U.S. Rep Paul Broun, R-Ga., does not need to be replaced. Several writers have expressed extreme dissatisfaction with Broun for labeling President-elect Barack Obama a Marxist and comparing him to Adolf Hitler. It is apparent these writers are too young or poorly educated to know about World War II and its causes.
Karl Marx's primary goal was to seize property of the wealthy and redistribute it to the poor working class: "From each according to his means, to each according to his needs." Obama said something like this to Joe the plumber on TV.
Comparing Obama to Hitler is historically accurate. One of Hitler's means to control the German people was to form the Gestapo secret police answerable only to him. Obama has made similar statements in the media. Like Hitler, he says he wants a national police force answerable to him.
Hitler also disarmed the German people which is what the U.S. Democratic Party has been trying to do for years. For similar reasons the Democrats and Obama, also like Hitler, are afraid of an armed citizenry rising up against them.
I will add to Broun's so-called "direct insult to voters" the Russian KGB (Committee for State Security), Josef Stalin's secret police. Stalin purged, which is to say he destroyed the lives of millions of people that he declared "undesirable." Does this sound like the recommendation of some Democrats to deal with Rush Limbaugh and other conservative broadcasters?
Why do these issues relate to Obama? Well, he says he wants to have a secret police with a filibuster-proof Congress? No telling what that means in security terms for all Americans -- particularly for those who dissent from Democrats' party line.
