Re: Just when you thought...

I freely admit I don't have the time to pick through every paragraph so I pick an easy one I that takes me 2 minutes. This is not my full-time job sorry. You are attempting to turn this into a war of attrition.

Rather than go down that road why not go back to the original point of the article. You express that Facebook should not be blocking access to 'foreign viewpoints'. Reportedly one of the adverts in question said:

"Up to 5.8 million illegals may have voted in the 2008 election. Share if you think this is wrong."

This is not a foreign viewpoint. It is a straight-up lie. You can't even discuss the original point of the article without putting a ridiculous spin on it.

I'm not trying to prove that the US is perfect. I don't believe it is.

Please try reading the two books I recommended earlier. It is possible that you could learn too.
