Your comments were extraordinarily insightful and appreciated. For me, Waco was the turning point. Having seen the lies propaganda, and violence FedGov was willing to employ up close and personal, I realized that this really wasn't the country I'd grown up loving as a child and young man, and that it probably had not been since before my lifetime.
I've learned that when anything really big happens, to watch for the 'tells' that always seem to accompany these events. One of many in the OKC event was that the governor of the state "found" the axle with the serial number that linked it to the truck. We're supposed to just accept whatever FedGov feeds us without question no matter how improbable what they are telling is us. If you express skepticism or cognitive dissonance with what you are being asked to swallow, you're ridiculed as a nutjob.
IMO, at best, OKC was an example of an FBI sting operation gone horribly wrong. At worst it was a case of domestic terrorism for partisan political gain. Either is a pretty damning indictment of the state of our current political system.
Now, lest one be tempted to express some kind of partisan indignation towards democrats concerning the coverup of what actually occurred at OKC, it would be wise to keep in mind that President Bush had 8 years to Bring the facts to light, and perpetrators to justice, yet he did nothing. FedGov and the political class always protect their own. Further, I would ask your attention to be brought briefly back to the days immediately following 9/11, and recall that FedGov reported discovering Mohammed Atta's passport amongst the debris in the towers just days if not hours (I can't recall the exact timeline), after the attack. Of course, to even mention such a thing means you're one of the loony 'truthers', not that you're just expressing an honest 'WTF?' about insanely improbable events.
Sadly, we've become pre-programmed obedient sheep, that can't question the actions and motivations of those who hold an inordinate amount of power over us, largely because if we really were to admit to ourselves exactly how things truly are, we'd have to rethink our pledge of allegiance and perhaps many other things.

Can’t have anyone rethinking their loyalties, can we? Might raise some new questions and put somebody in prison.
