Conspiracy nuts running for office

It’s scary to think that more and more conspiracy nuts are running for office – and are being taken seriously. We’ve already got enough of them in office around the country.

Meet Cindy Lake. She’s running for county commissioner in Nevada. Her goal is to defund the federal government… apparently these idiots think Somalia is a society worth emulating.

But her views are also informed by a healthy (I use the term facetiously) dose of conspiracy theories… like fluoride in the water and chemtrails. And she doesn’t have time for your evil “science” talk. Who needs proof and science when it comes to believing conspiracy theories?

An audience member took the microphone and, gesturing toward the sky, warned that the greatest public health hazard came from chemtrails.

“Who’s polluting the county? How do we stop it? I don’t know,” the man said. “But they’re doing it all over the world, this geo-engineering. For who? What are they trying to do to the human species?”

The moderator tugged his leather jacket, and the video was edited at that point and then resumed as the man walked away from the microphone and took a seat.

“I do think an investigation has to be undertaken by the county commission and find out exactly what our role is there,” Lake said, without specifying how the investigation would be conducted or funded. “I don’t know who’s doing it; it’s a secret operation. As far as chemtrails go, I don’t want to be poisoned as much as anybody else, so I would vote no.”

[…] “I’m not 100 percent sure what’s being sprayed up there, and why, if anybody was spraying us — aren’t they spraying themselves, too?” Lake said. “I do think that there’s some validity to it. I don’t have the science to prove it, but as with drones, I think things can be used for the good and for the bad.”

“Unfortunately, the government, when they are given any kind of tool, tend to use it against the citizens to control us, so my perspective is, I wouldn’t discount it without further investigation because there is some proof to (it), from what I understand in my research,” she added.
