They look like us. They talk like us. They work with us. Their kids go to school with our kids. They live in the same neighborhood. But they are not like us. They are lost misguided souls.
Now I know that will seem mean and harsh to many, but considering the lack of critical thinking they have displayed that is as nice as one can be and still speak the truth.
I am not just talking about the "birthers" everyone's current whipping boys and girls that lack the intelligence to hide their ignorance. No I am talking about those people across the political spectrum that display that they either lack basic intelligence or they are the most enlightened people to ever walk the face of the Earth.
You know the people I am talking about, the people that know the "real" truth about the history of the world. The ones that have been able to look past all the "lies" that are out there and see the real truth about things. They know the truth about the various secret organizations and machines that rule Planet Earth and control our every thought and our every action. These are the people that forged records so Obama could be President, started the unrest and wars across the world, collapsed the world economy and fixed the election of 2000 so that Bush could be President.
Now people that dislike and distrust the government have always been around and they will always be around. Nothing we will do is going to change their minds. There will always be an element of the population that you will never be able to reason. They believe they know things we don't know and everything we know is wrong. So we are going to have to let them operate in their circles and we are going to have to operate in ours.
The mistake we have always made is that we have always tried to work together. After all we all live in the same country. We have this principle that everyone can say anything they want, no matter how baseless or illogical the claim may be. Freedom of speech and freedom of thought is the very cornerstone of the Untied States.
We need to start exercising another right we have, the right to completely and utterly ignore and reject those things we know are harmful and without any basis in fact. We need to stop giving all statements the same weight and respect. Lies should never be held to the same integrity as the truth.
When we do that, then the rest of us can focus on actually working together to make this country and world the best we can. We can disagree on ideas and views on any and every subject. What we can not do is allow poison into our system.
There is nothing at all we can do for those other folks. Just let them handle their affairs. You never know they may actually know the "real" truth and we are the ones that are lost and clueless.
