    Keep Americans attention focused on everything else besides the corrupt Government lining their pockets from corporate funds.

    Conspiracy theories is one of the best tools they use.

    American Idol and Big Brother still get ratings.
    People destroy cars over sports games
    People take to the streets over words they don't like
    The Lardashians are famous.

    Yeah it's working.

    If you found out that everything you have been taught was a lie? How would you feel?

    I think the dumb level is staying pretty constant, its the fact that social media, message boards, etc. make it easier to see. Further, all these news shows on TV and the internet that are not factual, but opinions make people dumber. They simply don't have the brain capacity to read it and realize they are not reading facts and they turn around and spew it forth.

    I do think that and feel pretty powerless to control anything outside my tiny sphere of influence.
