Reminders. . .

These Realities Still Exist - And We As A Nation Must Confront Them.
by The Old Hippie, Because Otherwise, It Will Be “Allowed” To Get Even Worse.

The Realities: A short list, including reference links, of what most of us know are the most “need of correction” realities our nation must confront.  Since most of these realities are of equal importance, there is no particular ordering to the listing.

{-The Way Many Picture Me-}
Only ~40% of voting age Americans actually voted in the last two national elections.

1 in 32 Americans in U.S. jails, on probation or parole.  More than any other nation in history.

America has the 53rd freest press in the world - 52 other nations have a freer press than us.

US is the largest single emitter of carbon dioxide from the burning of fossil fuels, according to the C.I.A.'s “World Factbook.”

Torture was “allowed” to become official American policy.

Habeas Corpus - Gone - Even for an American citizen, via the Military Commissions Act.

The E-Voting Situation still must be fixed.

Trillions upon trillions of American taxpayer's dollars - Gone - The largest successful, (and “allowed,”) theft in the history of humankind.

The complete, (and insane,) “allowed” corruption of the sciences, by politicization for corporate profits, and opportunistic theocratic ideology.

We are still illegally occupying Iraq - Bring the troops home now.

46 million Americans don't have health insurance, another 50 million Americans are under-insured, and the cost of healthcare has gone out of the reach of a large number of Americans, and so there's only one real solution, and that is to make healthcare not-for-profit.  I mean healthcare should be established as a basic right in a democratic society.  Every industrialized democracy has healthcare for its people- Except America.

Note:  How many of you ~31%, that still, corruptly or insanely, support this criminally destructive, now well proven lying administration, realize that, (46 million + 50 million,) 96 million Americans, approximately 1/3 of our nation, have no real healthcare protection?  And How many of you 31% are included within that ~1/3 of America?
