Issue Areas/Comments
There is a constant barage of TV, magazine and radio ads promoting the drugging of America. There is a "solution" to every "chemical imbalance" known to man. I have stopped watching TV, reading magazines and change the radio stations when I hear another drug ad. That leaves me with the choice of no form of media besides a good book. If the government's intention is to have a robotic society, addicted to drugs, then I would tend to think they are working in conjunction with the drug companies (and the psychs themselves) to create such an environment. I am sure there are medical drugs that serve a purpose, but the proliferation of "legal" drugs in our society is a phenomena that will end up backfiring on us as a whole, i.e., more senseless killings, rampage shootings, children killing children. If that doesn't tell you, the FDA, that we have a problem on our hands, the integrity and morals of the FDA should come under scrutiny. The sad part is, who would do the scrutinizing? Psychs? You could only hope that would never happen to you or your families.
