Tomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln are in serious trouble…!!! Haven’t they heard of the Patriot Act?

Really no need for armed overthrowing.

Just vote for something else than Republicans or Democrats. The choice is yours.

“First they arrested the Communists – but I was not a Communist, so I did nothing. Then they came for the Social Democrats – but I was not a Social Democrat, so I did nothing. Then they arrested the trade unionists – and I did nothing because I was not one. And then they came for the Jews and then the Catholics, but I wasn’t a Jew or a Catholic so I did nothing. At last they came and arrested me – and there was no one left to do anything about it.”

– Reverend Martin Niemoeller, survivor of the Nazi prisons and the Holocaust during the Second World War

The majority of humans might as well be considered unconscious, the republicans and democrats will always have a monopoly as long as America lasts.

Who is this guy? Is he really a history teacher?

His facts are a bit, hazy particularly in regards to Hitler’s “election.” Hitler was not elected. He was appointed chancellor by an elected official (Paul von Hindenburg). Perhaps he is talking about a sham election that took place sometime after Hitler took power? 98% is a pretty big figure.

I think that the comparison to post-depression Germany and the US does have at least some merit, but you really should know your history before you make those comparisons.

The wikipedia page on Hitler has some good info concerning his rise to power:
