"Would you vote in a pol to have someone killed"

I was on yahoo, when I got an email from Facebook, that said that they had a voting poll asking the question ''Should president Obama be killed", it was so absurd that I thought maybe, I was reading it wrong or someone made an error; so I read it again and it said the exact same thing. Then I got really ticked off, how can human beings treat other humans like they're animals, we all have hearts that beat and and the same red blood runs in each of our veins.

People that are responsible for these kind of actions are related to satan him self and don't have any part of God in them. I really don't think they would like it if someone put them in the same scenario, I think they would be offended. Who would come up with an action that 's so mean and hateful that it defies logic. Do the people understand that these types of actions cause the president to be put in harms way, apparently they don't really care. Who are these people and where do they come from.

Although, I must remember they did it to Jesus, this bad but the worse thing is, there are people in this world that don't have any respect for life; unless it's theirs. We must remember and not forget that we reap whatever we sow. My heart goes out to President Obama, not because he's a black American, but because he thought he could make a difference in this world.

The problem is we can't really help a world that doesn't want help or change, people talk a good talk about change, but talk is just a lot of words without the actions ; that backs it up. I think president Obama is doing all that he can do, under the circumstances. I can't believe that Facebook did such a dastardly deed as posting a voting poll on "Should president Obama be killed", for God sake; this man has a wife and little children to worry about. And we're posting voting polls to kill him; that says a lot about the old American way, doesn't it?. I'm sorry, I can't put everyone in this category, because there are plenty of decent people in the world but, sometimes they're really hard to find.

      You are welcome, I later heard it was a 10 year old kid , who post this poll, I don't really know how true it is. I just wish people would behave themselves. Thank you so much for your wonderful comment and feedback. creativeone59

      You're right, that kind of poll is so absurd. I'm not an American but I do not want anybody to be killed just because somebody out there doesn't like him or doesn't want him to stay on as president. If whoever is contemplating this really hate Obama, then work hard to have another guy voted 4 years from now. The guy is doing the best that he can, under the worst kind of circumstances and under overwhelming odds. I do hope that nobody will answer 'yes' on this poll and that this poll will be removed at once. Thanks for hubbing about this and letting us know creativeone.

      This poll is vile and sick, NO, NO, and H..l NO!

      I go against the president on Polocy all the time. Polocy that I see affects Constitutional Ground, that I feel must remain for America to remain free. I blog and I argue about political science issues, But My view of him is Hes' a Good man, a sinceer person, with a dream for America, and thats not a crime!

      He is not a killer of America, he is not the Devil in disquise! He was the best man for the Job of President at the time. he is there because both black and white voted for the best candidate who was running.

      He may not be what we all wanted, due to his fundamental beliefes as a more radical democrat, more radical than some want, but thats not a reason for murder. Nor is it one for hate. This garbage needs to stop.

      The perfect color in this country is green (Money) if you have it your some one, if not your not, and even though thats a shame it is fact.

      We need to get to a point where color does not describe a person. Just Say there goes a Man, Not there goes a white man or black man. or there Goes a woman, and forget the color words, forget the Color that describes the person, concentrate on the person. It is time to walk what we claim and talk.

      Both sides need to get over it and get down the road with Life for all people, equal, safe and sane!

      Thank you for a great hub. It is absolutely disgusting. Mr Obama tries so hard to get the USA back on it's feet. They didn't vote on Bush who caused endless trouble and heartache and his father. What is the matter with people? He is a good man and the best we have at the moment.

      There is no excuse for this kind of low functioning behavior. Too many Americans don't seem to understand that freedom comes with responsibility. This person no doubt would argue the asinine right to do this - but just how big and bold are you when you keep your identity hidden?

      Facebook is just as bad - not a place where I'd hang out knowing the owner was quietly claiming all right to photos to do as he pleases until someone made a big issue out of it! It's easy to put key words out there to check what's on your site - and they don't know how to do this? No, it's profit driven - in the pretend name of freedom which once again - means no responsibility.

      I saw this article somewhere. How sad is it that people must resort to violence. I may not be American, but i have great respect for Barack Obama and i believe he'll be a great president. The person who created that poll never realized that Barack Obama has a wife, kids, a great role to play in society. I hope that person sorts his mind out and apologizes.

      I don't believe anyone has the right to take anyone's life!

      It is sad but true, some people will do whatever it takes to control someone!

      This is why it is so important to truly know the Lord! Although they may still try to slander you; You can have peace knowing nothing gets by God!

      I heard about this on the news. Sadly creativeone59, nothing surprises me anymore. I thought the same thing - this man has a family, he has wife and children, but I guess that wasn't on the mind of whomever came up with the survey. People today have 'no natural affection' and it's truly showing through their words and deeds. Who deserves to live or die belongs in God's hands - the one from whom life originated.
