JFK never said anything like this. That you think he did is testament to your susceptibility to right-wing propaganda. Nothing you say or post here can be trusted. Your the type of person who ends up wandering the streets with tin-foil hats, warning everybody of nonexistent threats and talking to yourself.

A thousand points of light! Ring a bell anyone?

He doesn't call for a "paramilitary force", only for a force of volunteers, Peach Corps, Teacher Corps, Americorp, etc that would RIVAL IN SIZE (not firepower) the US military.

You can tell it's only 3 days out. Next thing Rush will kidnap Hannity and blame it on Obama.

All Rush needs to do is drug Hannity with some grey-market pills and it'd be easy.

What does this have to do with the topic? My family comes from Cuba so maybe I've researched this a bit more. At one time, a young Castro said something similar to what is being said today.

Nazi Germany all over again!


The SS grew from a small paramilitary unit to an elite force that served as the Führer's "Praetorian Guard," the Nazi Party's "Shield Squadron" and a force with as much political influence as the regular German armed forces.

Schutzstaffel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


what do you think he wants it for?
The leftys think he is gonna bring the troops home from Iraq , but he knows our troops are patriots.

He wants his own version of the SS , or KUDS , or Elite Republican Guard ( saddam's regime ) to control an unruly population who slowly realize that they are being oppressed , and he will move our troops to Afghanistan to get them thinned down after he cuts funding for them.

He has already suggested youth camps way back in the primaries and no one noticed or cared ( except me )



there are distinct parallels to Nazi Germany and Stalinist Russia there.

You people are hysterical -- and I mean this in the strictest literal sense.

What happened to the good old days when the far left had the market cornered on lunatics?

It still remains to be seen. I don't doubt Obama would do this. He's already promised to save the world. If he wins, I'm holding him to it. He's set such high standards for himself, messianic standards at that.

He said he was going to save the world?

That's funny, because I don't remember him saying he was going to save anything.

Hyperbole isn't effective unless used gently and sparingly and has some grain of truth to it.

Otherwise you may come off sounding a bit unhinged.

I would like a direct quote with references on that one, myself.
I do not doubt that JFK could have said that I just do not remember it.
