How would Buddha vote?
It would seem he would be ambivalent about government-paid health care, unions, foreign policy, state’s rights, the legalization of marijuana or government spending. It would seem he would oppose income tax – as well as government spending on anything. And he would favor personal privacy, right? However, he would be in favor of protecting the planet, wouldn’t he? Or would he think that we are trying to influence matters beyond our control – and not worthy of our attention?
