Waking Up!

Today I received a text from my father asking what is the safest way to talk about the news. Not knowing exactly what he meant, I gave him a call.

He answered and said that he may be paranoid, but he wanted to know if text messages or phone calls were more likely to be monitored . I laughed and said that anytime you use your cell phone that you are being monitored. Then I hear my mom in the background mention that webcams on tv's and computers record you without your knowledge.

I then called out my dad because he used to call me crazy, a nut, a kook, or paranoid for saying that the gov't was snooping on our phone calls. He said that he couldn't believe that our gov't was that evil. Now he wants to hear all of the conspiracy stories I have tried to share with him earlier. It's like everything I have been telling them the past two years was now being processed.

I could tell they were scared. They said that it bothers them that no one cares. I reassured them and said the initial shock of being awake is the scariest. The info may get nastier, but the shock wears off.

We then started talking about Snowden, Wikileaks, Bradley Manning, and celebrities that were silenced by speaking out against the gov't.

I don't know what the MSM has up their sleeves for the Snowden saga, but they made a HUGE mistake! The people are beginning to realize that our government is full of constitution trampling tyrants.

It's like the good doc says, people cannot un-hear what you tell them.

Keep informing the people! Critical Mass is near!

"Critical Mass is Near"

I agree with this comment.

The Snowden case deserves its own damn channel, don't let this fade. And Glenn Greenwald IS SCHOOLING the MSM and. Keep this relevant, I don't want this to end. I don't want this fiery conversation to end.

We need a million more whistle-blowers.

IF ...

If your principals dictate independence,war is the only way
... it has come to that.

Don't Give me Liberty, I'll get up and get it myself!

great story!

great story!

Waking up but still brain dead.

This is not a jab at your parents. I do not think that the people waking up now really get it or will ever really get it. They are waking up to certain truths but everything else is just fine and dandy. People are just stuck to far into the left/right paradigm. It is not that we need to replace the left with the right or the right with the left. We need to remove these puppets that act in their own best interests and not the constitution, the supreme law of the land.

Agreed

It isn't necessary that the masses understand the full scope of things, but rather they be informed of the fundamental / foundational problems and how they can be corrected. The situation we find ourselves in could never have occurred without a dishonest monetary system and forced taxation.

YES!

Good to hear! Yeah, my mom... for the FIRST TIME EVER... said something to the effect of "You're right. All of this unConstitutional national security / surveillance stuff has been going on with people [administrations] from BOTH parties."

I about pooped. The tip of the wedge is IN!

Where to go from here? Think I'll just see where she goes; she is a smart lady... she just turned skepticism OFF back when Kennedy got whacked, as a defense mechanism: my parents were married the same day or close to it. Goddamn, that event really fucked with people's heads in an unimaginable way.... But she's back now. Maybe she'll stick around?

(That picture of my parents shaking H.W. Bush's hand at a fundraiser in D.C. for his campaign still hangs on the wall, however. Surreal times, folks! Surreal times....)

What would the Founders do?

Where to go from here?

You're in a good place. My mother is waking up. My father is digging in his heels.

Today he referred to the ideas I stated as "pea-brained".

I have written a verbose response to him with ways that he can educate himself (after saying don't call me names again, not an ultimatum), but I haven't sent it because I really don't want to be divisive.

He's being divisive by calling me names. But I don't need to escalate; after all, I've got cars on his property.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

Vindication!

It must be a wonderful feeling for you...to finally be vindicated as NOT the family loon!! LOL (the way I am now).
Just remember how you felt when the tidal wave of truth washed over you...I went into a 6-month depression. That depression turned into anger and has stayed with me all these years. For your family, I would suggest explaining things slowly...in layers, like an onion. Don't hit them with the grand scheme all at once...their brains will turn to mush and they won't absorb it all...it's too much! Just take time and build the story of how their entire lives have been a lie...church, bank, school, job, taxes, war, medicine, patriotism, "news",...all of it. Dig into the history of Walter Cronkite...show them what a POS he was and that they trusted him in their living room every night...start there. Then build on the rest and how every layer of the onion is based on a lie.
You will need, however, to let them know what they can do to fix things...that this doesn't have to be some post-apocalyptic 'Mad Max' movie story. They'll need some kind of hope to pull them out of the funk you're about to expose to them. Good luck, and good job!!

"The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure, when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them." - Patrick Henry

Good advice!

I guess they have been partiality awake since they voted Ron Paul in the primary and Gary Johnson in November. More because everyone else running was obviously a horrible choice...

I think I'll start with the year 1913. A lot of liberty was lost that year and much of the power stems from there.

They are more scared that no one is doing anything, not that something must be done. They even mentioned how if no one stands up when patriots are taken out or silenced that no one will be left to stand up when they come for you.

Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety

Very Positive

Counterpoint?
