Review for Truthout, Sacramento, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Like many people out there and before us, my eyes have been closed to what has actually been going on around us and how the government conducts itself in secrecy and treats the citizens as potential enemys and i will admit that the reason I didnt know about our corrupt foriegn policy and the truth in afganistan and iraq because we never really saw it on mainstream media now did we? It wasnt till 4-5 years I actually started looking for other sources on the internet because I was tired of the nonsense the mainstream media was reporting on , things to keep us entertained like , the president got a new dog or 24 hour coverage of anna nicloe smith dying and my favorite has been every network channel pander to the a drug addict like charlie sheen and reward his behaviour by paying him money to do the interviews in the first place. So my quest for good independent news sources continued where they would report / write articles based on actual fact , non-partisan opinions and I believe I found it a year ago with Truthout and along with multiple other good independent sites. I would say literally everything I've read from you guys has been outstanding and well written. Truthout also has a wide range of topics they discuss like shady politics , drug wars , iraq/afganistan/yemen/pakistan and now libiyan wars and the reason I think I kinda have some what of a grasp on whats going on in the world is because sites like Truthout made it possible. Stay Independent my friends.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Everyday life . I look at everything differently now and that life is to short and precious and we should not waste it on killing , stealing or hurting one another but further advance as a human race and try and take everyone out of poverty and give everyone the basic necessity's to live and be free. No one is better than one person.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would maybe hold actual meetings/open forums and hold discussions on ways we could help or fix some things in the country or the world. There isnt a voice for people that are non-partisan and independent , we are cast aside because we wont conform to any of the gangs of Washington D.C. I would like to discuss things with others like myself and or who have the same goals in mind. Keep up the great work!
