Who will speak the truth?

Last edited Tue Apr 21, 2015, 11:22 AM - Edit history (1)

My life is a lie,

a fiction, a ruse. I live it day in and day out and it never goes away. It won't go away until the truth can be set free. I must keep living this fiction because not doing so is unbearable. I can not function on a day to day basis without pushing the truth deep down inside. For years I tried to live truthfully and it nearly killed me- the stress, the anguish, the shear horror of it all was too much. Out of necessity I learned to lie, to put away the truth, to box it up far away in order to function in this society.

What is this truth you ask?

Well, it started about 15 years ago. Here are a few bullet points.

- Election theft 2000.

Our Executive branch was handed over to Bush, Cheney, and the PNAC Republicans by a partisan supreme court.

- Illegal invasion and destruction of Iraq by the perpetrators of Election theft 2000.

Millions dead and a modern secular sovereign country destroyed for potentially generations based on a lie. Vice President's company and MIC rake in 100s of billions that future generations will need to pay off. A great theft from the citizens of the United States and a great murder of hundred of thousands of Iraqis. No one is held accountable.

- Election theft 2004

Brought to you by that same criminal cabal via voter suppression and vote flipping in Ohio.

-The great theft of 2008.

Banking industry crushes the US economy and stock market, causing tens of millions to lose their homes, tens of millions more to lose their jobs, and financial harm to possibly hundreds of millions of US citizens. No perpetrators are brought no justice. In fact just the opposite occurred. The criminals hold seats of power within our government and advise both the current President and our “front runner” for 2016.

The above list is a start, but there is so much more.

-Murder of innocent children in foreign lands via drone strikes. (collateral damage)
-The continued selling out the American citizens who are already crushed financially via “Trade Agreements”.
-The long term imprisonment and outright torture of foreign citizens for years without charge.
-The continued wars and wholesale destruction of both Afghanistan and Iraq, much of which was based on lies.
-The warrant-less spying and data collection of US citizens by the government.
-The prosecution of any wistleblower who dares to speak the truth against this government.
-International war criminals, murderers, and perpetrators of an all-out coup of the United states government walk free to this day. No one has even hinted at even investigating any of the events they masterminded and followed through with.


When I think of the future I dream of being free. Free to live my life without the need to hide from the truth, however awful it may be. Free to live honest again. Free to move forward without the chains of the past holding everything back. When I see a future of eight more years with Hillary as President, I see eight more years that I will continue to live in the lie. This is not how I wish to spend the next decade.

Lie, built upon lie, built upon lie. In my opinion that is what this nation is currently and what our future holds if we do not have to courage to pursue truth. Someone needs to tell the truth. Or, at a minimum, someone needs to say, “I will search for the truth” and truly look into the the string of events that has brought us where we are today.

If someone is willing to do this, they will have my backing, my financial support (what little I can offer), and above all they will have

5. Nobody


Why is that? Too scared? Personal self interest? I want to understand the reasoning behind the daily dose of denial. How can so many millions continue to live in a lie. The history of this nation started with the genocide of the indigenous population. Let's start there and work forward. I would love to see a second edition of "The Peoples history of the United States" with modern events. I liked John Perkins book, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, but there is much more story out there than that.

3. Philosophical Question

What if realizing your idea of "freedom" and "truth" causes someone else who's having to live in that world to believe as you do currently; that they now have to live a lie? Would that bother you?

4. honestly


I feel like a character in an Orwellian novel.

What happens if we do nothing? Continue the lie for generations until another foreign entity has the ability to forcefully overthrow us? There could be events further back in history, but I only heard about them historically.

The amount of comments here makes me wonder. I thought the story would resonate with more members. Was not DU created in response to election theft 2000?

So, it comes down to what is easiest? Easier to keep the spin going than to say "stop, let's think this through."

I may need to leave the US, and not return, if that is possible. I should not have posted this OP, going to be a rough one today.
