Best 25 Wisdom Quotes Ideas That Will Inspire 3

We are living out Orwell’s 1984, where our lying pig of a president tells us not to believe what we see and what we hear. We are daily bombarded with more half-truths and outright lies as he attempts to prop up his base and stay in control.

But in Gandhi’s words, “the truth is still the truth.” Never be afraid to speak out. Never be afraid to say the Emperor has no clothes. If we refuse to speak out the lying liar wins. Speak out. The truth is still the truth.

a lie is always a lie…

We have a pathological, lying pig in the White House who is unable to even spell truth, much less, practice it. His open attacks on our democratic principles and values never cease, and his greed and hubris knows absolutely no limits.

The danger is not that a majority believes or supports this racist whore monger. The danger is  the constant barrage of lies, the unrelenting attacks on the norms of decency, and the never-ending pressing of the legal limits of our society.

Over time we can become worn down and actually begin to accept all of this as “normal.” We do so, however, at our peril. This must never be allowed to happen. We have to remember that a lie is always a lie.

“A lie doesn’t become truth, wrong doesn’t become right, and evil doesn’t become good just because it is accepted by the majority.”

 

so blind with patriotism…

Same goes for loyalty to your religion. LDS no more. The policy is WRONG. Quotes. General conference. #ldsconf

Right is right. Wrong is wrong. And adults should know the difference.

None of us should be so blinded by patriotism that we knowingly accept lies over the truth. And none of us should wrap ourselves in the flag to protect criminals who commit treason.

Those that do, especially our leaders elected to represent us, are complicit in this treason. Every one of them should be prosecuted as traitors.

some wounds don’t bleed

These are timely words. As we approach next week’s election the rhetoric has been as vitriolic as I have ever experienced in a presidential election. Both sides would have us believe the other candidate is Lucifer incarnate.

The sad truth is that both candidates are flawed, even as we all are. Neither of these two candidates will ever make it to top of the most likable list. But, that’s not the issue.

At the end of the day it isn’t about likability, is it? On November 8th we must vote for the candidate that we feel will do the best job at leading our nation in the direction we think is best.

I plan on casting my ballot for the candidate with a lifetime record of public service, the one easily the most qualified and most experienced. I could not in good conscience ever vote for someone that uncontrollably spews hatred, racism, bigotry in every conversation. I want a leader with plans, not an egocentric ass with nauseatingly-repeated one liners telling us how much everyone adores him.

We must vote. We must vote our conscience. We must not be afraid to do what is right. Otherwise, the wounds we will inflict on our country are small compared with the wounds will will inflict on our own souls.
