Yes, faith. That's what an election is really all about. You hold your nose, and pull a lever or punch a card or screen and hope you've made the best decision and that enough people agree with you to overwhelm any attempts to corrupt the vote.
I'm a skeptic, but I'm no cynic. I have faith in the goodness of heart of the American people, red and blue, to want to do what's right for the country.
I just wish so many of them weren't so blind.
