    of truth, it can take repeating and repeating before it finally sinks in.

    Our people have been brainwashed into distrusting their own government for decades.

    It's going to take a concerted, continuous effort to get the truth through.

    Would you mind if I shared what you said on FB? If you do, not to worry.
