Many of our politicians believe that it's ok to engineer something immoral (and illegal) if it benefits the "common" good....and if by common good you mean a specific political base while seeing the rest of the population as sub-human or an enemy. The specific machine represented in this cartoon justifies its existence with the notion that liberals will absolutely ruin America if they win majority control through elections, and these politicians must do anything they can to stop that from happening.
