“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” — Joseph Goebbels
It is a dangerous thing when people know the truth, but are far to afraid to discuss it because of how they will be viewed and the possible negative reactions of others. I may not be able to provide the physical evidence to prove that Barack Husein Obama was not in fact born in the United States and therefore his presidency is a farce. But i can provide a mountain of ever growing evidence to the contrary. I may be negatively labeled as a “birther” by those who refuse to do their own research, as the only defense they have against their hypnotizing leader. Believers of the president’s birth in America will also try to use his birth certificate as evidence. This would be all I need to prevent any further research, but a a red flag went up when it took the white house nearly three years to even present that.
For most, the issue is settled – Barack Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii on Aug 4,1961. For others this game has been dragged out for far too long, especially with election season approaching once again. Even if the latter statement of his Hawaiian birth were true, that does not end the argument that he should be sent packing from the oval office. How anyone can still support this man, without benifetting from his lies, is beyond my comprehension.
It is also important to understand that we must not direct all of our stress towards Obama. He takes the praise when the U.S is in good shape, and the flak when the U.S is in bad shape. He is a fall guy, in short.
Obama promised transparency in his adminstration. But, he has ran the most secretive administration ever. Everything always being put under the issue of national security.
He promised to end the wars around the world and bring our troops home. But any belief that this true is a gross misconception. He withdrew troops from Iraq, but then sent 12,000 U.S troops to Libya. Leaving 50,000 remanding troops in Iraq to no longer be considered soldiers, but “peacekeeprs”. This does not count the covert operations, private mercenaries and drone strikes that will continue to devastate Iraq and other parts of the Mildle East. In Afghanistan the U.S military is still in full force with its allies and NATO, but says that forces will be withdrawn by 2014 or 2015 a the latest. Chief of NATO, Fogh Rasmussen said:
“I consider it of utmost importance to continue our military operations, because the fact is that it is the increasing military pressure on the Taliban and the Taliban leadership that has stimulated the reconciliation talks…So there is no alternative to continuing the military operations.”
The one thing about all of these withdrawal plans is that will call for billions in aid to these countries for training of their militaries and devastated regions. Money that the U.S does not have to spend at home little alone abroad.
