The Enabling Act vs. The Patriot Act
    #2872745 - 07/09/04 02:14 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

On February 27, 1933, shortly after Hitler came to power as a minority vote President, the Reichstag (parliament) was burned down, and a Dutch communist was arrested for the crime. The building burned so fast that it was unlikely that a lone arsonist could have perpetrated the whole thing. This incident was immediately used as the excuse for passing the "Enabling Act," which "temporarily" suspended civil liberties in Germany.

Hmm, both Acts greatly increased dictatorial powers for an egomaniac.

Both Acts were given names to inspire trust.

Both Acts were passed to safeguard the nation.

Both Acts were allegedly to be temporary.

Both Acts were passed immediately after a terrorist act (the text had already been typed and waiting).

Both Acts were swallowed whole by the blind majority as being in their best interests until they woke up way too late.

The difference is the arson was not a part of an international group of thousands and thousands of members, countless years of operations, and who plan to burn major buildings at any cost.

Maybe Nazi Germany was a test-run for present-day USA?

You're a very silly fella.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

Perhaps, but so far every single political prediction that I have made has come true. It is not prophecy, but reading the signs. Those who are sleep-walking never see the danger coming.

I imagine that what was said about those Germans opposed to Hitler in WWII would have been similar to many of the messages here:

Leave the country.

You are unpatriotic.

You are a wacko conspiracist.

etc.

You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.

Take a deep breath and step back from the ledge. Is this really a political forum if the discussion is "George Bush is Adolf Hitler"?

I think that this does more than just a slight disservice to the actual victims of the holocaust when you trivalize Hitler like this. Standards for discourse are very low here.
