I find it refreshing when someone with a public platform that reaches many people tries to pull back the curtain to expose the lies we have all been told. If for no other reason, it serves the purpose of reassuring those of us who have questioned the lies from early on that we are not alone and we are not crazy for questioning what we have been told. It also exposes the lies to a wider audience. The more the mainstream media and the politicians in power try to ridicule and discredit these people who publicly speak out and question what they try to sell us (for example, Charlie Sheen, Rosie O’Donnell ) the closer to the truth we know we are. The pundits and the politicians never answer the questions being asked, or back up their arguments with fact. They go straight to name calling and character assassination. Because the truth and what it will reveal, and the responsibility they will have to take if the truth came out scares them…




– Half a million soldiers fly across the water.
One in ten are never comin’ back again.
Fifty thousand sons who never grew to fathers.
Don’t you ever wonder who they might have been?

What if you could’ve been there on that day in Dallas?
What if you could wrestle back the hands of time?
Maybe somethin’ could’ve been done in Memphis.
We wouldn’t be livin’ in a dream that’s died.

Go on and tell yourself again there are no secrets.
Go on and tell yourself that you don’t want to know.
It’s best that you believe that you don’t hear the footsteps
That follow you around wherever you go.

Maybe you were thinkin’ that it didn’t matter.
Maybe you believed nobody else would care.
But once you’ve added every little lie together
You finally find the truth was always waiting there.
