America: Land of the drugged, home of the medically enslaved


In case you haven't noticed, a grand delusion has bewitched the United States, where constant pro-USA rhetoric and gooey sentiments about being fortunate enough to live in "the greatest country on Earth" have blinded many Americans from recognizing and acknowledging the reality staring them in the face: that society is crumbling at an unprecedented rate and that the country has been taken over by crooks and lunatics who are robbing the people blind and stealing their livelihoods with little resistance.

Widespread obesity, chronic illness, rampant government corruption, an increasingly oppressive police state -- these and many other characteristics of societal decay in America are all around us, and worsening by the day, and yet millions of people are blissfully living their mundane lives as if nothing is wrong. They apparently haven't been following any of the trends showing that America is now the fattest, sickest and arguably the most naive nation on the planet.

"The reality is that the United States is in a deep state of decline, and it is getting harder to deny that fact with each passing day," wrote Michael Snyder in a recent report about the subject on "Mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually and financially we are a train wreck."

America: the fattest, sickest nation on the planet

Citing recent Gallup-Healthways poll data, Snyder explains that, when it comes to maintaining a healthy weight, Americans are dead last in the developed world. Only one U.S. state, it turns out, Montana, currently has an obesity rate under 20 percent, while 11 states currently have an obesity rate exceeding 30 percent. Meanwhile, the national obesity average increased from 26.2 percent in 2012 to 27.1 percent in 2013.
