    Yep. Hitler was worse, but he's not around any more.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    The standard didn't change at all.

    Hitler was worse.
    Obama is worse.

    Notice the usage of past and present tense there.

    It wasn't meant to be a serious post in the first place. It was meant to make fun of the stupidity of asking which of the two groups is worse when one has been inactive for 40 years.

    Might as well shut the site down, the argument has been won.

    That's actually a fairly accurate comparison.

    The groups were compared as idealologies not about activity in time periods, I shouldn't have to explain this on an adult board

    The best things that ever happened to the Unite States were the Civil War and the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

    I am not against the Tea Party, but I am opposed to the reactionary ideas that some of its members would like to put in place.
