There have been some interesting comments in The Herald about the presidential election. One man says I am a fool for voting for Obama. Well, I think he is a fool for voting for Romney, the billionaires' candidate. But maybe he is a billionaire and he voted for Romney to vote for his interests.
One woman says the nation was founded on Christian principles. As a Christian myself, I have never understood this. I wish for once that a person who says this would actually enumerate the Christian principles he/she is invoking. In addition, she seems to hint that election of the Christian, instead of the non-Christian, will lead to the end of our Christian principles. (Either Romney is a Christian, or I am, but I don't believe we can both be Christian, we are too different.)
The editor's comment pointed out that the House is still majority Republican. I believe the only reason this is true is the existence of gerrymandering. If we would amend the constitution to outlaw gerrymandering, the Republicans would once again have to appeal to the broad middle of the citizenry instead of to the extremists.
