The trick is looking at all the sources as critically and open minded as you can to come up with the closest thing to the real truth.

The only real truth here is theirs, they own it, propagate it and when necessary fabricate it.

The real truth is out there, but the majority of people are never inclined to look for it, so the official truth is always their default "truth"

Truth that's always going to be subjective.

Subject to their agendas, objectives and will..

Excellent quote.

That's a great thought, but the truth is a vast majority of Americans, still have faith in Government and that it can be corrected through the bi-partisan process.

While I find it personal sad and deplorable the government and media do have so little respect for Americans that they don't even feel compelled to offer any credible proof for monumental events like this, I also see it as likely being the only thing that eventually discourages enough Americans to stop believing in the government and it's own uselss system to change it through a corrupt process than never will.

Hopefully stories like this one make an impact towards that end.

Thanks for posting.

The problem we have to consider is; how many people actually care? ATS is a strange beast. The people that come here, no matter how wrong we may think they are with thier opinions
are at least engaged and contributing. Too many people now are too complacent and living by the "whatever will be will be" attitude. The media has diluted thier brains with such crap now a days, and given them so many options. How many people actually know what is going on, let alone watch an actual news show? I would wager that unless there is a system wide break in programming, like we saw the night of the announcement, people would just flip to a different channel to continue the dumbing down.

They know that they have won. We can talk about change all we want, yet they know we, as a larger group, are too lazy. Everyone leaves it up to someone else. We are the vocal minority and they just don't care about us, as long as they can keep the rest of Western world brain-dead, apathetic, and paying taxes, what owrries do they have?
