Last week I posed a question whether anyone out there believed anything that the Federal gov’t says?
From the lack of responses, I am going to proceed, that the majority of people conclude that most of what comes from our gov’t is BS!
So, what I want to know is when did it become OK for our gov’t to lie to us?
Would we have accepted GW’s lies about Iraq before 911?
Now I know I am showing my age when I make this comparison, but our country is starting to remind me of the USSR during the cold war.
Today’s America bears stark resemblance to the totalitarian govt that ran and regulated everything including business, education, sports, people’s personal lives within the confines of their own homes.
People in the USSR allegedly were investigated for no reason but solely because the gov’t wanted to monitor their actions.
The media reflected the gov’t propaganda and the voices of the people were seldom heard or considered. What was seen were the consequences of one’s actions when they stood up to the Soviet gov’t and how those people quickly disappeared.
The Military was a huge part of the Soviet machinery as was their misguided notion that their’s was the great union in the history of the world that could not be taken down. I believe that is defined as arrogance.
I remember as a little girl in the middle of the RED SCARE here in America in the 50’s and 60’s, my mother telling me that the communist beliefs were they would never have to invade America but that instead America would crumble from within.
If we can not have faith in our gov’t, then it is necessary for us to change the gov’t. At least while we still can. The consequence of burying our heads in the sand any longer is that we will become what we once hated and fought against.
And all because we became tolerant of lies from our Government!
