PEOPLE ARE WAKING UP TO THE TRUTH !!!

Or are they?

The truth is that there is a battle going on for your mind and, especially in a US election year, it’s a very unequal battle where you are up against people with vast knowledge of how to manipulate people’s emotions, natural suspicions and beliefs.
