Hypocrisy and cognitive dissonance is a huge, huge problem. Sadly, you can find it in a lot of political movements today. People will blindly support "liberal" ideas and agendas without so much as a second thought, and the same for "conservative" values. Some people (myself included) were so happy to get Obama elected after the garbage fire that was George W. Bush's presidency, that we didn't really hold him accountable for all the drone bombings, not doing more to preserve the democratic majority we held in senate and congress, or any of his other promises of "change." Yeah, I remember those first fliers with his face on it!
