A step in the right direction, but how about we worry about capitalism
in our own country first? Oh, and freedom, and national debt, and taxes,
and liberty, and photography , and terr^H^H^H^Hparanoia. We have WAY

In airplanes they tell you to put your oxygen mask on first, then help
your neighbor. We're not going to be any good to anyone if we fall flat
on our faces while trying to be misguided saviour to the rest of the
Also, this saviour complex only acurately describes the feeble sheep in
this country. The ones actually making the policies are in it for
