I do wonder

I have always wondered how Hitler was able to get most of his citizens to follow him. I read a book by Victor Klemperer who tried to keep up with everthing that HItler did leading up to the horror and the things afterward.The book is titled I bear witness.. it is a diary of the Nazi years. 1933-1941.

There were set before the people lots of new rules. Jews had to wear yellow stars on their clothes. The ones who were able got out of the country. Victor Klemperer was married to a German Woman. (Probably the only thing that saved him) Very interesting book. They cut his times to lecture. They made him put a red tile roof on the home his was building. All the newer houses had to have that type roof. (Reminds me of a large American experiment, when the government made us all get new tvs or had to buy a box to hook up to our tvs so we could get better reception and analog wouldn't be used anymore.) That worked very well. The German media only told the people the things the Goverment approved. Does this sound familiar?

I'm not going to go on with other things that have been done further leading our country into communist directions. I think I am seeing how these things happen. First they separate the people in the country. Make someone the scapegoat. Ellect a "dear leader" who the majority will follow and that person proceeds with his wicked plan and no one ever says "THIS IS NOT RIGHT".. It is not right that babies are being aborted every day. It is not right to take money from the people who worked and saved and give it to the others who did not. It is not right to make everyone buy insurance and have already planned that the aged will not get care and will often be offered "Mercy Killings" (hospice)

Congress and the courts stand by and let the president have his way. I think I am living in a time of history that is destined to repeat itself. And it will not be pretty. May GOD help us all!

You may very well be correct in your assessment.

I agree. We look back and wonder how things like Nazi Germany could happen, and then see similar things taking place right here.

Whatever happens, I am glad my husband is gone and will not see it. He held your same beliefs and it took him to an early grave. It is frightening yet I live on hope and faith that God is mighty and will see us through whatever comes.

from Rev Martin Niemoller ref Hitler:
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me--and there was no one left to speak for me.

Yes, it is happening again...and Hitler was even nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize (but was later rejected)...I still haven't figured out why Obama received his...due diligence is called for...and PenPen,Fox is generally the only one who tells the been watching MSNBC? ABC? CBS? Open your eyes or at least stop trying to blame everything on Fox...I watch Fox and am not ashamed to say so!
