I voted for Edwin Edwards over the Grand Dragon. Was Duke lying? Not as much as Edwards
Some, but there's a percentage that are real Christians, or at least have Christian ethics. So without knowing anything else there's a greater chance that if the Christian gets elected he will have ethics i like. Game theory decision making would point to the Christian as the optimum decision - between a self proclaimed Christian and an Athiest.
If Trump said he was the anti-Christ i wouldn't vote for him. If Biden proclaimed to be a Christian and Trump an Athiest i'd vote for Trump. I have tons of other info to factor in.
surely we would vote for the lying capitalist over the honest communist.
my ethical question here is how much lying and general skullduggery are we gonna accept to get what we want, if we believe what we want is the best for almost everyone.
like lets imagine that pinochet had killed all those artists and socialists and intellectuals, and it turns out those fuckers he killed were really communists who were well-meanimng but didnt understand what you and i do about communism (that is does not venerate the worker but in practice is ALWAYS single party authoritariaism for th well connected that fucks everyone else).
so lets say that pinochet kills al the communists, leaving only the chicago-school economists and it sets the economy of chile ablaze and turns it from bascially bolivia into singapore and prosperity for 100 years, drastically increasing quality oflife for everyone and their grandchildren.
how ok would be to take power by force with lies and violence in that case? if you are saving a society from becoming cambodia under pol pot. i dunno.
hmmmm, imo you have to abide by the law....lying is not against the law - mostly. Law and order, as Trumpster tweets. If the majority wants a communist country, i'll be looking to hide my private property and leave. Kind of like a lot of smart folks did in Venezuela.
My new favorite word. Gonna use it all day at work tomorrow.
I think Biden claims to be Catholic, so does Crazy aunt Nancy. Both favor late term and even live birth abortion. Wonder how taht sits with the Vatican??
No need for a hypothetical. We nuked a few cities to set the world straight.
It's not against our law to nuke a nation at war with us. At least i dont think so.
