What I am about to tell you is something youve probably never heard, nor will ever read in history books. I believe that I am an eyewitness to history. I will not tell you that the German chancellor took Austria by tanks and guns. I will not distort history.
We Austrians elected him by a landslide 98% of the vote. Ive never read that in any American publication. Everyone thinks that the Germans rolled in with tanks and took Austria by force. Not at all.
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.
Farmers and business people were declaring bankruptcy daily.Young people were going from house to house begging for food. Not that they didnt want to work; there simply werent any jobs. My mother was a kind Christian woman and believed in helping people in need. Every day we cooked a big kettle of soup and baked bread to feed those poor, hungry people about 30 daily.

America Truly is the Greatest Country in the World. Don’t Let Freedom Slip Away
“After America , There is No Place to Go”
No matter how many times it happens, liberals brush it off and say “it can’t happen here.”
If you had gone around in 1920 telling people “In twenty years a major European country will be shoveling people into ovens by the trainload” you would have been thought a lunatic.
They are going to find out the hard way that it can happen here, if we don’t stop it
This is a very good read. The Comment section is also very informative.
>The banality of evil.
>Universal Healthcare where you have everyone pay, a smaller set beneifit, and exterminate the set that is a burden.
>Educated people, some even with Doctorates.
>In comment section - redirection of focus on Christianity (religion) as the evil. Always redirect, focus, inflame when the real issue is more about the perversion of unquestioned power and authority. Any group can attain that evil. The Dems ARE that banal evil: they WILL NOT BE QUESTIONED!!! OBAMA WILL NOT BE QUESTIONED.
Good stuff. Thanks for posting!
Wake up AMERICA!!!!!!
If, in 1989, when Reagan left office, someone told you in 20 years, we would have a black Muslim Marxist as President, who would seek the active destruction of America, people would have thought you a lunatic.
We’re seeing it all over again. Welcome to 1933 Germany.
Only until the evils of this Fascist Reality that the Democrats have just forced on the American is felt by the media types FAMILIES will you get at least a similance of truth.
But then the Democrats will have instituted censorship regarding ANY nefetive comments on Obamacare and it’s progeny.
It’s all about baby steps, and the left has been taking them for decades. People are angry at health care reform, but it’s only another incremental step. Government long ago unlawfully seized the power to regulate virtually anything (via the Commerce Clause). They can LEGALLY confiscate any or all income and redistribute it for any purpose.
Politicians already believe they have the right to do as they please. Now they are only haggling over the details.
Don’t put too much faith in guns, either. They don’t have to confiscate them. So long as they keep taking baby steps, most gun owners will never reach the point of open rebellion. Is civil war likely when they give the vote to millions of new citizens and convicted felons? Maybe, but probably not.
Don’t count on the courts either. They’ve been stacking them for decades. Even the Supreme Court hangs by a thread, only one appointment from being controlled by the hard left. The lower courts are stacked with some of the most extreme ideologues you will ever know!
We conservatives are running out of chances to turn the country back from the abyss, especially peaceful ones. I don’t think it’s over, but how many more opportunities are we going to get? Not many. Let’s make 2010 and 2012 count for all they are worth. We may not get another chance.
A Dictator isn’t interested in getting unemployment taken care of - Not yet. It must reach 20% or higher. I believe that with our culture of large TVs, new cars and iPods we will need only 15% national unemployment before looting begins.
There may not be a “Russian Army” to worry about. The invading army in our case is larger, more bloodthirsty, hates us on a personal level and moves silently. This is Islam.
Precisely why I just ordered another 20 round drum for my Saiga 12.

You’re welcome. It came in my morning email from TN Eagle Forum. The Eagle Forum has been on the front lines fighting this crap for decades. http://www.eagleforum.org/
I had the pleasure of hearing Ms Phylis S. speak many years ago, and I’ve been a believer ever since.
Most states have chapters. They also keep up with state legislation. Sign up for your state’s Eagle Forum email alerts.
Fascinating in more ways than one. Thanks for posting.
They own the MSM, that is where most of slick willie’s ‘appointed’ friends went after he left the WH.
