I stumbled upon this on the internet while I was looking for ideas of questions to post today. I am in a debate mood, but I think I suck at it. LOL Anyhow, take a look at this........Totally made my jaw drop!
It is time to elect the world leader, and yours is the deciding vote. Here are the facts about the three leading candidates:
Candidate A: He associates with crooked politicians, and consults with astrologers. He's had two mistresses. He also chain smokes and drinks up to ten Martinis a day.
Candidate B: He was ejected from office twice, sleeps until noon, used opium in college and drinks a large amounts of whisky every evening.
Candidate C: He is a decorated war hero. He's a vegetarian, doesn't smoke, drinks an occasional beer and hasn't had any extra-marital affairs.
Candidate A is Franklin D Roosevelt
Candidate B is Winston Churchill
Candidate C is Adolph Hitler
We all tend to make snap decisions in assessing whether something is right or wrong, before seeking the full story. The need to examine what really lies beneath the surface when judging good and bad will become increasingly important as ethics and ethical issues become genuinely popular mainstream concerns.
Powerful organisations, politicians and the media are very clever at 'spinning' and distorting information so as to control public opinion. Judging important matters such as ethics on the surface is no basis for proper judgement, moreover we make it very easy for those who seek to deceive and exploit us when we fail to question and examine things properly before deciding.Answer Question

I would also like politicians to wear shock collars that would zap them every time they told a lie! [maggie]
I choked on my tea when I read that!!! I am pretty sure the collars would short out within an hour or two.
I've seen those facts before and always found them interesting. While I don't approve of cheating, I would be more likely to vote for the first two (w/o knowing who they were in history) because they DON'T sound so uptight that a piece of coal would turn into a diamond in a very short time if shoved up their rears (thanks Ferris!) unlike the third choice. I definitely wouldn't trust the third choice.
