WEB Notes: Yet, we allow our government to poke and prod us, to invasively check our children at the airport and violate our rights and for what reason? Terrorism is a scam, it is a word that has been used to terrify the American people into giving up their rights. Yes, terrorism exists. But it is not behind every bush waiting to blow you up.

Since 1995, terrorists of varied stripe have killed 3,181 people in the U.S. — nearly 3,000 of them in the September 11 attacks, which sparked the nation’s unending war, alone.

That’s a startling figure, indeed — particularly in a country known for Orwellian surveillance and tracking of visitors and citizens, alike — but terror’s death toll cannot be examined separately from known killers more easily stopped.

In 2014, the span of a single year, an astounding 29,467 Americans died by overdose of opioid-related drugs, including prescriptions — and the following year saw more than 15,000 lose their lives to overdose on opioid medications legally prescribed by medical personnel.
