The United States invaded Iraq to prevent Saddam Hussein from using weapons of mass destruction; but Saddam Hussein had no WMD. The Bush regime continues to tell Americans that the economy is healthy; but more people than ever are out of work or barely making ends meet. The United States is seeking to spread freedom around the world; but Americans are among the most tightly regulated and controlled people in the world. According to some experts, fluoride prevents tooth decay; others say fluoride hurts your teeth. It continues endlessly.

But how do you know any of it is true? How do you know that what you are reading in newspapers or magazines, hearing on radio, or watching on television is really happening? How do you know that the results of so-called "official" polls are true or even accurate?

We are told that we have terrible problems with crime, drugs, immigration, etc. But how do you know any of it is true?

In this commentary, Brent Johnson shows how Americans have become gullible and complaisant, believing just about anything that the government officially says. Brent brilliantly explains the difference between what you BELIEVE and what you KNOW.

With insight and clarity, Brent invites all people - whenever they are told about some event or occurrence in the world - to ask themselves, 'how do I know that it's true?' You may discover what it means to be an American. You may discover what it means to be free.
