Do Americans believe their “leaders” are telling them the truth?

I am a U. S. citizen and recently found myself with an opportunity to here an honest opinion about what people from outside of our country think of us. The general opinion is that we know that our government is corrupt and does horrible things, but we would rather ignore those things and are okay with them as long as we are unable to see any of it. Out of sight, out of mind I suppose.

Some people were shocked at this idea that we would be do something like that, but I’m not entirely sure that they didn’t hit the nail right on the head. On the other hand, an organized and wealthy community of corrupt people would have invested a significant amount of resources into researching how to maintain their authoritative position in this world.

I can say first hand that these people are brilliant in their ability to control what the masses believe about the world through the media and the extreme censorship that takes place. They have created a nation of easily distracted and frightened people who actually believe that their abuser is actually their protector.
