Dear friend,
> 
> the Time magazine is organizing an e-mail election in order to find the
> "man of the century" and Hitler is in front! I don't know how you think
> about it, but I don't want to see his face on the cover of this year's
> december edition of the Time magazine. I don't think that someone who
> is responsible for the death of millions and someone who taught hatred
> in such an unbelievable way should be called the "man of the century".
> For me personally there are others like Martin Luther King or Nelson
> Mandela who deserve this name more than Hitler. Neonazi groups from all
> over the world call their members to vote via e-mail for Hitler and now
> I want to do the same, but the other way round.
> 
> It is on you if you want to follow my call for voting against Hitlera
> and it is also up to you if you want to spread this e-mail or not. It
> won't cost you anything and takes just a little time to do. At the end
> of April Hitler lead with nearly 200.000 votes. Please vote gainst him
