    Adolf Hitler was voted into power. Just because someone is popular doesn't make them right. The People as a whole are not good judges of what is good. They're good judges of what they like. What people like isn't always good. Why? Again I say: Hitler was voted into power. By whom? Millions of Germans. Same thing with Colbert. He's liked, not talented, and certainly not right. Same goes for the Socialist Baboons, I mean the Obamas.

    Rarely do I have such an emotional reaction to a song. We need to continue to get out, speak up, vote and take back our country. We can not let the current climate dictate who we are as a nation. Thank you Common.
