7. My main criticism of the Hitler parallel is that Hitler took a broken
country and built it into a huge industrial/military machine, whereas the Bush junta took a prosperous country and broke it--the Bushites don't seem to be building anything. No industrial base. A huge loss of jobs, income, and big hits by price gougers. An $8 trillion deficit. They just seem to be big-time LOOTERS.

We need to beware of historical parallels--in the sense that they may not tell you where the danger really lies in current circumstances--especially in a country such as this, which is so very different from Germany 1930s (much bigger, much, much more diverse, much longer tradition of democracy). I think the danger may be AFTER Bush, and after four years of a Diebolded-into-office Hillary taking all the blame for everything Bush. THEN we get Hitler.

Throw Diebold and ES&S election theft machines into 'Boston Harbor' NOW!
