As someone who pays the higher range of taxes in this country, I DEMAND that YOU make a decision based on the facts/evidence presented and what will be good for this country in the long term. Not just for few who has been amassing wealth and power/influence thru political connections and machinations with the known (although unbeknownst to the gullible hoi polloi) political butterflies. Else, you're nothing but political prostitutes corner jacking.
Please remember, that your decision today will have repercussions to many aspects of our nation not just political.
Lastly, allow me to quote Friedrich Nietzsche (as translated):
The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.
A strong and well-constituted man digests his experiences (deeds and misdeeds all included) just as he digests his meats, even when he has some tough morsels to swallow.
He who is punished is never he who performed the deed. He is always the scapegoat.
