Strip by: Billy Hamilton

Holly: I don't know who to vote for. All the candidates have such good ideas!
Delkin: Don't you find some of their promises a little hard to believe?
{Ambrose, Samantha, and Oliver are giving speeches.}
Ambrose: I'll give the Time Program the funding it needs to put man in the future by 2025!
Samantha: I'll drive the unemployment rate into the negative!
Oliver: I'll deliver a new comic three times a week!
Holly: {looking sad} I still think it's possible.
