Question everything

By From page A5 | July 30, 2012

EDITOR: I will start by saying that I have been guilty of not following politics too closely over the years, But I found myself asking time and again, what happened to “by the people, for the people?”

It seemed politicians thumbed their arrogant noses at the people they represent, voting often for big government and the diminishing of the Constitution and the American peoples rights and freedoms.

Or as with Gov. Brown signing the Dream Act into effect giving illegal aliens the right to a free college education,  I wondered why we never voted on that. Where did it come from and who decided?

I began to dig deeper into things that I observed and found many alternative media outlets that cover topics and take stories deeper than mainsteam media ever does. They explored what is really going on. Some call these alternative media outlets “conspiracy theorists.” I now call the majority of what I have learned “truth.” Discernment is important no matter where news comes from and I still question what I hear, see or read from these sources as well.

But luckily for the criminal politicians, financial industry, big pharma and other global criminal corporations like Monsanto, the majority of Americans are in a deep sleep. Unwilling to risk the American Dream — if it still exists for you — it seems easier to call anyone who questions what is really going on as a conspiracy nut or a troublemaker.

I see letters to this newspaper from others who have delivered wisdom and truth to you, our fellow citizens, but these letters are either ignored or someone responds in a knee-jerk way, throwing insults.

People, I implore you to stop, think, get out of your comfort zone and begin to educate yourself about what is really going on in the world. Our federal, state and local politicians do not operate in the best interest of America or her citizens.

Even our local political scene has not been without greed and contempt. To make things worse, the mainstream media reports nothing without an agenda — often creating a race debate where there otherwise would not be or just going silent — as with Fukushima, pretending that nothing catastropic is still going on. Politicians are bought off by the criminal banking, pharma, chemical and global media complexes that I mentioned previously.

What they all ultimately care about is money, power, and diminishing the population by half. But hey, keep watching your reality shows, worrying about who will be kicked off American Idol next and continue to sleep. But my hope is you join those who are waking up, questioning why our foods are modified, why Obama signed the NDAA on Dec 31, 2011, and what that really means to us as citizens, why the criminal banking industry has not been stopped, why we as a country are no longer self-sufficient in any way, how a private company — the Federal Reserve — controls our economy and currency, the war on farming and our food source by Monsanto, FDA, and much more.

I would expect you to question everything I am writing as well. If you still decide to send a knee-jerk response, so be it, that is what free speech is about, thank goodness. But it is also just one of the many freedoms at risk of disappearing if more people don’t wake up now.
