We live in the "land of the free." It costs us nothing, and we enjoy every civil freedom known to humankind. We've got everything Scandinavia ever dreamed of having due to our egalitarian and democratic rule of law, with fair courts and political representatives.
Our money is backed by gold bullion stored safely in Fort Knox. Don't even get us started on what Zeitgeist the Movie said. We have the right to worship, or not worship, as we wish. It's why terrorists hate us: They can't stand how free and happy we are.
The first thing police officers say to those who are innocent until proven guilty is, "Hey, friend, you have a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and you have some Miranda rights, too; let me read them off for you."
We don't make war. We're a free and peace-loving people. Other countries force us into conflict. And when our hand is forced and we reluctantly send our brave and honorable sons and daughters abroad as soldiers, they don't pillage, extra-judicially execute, or rape Vietnamese...Iraqi girls. (Sure, there are always a few bad apples, rogue elements, but those are the exceptions, not the commissioned officers or CIA/FBI/NSA/NSC conspiracy leaders).
Our favorite food is apple pie. Our favorite girl is mom. We place our trust in God. At least that's what we were taught in public school. They don't really explain what's going on in the news. But teachers do say "conspiracies" are just theories, like evolution. We don't have to believe anything, because good Americans can make up their own minds.
So that being the case, How could there be a "secret" government? We have three branches of government. They meet in Washington and never in private to discuss anything that could be illegal (and thus conspiratorial). We directly elect our leader and representatives by a majority of our votes in clean and fair elections.
To say any different would not be putting on the patriot act. And we don't like that. Semper fi, hail to the chief, "Hitler bad, Vandals good." Bottom line, if anyone calls it a "conspiracy," that means it's an untrue theory! Who's even ever heard of this William Cooper? There's one thing that's sure: The government does not lie to us. The government does not lie to us. The government does not lie to us.
