The US federal government killed ~700,000 American citizens during the 1860s to ensure a handful of states paid their federal taxes and obeyed federal regulations.
The US federal government killed ~117,000 American citizens during the 1910s to fight a completely unnecessary war that protected trade interests.
The US federal government killed ~418,000 American citizens in another European war to protect trade interests during the 1940s. The sovereignty of American soil was never at stake during all of WWII. The attack by Japan was intentionally provoked AND we knew it was coming ahead of time.
The US federal government killed ~50,000 American citizens during the 1950s in yet another totally unnecessary war.
The US federal government killed ~60,000 American citizens during the 1960s in yet another totally unnecessary war that did nothing to protect the sovereignty of American soil.
Of course, the criminal US federal government is still busy needlessly killing thousands of American citizens today, as well as spending the nation into bankruptcy to protect us from a CIA created boogie-man.
Obviously we should have the same institution that makes it its business to kill endless numbers of American citizens run our healthcare system, our energy systems, our automotive manufacturing systems, tell us how much water per-flush our toilets should use, tell us what type of car we can buy, tell us what type of milk we can drink, etc.. etc.. etc.. etc..
In fact we should just raise taxes to 100% and all work for free until we are 65, at which point we should be shot because we have outlived our usefulness to the State and we shouldn’t be a burden.
