I have, with great interest, studied closely some books by German authors that in detail stated the facts and explained the conditions in Germany post-World War I, the rise and fall of Adolf Hitler, the Nazi party (National Socialism) and the end of World War II, which led to Hitler taking his own life as a coward in an underground bunker.
As one who has been a proud American for 77 years, a college graduate who served in the military, I am informed. Not as much as I would like to be in world affairs, politics and financial systems, but I am informed. I do recognize quite easily that some of those in local, state and national politics, as well as the controlling administration and presidents, have an agenda that is in most cases not in our best interests. There is deception by men and women who have been elected to lead us.
Remember back in 1992 when the slogan, “It’s the economy, stupid!” was effectively used in the presidential campaign? The state of the economy was used effectively in Germany at the end of World War I and was a driving theme as Hitler began to push his dictatorship on the German people. He said, “I can do all things for all people.” Sound familiar?
When he convinced the masses to follow his programs wherein the government would provide everything to everybody – health care, food, jobs, fair wages – then gradually the real agenda began to be exposed. We, the government, will take from the “haves” and redistribute to the “have-nots.” Let’s make it clear: God stated “If you don’t work, you don’t eat.”
Space does not allow an in-depth discussion of all the similarities between Germany and America – the failure of Germany under the dictatorship of Hitler and the deteriorating conditions under the leadership of a number of our presidents, which has led to the implementation of government programs that cause people to be dependent on government.
Remember “The Great Society”? Remember a presidential speech encouraging young people to get involved? Very soon you will see our current president with a gathering of youth at the White House, to discuss ways in which they can get involved. Hitler went after the youth, too, to gain their support for his programs.
If you’re concerned like I am, try to become informed about the system that rules you, and those who lead you, and make those decisions. Those who say, “We know what’s best for you” should not be re-elected.
Consider purchasing, reading and analyzing Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer’s book, When a Nation Forgets God: Seven Lessons We Must Learn From Nazi Germany. And remember those in Washington who said, “Never let a crisis go to waste.” Be informed so you can vote intelligently before it is too late for America.
