Chapter 14
The Fatal Percentage

Daniels sat in his living room and watched as the countdown clock reach zero.

The man reappeared back onto the screen and looked towards the camera and almost appeared to be smiling.

“Thank you America,” he said. “Thank you for reaffirming my faith in you, and your faith in yourself. The business ran by this man was just as cruel and evil as he was. However, just because this business was evil, it doesn’t mean that every single one is. We all know who they are, but we choose to ignore them for the sake of cost. Well tonight America; let’s make a pact to no longer ignore. Let us help advance those companies who are just and fair, and let us stop aiding those who are evil. Let us help reform this country to the way it should be. Let’s go and take back what’s ours. Thank you, and God bless America.”

The image disappeared from the screen and was replaced by extreme makeover, home edition. Daniels sighed in relief that it was now finally over. He went to his fridge, grabbed a beer and drank to himself and the nation. Then the man who the nation did not know, did not recognize, or did not realize to be the fatal vote who tipped the scale to the side of punishment, sat down and drank as he and the rest of the nation, enjoyed their television.
