You realize that Hitler was Reich Wing conservative dont ya?
Always entertaining when the liberals bring up the Nazi's.

Liberals in America love to throw around the term Nazi to insult or even describe the ideology of conservatism. They compare conservatives themselves to Hitler. But when one actually studies Hitler and the Nazi party itself, and particularly their social agenda, there re every interesting results.

1. Let's start with the name of the organization in the first place. Nazi is an abbreviation for Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (National Socialist German Workers’ Party). Notice the second word of the title in English: Socialist. Conservatives are by definition anti-socialism. The Left however, are very pro-socialism. Look at Howard Dean for instance telling us that it is not a question of socialism or not, but how much we are going to have as secular socialists. Popular Left wing leaders ( Barack Obama, Howard Zinn, George Soros, and many others) proudly express socialism as the root of their "enlightened" agenda.

2. Now for abortion. Hitler and the Nazi regime were pro-abortion, they infact, encouraged abortion as a means of population control, and advertised it to lower income families as a means to limit their financial burden. Conservatives are against abortion. Duh. The current president, a very liberal individual himself came out in favor of "Live Birth Abortion”. Liberals and leftists have fought for years, and are still fighting to declare the unborn, and even the just born as non-humans, mistakes, and burdens.

3.. in the matter of gun control conservatives believe very much that every adult in America has the fundamental right to keep and carry a weapon. The populace, in their eyes has the right to be armed. Nazi Germany, not so much. The nazi govt was extremely anti-personal firearm when it came to the nations they had invaded, considering the "subject races" armamnet to be a threat to the Reich. Here's a quote for ya: "The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty"

And there is a link provided covering the specific laws about Jews owning guns: http://constitutionalistnc.tripod.com/hitler-...

The political left stands by the principle that only the military and police should possess firearms.

4. Conservatives believe that the private sector is superior to the Federal government in the field of job creation and maintenance. Nazi Germany was all about government jobs. The Autobahn was built by a series of social programs to create more Government jobs in Nazi Germany. Liberal politicians thrive on the "we create jobs by adding more government jobs" system.

5. Social Health care. Conservatives hate it, Liberals want it, Nazis had it.

We spent more money than any other country on public education, yet we have the most corrupt and inept education system on the planet.

Kids graduating can't even spell their on names.
Teachers bitch about being underpaid,
yet they are paid more than anywhere else.
Illegal Mexican kids are taught in their own language (Mexican, not Spanish !!!)
Black kids are taught ebonics, the illiterate language of blacks.

Kids are brainwashed with revised history, which favors blacks and Mexians.

Kids are taught that homosexuality is the way of the future.

They are taught that Jesus Christ is a myth, and that allah is their savior.

Kids know the lyrics of every rap tune, yet they don't know who our first president was.

The more layoffs the better. They arn't teaching them anything while they are there anyway. The N.E.A. is like a vampire that needs a stake driven thru its heart by way of school vouchers. They have already been put on notice by Romney, I hope the chicago thugs stay on strike until he is sworn in so he can FIRE them like Reagan did the air traffic controllers.

High School graduation rate in Las Vegas is only 65%. Maybe we can fire 1/3 of the over paid under worked administrators and dead beat teachers.

Obama has failed to fulfill his promises. He made health care payments worse instead of better. And he's been caught lying multiple times. Supporting that says a lot about your character.

You're right, and controlling the teachers union is the number one priority in achieving all those things. There shouldn't be any public unions because they are nothing more than political pawns.

Public employee unions at both the state and federal levels should be declared illegal. These unions turn our politicians into worse whores than they already are. Politicians pander to these powerful unions, with their hands out begging for money and then these whores in turn give the unions whatever they want on their contracts. As a result of this blatant corruption, federal and state employees made twice as much as their private sector counterparts in both wages and retirement benefits. And these parasites work for us, the American people. It is time to put a stop to this criminal activity.
