I suppose by now I can call myself an online journalist of sorts. I take information from various sources, then research each source and try to find the truth between the articles.
I try to be fair and balanced. There are too many blog sites with crazy lunatic theories with many exclamation points! AND CAPITAL LETTERS, so emphasize their theories. Having studied English literature, I know that this does not appeal to people, and often turns them away.
People want to know what’s really going on, and many see that the media is not telling the whole truth, and even worse, is often completely bias to one political affiliation or another.
I often joke that CNN is the Communist News Network, and FOX stands for Fascism Obsessed Xenophobes. One network is extremely liberal, and the other extremely conservative. I think that certain news anchors do a better job than others, but the bias is so thick it is hard to swallow.
So back to the online community; which now includes Glenn Beck. I agree with many of the things that Glenn says, but sometimes he loses me. I can’t understand why he stands up for liberty and yet will not endorse Ron Paul. I think it has something to do with Israel and his religious beliefs. Personally I put freedom above all else and therefore put this country first.
And then you have infowars.com with Alex Jones. I like listening to him, he keeps me well informed on draconian laws and how the police state is taking over. But he often comes across as a loon also because he is so serious all the time, and makes it look like the boogie man is hiding around the corner.
Then you have whatreallyhappened.com which I love, but sometimes the points of view are somewhat socialist. It’s hard to tell, and there is so much misinformation in the world that it would be easy to get lumped into one group of people or another.
Let me just point out that the last few paragraphs are speculation, and should not be treated as fact. It is a Sunday afternoon, and I’m keeping things quite mellow.
As for bias; I am bias. I am bias toward liberty. I am bias toward freedom. I am bias in these areas because I believe everyone has a right to make a life for themselves, whether it turns out the way they want it to or not, or whether they make good or bad decisions.
The only reason I have become political lately and endorsed Ron Paul is because he is the first and only candidate I have ever seen that endorses liberty, who protects the constitution, who votes to limit taxes and reduce taxes, and who has the best interests of all people at heart. I see that this country is at a crossroads, and it is my duty to help defend the constitution.
I have shown this video a few times now, and it sends shivers down my spine every time I see it. This man, this actor and comedian, spent an entire movie making fun of Adolf Hitler, and at the very end he stood up on the podium of liberty and gave one of the most bone chilling speeches I have ever heard. His words are as powerful and meaningful today as they were back then. In 1940 Hitler had taken over the entire continent of Europe, and collectivism had swept the world, and yet Charlie Chaplin stood up and exclaimed that man was born free and that liberty will never perish:
So long as I have air in my lungs and a keyboard at my fingertips, I will always expose the truth; I will always fight for freedom, because it is the only thing worth fighting for; because without it; we have nothing.
I hope you enjoy this site, I hope you learn from it. I do my best to add as many links as possible so that you can do your own research. There is nothing worse than blindly listening to one person and not figuring out things for yourself.
Abundant Truth is all about exposing the truth and showing an abundance of it. The world will be a better place when people learn the truth and become more tolerant, and like I always say; that starts with the individual. And in that case I am bias.
