    Amazing, isn't it. Roman history re the end of the Republic is interesting to read. It's the same thing.

    •  Where are the legions in Germany (none)
      That's what I'm waiting for now.  Whenever the government in Rome became too corrupt the legions in germany would go into revolt, ceasing to follow orders or marching on the capitol.

      While I'm not expecting the army to march on washington, I do wonder what soldiers in our modern version of Germany are thinking right now.  Many didn't get their ballots, many were the subject of attempted disenfranchisement and those that did get to vote have openly questioned if their votes will be counted.  They have reasons to question the legitimacy of the government and they swear an oath to the consitution.  So where are the legions in germany and what are they thinking?

    •  French Second Republic (none)
