I just want to make a few points that will probably make me sound like an asshole, but here it goes.

First of all, of the $8.3 Million that Invisible Children spent in 2011, only about $2.8 Million (roughly 31%) actually made it to Uganda, and that amount was likely further whittled down by the government, meaning the actual children got much much less. In contrast, Invisible Children spent about $2.8 Million just on the filming and producing the Kony movie (and movies like it). Essentially, they spent more charity money making a movie about their charity than they actually gave to the children.

Now, the goal of this video isn't necessarily to bring in money to go directly to the children, but to help indirectly by pressuring the US government to get involved. And that's great... except for one thing. I gather that most of you are Ron Paul supporters, yes? And what has been his rallying cry throughout his entire campaign? "No policing the world."

Think about what IC wants and decide if that is what you want. They want us to basically use our military to fix Africa. I think everyone can agree that what Kony has done is absolutely horrific and it should be stopped, but do you really want us to get militarily involved in Africa?

I'm not saying you shouldn't support Kony 2012, but I am saying that if you choose to do so, you should do some additional research and figure out what exactly it is that you're supporting, because all of the information needed to determine that is not going to be found in this video.

, "but to raise support for his arrest and set a precedent for international justice."

AHAHAHHA No. Remember Iraq? Remember Libya? Can you see Afghanistan? PEOPLE HATE "INTERNATIONAL JUSTICE".

This kind of **** , "boy soldiers" has been going on for decades. This is nothing new. There's little to nothing we can do about it, either. Throwing money at it won't magically cure everything, believe it or not. I feel for those kids, but if we send soldiers there, the kids will be forced to shoot at our soldiers, and our soldiers WILL SHOOT THEM, AND THEN WE'LL GET IN TROUBLE FOR SHOOTING KIDS.

I do not doubt for a second that those involved in KONY 2012 have great intentions, nor do I doubt that Joseph Kony is a very evil man, but research 'Invisible Children'. It's not as great as it sounds. I ******* WISH that it was, but they support the Ugandan Army who rape and use child soldiers as well. Have your own opinion, support this if you feel it's right because in many ways it is, but do your own research-don't just believe what the you're shown.
