Goodness - know the truth and it will set you free. Ignore what is right before you and your life will be changed forever. You have the power to make a difference - all it takes is the will to listen and understand what is just common sense and simple logic.
Understand, nothing is free, ever - somewhere, somehow, someone has to pay the bill. When you are promised something for three decades and you never get it, it's way past time to understand the system and change course.
