I am 58 and the son of a WWII veteran, as a child, I used to pore over my father's books, especially a 5 volume set called "A Pictorial History of WWII". My question as a youth was how a good and decent people like the Germans could be led so far astray by Hitler and the Nazis. After watching the Republican performance on C-span this morning, I no longer wonder. Nothing but lies and propaganda by Boehner, Cantor, etc. Lets face the truth of what these people are about before its too late!

I know Thom has a "no Nazi references" philosophy, but I just want to say this: At some point in their early history, even the Nazis were not "THE Nazis." The Nazis took power by acting like a grassroots populist organization, and they ran on the fuel of decent people being fed up over hard times and latching onto the loudest, most radical "change agent" they saw. To point out the similarities in tactics is not to say that the modern perveyors of destruction are equally as evil as the Nazis. But it is to sound a warning bell that they might be at least as destructive.

Is war on the menu for 2020 elections?
