The people ARE the country. The government works FOR the people. The government only has powers granted by the people. GRANTED GRANTED. All other powers and rights are retained by the people. RETAINED! Including the right to remove those rights and powers from the government, by force if necessary. Hence the second amendment.

Hitler was a Nazi and the head of the National SOCIALIST Party. Socialism, the antithesis of Conservatism, is the battle cry of the FAR LEFT politically.

Hitler was considered a right-winger in '30s Germany, his party was of the far Right (nationalist and militarist), he and his party were vehemently anti-socialist and anti-communist, and the latter groups considered him their enemy; and finally, a lot of the folks put into camps, Jews and non-Jews alike, were of the Left - socialists, communists, intellectuals.

If you knew anything about Fascism, bird-brain, you'd know all this.

Idiot. Wrong. He was not an FBI Agent. He was a BATF agent when the BATF was part of the Department of Treasury.
Let's review how well you know recent American history....
(This is all in the Congressional Record, for your reference)

Larry Potts invented fraudulent evidence to justify investigating Randy Weaver who had just lost a very close election for Sherriff.

Larry Potts lied to the US Marshals Office when he solicited them for assistance in his illegal action against Randy Weaver. He sent a letter to them stating Randy Weaver was a convicted felon, knowing well that Randy Weaver had never been arrested in his life. This gave the US Marshals jurisdiction and they sent a team of US Marshals to assist Larry Potts' illegal action against Randy Weaver. The result of Larry Potts lying to the US Marshals Office was a 14-year old boy and one US Marshal were killed.

Larry Potts lied to the FBI when he solicited them for assistance in his illegal action against Randy Weaver. He sent a letter to them stating Randy Weaver was a suspect in bank roberies in Montana, which was proven that Randy Weaver's name never appeared in any document ever investigating any bank roberies. This gave the FBI jurisdiction, and they sent to Larry Potts the sniper who shot Vickie Weaver through the head at less than 100 yards while she stood in an open doorway holding an infant in her arms.

This very same Larry Potts is the same Larry Potts that invented the fraudulent evidence that was used to justify the initiation of the Waco fiasco. The end result of Larry Potts lying was 4 BATF agents killed and 6 innocent Americans killed at the outset, and another 80 innocent Americans burned to death by Janet Reno when she took control and ignored the fact that the evidence used to initiate the action was fraudulent.

This very same Larry Potts was nominated by Bill Clinton to be the number two man in the FBI, in charge of the domestic agenda.

If the Democrats had not used Larry Potts to assassinate innocent Americans, nobody would ever even know the name Timothy McVeigh. Instead of being nominated to head the FBI's domestic agenda, Larry Potts should have been on the gurney right next to McVeigh.

If you can believe it, there is even a more horrendous part of the Democrats' legacy in the past half century.

excellent
accurate
Mussolini defined fascism as dictatorship of the corporation
Not exactly a 'Socialist' concept.
Read Albert Speer ..."I had to choose between a future Communist Germany or a future National Socialist Germany since the political center between these antipoles had melted away...'
Speer clearly was placing National Socialism as the right 'antipole'

The key to installing a fascist government is for the government to control the economy by acquiring control of key economic elements, like the Democrats acquiring control of the banking industry. At the same time, the fascists allow non-controlling investment from the private sector, like the Democrats do in the banking industry.
Then, the government spreads the wealth to increase its political popularity.
Fascism also requires blind obedience to the furher, like Obama and the Democrats demand of Americans. Sometimes the Democrats are so stupid they actually announce this. Pelosi - "You have to pass it to find out what's in it." That sounds like something Hitler and Mussolini would say.

I've got a question. Given that Hitler was a socialist, and created a government-has-all-solutions government,...

How the f**k can you classify Hitler as anything but left?

Hitler was very obviously a left-wing radical.
Hitler was consumed with racial hatred and sought revenge for a lost war.
The Democrats are consumed with racial hatred and seek revenge for losing the Cold War.
