Here's the thing that I wonder: how much would the typical politician do in order to get a vote? Vader talks about throwing old people down shafts and Cobra Commander talks about snake pits on the moon. But don't politicians today promise things like keeping the murder of innocent babies in the womb legal? Just because something is common, it doesn't make it any less horrific. Some candidates were open to using torture on terrorist suspects, which is condemned by the Church. But I wonder how many of them really believe in their positions or if they are just saying what we want to hear.
I often don't know if I am being too optimistic or too cynical in politics.
Hat tip to "Blimpy" on the videos.
