US House Rep. Ron Paul says the CIA has has in effect carried out a “coup” against the US government, and the intelligence agency needs to be “taken out.” Speaking to an audience of like-minded libertarians at a Campaign for Liberty regional conference in Atlanta this past weekend, the Texas Republican said: There’s been a coup, have you heard? It’s the CIA coup. The CIA runs everything, they run the military. They’re the ones who are over there lobbing missiles and bombs on countries. … And of course the CIA is every bit as secretive as the Federal Reserve. … And yet think of the harm they have done since they were established [after] World War II. They are a government unto themselves. They’re in businesses, in drug businesses, they take out dictators … We need to take out the CIA. Paul’s comments, made last weekend, were met with a loud round of applause, but they didn’t gather attention until bloggers noticed a clip of the event at YouTube.

And the truth of this is…You Have! But not for any reason that you think you know, but rather for truths that are known yet are being kept hidden from you. Why are they being kept from you? The answer is simple, because if you knew the truth it is believed by your leaders that you could not function, and if you aren’t able to function you aren’t able to protect them. And how are you protecting them? Another simple answer; you are working, living and dying to support their futures, not your own!
