All great tyrants have used religion as a tool to rally politcal support and claim righteous justification for thier poliices.
If Obama has used Christianity as a platform, I will say he has done a very poor job. What do you think he is? Could you give me examples of him emphasizing on his Christianity and using it as his platform? Would asking University of Notredame to cover up the cross behind the podium to provide for a more secular environment be one such incident where you thought he was using Christianity? Did you support him, or did you rebuke him?

This is going to get as weird as ghost busters in every major city . I have said it before people aren't people the way people think they are. Nobody like the comparisons of todays USA and the Nazis or any ugly chapter in history. As soon as the restraints of monetarily supported civility are shed people will become animated and there will be blood split.

I think you'd have to be a deranged fool in order to make this comparison.


yes, but only if you also include each and every other president up to and including woodrow wilson.

He masqueraded as a Christian for twenty years to gain acceptance for his political gain. As soon as he is elected, he no longer attends church and cozies up to his people, the Muslims. Like Hitler, he used Christianity as a tool to gain acceptance. Once in office, the mask comes off.

As I expected, you went back to the good old rhetoric of yours, and avoided giving direct answers to the questions with specifics. In other words, like a typical "conservative" you went for the non-answer and assumed I will bite.

Try again, answering the questions asked, with directness. If you would rather lie and misrepresent, you will definitely avoid it, again.

I dont compare just obama to the hitler...I compare TODAYS liberals to the nasi's of yesteryear (national socialists

the FACT is HISTORY has shown us what happens when you turn a blind eye.



hitler came into power because germany (after ww1) was in economic depression and he was the candidate of 'hope and change',, his plans slowly moved from being helpful to dreadful,,



simple things like 'nationalizing' corporations...., removing the guns from the people,,,,,,blame the jews (or the modern version 'the zionists'),,,,,,,duty of the state(government) to PROVIDE for the people,,division of profits (redistribution of wealth),,,,,, pro-unions.....free education..........pro-abortion.....anti-tobacco..................... DO THESE SOUND FAMILIAR.............. YES THE ARE THE TALKING POINTS OF THE DNC AND MOVEON.ORG...............................THEY ARE ALSO PART OF HITLERS 25 POINTS


many back then compared FDR and hitler and they both 'supossedly' brought their respective countries out of depression....hitlers plans were very much like the new deal...hitler was even named 'man of the year' by Time Magazine in 1938
