We had a relative (wife of a distant cousin, recently passed on) who was an Austrian girl during WWII. She didn’t much like to talk about those days but she said essentially the same thing - they thought of Hitler as a savior. He put them back to work and restored their sense of national self-worth. By the time they figured out what he was really about, it was too late.
If alive, I wonder how Gen. Lee would respond to the statment: After America, There is No Place to Go.
Thankfully, Barack Obama is way, way too much of a bumbler to effect “miraculous” change like what Hitler did. Everyone knows he is a flim flam now. The big “stimulus”? Pffffft.
Why do WE have to go anywhere ? It's OUR country. They are the ones who have to leave. They just don't know it yet. But they will soon.
This is a solemn warning. Do something now or it will be too late.
I recommend impeaching Obama and throwing the rest of them, as many as are up for re-election, out of office next November.
One big difference though - there are approximately 270 people in both houses of congress against about 320 million people. 100 million of us own guns. The military is largely composed of real Americans.
These people are too arrogant to learn from their mistakes.
Elections have consequences and treasonous decisions by elected officials have consequences too.
It’s best if we take care of this by use of the soap box (educating people) or the ballot box (voting for Americans instead of Democrats).
We should NOT need to resort to the cartridge box. There are enough true Americans to vote them out if awakened to the real dangers.
In WWII, My father fought in Europe, and my mother worked in a munitions factory making tracer bullets. While I miss them very much, I have to say I am glad they didn’t live to see what’s happening today.
Kitty Werthmann: I cannot tell you that Hitler took Austria by tanks and guns; it would distort history. We elected him by a landslide 98% of the vote. I've never read that in any American publications. Everyone thinks that Hitler just rolled in with his tanks and took Austria by force. In 1938, Austria was in deep Depression. Nearly one-third of our workforce was unemployed. We had 25% inflation and 25% bank loan interest rates... We looked to our neighbor on the north, Germany, where Hitler had been in power since 1933. We had been told that they didn't have unemployment or crime, and they had a high standard of living... We were led to believe that everyone was happy. We wanted the same way of life in Austria. We were promised that a vote for Hitler would mean the end of unemployment and help for the family. Hitler also said that businesses would be assisted, and farmers would get their farms back. Ninety-eight percent of the population voted to annex Austria to Germany and have Hitler for our ruler. We were overjoyed, and for three days we danced in the streets and had candlelight parades. The new government opened up big field kitchens and everyone was fed. After the election, German officials were appointed, and like a miracle, we suddenly had law and order. Three or four weeks later, everyone was employed. The government made sure that a lot of work was created through the Public Work Service. Hitler decided we should have equal rights for women... Our education was nationalized... we wouldn't pray or have religion anymore. Instead, we sang Deutschland, Deutschland, Uber Alles, and had physical education... In 1939, the war started and a food bank was established. All food was rationed and could only be purchased using food stamps. At the same time, a full-employment law was passed which meant if you didn't work, you didn't get a ration card, and if you didn't have a card, you starved to death... Soon after this, the draft was implemented. It was compulsory for young people, male and female, to give one year to the labor corps... Three months before I turned 18, I was severely injured in an air raid attack. I nearly had a leg amputated, so I was spared having to go into the labor corps and into military service.Thanks Commander X.
I agree, this should be read and understood. Socialist changes are imminent in this country under this president. I’ve come to the point where I’m tired of the banter and argument about who’s right and who’s wrong; even whether or not the president was qualified to be president. I know it’s coming, unless it can be stopped. If it’s not, all I can tell the people that are blind to it, is “Just watch. Wait and watch, and pray.” I prefer I’d be wrong.
