Great quote.

I can't belive how well this applies to the U.S.

I may be common people but sure as hell don't adhere to any religon or see it as any kind of truth. :) Maybe I am not so common!

FAITH can be a good thing, but religion (faith put into an artificial system - what my uncle calls "det store verdenssystemet") has seldom prooved good.

Yeah, nothing good comes of organized religion.
