"If one candidate is trying to scare you, and the other's trying to get you to think; if one is appealing to your fears, and the other is appealing to your hopes - it seems to me you ought to vote for the person who wants you to think and hope."
There's no graver decision this year
And the choice now is perfectly clear.
When casting your vote,
Don't do it by rote
And please vote from your hope not your fear.
Yes, this limerick is really a chain
Which is something I mostly disdain
But pass on this note
To ten friends who vote
If you do then we all stand to gain

The carrot vs. the stick
