Sure, terrorists could easily replace druggies as the political scapegoats of the 21st century. But here is the problem with that. Terrorists are too few, and too smart to be captured. We need a massive (think 1-4%) of the population behind bars, to support our long-term fascism growth... and there simply aren't enough terrorists in the world to meet that quota.
Worse, even if there were that many, and the administration was competent enough to capture them alive, we kinda screwed the pooch on the whole deal. Now the proles are all hysterical and worked up, and they wounldn't even let us lock them up.
Druggies are perfect for this purpose, in ways that terrorists never could be. Druggies carry weapons from time to time, sure, but they like to shoot with those gangsta movie sideway grips.. they can't hit the broad side of a barn from the inside most days of the week. More importantly, they have real trouble resisiting or running. Ever try to see a doper run away from the police? It's hilarious... here is a guy that probably has less than 6 neurons firing correctly run away from 30 trained LEAs. Tripping, staggering, and about as fast as a slug on valium, the doper wouldn't be able to stand on one foot for 5 seconds, but somewhere deep down in that shriveled husk that once was a brain, he thinks he can outrun a helicopter on foot.
Now, compare that to the Tali-quaeda ninjas, that fire back RPGs from well defended positions. Someone might have to drop their doughnuts and fight back with both hands against the likes of that.
This is exactly why we should stay with our choice of making druggies the scapegoats for evil in america. No other group excites the proles quite as much during hate week.
Do not look directly into laser with remaining good eye.
