The thousand year Reich is alive and well, this country is just the extension of what was started.
People in this country have fallen for the same propaganda that the germans fell for, when people dont understand history, history will have a way of repeating itself

You know what, Roy. I somewhat agree with you. I wish it were not so in this case, but the facts do present themselves. We, as a Americans, are screwing up royal.
Why? There are many reasons, but I think the biggest one is that we are a selfish and ignorant lot, content to let society go to Hell, just as long as we still get our self gratification. "Its all about me!"
As Yoda would say, "That is why you fail."
Unless the American population gets their act together, we are doomed as a democratically represented republic. As of now, we get pushed around by a small group a global, wealthy elites, who are stripping our rights and freedoms away by the minute. Oh well....give me some "free" stuff and all will be well.
