That Shining Penitentiary on the Hill

The US has 5% of the worlds population, and 25% of the worlds prisoners.

We imprison a greater proportion of our population than the despots of the world.

Are our streets safer? Nope.

Is crime less??? Nope. (and that's not considering the high dollar value of the Wall Street variety).

Lower taxes? Only if you're rich.

I guess as Americans, we just need someone to hate.
