Bondith: "It was God's divine word that I be there. Originally, I was just going skip the ballot and just go to lunch that day," Houston said.

Instead of making you go vote, wouldn't it be simpler just for God not to give the guy a heart attack?


God works in confirmation-bias-supporting ways.

blatz514: Either subby was the Weeners on the article or it was shamelessly stolen:


Because the Detroit News comments section is the genesis of the 'the dead are voting Democratic' joke?

Well, if he was revived for free at the polling station then he probably voted Democrat anyway.

To those of you saying this is an "old" or "tired joke:

It's not a joke if it's true.

moralpanic: And yet all the election frauds seems to be committed by Republicans...


Both sides do it, so vote Republican. Or don't bother, someone else already absentee voted Republican using your name.

LDM90: Next time subby makes this joke, he should change it to "Republicans". Then fark will find it hilarious.

/you know what to do, Francis


It's not hilarious either way. I'll grant it was probably funny the first time someone told it 100 years ago.

Subby stated, "If he had voted while dead, he probably would have been a Democrat" Wouldn't it make more sense that he voted Democrat after not dying since it's Republicans who seem so against healthcare and the welfare of others?

I find this story kind of fishy. As a paramedic, CPR is never that quick and clean. Ribs get broken, vomiting happens, and it's actually quite difficult to do efficient CPR with just one person. It's a very touching story that makes me smile, don't get me wrong. But, I'm pretty skeptical about it the whole process of this voter who "died" briefly.

I never understood that logic. "That child survived the plane crash! God has performed a miracle!" Um, what?

Of course, if he voted while brain dead, that would mean he's a Republican. 

Or if he voted while dead inside with no compassion or empathy, he's a... well, still a Republican.

I'm impressed. Not only can you vote, you can also post on Fark while dead.

"He was dead," Houston said. "He had no heartbeat and he wasn't breathing. I started CPR, and after a few minutes, he revived and started breathing again. He knew his name and his wife's name."

If you were revived, it means you weren't dead, eh.

It all depends. Was he revived by a registered nurse whose training was paid for from public funds, or was the training paid for by a job creator?
