Am I just paranoid? Am I a truther? Am I a conspiracy theorist? Am I a wacko? Am I a racist?
These are terms that I have had used to describe me. Usually it is a Sheeple that throws out these slang terms, someone, uneducated, who wants to believe that the government, that society, will always be there. That law enforcement and the military will be able quell any unrest as in the Watts riots and Rodney King riots.
I am going to work my way backwards through these. A Racist….Is it not funny that the two major society upheavals that came to my mind were from and started by the African-American community, being incited by ignorant people in their own race. Does this make me Racist, or does this make me an informed person who studied the incident to find out what caused it, ( a lot of which could have been avoided without corrupt law enforcement cronyism i.e. the Dorner case we just had). I become Racist because I do not condone destruction of other people’s lives and property? I am Racist because this is their way of expressing their anger?……..Hey, do what I did, start a blog….Inform the masses peacefully.
A Wacko……I gotta get out my tin foil hat for this one. in 1995 my home was called “The Foothill Freeman Compound” and I was called “Jim Koresh” for speaking about economic collapse, preparedness and political comments that are the platform (core beliefs) of the Tea Party now. I now embrace being called Wacko, probably as much as Samuel Adams and John Hancock embraced being called Founding Fathers.
A Conspiracy Theorist. Well, lets see. I sit and watch videos, read data, compile facts look at pictures and scientifically analyze all the data given to me by both government and “Conspiracy Theorists”. The government’s stand is, ” accept it because we say it is true”. On the other side we have structural engineers, economists, military strategists, and former government officials that quit their job and “blew the whistle” on the corruption. Let me ask you this? When lately have you had a politician tell you the truth? Yet, you take their word over people who are highly trained and educated, people who are EXPERTS in their field. Conspiracy theory? I believe it is more Conspiracy Fact !!
A Truther……My favorite…This is actually the easiest one…….WHAT IS THE OPPOSITE ?!!!!
