Hitler and Stalin, two monsters of history along with Castro and several others.
 -- jim k, Austin, Tx     
    A very accurate statement. The governmental media complex assures ignorance against any general knowledge of truth, freedom, prosperity, law, or inalienable rights. Easier than that victory over reason was, adding the terrorist force of the TSA, Homeland Security, as well as the rest of the alphabet soup tentacles of the occupying statist theocracy infesting this once free land. (-; Happy Thanksgiving ;-)

    I see now why he dissolved unions when he took power.
     -- Cal, lewisville, TX     
    Cal, yep, fairly obvious - socialism's fascist administrations don't mix well with socialism's applied communist terror and force.

    Terror and force are diametrically opposed to a representative republican form of government. But the masses are so easily moved by fear that it becomes a cheap tactic to get people to fall into line. Hitler's hypocrisy is obvious as he applied terror and force to implement nationalist socialism (fascism) in his own country and eventually declared himself dictator for life. Not sure how to rate...

    Cal there were no needs for a union once the state became a socialist union. That made them competitors for the same outcome. He was against any type of individualism. Aside for his own that is. Which is typical of any leftist.

    For accuracy, On point ! rating wise, no one want's to be found agreeing with Hitler. It is best to be wise about good and simple concerning evil. Many can find themselves becoming that, which they seek to avoid. It is very important to maintain good works while at Liberty. Liberty to do, that which we should do.
