Re: “Bilderberg conspiracies have become a handicap for the Liberty Movement

Interesting comments. There is definitely something to learn from this thread. I am among those who believe that truth is truth and what some people call conspiracies, others including myself consider just fact. The term "conspiracy theorist" promotes the notion that those who support a controversial view have no evidence upon which to stand and that what they proclaim is mere "theory". This is incorrect. We should always communicate the truth and exercise our inalienable 1st amendment rights we are fighting for wisely no matter how much people reject it and especially for issues and matters of importance. Let me explain.

When I was working for the Ron Paul campaign we were taught to avoid divisive issues, because they would not result to political success. This is true to some extent, but only temporarily. For a time, the truth is easier to reject while its facts blossom to understanding, but once Americans understand, they greatly respect people who are honest, open and sincere, even if the message is hard to swallow. The challenge we all need to work on is how to teach the truth in a manner that is easier to understand and accept, but not diluting, removing, or avoiding the facts. It's as true about the Federal Reserve as it is about Obama's birth certificate. Don't ignore either, but patiently and carefully provide sources and information that is closer to the source to build credibility and confidence in those who trust in your message.

How, what and when we teach people, depends on where they are in their current understanding. If they are just now having their mind opened, then going straight into the reasons for something unusual such as "Osama Bin Laden was not killed by Obama", has the ability to shock people into unbelief. The order that information is presented is as important as the message itself, because if you teach the credible for a while, then when you begin to explain what seems incredible, people are more willing to take you seriously. It's the differences between serving somebody delicious cake on a nice plate vs. smashing the cake in their face. It's the same cake in both cases, but delivery matters. I hope that makes sense! :-)
