Day of Rage
The Wisconsin protest reveals to us the great necessity to have an American "Day of Rage". We see that we still have the power to mass against the special interests of those who want to take away the power of the people. But we must understand this is a reactionary protest, that leaves the people in a position of active defense. A day of rage will be an active offensive of the people to show our government that we refuse to let them favor the rich, allowing transnational corporations (through their lobbyists) to steer legislation in their favor, and control elections through unrestricted campaign contributions (citizens united case). We must learn to take to the streets before the need arises to protest in defense of the rights that have already been fought and won.
American revolt and rage will not be driven from the same causes as Egyptian's, but we can and must still take inspiration from them and all our other brothers and sisters in the Middle East.

Re: "I can only pray for his death, please Lord, hear my prayers."

I don't think God is impressed by bigotry masquerading as religion. Jesus addressed people like you and answered the question of whose prayers the Lord hears:

LUKE 18:9-14

To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everybody else, Jesus told this parable: "Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood up and prayed about himself: 'God, I thank you that I am not like other men -- robbers, evildoers, adulterers -- or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.'

"But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, 'God, have mercy on me, a sinner.'

"I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted."
