tell the truth, mark twain

In religion and politics people’s beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten at second-hand, and without examination, from authorities who have not themselves examined the questions at issue but have taken them at second-hand from other non-examiners, whose opinions about them were not worth a brass farthing.
– Autobiography of Mark Twain

 

No matter who you voted for, no matter how gutted or excited you are today, think for yourself. Ask questions, research, untangle the confusing facts and questions. Decide what you believe, not what your momma, church, or political party tells you to believe.
