have the highest imprisonment rate, and have killed tons of civilians in our various oil wars (Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya).

America’s dead. Perhaps a better use of everyone’s energy is to figure out how to get the fuck out of America, because our “freedom” is mostly based on economics, not principles of actual liberty.

Fuck Chicago Police (for the 10,000th time).

But fuck america for allowing this to happen, and fuck americans for voting in leaders like Bush and Obama who only decrease total freedom, and for having no backbone to fight this bullshit.

And once again, the truth comes out: Like every nation to ever invade Afghanistan in the past 150 years, we will leave without significantly changing anything.

Obama’s not stupid, had to have known this, sent in more troops than Bush ever had, and did so after promising to end our unnecessary Bush-era wars. But instead we had more troop deaths under Obama, and lost tons of tax money fighting a fight that made no real difference. Bin Laden wasn’t even found there!
