The difference between Campaigning and Voting

March 29th, 2012 Go to comments

While walking down the street one day a ‘Member of Parliament’ is
tragically hit by a truck and dies.

His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.

‘Welcome to heaven,’ says St. Peter. ‘Before you settle in, it seems there
is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so
we’re not sure what to do with you.’

‘No problem, just let me in,’ says the man.

‘Well, I’d like to, but I have orders from higher up. What we’ll do is have
you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can choose where to
spend eternity.’

‘Really, I’ve made up my mind. I want to be in heaven,’ says the MP.

‘I’m sorry, but we have our rules.’

And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down,

down to hell. The do ors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green
golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are
all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him.

Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake
his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at
the expense of the people.

They play a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and
champagne.

Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly & nice guy who has
a good time dancing and telling jokes. They are having such a good time that

before he realizes it, it is time to go.

Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises…

The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens on heaven where St. Peter
is waiting for him.

‘Now it’s time to visit heaven.’

So, 24 hours pass with the MP joining a group of contented souls moving from

cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time and,
before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns.

‘Well, then, you’ve spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now choose
your eternity.’

The MP reflects for a minute, then he answers: ‘Well, I would never have
said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be
better off in hell.’

So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to
hell.

Now the doors of the elevator open and he’s in the middle of a barren land
covered with waste and garbage.

He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting
it in black bags as more trash falls from above.

The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulder. ‘I don’t
understand,’ stammers the MP. ‘Yesterday I was here and there was a golf
course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and caviar, drank champagne, and
danced and had a great time. Now there’s just a wasteland full of garbage
and my friends look miserable.

What happened?’

The devil looks at him, smiles and says, ‘Yesterday we were campaigning.. .

Today you voted.’
