    Hello all, I am new to the site and wanted to get a gist of the majorities thoughts on the current 'fads' that are being promoted by the likes of Alex Jones, Stefan Molyneux, and some libertarians. More specifically, I am speaking of the following notions:

    1. There is a group of secretive uber-rich men who are working toward a one world government, and monetary system, in order to take control of the whole world and put all of us into some kind of slavery.

    2. Government is always bad, b/c power corrupts, and therefore we don't need it. What we need is unrestrained free market economics and that will fix everything. "I shouldn't have to pay for someone else's healthcare!"

    3. All of the problems that are making America "fail" today are happening (or have happened) due to the infringement on (or straying away from) the Constitution of the United States (i.e. - unconstitutional mandates like the Federal Reserve).

    I should note that I recently had a quite lengthy gun control debate with a Libertarian type on Facebook and toward the end of the debate he plugged his new website (http://wakefromthedream.wordpress.com/) while using arguments that sounded very similar to the ones above.

    Your thoughts?

    #1 - Already fact. The US Congress & Supreme Court is owned by the uber rich. #2 - Totally false. Less government means more power for the uber rich we need more, honest, government free from the moneyed interests of the wealth and corporations! #3- Totally false again. The problems of today are caused by Right Wing, religious zealots and Libertarian Conservatives. These are the forces that try to drag us back to the Middle Ages. Look at gun control, for example, fifty years ago no one would be walking around carrying a weapon openly, much less in a school or bar or church. Today thanks to the cowardly legislators and Supreme Court this is considered not only allowable under the Constitution but desirable. The Constitution is now being interpreted to mean whatever those in power want it to mean, not the other way around.

    Sure, I agree; thanks for calling PGR a wise man, I'll second that (he's also a great craftsman; good with his hands as well; uses these also to drink beer!!)

    Hello "median": Glad to hear you have "seen the light" --- as they say: ) What or who was responsible for your perceptual
    renaissance? What can possibly alter the Ego of a right-winger? (Sort of the impossible dream, -- like waking the Dead).

    Having spent several years "discussing" (& "cussing") with Birchers, it is eye-opening to even Imagine there could be an awakening of the Mind,
    even on an "instinctual" level. Usually, after mopping up the blood, & applying a tourniquet, I limp away, sobbing into my hankie.

    WELCOME ABOARD. This bunch will always keep you entertained. Even when occasionally sober...
