U.S. and World Leaders relying on Stupidity of Public!

Ha - gotta love that headline - pretty obvious huh!

The reality - is that politicians have lied to us for years and now we accept it, we accept it from not only them but also the media, big business and anyone else who wants to. Why? Because we forget how strong we are together!

Check out the U.S. Treasury Department. Are all the facts here on the U.S. Economy? Are not all the laws and regulations public access? Could anyone you know tell you how much we spend on cleaning supplies at the white house? Why not? Because we are STUPID!

So here is the plan:

1.Start a website where people can register for free and work through discussion groups on reviewing regulations and spending. In mass, we can go over regulations and spending, making public the problems! We can expose the overspending of leaders, the misuse of public funds and so on. We can fix things – WE THE PEOPLE!
2.We would need a division of this website – where real news could be reported. I have never been so disappointed in our news agencies as to when they push their own political views on the public – and we TAKE IT! We need to give them a run for their money! We need to tell them that HALF TRUTH'S are NOT ACCEPTABLE!
3.Once we know where all the money goes – we will know where it is being overspent, or some is missing. It is time for the government to stop hiding such things from their people! I used to be ok with “national security” things but the government has crossed the line and it is time for someone to hold them responsible. It is time that government is FOR ALL the people, NOT FOR the rich people!
4.I believe with real commitment, this could lead to an overhaul of the political parties and so on. This would have to be non-partisan and for the good of the human race. So many worry about nuclear war and so on, but it will only happen of we THE PEOPLE allow it! The world is NOT free people! But - if we ALL want it to be - it will be! (and don't worry about the elites - when we stand together, they are nothing)

I was traveling last year – through Dubai, I sat next to a family from Iran on the flight. My first impression was (I did not know they were Iranian at that time) what a nice family. They looked like a typical American family, they spoke English, they joked and were intelligent. Then they were from Iran – I couldn't believe it. They explained to me that it is the governments of the world that hate each other and through their hate, they teach their people to hate – but in reality, most of the people don't hate. It just happens that those who HATE have the biggest mouth's.

I can see very clearly now that governments sow the seeds of hate and distrust in order to control their people more and thus keeping themselves elites. Well – it is the Internet age, it is the age of information. It is time we take on the governments of the world, the people need to begin to stand together and detest this misinformation! Why not? There are some sites where people talk about their countries and so on, but no place where the people from all around the world unite and we get the facts and we work together to change the world, for the people.

I know people who can hack the internet – why dont we know where all these terrorists are posting blogs from? I know accountants who can figure out major accounting messes – why cant we figure out where the government is overspending and balance the budget? The list goes on people – the answer is simple – we do NOT stand together – we need to start or we are the ones at fault for what happens to us!

It just makes me so angry, and for awhile I felt that this was all out of our control – but how wrong I was. If the people of the world stand up and declare – We will not Allow... Anymore! - the politicians would have to listen to us! But we don't anymore – we think that a single person doesn't matter – and the governments love that we think this!
