In 4 1/2 Years from 12 marks to 4.2 trillion marks!

When a little Austrian guy by the name of Adolf Hitler came along and promised everyone 'food and work' of course people voted for him.

In a halfway prosperous Germany Adolf Hitler's chances to gain power would have been slim to none.

In an ideal World, Hitler would have been a better painter, and never have entered politics.

Even so U.S. politicians of any stripe prefer to ignore the reality of it, I think the possibility to see the establishment of totalitarian Communist or Socialist Countries anywhere South of the U.S. border is very real.
All it will take is a charismatic leader who promises something to all the people who have nothing.
OMG, I hope you are wrong But, somehow, I doubt it


"I am enclosing two tickets to the first night of my new play; bring a friend, if you have one."
- George Bernard Shaw to Winston Churchill.

"Cannot possibly attend first night, will attend second ... if there is one."
- Winston Churchill, in response.
