    Drugs. Violence. Rape.

    Sex. Debt. Corruption. Death. Anguish. Agony. Injustice. Prejudice. "Land of the free and the home of the brave" is just an illusion branded into the heart of America so that it has something to cover up the f*cked up history it has. Europeans came to America and, knowing...
