    Maybe if you spent a bit more time in being informed rather than only informing, it might seem less arrogant. As for sand, pound it if you want.

    We chose to overthrow Hitler, didn't we? Let's say we decided to take Hitler out in 1934, would that have been unjustified as well?

    Hitler declared war on us, the republicans were hell bent on staying out of 'European problems' because 18th century men said so.

    And for the same reasons you can't shoot everyone you think MIGHT rape, murder, or remove the factory tag from mattresses ya can't 'take out' leaders we don't agree with, like in Chile '73.

    And how long did the Republicans control Congress and the Presidency during Hitler's reign?

    This is a perfect example of the differences between the present and hindsight. Post-1945 it's easy to say we should have taken out Hitler, but at the time in 1934 we had no inkling what was going to happen, and hence to reason.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    What would be the justification in 1934?

    The Enabling Act and the Reichstag Fire Decree. These along with Mein Kampf and all of Hitler's other threats would justify removal.

    First your claim was we chose to overthrow Hitler when in fact Hitler declared war on us so I guess how the Republicans blocked/fought damn near every attempt lean help toward England- read up on the isolationists in the US Senate of that time period.

    In case you really don't know how the Senate works, a small but rebellious minority can block any vote through a series maneuvers like filibuster, and 2/3rds vote. Please educate yourself on that period before further comments.

    Hitler declared war on us

    The America first Committee

    Senators like La Foyette, Nye, Vandenburg, Borah, Johnson, Holt sr, and Bilbo. leader of the House Republicans Joe Martin jr, member Janet Rankin(only no vote to enter WWII with Japan). Industrialists like Ford and Wood. Lindbergh, William Randolph Hearst, Col. McCormick and Father Couglin. Former President Herbert Hoover, and senator Taft who ran for President in 1940. Joe Kennedy, Gen Wood.

    A wide bunch who were against intervention for a wide variety of reasons from hatred of the English through hatred of Jews to hatred of FDR. Love of Germany and the German philosophy of superiority. Sparta on the Danube.

    The republicans were stone faced Isolationists and fought very hard to block war preparations prior to Dec 7th.

    The Senate isn't like the House where majority rules most of the time and the minority party can be a very effective road block to legislation.
