These were the first news headlines I saw this morning:
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. - Democratic presidential rivals Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama accused each other of repeatedly and deliberately distorting the truth for political gain Monday night in a highly personal, finger-wagging debate.
All I have to say is: IMAGINE THAT. It's just funny that while accusing the other they can't see that it applies to them also. I can't find one person running for elected office in our government that this doesn't apply to.
And as Americans we have had it drilled into us that to be "good" "responsible" Americans we have to participate in the political process by voting. I say....to be an honest person who desires better, how can I participate in this circus?
If honest representation is really important to us, I think the responsible course of action is to never vote for another politician who at best thinks, the ends justifies the means, or at worst, is just someone who doesn't care about the truth and is caught up in the trap created by the hunger for power and influence.
For myself, this will be the 2nd election that I will be sitting out of since I turned voting age. I cannot imagine participating again by voting if this is what I am offered as choices, unless I clearly hear within my spirit, that still small voice encouraging me to do so. I'M NOT HEARING THAT VOICE. I have found freedom from being manipulated by others using the "good citizen" argument. It's manipulative/controlling BS.
