A couple of notes on the U.S. election.

Dear Readers:

It seems the GOP race is now between the Blowhard, the Robot and Grandpa Munster!

--------

Watching CNN this evening I heard something that was rather interesting!

-Abe Lincoln understood the telegraph and its use as a means of communication to win the election.

-F.D.R. understood the new medium of radio best and that won him the election.

-J.F.K. understood the power of television better than Nixon so he won that election.

-Donald Trump understands social media and reality television better than anybody and that's what's winning him this election.

BUT!

There is a frightening similarity between what Trump is doing now, and what Hitler did in Germany back in the early thirties kids. There was a lot of social upheaval and everyone was extremely dissatisfied with the government and society in general, so along came a charismatic leader who promised to make the country great again! (They even vilified the Jews as a scapegoat, just like Trump is doing to the Muslims.)

SO!

The next thing ya know the States is going to invade Canada, deport all the Mexicans, and put the Muslims in concentration camps.

------

There is a striking similarity between the United States 'Manifest Destiny' and and Germany's 'Lebensraum." 
The main reason for the Nazi expansion into its neighboring western countries was built upon the principle of lebensraum. Even though it translates literally to mean only “living space,” lebensraum carried with it the desire for the Nazis to expand into other countries to provide living space for the growing German race. (But during this time, the “inferior” races, such as the Jews and Gypsies, who occupied the new Nazi territories, were stripped of their possessions, jobs, and “resettled” in ghettos or concentration camps. This helped break the people’s will, asserted the strong power of the Nazis, and gave direct benefits to the Nazi regime.)
FOLKS, I KEEP SAYING THAT THE UNITED STATES IS TURNING INTO A FASCIST STATE, AND NOBODY SEEMS TO BELIEVE ME!
