Conspiracy Theories and me...

I was searching for an article on the internet today and came across a link with the authors name in it. So I went to the website to take a look and it was a vicious verbal assault upon the author I was searching for. It reminded me of a similar verbal attack I had gotten at work one day when I was talking about the collapse of the twin towers on 911.

I was called all kinds of names to include, gullible, naive, conspiracy nut, lunatic, unpatriotic, and a few others that are unfit to print. All because I was offering an opinion that differed from a person who happened to be listening.

Whenever I am presented with evidence to something I try, to the best of my ability, to research it and find both sides of the argument. I then weigh the evidence and make my own decision. I may be wrong sometimes, but at least I have taken the time to examine both sides of a story with an open mind.

I do believe that there is much going on in this country that is cause for great concern. Our republic is in dire peril and the American people are oblivious to most of what is going on. They prefer to trust the media, particularly the Un-fair and Un-balanced Fox News. It is my sincere opinion that our news agencies are all bought and paid for and present us with only the news that those in control allow them to. One exception is Lou Dobbs, and even he does not cover all the areas in which I have concerns. Still, I find it hard to believe that he has not been censored in one way or another.

I truly believe that our government no longer runs things in this country, at least they don’t make the big decisions any more. There are two quotes by Woodrow Wilson to which I fervently believe in.

“Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men's views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.”

“[A]nd we have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated, governments in the civilized world—no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and the duress of small groups of dominant men.”

There are many theories and ideas about who is controlling things in this country. The gamut ranges from the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bildebergers, the Tri Lateral Commission, the Global Bankers, the World Trade Organization, the World Bank, the Jesuits, the Skull and Bones, and the Masons. Who knows, other than those in positions of authority? It is painfully obvious that our elected officials no longer represent the common working family. Their votes are bought and paid for buy interests that have no concern for our well being, whether they be financial organizations or groups with plans for overall world dominion.

Our government no longer follows it’s constitutional mandate, and for that we can only blame ourselves for not understanding what constitutional authority our government has, and for voting for candidates who continue to govern outside their authority.

Finally, as I stated earlier I have been the subject of verbal attacks for my belief in quote, unquote, conspiracies. Yet I would like to leave you with two quotes from Thomas Jefferson.

“Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.”

“The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it be always kept alive. It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all”

I feel it is our sacred duty to keep a keen eye on our government and ensure that they are keeping within the limits placed upon them by our Constitution. We may be wrong, as Jefferson said, some of the time, but the consequences of not challenging them at all is far worse. As Patrick Henry said, “GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH"!

Lou Dobbs is cool. he's one of the few who are worth watching. He "gets" it when it comes to the American middle-class squeeze.
