Whether you envision them as some sort of shadow government or malicious chain gang just know that they are among us. Things aren't always as they seem and although this is seriously a grim topic to bring up it is always best to arm yourself with knowledge. You don't need an economist or scientific expert of any kind to tell you that there is something truly wrong in the world. And although I cannot speak for all the nations of the earth I base my judgements on the occurring events and questionable actions, past and present, of the leaders we blindly choose here in these United States of America.
The "illuminati" are among us, beware and take care.
