We often hear how Hitler came to power without winning an election. That’s not exactly true. Unlike our constitutional republic two-party system, German government was and is of the parliamentary form whereby a party didn’t have to win a majority to gain control, but simply form coalitions to become a majority. Therefore, the fact Hitler’s party never got more than 50% of the vote was unimportant. So, how did Hitler come to control all of Germany?
It was a 1933 parliamentary law called Ermächtigungsgesetz, “Gesetz zur Behebung der Not von Volk und Reich” (Law to Remedy for the Distress of the People and the Reich). This law allowed a coalition of the Nazi and Deutschnationale (German National) parties to govern without the consent of the Weimar Republic parliament. That law was unconstitutional, but the people were in such great distress, as our nation soon will be, no one cared. Public distress was unbearable and they were desperate for relief.
Bringing this forward to our situation today in the USA, I thought of a recent Fusion poll of ‘millennials’ 18 to 24 year olds revealed a troubling fact: 77% cannot name even ONE US senator representing their respective states in Washington. Not one.
Another startling fact about millennials: they overwhelmingly want Benghazi-gate Hillary for president. Yes, Hillary, the confirmed sycophant, a habitual liar, who will say anything to get elected.
Where are we today? (I was getting to this point a moment ago.) My wife tells me to stick to the point.
The point: it was economic distress of those years between WW1 and WW2 that led the people of the Weimar Republic to cast aside respect for the rule of law and their constitution. They wanted relief and they wanted it NOW.
As things are going now, our own “Hitler”, a fellow of dubious citizenship who was born to communist parents, raised by communist grandparents, mentored by a well known communist who came to power in our country in 2008 on the heels of an economic meltdown promising “hope and change” that has our country by the throat now. His party retains control of our own “parliament” through a gaggle of Democrat acolytes in the US Senate that prevent veto-proof bills from becoming law.
Whether by design or by simple incompetence, it matters not, this president has accrued more debt for us to bear on our shoulders than the sum of all presidents from the first George (Washington) to the last George (Bush). Despite the inevitable and very obvious consequences of debt service exceeding gross domestic product (GDP).
“Government debt began the 20th century at less than 20 percent of GDP. It jerked above 45 percent as a result of World War I and above 70 percent in the depths of the Great Depression. Debt has breached 100 percent of GDP twice since 1900: during World War II and in the aftermath of the Crash of 2008.” source: http://www.usgovernmentspending.com/us_national_debt_chart.…
President Barack Hussein Obama has, with his pen and his telephone, opened the floodgates of illegal immigration, an act that will assure economic collapse all on its own. Furthermore, in case you don’t know, he has granted work visas to over 5,500,000 foreign nationals since 2009, while we have 46,000,000 on food stamps and ‘blue state’ economies lay in shambles.
I foresee a disastrous 2016 election, IF millennials and yellow-dog Democrats form a fatal coalition to win the presidency again. And, IF we survive two more years of fascist government. You should know also that Obama’s choice of Loretta Lynch to replace Eric “Gun Runner” Holder is a harbinger of more unconstitutional governance out of the White House than we have experienced since the start of 2009 when Democrats gained control of both houses of Congress.
I depart with a message of hope. As God said to Solomon in 2 Chronicles 7:13, when our world falls apart, as it surely will, then the next verse comes into play, IF we repent and call on the Name of the Lord.
“[the first part] When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, [the second part] if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:13-14 NIV
FYI – the German word ‘Reich’ means ‘kingdom’, not republic, not democracy, not parliamentary
