PUBLICALLY responding to personal attack

To the anonymous person who decided to attack me in response to my last post:  "When I say something, I put my name next to it." - Isaac Jaffee, Sports Night.

I have decided not to unscreen your comment, since you didn't have the courage to stand by your words. It's my journal, and my decision to do that. However, I will address what little bit of subject matter that was in your post.

Per a request from wtf, I will put this behind a cut tag.

I did not "win" the election. My post was generic in nature and actually referred to the whole election process, not just that of the president. I have never stated who I was voting for president, and appreciate that we cast secret ballots. I will simply state that I did vote. There were many other issues on the California ballot which I also voted on. Taken as a whole, there were issues where my vote appears to be the majority vote right now. On the flip side of this, there were issues where my vote was in the dissenting opinion.

I am not burying my head in the sand to the issues. I am personally keeping track of the issues, as well as several issues in other states that I have interest in. But the fact of the matter is that the people, following the laws set out well in advance of the election, have voted. A decision has been made. Assuming the decision is validated as true to the laws, then it is time to address the ramifications of that decision. What does that mean? It could be as simple as doing nothing, and as complex as fighting a legal battle. That is the work that has to be addressed now, in my opinion.

None of this makes me a Nazi, and this alone is not going to make me burn in Hell. Your condemnations are irrelevant, as you are not aware of my specific voting history nor, likely, about me as a person. However, I appreciate your concern about the future of my soul. Have a nice day.

People Love to throw around the term Nazi without actually considering the history of the Nazi Party. I heard time and again that Bush was a Nazi, blah, blah, blah. The NSDAP (later shortened to Nazi) was a socialist workers' party. It was a labor union turned political entity. I have yet to see any specific instance of Bush or his cabinet acting like a labor union. I do, however, just Love hyperbole and fundamental misunderstandings of history though.
