I read the paper most days, listen to NPR in the car almost everyday, follow the news on-line most days, and watch TV news programs at least a couple of times each week. I've not heard this suggested by anyone else. Please tell me who the other people are who have expressed these concerns? More importantly, tell me upon what evidence is that claim based?
Ah, now you're changing the question DA. But that's ok, I'll play along. Of course it's POSSIBLE that there is an organized, clandestine group of powerful people that exert influence over our elected officials. It's also possible that Obama is, by day, our President, and by night, a superhero crime fighter. It's also possible that he's an alien with telepathic powers.
All of those things, and many more, are possible. But, unlike you, I don't believe that any of them are true, because I've not seen any evidence to convince me of that fact. You however, stated:
Am I the only person that is beginning to believe that our President is no more than a puppet, the face of something larger than himself, being controlled and orchestrated by, what I call, puppeteers?
So, I will pose the same two questions that I posed to you before:
1. What in the world would lead you to that absurd conclusion? Why do you think that he is no more than a puppet, the face of something larger than himself, being controlled and orchestrated by, what you call, puppeteers? In other words, what evidence led you to that conclusion? And, as I also asked;
2. What are the ultimate goals of this mysterious cabal that is really running America? And, once again, if you know, please provide the evidence you have relied on to uncover the goals of the puppeteers?
