A HUGE part of the problem is the mental state of our country. People are soft, and coddled from an early age and, if they ever have any kind of behavioral or socialization problem, they are slapped on some sort of chemical instead of trying to identify the root cause.
Hell, most of the root cause of true genetic chemical imbalances can also probably be linked to the preservatives and other chemicals we are constantly exposed to on a daily basis.
But no. Let's fug up the environment. Let's slap your kids on "behavioral modification" drugs. Let's let the TV, pop culture, and video games be our baby sitters. Consume, consume, consume.
Then, when something bad happens, let's look for a scapegoat other than our own sh!tty human existence and blame things that we can tax, regulate, control, and make even more money for our empire on.
Fϋck responsibility for anything. Let's disregard the obvious bigger problem to serve our personal agendas.
I would like to think your views might indicate a general shift in attitudes by many Americans towards the inherent problems with government supported "Big Pharma" and the doctors that needlessly push over priced pharmaceuticals on our families. I would also like to think the NRA might now oppose government supported Industrialized Farming practices that have led to antidepressants being administered to chickens and 80% of all antibiotics used in this country being indiscriminately fed to livestock. Practices that are creating health issues for all Americans. However, I pessimistically suspect none of this will happen. Instead, the NRA will continue to do what it has done for years, call for less regulation, not more, and lobby lawmakers to put profits first, at the expense of Americans' health and well being. Just like the lobbying efforts by Big Pharma and Industrialized Farming do.
