humanism.

Assuming that you somehow *have* to vote for the cruelty and arrogance of Mitt Romney because you have a particular distaste for the specific cruelty and arrogance of Barack Obama is a false dichotomy and I hope that we will all seriously examine our approach to our country, our (respective) faiths, and our fellow man. Cruelty is cruelty, no matter what side of the aisle it's on, but you don't have to support it.

There is no such thing as a necessary evil.

The reason we have such awful politicians (and somehow even more terrible alternatives) is only because we voted for them. If you feel the need to vote, find someone you think is worth voting for. But don't settle for any flagrant disregard for human life and dignity because you've found a form of it incrementally more to your liking than what's currently in office.

Things don't have to be this way. They really, really don't. They only are because we allow them to be.
