Now I know a few people will get mad at me over this post. But I think most of the conspiracy theories I read about on the web are a waste of time. You will notice that in this blog, I stay away from them. Do I believe the government is corrupt, yes I do. I also believe that they are working hard to take our rights away and one effective tool that they have is to make us look like idiots.
I still remember back in the 1960’s when the Chinese were supposed to be massing across the border in Mexico. This rumor went around for several years. It seems like everytime a member of a foreign military is seen in the US someone writes about how we are being invaded. Fema camps are another one, I see articles on all the time. There are supposed to be three near me. Being the curious type, I have visited all three and have not seen any evidence of one, although admittedly the land is controlled by the Federal Government, but still accessible.
Now I am not saying that everyone is wrong or that all conspiracy theories are wrong. However, when you spread outlandish theories it helps the people who are attempting to take our rights away. People spread conspiracy theories for one of several reasons, to make money, attract attention, something to talk about or make them selfs seem important, or maybe they do know the truth.
Now I am not telling you to hide your head in the sand and ignore everything, but take a look at your news sources. If they are consistently alarmist and nothing ever seems to happen, start to question them. I know that if I were on the other side I would want this type of rumors to spread. Every time a rumor is spread that is wild and easy to discredit it hurts us.
Before you post an article or foreword it to others, take the time to check it out. Remember there are a lot of trolls out there. Intelligence is important, but you have to be able to trust your sources. Everytime any of us spread wrong conspiracy theories we only hurt our cause of preserving our way of life and returning to constitutional government.
