If you voted Democratic to raise taxes because you believe the government needs to get out of debt, yet you didn't send in more money than was required last year, are you a hypocrite? Or do you want everyone to do the same before you did it?
If you say you care about other people, yet you have more than you need while others are starving, are you a hypocrite?
The only people who are not hypocrites are those who say they don't give a warm fuzzy crap about anyone except themselves and those who affect them, and/or that they will help others only when it is comfortable for them. Are these "non-hypocrites" the people who we should idolize? I think not.
