    The Nazis had the previous Nationalist Governments setting up rule-by-decree measures and the public got used to that.

    The Nazis built on precedent.

    That's what we have to watch out for.

    It isn't like the Democratic Party is so intent on representing the people's interest (like, for example, Job creation above deficit talk) that they're guaranteed to be in power even as early as 2016.

    What does a President Jeb Bush do with these tyrannical powers when journalists start writing about Wall Street corruption, say? Do we hear "Wall Street must not be panicked as that would lead to collapse of the economy and that to the collapse of the USA. National Security!!!"? (the already established Holder DoJ argument for coddling the criminal class).

    Markos! Not only are the Gates Not Crashed, they've fallen on us. Actual Representatives are what we urgently need, because we have almost none.
