I listened to a program on the internet talking about the popularity of Sarah Palin. When the people who like were asked what she stands for, the respondents were vague in their answers. When asked about what Palin would do on policies such as foreign policy, the respondents didn't have a clue. It's really sad that these people judged their love of Palin on peripheral qualities rather anything concrete or tangible.

This parallels what most people understand about ENDA, gay marriage, and transgender identity. Political correctness is the rule of the day rather than critical thinking. What concerns me is that if, for example, the country was taken over by some power that do not have our interests at heart most people would be shocked and appalled that it happened.

This post isn't about any political or religious affiliations. It's about how gullible people can be to unscrupulous politicians and leaders because they rather be told what to do rather than investigate what they are being sold. What's sadder is that I run into this every day and from people of all walks of life.

I make it a point to research what I read. After listening to this program today I'm making a more concerted effort to make sure the information is correct and accurate. Too many people are affected by the many lies, inaccuracies and lack of knowledge that's being pawned as fact. We transgender people have had some many lies told about us. It's about time that we go on the offensive and end all this nonsense.
