Hello ATS! I feel very lucky to have discovered this site. The free exchange of controversial ideas and opinions is what the internet is all about
if you ask me.
I live in a bit of a country area in the USA, so it can be hard for me to find people to even entertain the idea that their government might be lying
I have been called a conspiracy theorist on several occasions, and I resent the fact that any questioning of the governments actions, stories, and
motivations earns me a label that usually guarantees an immediate shut down from whoever I am talking to.
This is the United States of America! It is our right, nay, even our DUTY, as American citizens to question the motivations of our government and
leaders. It is the idea this great country was founded on, and it saddens me to see our rights slipping away with every day that passes.
America IS the greatest country in the world, and it is our responsibility as citizens to do our utmost to make sure that the greed and
underhandedness of our political leaders does not rob us of this.
To those of you from other countries, please don't take offense! The fact that I feel that I live in the greatest country on Earth should in no way
be taken as an attack on any other country. If you feel like where you live is the greatest country on Earth, good! Become involved in your
communities, fight the human tendency to abuse those weaker on you, and together we can make Earth the greatest planet in the Milky Way!
I love you Mankind! For all our failings, I believe that humans are basically good, and though the occasional bad apple can do amazing amounts of
damage, we can rise above our baser instincts and learn to live together.
