Truth Is My Religion
Just in case you were wondering – I am not the Arianna Huffington of the spiritual crowd. Or the Marianne Williamson for that matter. Although I do dearly adore both of these women, want to share my lunch with them at school, and be Best Friends Forever.
Politics bore me. To me politics is a bad religion the cult aspects of which totally creep me out.
There is a reality TV show on now about the Amish. An oxymoron if there ever was one as these people do not live in the real world. Nor do they pay taxes. Nor are they aren’t allowed to have fun or an adult beverage. This alone is enough for me to put them on the People And Things I Could Not Care Less About List.
I care more about Snooki and her new baby. No really, babies are something I easily care about because babies don’t lie. And they are so cute!
Politicians lie and there is nothing cute about it. They actually play the only game I know of other than Balderdash where telling the best lie can make you a winner.
In order for these folks to climb up the ladder they must give away pieces of themselves along the way. A piece here, a piece there, pieces pieces everywhere. It doesn’t matter which side of the fence they are on. Once they are in the position of running for office they are already 90% lost.
Now, Pro Smart-Ass that I am, I may take a pot shot or two at someone in government office whom I feel is an insufferable twit. But that’s because that person is an insufferable twit! He would be said twit IMMHO if he were the assistant manager at Walgreens, running for POTUS, or coaching my nephew’s football team. A twit is as a twit does. Sometimes they are just harder to recognize if they have a lot of money and wear a nice suit.
Ya know what the tell is? Go on guess. I know you know. OK …
The tell is.
The guy that is lying is a twit.
The guy that is lying and trying to make you believe his okidoke while hiding behind a movie star smile and a I’m-just-like-you-I-go-to-church-and-live-in-fear-of-everything-and-everyone-everyday-of-my-life-glow is an Insufferable Twit. Once they parade their silly wives who support them and their poor unsuspecting children who love them on stage as part of the Insufferable Twit Show I could never take that person seriously. Much less vote for them!
Here’s the thing.
As I say.
Politics is a bad religion.
Want to know of a good religion? One you can lean on, get your children involved in, and never let go of even if you are never elected as County Dog Catcher? I mean it isn’t the only religion of course. It isn’t a cult where only what we believe is right and everyone else is wrong and going to hell or Altoona, PA. ( Which is the very same thing if you know Altoona. ) It is however a good religion.
That religion is my religion and I have said this a thousand times before.
My religion is The Truth.
The Truth, and everyone is invited to the party. Everyone. Rich, poor, and silly as you wanna be.
How do you know the Truth from a Lie? Want to know what the tell is?
The Truth is Love.
If it doesn’t sound like Love, feel like Love, look like Love and it is not Loving?
Well then, it is not The Truth. It is a Lie. A bold faced lie.
And Honey, let me tell ya. Mama will not be voting for anyone involved in that religion any time soon.
