On Friday I mentioned that we, here in the United States, have growing epidemics of obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.
We, here in the United States, who are supposed to be leaders of the free world.
We, who have more wealth, resources, and opportunity than so many other countries, yet we cannot keep our children healthy, and we eat ourselves into sickness and debt.
We are leaders of the free world in many ways.
But we have a lot of growing up to do in others.
We once fought to free our country from the grips of external rule.
We have to fight that fight again.
The external rulers over us today are not as easy to see. They don’t walk the streets with bayonets.
They rule with power and money. Profits fuel their war machine.
They funny thing is that you, yes, you, can take them down today, simply by not buying what they’re selling.
