Since I was young, I knew the Times we are living were coming. I wanted to be prepared and went through many stages of preparedness. Over the last few years I have learned I cannot afford to keep my little American Dream going, because the Government seems to want to keep me in servitude to the state. I am opting out, and trying to downsize, and will quit my job making less that $35,000 to go to a $15,000 or less job so that I can be under the line of poverty. (they seem to leave poor alone if they stay off system dole) I built a small ‘Jed Clampett” cabin on some land and plan to go off grid with my move there, I do this because I can’t keep paying the tab for all the Government wants to put on my shoulders via Taxes ( I refuse to pay, and will be burdened with that too)
My question is,, Can you give me some Hope? Tell me something good and constructive to DO about what is left of America, for those of us who seem to be fighting an uphill battle without the vision of winning this ‘war’. So many of us are now at the point of breaking, and many don’t even try anymore as they have conceded defeat. I am not conceded to defeat, but feel hopeless sometimes when I think of the reality. I feel betrayed by my fellow Americans because of Apathy.
My question is this:Aside from the two-party stranglehold on the American electorate, What particular facet of modern American politics makes you the most angry and why?

Thinking back, I tried to be as open as I could be. As soon as I got out of office, I exposed that the CIA was involved in local government. Now I can't tell you exactly who that person is, because I could go to prison for it.
What's been the most terrifying thing you've found out in all your years of research?
In the xfiles episode 'Jose Chung's From Outer Space' your Man in Black character said: "Some alien encounters are hoaxes perpetrated by your government to manipulate the public. Some of these hoaxes are intentionally revealed to manipulate the truth-seekers, who become discredited if they disclose the deliberately absurd deception." Did you have an itch, as the puppetmaster of your character, that you might be uttering some truth?
