Smear campaigns are one of the things the Gubberment does extremely well. They do it all the time. And now they've embarked on a smear campaign against Responsible Citizens who want the truth.

Responsible citizens who want the truth? That's quite the subjective statement and it's also very disingenuous.

What we have a great deal of the time is unanswered questions people refuse to answer, huge gaping holes, odd or inexplicable behavior, and other people who are willing to simply take someone's word for something allow decisions, sometimes life-and-death decisions, to be made based on someone's word and without complete evidence and proof.

Lets face facts. Conspiracy theorists are a VERY big thorn in the side of anyone with political or monetary power. We scrutinize almost EVERY major story that could possibly be untrue (and rightfully so). What I'm expecting from the latest fiasco (OBL's death) is a full on information war.

I dont see myself as a conspiracy theorist, I think we should be called Information analysts.
After all that is what we do. We watch the news and analyze the information, see what people are saying on alternative news sites, do some research and then come to our own decisions about what is true.
The powers that be do not like people asking too many questions or asking for facts or proof for what we are being told. We are supposed to be good little sheeple and just accept what they say as gospel.
Well that just isnt going to happen with me. Ive always had an inquiring mind and always look at things from other angles and will continue to do so and refuse to accept things on face value just because im told its true.
