But I propose either Full Congressional hearings, and/or a 9/11 Truth and Reconciliation Commission, which would work under many of the same premises as did the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission. In pursuing these objectives, there might just be a possibility of saving our Republic.
The Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) was a court-like restorative justice body assembled in South Africa after the abolition of apartheid. Witnesses who were identified as victims of gross human rights violations were invited to give statements about their experiences, and some were selected for public hearings. Perpetrators of violence could also give testimony and request amnesty from both civil and criminal prosecution. The TRC, the first of the nineteen held internationally to stage public hearings, was seen by many as a crucial component of the transition to full and free democracy in South Africa. Despite some flaws, it is generally (although not universally) thought to have been successful.
That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security

They will shout you down for so much as expressing an opinion that they don't first pre-approve. You have to have proof! No opinions allowed. Think about this. Because that's 98% of the poison in the 9/11 well right there.

Quite surprising since there are literally thousands of people believing in 911 conspiracy and perhaps hundreds actively investigating and searching for some.
But whats the point, after learning about 9/11 and seeing it for the obvious conspiracy that it is, of arguing over details? It was bombs in the towers. It was nano thermite. No, only thermite. Then another will say mini nukes, bombs and thermite, but those that say nano thermite are shills. Energy weapons it was,quips another.
Who really cares how they did it and who really thinks that arguing on the internet over such trivialities will produce any good results? If you always do what you have always done, you will always get what you have always got.
Let me emphasize something here. We don't need to prove every little aspect of 9/11. If we feel, as a populace that we don't like the answers given to us, over such a high crime as 9/11, and we feel our leaders are being dishonest about this, we have the right to alter or abolish our government.
It's like when your 7 year old comes home from school 6 hours late, and has an unbelievable tall tale of why he was 6 hours late, and is filled with all sorts of lies, does the parent then feel the need to disprove every single one of the childs lies before grounding him for a month? No. They know they are being lied to, and they punish their child accordingly. In the same manner we should so act. While we still can.

As most people can see, this poll isn't worth a hill of beans. Notice how they didn't have a simple question, like;
Do you believe that the government lied to the American people regarding the attacks on 9/11?

The 9/11 well is poisoned by disinfo artists creating easily-refuted claims. How are people supposed to take anything from the 9/11 truth movement seriously when there are disinfo artists creating disinfo theories like "pods", no planes at the WTC, "energy weapons brought the WTC down", "nukes brought the WTC down", holograms, tv fakery, "dead passengers look like living, well-known people"?
When someone ignores the factual refutations of such theories and continues to peddle those theories regardless of the facts, then they only have one objective in mind: to purposely distort and defame the credibility of the 9/11 truth movement.
People see those ridiculous theories and they laugh their asses off and then retain the impression that the truth movement is a farce. We need people to look at what the truth movement is saying. Not walk away laughing at ridiculous, easily-refutable nonsense.
Thankfully, the 9/11 truth movement itself is not falling for any of the above disinfo as none of it is supported anywhere in the movement. And we need to make sure that people who are new and just starting to look into 9/11 and the truth movement, know that the 9/11 truth movement does not support the above disinfo theories.
