When one looks at what has been happening over the last 10 years or so, it has become evident to all but the brain dead, that many of the "conspiracy"
theories debated on ATS are no longer conspiracies, they are just plain FACTS.
Let's look at some of them:
1.) The most obvious is the "conspiracy" that the government is spying on us.
Needless to say, that has been proven to be a fact"
A.) The NSA is engaged in a full blown effort to record every electronic device on earth. In addition, it has been confirmed that the government
routinely opens even or snail mail.
B.) The NSA has built the largest data center on earth, saving virtually everything that they intercept. Even our phone conversations are
C.) The government now flies drones over American cities, towns, and just about anything it wants, without challenge(except for Rand Paul).
2.) The government now uses your personal views to harass you with the IRS.
3.) Both parties routinely make agreements in private, to lessen our freedom, despite the fact that the current administration promised the most
"open" administration in history.
4.)Your Senators and Congresspersons, once elected, now ignore your mail, calls, and petitions, instead sending form letters or emails to us,
telling us that they will "keep your views in mind, when they vote on a bill".
5.) The government says it was not interested in the entire UFO issue, despite the fact that many government officials, astronauts, and even some
Presidents have virtually admitted that they were very interested and concerned about UFO's all these years.
6.) The government tells us that they are concerned about our military men and women, when it is a fact that they have continuously left our men and
women out to dry on hundreds of missions.
7.) The government lies over and over when they tell us that, for instance, the Benghazi incident was caused by an internet video that few people
ever saw, and despite the fact that videos of the attack proved that it was pre-planned, well before the video was even posted.
8.) Congress rarely, if ever, reads the bills they pass, because those bills were written by large Corporations, who in turn reward those
congresspersons with "campaign contributions", laundered through shell organizations.
9.) I could go on and on, but the point is that most conspiracies discussed here have become reality.
So, I ask ATS members- Should we still call ATS a Conspiracy Site? I know it is billed otherwise, but outside ATS, people still refer to it as a
