Let me give you my perspective, based on experience. I am currently a born-again independent. For many years I was a staunch Republican and became
almost belligerent after 9/11. I hated listening to anyone saying anything against the establishment and thought Son of a Bush was my hero. I don't
know how my wife could stand me back then. I'm lucky to still be happily married. I was such a right-winger. I even got into an argument with one
of my brothers sent me the very first video questioning the Pentagon crash (around 2002). I told him it was terrorist propaganda. Then I started
listening to Alex Jones and others and hated all of them, at first. However, as time went by, they started making sense. I started listening to
Fast forward to 2007. I am embarrassed to have voted for Son of a Bush twice and only see Ron Paul as the only choice. However, whenever I point the
checkered sky to my wife or talk about 9/11 and all its impossible characteristics, she thinks I am bipolar. First, this ultra right winger and now,
this conspiracy theorist. Even my family, which is very conservative is starting to wonder what is wrong with me. I, like you, am awake now. I have
connected the dots and feel more informed when not watching regular news.
Sorry for the long post but wanted to share my experience. As one member said above, let her learn by osmosis. I honestly think very soon everyone
will start realizing something is wrong. If your girlfriend knew you knew all along, maybe she'll get pissed and "dump" you because you never told
her you knew.
No, seriously, I guess it's a CATCH 22. Start small. Have her watch Loose Change with you and see what happens afterwards. If
she says it's boring, change the movie; and if she likes it and wants conversation about it, you're on the right rack. Either way you'll know how
to proceed. Good luck!
P.S. Although many doubt on the following two individuals (both deceased), you might know Bill Cooper and Phil Schneider, they opened my eyes to look
for answers elsewhere. And I have.
