bigd- I understand your point now but I really don’t agree with it. One could easily argue that officials in high positions don’t know all the facts if one was to site all the examples were officials literally make our soldiers better targets. Politians will also make choices on what the media tries to pass off as true. I do think you made a great secondary point though. Writing your congress man. Voting is not doing enough. You need to write a congress man to get your view represented. Unfortunately normal people don’t do this enough. It seems like only the most extreme and crazy left and right wing people do. That’s usually who these politians are appeasing when they institute the policies that are bring this country down the tubes.
