    My feeling is that we are a very different people with a very different government and different culture.

    That is why we, as a nation will not go Nazi. Not gonna happen.

    Someone might try, but it ain't gonna fly.

    I didnít like George Bush in 2001 but I didnít think he was trending toward becoming a dictator. Trump is an entirely different thing. I fear for our country.

    Pushing your particular version of the truth was hardly original with either the Third Reich or the MAGAphiles. Nor for our new aristocracy of the caring and sensitive explaining why the deplorables are bitterly clinging to the wrong side of history. Itís like claiming that since both Trump and Hitler had microphones they must be equivalent.

    I donít hear the jackboots on the cobblestones that so many others seem to. The times are very different, and people have been crying wolf for far too long.

    Deporting people here illegally even if they havenít committed a felony does not strike me as evidence of nascent fascism.

    I'm recalling a talk I went to years ago by a Holocaust survivor. She was a young adult woman when she was sent to a concentration camp.

    She described the increasing restrictions on Jews in Germany over the years leading up to the "final solution." She was asked, Why didn't you just leave?
    Her answer: Why didn't Americans leave when the Patriot Act was passed? Response in the auditorium: Complete silence.


    The Holocaust didn't start overnight. It was years of events that led to it, including an economically stressed public who were susceptible to the propaganda that proved effective.

    No other president sought to divide people and incite violence. Yesterday a man with a gun killed someone shooting people in McDonald’s. While it ended well I have read it is difficult to shoot accurately which is why police aim for the torso and police are well trained. Citizens having a shoot out could easily go wrong. Ugh!
