Yes! I AM a Conspiracy Theorist!

I'm tired of being a "good little girl". I'm tired of being told (by well-meaning people I might add) that I don't have my facts straight, that there's not enough evidence to draw conclusions, that certain subjects could be taken the wrong way, etc., etc., etc.! The final blow comes when some smart@** makes the statement, "Oh! She's just a conspiracy theorist!" and shunts me to that undesirable box reserved for "crazy" and/or naive people! Well let me set the record straight right now! Yes! I AM a conspiracy theorist! If believing that those in power are willing to do anything to stay in power makes me a conspiracy theorist, I will gladly take on the name!

I began waking up a few years ago when I started to have problems with my teenage daughter. Her problems were much larger than the average--she did not fit into the nice little box that worked so neatly for my sons and myself. I was forced to ask new questions in my search for answers. I began to see information I had previously ignored--information that made me question my whole reality. It has not been an easy journey, but it is one I am happy I made because it has given me a much a much more solid foundation to build my life on.

Lies are funny things. Once you uncover one, they become much more easy to identify. They begin to pop up all over the place, and you wonder why you never noticed them before! My eyes opened up when I realized how dead our food is and how the lack of nutrients in our food has led to great increases in things like ADHD, autism, cancer, heart disease, depression, bipolar, etc. Then I became aware of the fact that people who try to produce healthy food (usually small farmers) go under due to regulations and other things instituted to protect us (when really all they protect is Big Agri and Big Business). As I continued down this rabbit hole, I began to see the lies in other parts of our society--things like the ultra-rich really are becoming richer while the middle class dwindles and the poor class increases. They truly have global monopolies which have taken over our planet, all the while convincing us we still have a free market! (A great article on the subject can be found at David Wilcock's site called The Great Revealing: US Marshals Expose Biggest Scandal In History)  If we had a free market, Goldman Sachs and the other big banks would never have gotten bailouts and would no longer be in operation! (Think "too big to fail"!) Our society has been built on a foundation of lies--all designed to keep us docile and help maintain the status quo of those in power.

Who gets to decide how many facts I need in order to get them straight? How much evidence is enough to be conclusive? Which subjects are off limits because they might be taken the wrong way? I am convinced the government would like to make those decisions and turn us into a civilization of compliant, apathetic zombies gullible enough to believe the propaganda thrown at them, making it easy for the government and businesses to take whatever money is left to be taken! They definitely want to convince you that they are basically good people just like you--hard working and "honest"--people who are only looking out for your best interests!

Put me in the "crazy" box if you have to, but I will not be intimidated into compliance! Here and now, I gladly take on the title of Conspiracy Theorist! Judge me if you dare!!! Just remember, if they take me and my big mouth away before they come for you, you have been warned!

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me--and there was no one left to speak for me.

  1. Cindy, I agree with your thoughts. Many outlandish "conspiracy theories" have been proven correct by the WikiLeaks documents. Robert Gates' comment in senate hearing committee that “most governments lie to each other. That’s the way business gets done.” is very revealing too.

    It seems like that calling someone or some position a "conspiracy theory" is a quick way to shut people up. That's all.
