Yes, but what about ALL OF THOSE MANY, MANY, MANY conspiracy theories that didn't pan out?
Very few ever actually have.
In no way will you ever hear me say that I trust the government implicitly. But I do my homework, I do my due diligence in whatever I hear. Why?
Because I don't want to be deceived anymore by the government than I do by idiots on conspiracy forums who can't be bothered to do any real
research(not at all directed at you maya..I'm speaking generally).
But at the same time I don't approach everything from a standpoint that assumes the government is lying. The fact is, when the government does lie I
usually know about it before the government actually lies. Why? because I spend more time looking at RAW data rather than analysis by others. I know
the facts they are distorting before they distort them.
I also usually know when they are telling the truth.
When I don't know either way i give the benefit of the doubt until all facts are known. I don't like having egg on my face.
I didn't comment or say a word on the birther issue. Not because I didn't care, but because I wanted something solid and it never materialize.
I didn't call Obama a closet socialist or even agree with what other were saying to that tune until I fully looked into the people surrounding him.
Now I'm convinced he is.
I also didn't buy so many of the BS conspiracy theories that NEVER panned out about Bush.
There's more, but I won't waste your time or mine going through the list.
I fault people for what they actually did or said, not what other people say they did or said. I wait to make up my own mind.
Hence my approach. I don't want to be a man with a hammer seeing nails everywhere I go. I don't wanna be a Conspiracy Theorist seeing conspiracy in
everything I see and hear. That's no way to live life.
