Conservatives are hypocrites!

Updated on November 15, 2009

Conservative politicians like Sara Palin are hypocrites

Conservative politicians like Sara Palin show hypocrisy in their Family Values platform. I have always voted republican but knew we were in trouble when, we choose a mother of 5 to run for a high political office. What kind of family values do we really have? Do our values end when we get desperate to win a campaign?

Family values used to mean 'family first'. According to the model given in the bible, a child is more precious than gold and we are to surround them with love and protection 24/7; teaching them morality, love and kindness through our words and ourĀ  own personal walk with God.

Christians are taught that although we are in this world; we are not OF this world. We are citizens of the Kingdom and live by His laws which are a much higher calling than the laws of this world. We put God and family first.

Public office is not a 9-5 job; that is, you are expected to work far more hours and are really never off the clock as a public servant. This would be difficult with one child let alone 5, one of who is a newborn and hasn't even had a chance to bond with mommy.

According to Levi Johnson, the unwed teens boyfriend, he spent more time with the family at the Governors mansion than Sarah Palin who was either seldom at home or locked in her study when she was.

So when I heard that MY conservative party was stooping so low as to pick a woman with 5 children, one a newborn and one an unwed teen mom, I just shook my head and abandoned them.

If her family continues to have problems, the blood will be on her hands as well as the Conservative Republican Party.

At least liberals don't pretend to be perfect with family values like conservatives. They are hypocrites and I hope they get themselves together before the next election!

      I agree,there is a lot to be embarassed about right now as a conservative. Big mouths like Rush make us look racist and Sara Palin makes up look like money hungry hipocrites. I think she will say anything to stay in front of the cameral and make money. I don't see anything in her that says Family first. Even the first lady's choice as a well educated women who chose to be a stay at home mom makes her look like the worse kind of feminist; a self centered one!We conservatives have a lot of work to do

      Good hub.

      It first I looked at your picture and this writing, and I say to myself, she got it right so young in your career. I then looked up your site and learned, that you must be doing something right at your age. Keep going.

      Exactly, Hillary and Pelosi don't put themselves out there as 'Conservatives'who put family first. They are who they are.

      This is a rather sweeping indictment on the conservatives. If you must criticize Palin, then you must also criticize Hillary, Pelosi and the many women democrats who are serving in leadership, government, or women in general, who work. Are you disappointed with the Republican's choice of a woman who happens to have 5 children, and who's family is not perfect?
