You would indeed.
If the election offers a choice between Mussolini and Hitler, to fail to vote for Mussolini is to become part of a conspiracy to commit genocide. (Unless, of course, you first abstain and then assassinate Hitler...)
CB: I agree with Brad D.
It would be good to know that Mussolini and Hitler had broken their alliance.
