    American voters are now faced with two major political parties to vote for the candidates of: one of the parties favors torture; the other favors planetary death squads. Here’s the difference: one party favors capture in order to be able to torture; the other doesn’t. Quite a choice. I’ll have to go with the capture party… no wait, the kill party… no wait, capture… no wait, kill. Capture. Kill…… Sorry: call me undecided.
