"During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act." (George Orwell)

I've posted some negative things about Sarah Palin on my Episcoveg blog, because they were motivated by her reputation pertaining to hunting, and support for aerial hunting of wolves. But I don't want that blog to become too negative, or too political/partisan.

But since this is my personal rant blog, I feel it is my duty as an American and as a Christian, to post things that bother me about the current presidential campaign, which is based on deception and distraction from the issues.

I'm tired of the lies. And I don't want the future of this country decided, based on lies. I also don't presume to know the truth, when I hear things. But when I hear McCain contradicting himself, and some of the other things I've seen that seem compelling, I feel like it's time to speak out (even if I only get one visitor every few months on this blog, which I've told less than a handful of people about).

Here are a few videos I found on YouTube tonight:

John McCain's ads are LIES. Here's the video proof.

McCain's Mansions

Once to every man and nation, comes the moment to decide,
In the strife of truth with falsehood, for the good or evil side;
Some great cause, some great decision, offering each the bloom or blight,
And the choice goes by forever, ’twixt that darkness and that light.

Then to side with truth is noble, when we share her wretched crust,
Ere her cause bring fame and profit, and ’tis prosperous to be just;
Then it is the brave man chooses while the coward stands aside,
Till the multitude make virtue of the faith they had denied.

By the light of burning martyrs, Christ, Thy bleeding feet we track,
Toiling up new Calv’ries ever with the cross that turns not back;
New occasions teach new duties, time makes ancient good uncouth,
They must upward still and onward, who would keep abreast of truth.

Though the cause of evil prosper, yet the truth alone is strong;
Though her portion be the scaffold, and upon the throne be wrong;
Yet that scaffold sways the future, and behind the dim unknown,
Standeth God within the shadow, keeping watch above His own.
