People write time travel fiction about stopping a country from spiraling into fascism

That's how important it is considered to be. It is such a terrible thing, with such horrifying consequences, that we actually debate the morality of time travel and murdering baby hitler (or pregnant hitler's mom). That is the kind of lengths that people imagine they might go to to prevent this kind of thing from happening.

And here we are, on the brink of it happening in the "home of the brave", and no one with any power in this country will lift a finger to stop it. It's my belief that there already are graves in the deserts around the camps, that the genocide has started. Not to mention the rape, child trafficking, slavery. Probably worse things.

Can't we - at least - exercise the smallest piece of congressional oversight, now, while we still have a congress, and nominal oversight power, and the power to investigate and impeach? Am I asking too much?

I'd hate to get to the point where we are wishing we had time machines.

2. I would have given his mother the right to "choose"...

and knowing what we do now, ample encouragement to do so.
