I’ve not written this book because I get off on talking about conspiracies. I’ve written it because, until we face the terrible reality of the assassinations and the governmental drug dealing and the stolen elections and the rest—until we look at how, slowly and insipidly, the most venal of men took control of our nation, we don’t stand a chance of putting things back on track. I’m not saying that knowledge sets us free, but it does force us to wake up and realize that we’re on the brink of losing everything the founders of our country stood for and bequeathed to us.
“Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of a day; but a series of oppressions, begun at a distinguished period and pursued unalterably through every change of ministers, too plainly prove a deliberate, systematic plan of reducing [a people] to slavery.” —Thomas Jefferson: Rights of British America, 1774
“Cherish . . . the spirit of our people, and keep alive their attention. Do not be too severe upon their errors, but reclaim them by enlightening them.” —Thomas Jefferson, 1787
Words to live by. Thank you, Mr. Jefferson.
