I posted this on my facebook page. If you see my point and believe it could change the attitude of every person that sees this, please copy and share! My picture to the left of this post is Ron Paul 2012. Let everyone know what morons and fools the American's are and let's set the record straight!
_______________________________________________________________________________________

Nice post but might I suggest you tone down the language. Often people become instantly defensive when someone screams "morons" etc. and simply disregard the message.

I don't believe the average person stupid but more likely obstinate and uninformed. Maybe a better strategy is to provide a "tease" of irrefutably information followed by links to allow for individual discovery. If we point people to the proper literature and they obtain knowledge on their own they are more likely, in my opinion, to come to logical conclusions. I believe people tend to accept and promote conclusions/ideas/positions they arrive at on their own much more readily and passionately than those that others "push". How they arrive at those conclusions is problematic. If as I suspect most just regurgitate the talking points of their favored party or news station all our screaming won't move them, but if we can get them to investigate, to read about monetary policy, the fed, the petro-dollar, the reserve currency, the military industrial complex etc. I believe they will uncover that they have been wrong and mislead. If you can recall how you felt when you first started to learn and uncover the truths that now seem so obvious that might help in understanding my above reasoning. My personal discovery led to an insatiable thirst for greater knowledge which has yet to diminish and a renewed hope that there are still a few politicians and citizens that have integrity and believe in liberty.

Thoughts?

Neither should we sacrifice Liberty for Safety nor Integrity for Concessions. True Liberty can not exist in the absence of integrity. Liberty gained through compromise is but a temporary illusion.

I have never feared a terrorist attack . . . ever--

I do fear my government. Have for many years. :/

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

8 times more likely

to be killed by a cop than a terrorist.
