Was Von Staffenberg and the REAL opposition to the nazis socialists? WHat about the White Rose student movement?
Facts are very simple, the leftists in Germany at that entire period (before the war of course) were just as oppressive as the nazis and their takeover would probably have been the Sovjet state model. Also, who staged coups after WW1 and BEFORE the nazis. It wasn't "conservatives"...
The fact that Von Papen was conservative doesn't make a difference. At that time the nazis were not in power and later on he was politically castrated and the conservatives were quiet. After all, they had seen what the nazis had done to socialists already.
So, yes, the nazis were a typical leftist model. Their SA were essentially unemployed people of mostly worker background. They could have joined the communists. As a matter of fact, many prominent nazis had leftist background before 1932...
Sorry, I didn't mean to argue with you. I never do with liberals, because you will NEVER change your mind and neither will I (based upon what YOU say). It is more fruitful to inform like-minded than fight stalemates..
lol! Yes, the "restless" people were more of the leftist... much like the American Revolution.

Von Pappen would be more along the lines of a compromiser. Then again, he was also an opportunist. Which is why he would be caught in the middle. But the conservatives liked Hitler.... at first anyway. Their problem was they thought they could control him.... you know, the way industrialists usually think.

But were the nazis leftist? Hmmmmmm...... when one looks at the political parties they enslaved and the rise of totalitarian power in the civilian and military fronts, the rise of industry and the flow of cash, it's hard to make that case. If the case you're making about the SA is because the nazis offered work, then once again you support the position of the industrialists!

I'm not sure what you mean by "prominent" nazis. From an ideological standpoint, I just don't see it. After all, most of the pomp and circumstance they created came during Hitler's rise.

Don't worry about arguing. History usually makes my case for me with conservatives trying to "explain" their facts against it. And it's not so much that I prefer to "preach to the choir." I have been wrong before (ex... Germany was already losing the war when Normandy occurred). So as far as I'm concerned, it's an open book for perusal and not a speed reader.

The biggest difference in your statement from what I can see is you prefer to base your history on politics. And that's fine. Everyone does to some extent.

The argument that civilians need assault weapons to protect themselves from the government is absurd. Who, exactly, are you going to shoot? A police officer? A Marine? There is no Palace Guard. Politicians aren't going to knock on your door to take your gun. Some of you have said our military will turn on the government and support "the people". Who are the people? And if that is correct then why did you need the assault rifle?
If, as many of you claim, there is a civil war then you will be taking on the full force of the United States military with your rifles. That should thin out the idiot gene pool.
It's simple. The police exist for the sole purpose of protecting me. They merely determine what instrument is necessary for my protection. And, I have every right to protect myself. Therefore, the police have determined that I need every weapon they need for my protection.

... that is, unless the police exist for some other purpose.

Then, yes, we will need protection from them.

And, dufus, the Navy and Marines have internal directive prohibiting them from engaging in combat with Americans in the United States.

The government is what is described in the Constitution. If someone attempts to set up a dictatorship so they can write their own whim as laws, and orders the Armed Forces to attack the population, I believe they will uphold their oath and defend the Constitution.

You seem to hold to the fascist principle that the head of state defines the government.
Thus, you're a fascist. Fascism is prohibited by the Constitution.

You're also a lying treasonous fraud. It's no surprise you oppose the Constitution. You spent your entire life hating the United States. Your current desire to institute a fascist government is no surpirse.
Yeah

SKILL is the absolute perfect description here. Everybody seem hung up on the number superiority, but fact is that had the sioux's not managed to split the 7th, they would likely have lost. In close combat one on one, they were about equal, but at semi-close distance as Big Horn soon became there was no way Custer could have made it differently. All indicates that he had timed upon reunification of the Regiment.
Also, has anyone studied the Nez Perez escape from the feds from Southern Idaho towards Canada. The guy was a genius and he even had studied Napoleon.
Indians were experts in capitalizing on ignorant vanity and arrogance in the battles they won. Geronimo would never have been caught if he hadn't turned himself in. And what did they do to him? Disarmed, dispossessed in reservation for rest of his life. They knew fort sure how to fight asymmetrical warfare. Hopefully the same battle sites won't be "needed" again towards the same enemy...
Hmmmmmm..... did they split it? Or was that the way Custer "organize" his attack?

Next question.
I'm not sure that was an option at the time. But even then, sound financial advice was trumped by illegal management practices.

Your statements clearly don't address the point, but that's pretty much what I expected.

Carol has fallen to the CRA lie.
Banks hated F & F because they thought F & F held an advantage in the marketplace.
So they went to their lap dog, Bush. Bush tried to pull off a huge power grab by trying to put F & F under White House control. Even Republicans told Bush to shove that idea.
I am calling you stupid.
And that explains Barney Frank's coxucking boyfriend being put on the board, the legal threat to tie lenders up in court because of what was called "red lining", the 1999 New York Times article describing Bill Clinton coercing the private banking industry to institute the Democrats' Marxist subprime housing mortgage underwriting program, the Democrats trading their support for the war in Iraq for no effective oversight of the CRA that was obviously failing in 2003, and the economic collapse of 2008 after 2 years of oversight by Democrats Dodd and Frank.
Thanks for clearing all that up.

Progressives use the term "compromise" to steal with.
That's because cons prefer to take things based on "law," son. All of a sudden they have authority to do so!

And you don't have to go back 6 generations son. Just look at the mortgage meltdown.

No.....

CRA was NOT a creation of the 90's son. The means to start the mortgage crisis started long before then IF you're blaming the law. Even if you did, you'd be wrong.

You need to get your facts straight son and take the politics out of your claim if you want to be factual.

I noticed something about the discussion of the inevitable civil war coming here because Obama will attempt to install a fascist dictatorship.

The Democrats are saying they will win because they have the tanks and planes.

40 years ago they were saying the exact opposite.

So, why do the Democrats say one thing today that is exactly opposite of what they said 40 years ago?

The truth is, all they are doing is rooting for their side to win.
The Democrats never got over losing the Cold War, just like they never got over Alger Hiss being convicted while spying for the Soviet Union at the beginning of the Cold War. They are filled with hatred and seek revenge for being defeated in a previous war, and intend to institute a fascist government where the head of state writes his own whim as law and issued edicts to the nation.

Germany's Nazis were filled with hatred and sought revenge for being defeated in a previous war, and instituted a fascist government where the head of state wrote his own whim as law and issued edicts to the nation.

If you do the exact same thing, the exact same result will occur.

YOU ARE STUPID, THAT MUCH IS QUITE OBVIOUS!

You have heard the talking points, but you simply dont understand them!

Clearly you havent even the basic understanding of what trhe crisis was about!

NO LENDERS WERE PRESSURED....nor can you find ANY lender stating they were pressured. Its a stupid conservative lie, as lies are all conservatives have!

Now google these two words and then get back to me, look up the term "Mortgage Backed Security" and "Consolodated Debt Obligation"

There is a reason conservatives lie....YOU HAVE TO!

Notice that Obama won the election with more votes than any FAUXbot host!!

Care to explain how the most popular cable news shows had absolutuely no effect on the outcome of the 2012 election??

Chris Christie had more affect on the election in two weeks than FAUX had in a year.

And can you explain how they could have lived in such a bubble that they really believed that Rmoney had a lead, that he had mo-mentum??

Further, you could explain how their polling, and Rasmussen's could have been so completely wrong??

FAUX was proven to be a blithering incompetent propaganda machine.

FAUX is like the NRA. A fringe grouup, rejected by America.

Billy O gets 1% of viewers. Right up there with the discredited Teabaggers. That'll sway elections!! RoFLMAo!!

And for all the lies and filth they broadcast, The Republicans lost on every level.

Don't like to talk about coal anymore, eh Nobraina??

Can't say I blame you. You lost your ass on coal.

I told ya so!!
