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.
"Rome is the mob. Conjure magic for them and they’ll be distracted. Take away their freedom and still they’ll roar. The beating heart of Rome is not the marble of the senate, it’s the sand of the coliseum. He’ll bring them death – and they will love him for it.” - Senator Gracchus (Gladiator)
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
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.
"If I take death into my life, acknowledge it, and face it squarely, I will free myself from the anxiety of death and the pettiness of life - and only then will I be free to become myself." ~ Martin Heidegger
