Cheer up and Vote

To those thus afflicted I say, "Cheer up and vote." Politics is always a sad compromise. If you're waiting for the perfect political regime and the perfect political candidate before you vote, you're expecting divine things from the merely human. This is a fallen world. There never has been a perfect political regime; there never will be. America is no exception. But since no one is ever born into a perfect regime, then we shall be judged only by how well we acted amid whatever imperfections fall to our historical lot. We shall therefore be judged, in part, on our voting record. So come, friends, let us reason together, and see things from the proper perspective.

Follow Benjamin Wiker as he explains the Catholic approach to the political process.

I wouldn't mind a return to polity, myself. The Polity Party: now there's an idea!
