"Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

Meh. He wanted to kill religious people. I'm fine with him.

I remember reading somewhere that Nietzsche said that religious people are unfit to live though I can't find the quote for the life of me...

Where have I seen that before.

Nietzsche had a great deal to say about religious people and religion in general, and specifically ascetic priests, in the Genealogy of Morals. But that he meant that religious people should be made not to live (if that is what you're getting at, let me know if that is not the case), was not the case.

Groupthink can be a powerful concept. Nietzsche is right though, according to the field of social psychology.
"The solution [for Republicans] is to admit that Bush was a bad president, stop this racist homophobic stuff, stop trying to give most of the tax cuts to the rich, propose a real alternative to Obamacare that actually works, and propose smart free market solutions to our economic problems." - Distraff

Doubt it. Probably something from the bull crap about him being a Nazi. (which is totally false. Not his fault his nazi sister changed to her liking her brothers then unpublished work while he was insane and Hitler completely distorted his meaning.)
