I have this friend who lives in Los Angeles, in a deep Blue district. He doesn’t need to call his Congressmember about health care reform, because the Congressmember is already committed to voting yes.
So now he has a searing ethical dilemma: should he call the offices of fence-sitting Congressmembers, say that he is from their districts, give them a fake zip code, and tell them to vote yes?
What would Kant say? And what would LBJ do to him once he said it?
