Dozens of Jews to the safety of Switzerland) he states that he lost his country the moment he agreed to the Loyalty Oath.

His explanation was "No I am not naive enough to believe that if I alone Had opposed the Loyalty Act, then my country would be safe.

But that fact that if I had opposed it, rather than being scared into accepting, then perhaps all those others who were just like me, all of us who were well educated, of a decent status in society, if ALL OF US, had opposed it, then Hitler's regime would never have gone forward." (I am paraphrasing)

That is why I will vote for Kucinich. If everyone like me who knows in their heart that there REALLY are enough others to make it happen - well, that is the only way it is going to happen.

If Kucinich were a shoemaker, his soles would have no holes.

I am not gonna vote for some shoemaker whose soles have five gaping holes - that makes no more sense to me than voting for a shoemaker whose soles have ten gaping holes.
