On the one hand, Evil Liberal Al Gore wants to institute “fertility management” against the poor, as rich people so often do. On the other hand, Good Libertarian Rand Paul wants to institute fertility management against the poor, as rich people so often do. The reason Gore is evil is because he wants to do it for Mother Earth. The reason Paul is good is because Paul wants to do it for Mammon. Nobody asks the poor what they think because if they mattered, they’d be rich–and would therefore matter.

My brethren, show no partiality as you hold the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory. For if a man with gold rings and in fine clothing comes into your assembly, and a poor man in shabby clothing also comes in, and you pay attention to the one who wears the fine clothing and say, “Have a seat here, please,” while you say to the poor man, “Stand there,” or, “Sit at my feet,” have you not made distinctions among yourselves, and become judges with evil thoughts? Listen, my beloved brethren. Has not God chosen those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which he has promised to those who love him? But you have dishonored the poor man. Is it not the rich who oppress you, is it not they who drag you into court? Is it not they who blaspheme that honorable name which was invoked over you? (James 2:1-7)
