A senator meets an untimely end after he got hit by a truck while walking down the street. After his demise, he tried to decide between spending eternity in heaven or hell.

A senator died from a ghastly accident. He was hit by a speeding truck and within seconds of his demise, his soul advanced to the spiritual realm.

First, he found himself in front of heaven's gate. St. Peter, the guardian of the entrance, approached the deceased politely. The saint greeted the soul and explained that there was a bit of a problem.

He told the senator that he would have to choose between heaven and hell after spending 24 hours in both worlds. This came as a shock to the soul who asked why. The heavenly being said:

"We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we are sure what to do with you...spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can choose one."

Without hesitating, the politician mentioned that he would love to be in heaven. However, St. Peter asked that he play by the rules first. The senator was then led through an elevator to a place underground.

Finally, they reached a destination. He was surprised to see himself in a fascinating field of green grass and a golf course. In no time, the new soul got entertained by a group of other politicians whom he did business with while on earth.

They were dressed in formal outfits. The group included old friends and the devil, who was the most entertaining and friendly. They welcomed him, chatted, ate lobster and caviar, and even played a friendly golf game.

Within what seemed like a few minutes, the senator got distracted by St.Peter, who claimed his time was up. The pair went up through the same elevator.

This time, when the door opened, angelic souls were singing melodiously with their instruments. The senator spent a day there and was convinced he preferred hell instead.

St. Peter wasted no time in escorting the soul back to hell. When they arrived, the land looked barren, was hot, and filled with garbage. He found his friends dressed in rags and picking dirt off the ground.

The senator seemed confused and, in a teary voice, blurted out his concerns. He said the environment was a direct contrast from the time he last visited. The devil smiled and replied: "Yesterday we were campaigning. Today you voted for us."
