Statistics can be a wonderful things
when they are used properly
but when they are used improperly

They are demons on the loose.

They tear and ravage
the fabric of our society
destroying homes and lives
with careless abandon.

Their misuse creates horrible situations
that turn a society of equals
into a divided nation
of those in power
and those who become


Because they are poor
the “wrong” race
believe the “wrong” things
are considered the “lesser” sex
use the “wrong” history
l ove the “wrong” people
are mentally ill
are physically ill
are abused
are addicted
are old
are children…

Don’t think like those in power.

They can be imprisoned
lose basic human rights
even those that our country
supports in the United Nations
are part of international law
are part of many religious
and spiritual ethics.

And it doesn’t just happen
in third world countries
some other place in the world
non-Christian nations
places where there is no
or bad education.

It also happens here
in America
where equality is a basic tenet
prejudice is banned by law
and we take so much pride
in being

The best country in the world

If you don’t believe this
check some yourself
see the truth that can lie in them
and the way they have been distorted

To lie to you

I suggest those on
the War on Drugs
those that are published
by our own country
by respected authorities.

And then consider how political ploys
have used statistics
of their own
to make you think
that you have helped protect
our country
our law-abiding citizens
your community
your loved ones
when in truth,
it has endangered them all
and is costing more than ever before
in money
and lives

in children
in families
in communities
in churches
in victims of catastrophes
in the elderly
in veterans
in voters.

Don’t let the drug lords continue to get rich
while their victims lose


Fight back.
