The Truth About The war in Afghanistan and BP

Ever since the war in Afghanistan, the government has kept alive a culture of fear, telling us that we have to give up our freedoms to make sure it never happens again. You know why? They, and companies like BP, are profiting off that fear.

Did you know that BP's employees don't even pay an income tax?

Invested parties have done a lot to make sure this stays under wraps.

BP clearly has a secret deal with Youtube-- all videos highlighting the abuses it committed while in Kenya are taken down without explanation.

Perhaps tellingly, several diplomats were barred from the country for agreeing with these claims.

For years, the government has been using industrial accidents and the war in Afghanistan as excuses for increasing restrictions on the use of freon. But we all know that's just an excuse. Ordinary people should be allowed to keep as much freon as they want for personal use.

Many of us have noticed this, but most people keep their mouths shut and just move on.

Now that you know the truth, save your family and friends. Let them know the truth.
