What You Thought Was Your Government is lying to you. Uh-huh.
Oh, and you know what else?
What You Thought Was Your Government is also spying on you. Seriously, dude.
And, for those of you who happen to go abroad and exercise your First Amendment rights in ways that What You Thought Was Your Government may not approve, well ...
What You Thought Was Your Government is killing you, too. For real, man.
Now, you have to ask yourself, why on earth would What You Thought Was Your Government be lying to you? What did you do to be lied to?
And, stranger still, why would What You Thought Was Your Government be spying on you? After all, what the hell did you do to be spied on?
And, most chillingly of all, why would What You Thought Was Your Government be killing you without a trial, a hint of due process, or so much as a fart in the direction of the Bill of Rights? KILLING. YOU.
Well, I'm glad you're finally asking these long overdue questions. I'm glad that you're finally waking up. I'm glad that you are suddenly curious. Because it's about damned time!
But I don't think you're going to like the answers. And you probably should have woken up a lot sooner than you did.
Because the answers are all the same: THIS. IS. NOT. YOUR. GOVERNMENT!!!!! This is THEIR GOVERNMENT, the government of those who now seek to lie to you, to spy on you, and to kill you.
Wake up, you reality tv-addicted nation of sheep! Wake the hell up! Look at what is being done in your name! Look at what is being done TO you, in your name!
What You Thought Was Your Government has been lying to people and spying on people and killing people for years and years and years. For generations even. But that was being done to Other People. To People Outside Your Nation's Borders. To foreigners. People you didn't have to think twice about. Because What You Thought Was Your Government could do all that hard thinking for you.
