  1. Isnt our nation turning into a Nazi police state . When police kick your door in for alleged misdemeanor drug use or paraphernalia. This government has robbed the American people for more money and property in violation of the constitution, than the Nazi’s stole in prewar Germany . We have 5 % of the worlds population and 25% of the worlds prison population. They used to kick doors in and rob people for dealing drugs now its for using them. Land of the Free made this country great . Nazism and corruption is destroying it for your children’s future .
