169. Well,
I would argue that some of us--myself and, judging from your response, you--prefer to trust what people say. Isn't that what it means to have integrity--that a person with integrity is a truthful person?

Plus, we are taught to trust our government (good ol' patriotism, that last refuge to which a scoundrel clings...), and to exercise our right to vote. We are TRAINED to view voting as a civic duty AND a fundamental right.

I think Frank Zappa was right. Now, TPTB are pulling down the curtains, so that we can clearly see the brick wall. I suspect they are so confident in their mendacity that they think we'll fuss for a little while, and then adjust to the new scenery.

They are so very wrong...
