Of Sheep and Men

Why? He asked himself for the thousandth's time do the polls show this election so close? After eight years of misrule, lies, countless deaths, economic disaster the list could go on. Why are so many people still willing to listen to the lies, distortions, diversions and sheer nonsense of the ruling party?
He was thinking this while watching an old movie on the Movie Classics channel. There had been numerous political commercials that were ruining any enjoyment of watching Yul Brenner, Steve McQueen, James Coburn, Robert Vaughn and Charles Bronson in The Magnificent Seven. Finally the break was over and there was Eli Wallach talking to Yul Brenner explaining why he could come to the village and steal all their food.
"If God didn't want them to be sheared, he wouldn't have made them sheep."
