Stop it. Please.

Democrats. Republicans. RINOs. Liberals. “Conservatives.” Left wing. Right wing . . . come on. These are all myths at an individual level. Characteristics from every label can be found in anyone, especially those in power. The short message is – stop generalizing.

Judge people, politicians, leaders, etc. by their actions. Their actions are inconsistent with their alleged political beliefs.We are the grossest of hypocrites, and we ought to be. Because that is normal.

If you profess a belief try living it.

You’ll fail.

All your life.

Other people have extremely high standards for others, and very low standards for themselves. It’s a “do as I say, not as I do” kind of world. So stop your labeling. Stop your generalizing. Stop your hating. You are just as bad.

 Judge not, that ye be not judged.

 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?

 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye. (Matthew 7:1 – 5, KJV, 2013)

See? Even the ignorant, ancient savages were wiser than we every day folks.
