But that's not realistic.

If I offer two reasonable candidates, one pro-life and one pro-choice, Saul's mind is made up, barring something absolutely insane.

That's a one-issue voter.

Which is fine if you want to be that way.

What's not fine is shitting on others who wish not to be.
I don't have a problem with you putting up with Obama's support for oppressive dictators who brutalize their own people. I've compromised my strong beliefs by supporting candidates who endorse a progressive income tax.
