I may be naive, but I have a lot more faith in the nation’s ability to endure.  Republicans thought the Obama years were going to be the end of times and the US was fine. You can go back and hear the same doom and gloom comments when the opposition is in charge. 

As for California, you thoughts of seceding is an intriguing “what if” discussion.  Just from within, there would be so much civil unrest from those people that are against secession it would be scary. Then you would see an Exodus of Californians that want to remain American citizens would not stay in a place that left the Union. I would guess 30%-40% would leave if they didn’t kill each other..Then there is the cut of of Federal funds..Of course that works both ways with the loss of tax revenue. What about the Military?  Does the US shut down all bases and tell California they are on their own?  There are so many really bad scenarios from secession we could discuss.

I think if it ever got that close the Federal Government would do almost anything to avoid that.

Like fight a civil war?

That is such a bullshit comparison. I’m so sick of that crap. Obama did not lie constantly, try to get his felon friends off, stand with dictators and criticize Americans, work constantly to shore up his hateful and spiteful base at the expense of the majority of Americans, or enrich his family businesses at taxpayer expense. The fact that you cannot see that, is what he is counting on and I am sad to say it works.

We are Germany in the early 30s and we have one chance to stop the slide. California will be the first but it won’t be the last if it happens and the states that are left in Trumps America will be the taker states which are mostly red. You “real” Americans will get a hard lesson in who really makes the country run. News flash, it ain’t the chanters in red hats who hate socialism but live on government benefits that they “earned”.

We Sure are…

We are in the middle of a global economic depression…

Like Germany, we were conquered in a global war and we are being punished by a treaty similar to the Versailles Treaty that dismantled our military and destroyed our economy which include paying 33 Billion in War Reparations which by today money equates to $492,083,410,404.62…Yep.  Just like the US.

Inflation is out of control….

in 1930 Unemployment in Germany was 15.8 percent and by 1933 when Hitler came to power it was over 30 Percent so I see then similarity there…

Hitler also reduced unemployment by introducing measures that would encourage women to leave the labor market. Women in certain professions such as doctors and civil servants were dismissed, while other married women were paid a lump sum of 1000 marks to stay at home so I see the comparison there..

It’s virtually identical

It took you that long to go google all that and miss the point?

Good job. No wonder you are in the cult.

Stupid as always. I get why you follow a con man who cheats, lies and steals and runs Nuremberg rallies of red clad people who hate everyone who isn’t “real”.

It was nice while it lasted. Back to kicking the shit out of your high school educated ass.

Why? It’s been discussed and pointed out constantly. It’s why the educated have abandoned your team.

If only this had been written about, by some famous author, say 80 years ago…

By the way,
It wasn’t Nazi Germany before a charismatic leader corrupted it railing against the other.

Kind of like Republicans claiming that Donald Trump was unfit for the presidency, who now praise him for fear of response from his legions of followers.

But definitely no similarities.

Can you imagine being someone dumb enough to repeat the same mistakes? Maybe you should try out that whole wisdom thing. I know it isn’t cool in the crowds you hang with. Chanters don’t like that…at least I hear.

In all fairness, there was a book about “it” in 1935. That kind of proves that we’re similar to 1930’s Germany despite the vast differences you pointed out.

Lol. Thanks for reminding us why you are a dumbass freeloading cunt.

Try reading the book, you piece of shit. Still waiting to see if you want to show up so I can discuss it with your bitch ass in person.

Showing up isn’t your strong suit. You let others do that for you. Still wondering how you live with yourself. Letting 18year olds go die in foreign lands so you can be a bitch?

I guess there is some new rule for cunts that someone else has to respond before you can.

Man I’m starting to sense a theme with you.  Letting others do your work. Sad!

So, you aren’t going to point out in your own words why the US is like “Germany in the early 30s “


I was really hoping you would help me out with this.  Quoting a book written in 1935?  Really? How about Nostradamus? Let’s add the Revelations.

Let’s see..one offering appears to be willing to pay each citizen 5000 per year.  Didn’t Andrew Yang offer 1000 per month?

The Movie “The Truman Show” was more prophetic than what I’m reading in this book.

From what I’m reading in the outline of this book it seems like the protagonist is pushing a very strong central government under the guise of a Nationalist cloak.

Now if a guy like Bernie Sanders starts pushing and America First platform is when it’s time to worry.

Anyway, I was hoping you would offer something personal rather than linking…I guess I’ll just keep hoping.

I think I’ve been pretty clear. A charismatic con man who gets his followers to excuse anything he does cause he says “what we’ve been thinking”, blaming the other, telling you what is down is up, and up is down.

It’s pretty easy to see. Sorry you don’t understand it.

And this is how you compare the US to 1930’s Germany? Dear Lord.
