Vote Left or Right?

Both political parties ...
want their candidates elected in November. In trying to discern how to choose my thoughts turn to the story in the old testament of Solomon presented with two women fighting over custody of one infant, each claiming it was hers. 1 Kings 3:16-28. Solomon uncovered their true feelings and relationship to the child by suggesting the baby be sawn in half. Each woman receiving part of the child. With this proposal the true agendas of actual mother and the pretender were exposed. The true mother begged that the whole child be given to her rival. If we view our nation as the baby and the two contending parties as the "mothers,
" which one would you feel has the better "claim", the best intentions?
