Being Noble During a Gang Fight

Written by John (the other John).

In 2018 in the American State of Florida, a Constitutional Amendment known as the “Voting Rights Restoration for Felons Initiative” restored the right to vote to convicted felons. This initiative was not only supported by the ACLU (Anti-Christian Liberals Union), but also by the Christian Coalition of America. But more significantly, the public voted for this with 64.55% of the vote. As such, as of January 2019, an estimated 1.4 million felons became eligible to vote in Florida elections. (As a side note, Florida is a Conservative State [but evidently not too smart]). 
In the U.S., the President is not elected by a national election, but instead it is 50 separate State elections. Since 1968, Florida mostly voted for the Republican Presidential candidate. Also, generally, as Florida votes so does the nation (due to Florida having many electoral votes for the Electoral College). But with the ever occurring population-swap, the Republican vote is decreasing. So what effect will this Amendment allowing felons to vote have on elections? Well, of these estimated 1.4 million felons being eligible to vote, it is safe to say that the overwhelming majority of them will vote Democrat. And what effect will this have? As mentioned, due to Florida’s size, as Florida votes, so does America. 
So if from now to eternity there will only be Democrats as US Presidents, what political philosophy do you think future legislation and future case law will tilt towards? Yes, anti-Christian, anti-Capitalist liberal progressivism. So basically, these Republican voters in the name of altruism and good Christian values acted in a noble manner by joining Democrats in the felon-voting initiative; unfortunately, these good Samaritans fell into the trap of the Democrats by giving the Democrats an additional 1.4 million voters in Florida. 
This just shows, when you show up to a gang fight acting gentlemanly and noble whilst your enemy shows up carrying switchblades, the noble one will lose. Unfortunately, this idiotic vote by Floridians not only effects Florida, but it effects the entirety of the US and of Western civilization. This is another win for the bad guys, and another loss for the idiotic good guys.

This reminds me of the below fable from Aesop: 
The Farmer and the Snake (by Aesop)

One winter a farmer found a snake stiff and frozen with cold. He had compassion on it, and taking it up, placed it in his bosom.  The warmth quickly revived the Snake, and resuming its natural instincts, bit its benefactor, inflicting on him a mortal wound. "Oh," cried the farmer with his last breath, "I am rightly served for pitying a scoundrel."

The lesson: The greatest kindness will not bind the ungrateful.
