    Actually sounds more like Hitler in 1933 and NO, Bush/Cheney are not equivalent with Hitler.

    You don't need to go back that far. It's the same garbage spewed by this admin. "If you don't vote for us, you're supporting terrorists". "If you don't support the war in Iraq, you're a traitor". "If you don't support the war in Iraq, you don't support the troops". "If you don't support the patriot act, violating the FISA Laws or (insert any other violation of our rights that's occurred in the last 7 years) then you're supporting terrorists".

    All too familiar.
