United States' penal system is being privatized. You have a lot of useless laws, and the rich profit from putting you in jail. As I see it, the prison populations are gonna get increasingly bigger.
The only industrialized, developed country in the world, with a privatized "public" health system. "Good health insurance is reserved for republican congressmen and the rich".
Wake up people. Your Legal system was made for vengeance not for rehabilitation. Your health system is made up for profit, not to improve public's health. CHANGE THAT!
