I hereby ask, to anyone at ATS, why we cant just form a march to President Bush's office/house (or some other official still surviving from that era) and start demanding to know the truth?

Ok I read a little on that website you sent... lol it seems that we really do not have much of the freedom to information... they could and would say anything that we want to know would be of 'national security', hence denying us the right to the freedom of information..
Heres a little rant to the US government:
Hey, you expect this to be a democracy, when in fact we really have no knowledge over the topics of main concern in OUR country... The government gives out so much propaganda/motivation to get out and vote, as long as you are of legal age, yet they never really go into the topics that are IMPORTANT to OUR world today. Soon, Russia/UK/France/where ever - India? Pakistan? Iran? (who knows? who really gives a flyingfugg?) are going to discover and develop the same technology that you guys have, and then you going to come out and say you already have it, lessening the support of your own people.. possibly turning into Instability between the peoples and your so-called 'democracy'.
A democracy is not a council of people who know the secrets and make their decisions based on the vies of what? 12-15 peoples is it? A democracy is one where everyone, and i mean EVERYONE, gets to learn of the knowledge of every matter important to the nation/world and they would decide, by some sort of majority, on the best course of the Issue. This has never happened in US history, and until anyone proves this statement wrong, I stand by it firmly.
Maybe I'm wrong and my views are quite bogus, but I always thought that a good society was one where the people actually count... Our democracy sounds a lot like a Dictatorship, when you take in regard the number of citizens who dont know #, and the number of "officials" who actually make the decisions around here.
I guess that just needed to come off my chest.. I hate the fact that any person on this planet should be denied any form of knowledge, thats BS. But then again, maybe it is for the best of the world right now, who knows?
If anyone has anything to say in reply, feel free.. Shun it if you like, My views are no more important than anyone elses .
