America’s history is filled with conspiracy theories. The shooting of John F. Kennedy, the moon landing and the source of the AIDs virus are just a few. Ever since Sept. 11, 2001, more and more conspiracies have developed, questioning who was really behind the attacks on the World Trade Center.
A poll conducted last month by YouGov.com, revealed that a whopping 46 percent of Americans believe that our government had some direct involvement with the bombing of the World Trade Center (WTC); primarily with the demolition of WTC Building 7.
You can look on the Internet and find plenty of videos showing that WTC 7 collapses after the Twin Towers, and it does look a little questionable. The building seemed far from the Twin Towers, and I don’t think the rubble from the Towers collapsing had enough force to destroy the foundation of WTC 7 and collapse it in the way that it did. Plus, this occurred hours after the original attack. It really does look as if it collapsed due to a
But that is not the only reason why people may think that the government had something to do with the collapse of WTC 7. From what we have seen throughout history is that the United States government will lie to the American people. President Nixon lied about Watergate, President George W. Bush lied about there being weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and President Obama lied about the NSA spying on the American people. It seems apparent that we cannot trust our government
What we are seeing today is the government is in a partial shutdown with the threat of economic collapse if the debt ceiling isn’t raised. Does the government really have our best interest in mind? No, the careerist politicians are on the power run to help their friends and themselves at the American people’s expense. Our government is no longer “We the People.” It is now “Those People.” Our congressmen, senators and state representatives are not fulfilling their duty to this country.
Maybe we really do need to start restricting our government. It has clearly become a giant machine that consumes our lives and livelihoods and spews out debt, lies and restrictions on our freedom. It was James Madison who said, “The truth is that all men having power ought to be mistrusted.” Only through self-governing can we end this charade of freedom and exist in a more truly free and honest nation. We should learn to trust our neighbors, but never
In the end, I don’t think we will ever truly know what caused the collapse of WTC 7. While its collapse did not result in the loss of life, it has led some to question the government’s involvement. If the American people are ever to learn that the government was behind what has been the worst attack on American soil, there will be a highly overdue uprising.
