Hypocrisy is making me Bananas

This video really sums up a lot of how I've been feeling since the announcement of Gov. Palin as McCain's running mate.

I'm an Obama girl but I have nothing personally against Gov. Palin, or McCain, or Republicans in general for that matter. But I found myself MIGHTLY annoyed at the sound bites and response I heard post Palin announcement. Are you kidding me? Do they think we're completely stupid? The Hypocrisy of it makes me nuts. John Stewart summed it up awesomely with some tasty clips of Mr. Rove, et al.

I don't care how you vote but let's please call people out on this ridiculousness.

Hey Lezlee...my whole issue with this election is the fact that I find neither candidate to be an appealling choice. how do we live in a country of billions of people and come up with no decent candidates?

It is a sad day, when people who purport themselves to be so righteous support an agenda with a platform built on abortion, gay rights, and weakening our internal security-and the deterioration of the family unit.

If you honestly support Obama, then you need to quit pretending you support the gospel of Jesus Christ--as your are living in a fantasy world without the reality of actual firm righteous convictions. You may think you are being open-minded and progressive, but all you you do is make excuses why you don't have a testimony of the prophet of the Living God.

I'm sure you will dismiss this post as another radical attack. However, right is right--truth is truth and never changes--and even if you put lipstick on it, it is still a pig.

I would suggest you spend your time pondering whether or not you really believe the gospel to be true or not. From your negative spirit and your willingness to play the victim when someone disagrees with your erroneous point of view, I would guess that you are not on the road to apostasy......you're already there, ready to drag others down with you.

Your children deserve better, but I am sure they have already adopted your ambivalent and negative attitude. Agency does not give us the right to interpret the affairs of the world for our own benefit or to assuage those principles we deem difficult. You are not the smartest person in the universe (quite a shock I am sure). Your opinion does not connote truth and morality.

You definitely need to be admonished to be a single-minded moral person, and not someone who is tossed about with every wind of doctrine. You are on the wrong path and without repentance and the ability to listen to the spirit, you will never understand the righteousness and blessings the Lord has in store for you.

Read the scriptures, for in them you will find eternal life, a knowledge and testimony of the Savior, and the ability to understand the inanity of your current path.

No doubt you will dismiss this as another wild and crazy zealot. And you couldn't be further from the truth. You have gathered around you other disaffected souls who are as unhappy in life as you appear to be. Life doesn't have to be that way.

Whatever your assessment of this comment, I hope you will, indeed, understand there are people who agonize over the fact you have left the path and will rejoice when you find it again. Humility is the key.

We love you and wish the best for you. Listen to the still small voice and you will understand the truth of what I say.

May God bless you and your family.
