Hitler was a madman and should have been stopped long before the Death Camps were even built. So I don’t hate or even blame Hitler the way I’m supposed to. My beef is with the millions upon millions of people who bought into his lunacy and rage.

Although no comparison can be made between that and Republicans in power, my point remains that you can’t blame what sometimes appears to be an obvious target. Republicans may seem maniacal and need to be stopped, but I don’t hate them for their sickness. Those who continue to vote for Republicans, on the other hand, are people I simply have nothing in common with anymore and really have ill feelings for.

Fine, hate President Obama if you need to. Feel free to despise the poor. Rally against the unions, health care, Muslims, Jews and anyone with skin darker than yours. But when are you going to see that you’re voting for people who are unfit to lead?

Block aid for 9/11 workers? Vote against health care for children? Are you kidding me?

Obviously you won’t vote for the Democrats. But please, for the love of your children, just don’t vote.
