Our Government is Lying to Us/Question Authority!

So many issues and so many crimes against humanity, where has our nation gone, what have we turned into, a country that resembles everything we have learned to despise since childhood? We were taught that Adolf Hitler was the devil incarnate, that freedom and our civil liberties were not to be taken for granted…ever. Yet somehow we find ourselves in a conundrum that nobody could envision when we were young. What happened, who did this? Why are we throwing nuclear waste around the Middle-East, why won’t we let Sibel Edmonds speak? Who was responsible for 9/11? Why, when the majority of hijackers originated from Saudi Arabia are we fighting in Iraq? Who’s fixing the votes everywhere?


Who is responsible? Well let me say this, we all are to some degree, but we shouldn’t take the blame. If you want to blame someone or something blame human greed in the form of the military industrial complex. We are not to blame for our government taken from us by those entrenched in Washington that never must face the voters. The people that have been pulling the strings for decades in offices we never hear about. The people that procure military equipment and give advice on foreign affairs, the people that run black ops that never see the light of day; these are some of the people that have placed us into the place we now find ourselves in.


So what do we do about it? We already are doing something about it. There is an undercurrent in this country. Can you feel it? People are starting to question authority again. Maybe in some way this is the best thing that could have happened to this country. The death and destruction caused by this malevolent administration can never be condoned no matter if anything good comes out of it. One thing that is arising is the indefatigable spirit of those in this nation that have learned to think for themselves. If you will notice, almost everything that comes out of the government has been contested by people that want the truth. The recent encounter in the Straits of Hormuz was shown to be an American propaganda piece. The Vice President has learned to shut his mouth because the American people know what he wants. They don’t want a war with Iran…period. The impeachment papers and the subpoenas’ for Harriet Meirs and John Bolton are being pushed into an extraordinary convening of the Judiciary Committee. The rule of law is not just for the citizenry, it’s for everyone, even those in power.


We know our voting processes in this country are fixed. The Democrats have, in their great wisdom, condoned this by not daring to speak out against the secret ballot counting and the use of the Diebold machines that can be hacked by anyone with an elementary knowledge of computer programming. This knowledge isn’t just on progressive websites, it’s on the streets. People are demanding that their vote be counted, otherwise, how can our civil liberties be protected? The two-party system is under scrutiny, not by just the left, but also from the right. Americans are finally starting to realize that professional politicians are not good for this country. They have their own self interests at heart. The citizens they represent come after their corporate backers, their own self interests, party loyalty. Finally there is the constituent. How does it feel to be fourth rate?


Let Sibel Edmonds speak. She knows the truth and I for one fear for her life. She has the will and the courage to speak out, we must let her. Since when are facts and truth not for public consumption? How can we participate in this supposed “democracy” if we don’t know the truth? What is our government hiding? If anyone believes that we must stand up for our right to know, we must stand up for her testimony to be made public. Too much has passed under the bridge in too short a time. The American people are still in shock and dismay over all that has transpired in the years since 9/11 defined our life. We need to recover and stop the abuses and the distortions of our government. We are a state–sponsor of terrorism, killing more than any other nation in modern history. Have we killed our own citizen’s? At least 25 military officers have stood up and said that they don’t believe the official version of the events of 9/11. How our own military people can put their future in harm’s way and we as citizens do nothing?


Voting fraud, tampering with the Constitution, 9/11, the Global War on Terrorism, Gitmo, Renditions, and ignored subpoenas and now primary tampering and Sibel Edmonds, when is enough, enough? Make your voice heard, talk to others and tell them what you know. It’s your responsibility. The way that things are going in this so-called election, nothing is going to change. We need to coalesce behind someone that will tell us the truth. Who is this someone? People emerge when called upon, there will be someone that will rise against this insane machine.


That’s the way I see it.
