Like many of my friends, I have an undergraduate degree in history. Many of us read history books and foreign newspapers and watch the French news on Channel 2 out of Canada. I also have an inexplicable interest in the life and machinations of Adolf Hitler and from time to time I have questions: In 1932 Hitler got over 13 million votes. Although he had dropped in the popularity polls by 1945, even then he had supporters --- and you will still find those who emulate his modus operandi today.

While cleaning out my barn I got to wondering what it took to get German citizens to admit that they had made a mistake. It is obviously possible to support your leader with all your mind and heart and soul and then one day be aware that he is a nut who has turned the entire world against you. But does this realization that he is a dangerous dubber come to you gradually or does it strike suddenly? Everyone did not wise up to Hitler at the same time. So what did it take to get people to surreptitiously scrape from the back of their cars the little black swastickas that said “Support our Biltzkreig?" At what point did they not want their bumper stickers to remind their neighbors that they had voted for Adolf H in 32?

We do not like to admit that we make mistakes so, for many, accepting the truth must have been difficult. After all, Hitler said “I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator… I am fighting for the work of the Lord." You have read that Adolf Hitler could not have come into power without the support of the Protestant and Catholic churches and the German Christian populace. He preached peace and many cried with him as he gazed skyward, clenched his fists and said, “I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice.” So because of compartmentalized thinking, we can embrace a leader who fights for truth and justice beneath a Christian banner with the unequivocal approbation of God while, at the same time, we know that he is a megalomaniac who is pulling the country down around our ears.

How did Hitler find people who would cheerfully and proudly march into far away lands to fight and die in a senseless war “for the fatherland?” He said, “the political opinion of the masses represents nothing but the final result of an incredibly tenacious and thorough manipulation of their mind and soul.” Today he might have said, “Thank God for compartmentalized thinking,” Anyway, although I don’t know why it took so many so long to wise up, perhaps you can tell me.

I think people should have the choice to build their own income instead of somebody else’s. Freedom of well being and all of that...anyway take a look see what you think.

Hi,

I'm sorry for being intrusive in to your blog. But I am Melissa and I am a mother of two that is just trying to get out of an incredible financial debt. See my hubby is away in Iraq trying to protect this great country that we live in, and I am at home with our two kids telling bill collectors please be patiant. When my husband returns from war we will beable to catch up on our payments. We have already had are 2001 Ford repossessed from the bank, and are now down to a 83 buick that is rusted from front to back and the heater don't work, and tire tax is due in November.

I'm not asking for your pitty because we got our ownselfs into this mess but we would love you and thank you in our prayers if you would just keep this link on your blog for others to view.

God Bless You.
