Let’s say in 2012, however weird it might seem, and however unlikely it actually is, two presidential candidates come out on top and it has become clear one or the other of them will become the president. It is also clear that they are drawing relatively equal support, and the one who wins will depends upon who gets more of his supporters out to vote.
Candidate A is Muslim. He has made it clear that he will work for an ethical revolution in the United States by bringing to it Islamic law. He has said the first thing he will do, and work non-stop until he has accomplished this task, is to work to find a way to end abortion in the United States. It’s very clear he is very passionate on the subject, and his statements are more than empty rhetoric. He has a plan and has outlined how he could accomplish the task, and it looks like it will work.
Candidate B is a Methodist. On most issues, he is very similar to Jimmy Carter. One of the things he wants to work on is the image of the United States, so that its allies will be proud to work with the United States once again. But he is also rather supportive of abortion rights, and Planned Parenthood is one of his greatest supporters.
Who would you vote for — and why?
