Here is an important article to read by Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post that explain a leap of faith that is needed by the American Citizens.
K.I.S.S. - Keep It Simple Stupid and read this article...
This may be the classic "Catch 22," if you think the article is hogwash, then you are one of the hypochondriacs of the USA culture. If you believe the articles proposition, then the USA culture will think you are not to be trusted.
Thank you for reading this,
