America: From freedom to fascism A must watch - Aaron Russo takes
things way further than Michael Moore and proves that the there is nothing in
the tax code that says you have to pay tax on your labor. Revealing how the

money from thin air. Amazing and substantiated film about the decline of
political honesty.

I dont know how much more plain I can make it...truther sites ask readers the register and to vote for truther stories posted on nutscape....

Truther sites have found nutscape to be fertile ground for recruitment into their movement (and sell more books and DvD's)....

On a positive note:

There has been some positive action on sock puppet voting by one of the navagators when notified....there may yet be hope...

On a negative note:

It has come to my attention that there has been a flurry of bannings on known conservatives...and thus..every post they have ever made...

One can only hope that these bannings are soley for violations of nutscape terms of service ...but without the abilty to review said can one really know?

I hope this isnt a concerted effort to shade the leanings of posted comments in order to influence casual readers less than a week before the mid term elections...

Basicly..without knowing who banned these members....or what they were banned can only guess....

**update....Lead admin "gets it"

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We have to figure out the best way to broach dealing with this. I'll get back to you after we decided the best way.

There is hope yet...**
