    While walking down the street one day a
    Philippine senator is tragically
    hit by a truck and dies. His soul
    arrives in heaven and is met by St.
    Peter at the entrance.

    "Welcome to heaven," says St. Peter.
    "Before you settle in, it seems
    there is a problem. We seldom see a high
    official around these parts,
    you see, so we're not sure what to do
    with you."

    "No problem, just let me in," says the man.

    "Well, I'd like to, but I have orders
    from higher up. What we'll do is
    have you spend one day in hell and one
    in heaven. Then you can choose
    where to spend eternity."

    "Really, I've made up my mind. I want to
    be in heaven," says the

    "I'm sorry, but we have our rules."

    And with that, St. Peter escorts him to
    the elevator and he goes down,
    down, down to hell. The doors open and
    he finds himself in the middle of
    a green golf course. In the distance is
    a clubhouse and standing in
    front of it are all his friends and
    other politicians who had worked
    with him.

    Everyone is very happy and in evening
    dress. They run to greet him,
    shake his hand, and reminisce about the
    good times they had while
    getting rich at the expense of the
    people. They play a friendly game of
    golf and then dine on lobster, caviar
    and champagne.

    Also present is the devil, who really is
    a very friendly guy who has a
    good time dancing and telling jokes.
    They are having such a good time
    that before he realizes it, it is time
    to go. Everyone gives him a
    hearty farewell and waves while the
    elevator rises...

    The elevator goes up, up, up and the
    door reopens on heaven where St.
    Peter is waiting for him, "Now it's time
    to visit heaven."

    So, 24 hours pass with the senator
    joining a group of contented souls
    moving from cloud to cloud, playing the
    harp and singing. They have a
    good time and, before he realizes it,
    the 24 hours have gone by and St.
    Peter returns.

    "Well, then, you've spent a day in hell
    and another in heaven.
    Now choose your eternity."

    The senator reflects for a minute, then
    he answers: "Well, I would never
    have said it before, I mean heaven has
    been delightful, but I think I
    would be better off in hell."

    So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator
    and he goes down, down, down to
    hell. Now the doors of the elevator open
    and he's in the middle of a
    barren land covered with waste and
    garbage. He sees all his friends,
    dressed in rags, picking up the trash
    and putting it in black bags as
    more trash falls from above.

    The devil comes over to him and puts his
    arm around his shoulders. "I
    don't understand," stammers the senator.
    "Yesterday I was here and there
    was a golf course and clubhouse, and we
    ate lobster and caviar, drank
    champagne, and danced and had a great
    time. Now there's just a wasteland
    full of garbage and my friends look
    miserable. What happened?"

    The devil smiles at him says, "Yesterday
    we were campaigning ......

    Today, you voted."
