    Considering that Obama is the greatest traitor in American history, I would be more than happy to let anyone kill him, and I would save my child.

    However, if Ron Paul or some equally qualified and dedicated person was President, I would put my country first and save the President.

    This is a ridiculous question, imo, in that's it's another one of those "save X or your child" kind of hypothetical.

    My future child, which would be my loved one, is of far more importance.

    God forbid someone has to make this decision irl.

    LOL the title for this thread is ridiculous.

    Subtract one from the save the president votes. I didn't read the name of the poll, just the name of the thread. I wouldn't think twice if it meant saving my child.
