It goes without saying that the Simpsons show leans left when it covers politics. It doesn’t bother me, I’ve come to expect it from television. But what I find so sad is that there are voters out there who think in a similar fashion to Homer in this clip. Regardless of which candidate for whom they eventually cast their ballot, their decision process is based almost exclusively on superficial extreme parodies of the candidates themselves. I talk to these kinds of people all the time, they do exist, and they’re allowed to vote.
I have always believed that politics and religion are the two areas which [should] hold the most significance in your life. What you believe about religion and politics will usually be what shapes who you are the most.
So even though Homer eventually voted for the right person, his reasoning for doing so lacks a certain sophistication. Take some time and think about the candidate you’ll vote for. Consider what it is about that person that makes them deserving of your vote.
Food for thought: God is a Republican: (Ecclesiastes 10:2) — A wise man’s heart directs him toward the right, but the foolish man’s heart directs him toward the left. Just sayin’
