If me and my family were lily-white standard-issue Deutschevolk, I'd probably go along to get along or even participate enthusiastically in order to get ahead. Being honest with myself, I probably would have gone along with a number of atrocities; I'm not burdened by an overabundance of conscience and even today I consider Nazism the lesser evil compared to the Soviets and international socialism.

    In the end, though, I'd have probably ended up being executed anyway-- either for resisting the regime or being a part of it, or simply for coming down on the wrong side of some infighting. I just don't have the good sense to know when to keep my head down and my mouth shut.
    I wish we had met July 18th when I came to Cheyenne looking to for something to do. I was on my motorycle and saw the big locomotive while hitting a few bars. Just did not find anything to keep us there very long so we headed back to Fort Collins as the eye candy and bars are plentiful there.

    And the OP is one of the main reasons I support the Second Amendment.
    If Every Jewish arrest/round up had taken a Nazi or two, it would have cost them grievously.
    Wow. That's an interesting perspective on the 2nd Amendment. I've never heard that.

    I would have passively resisted in that I would have secretly done things with covert groups to thwart the Nazi's plans to exterminate the Jews. I have a family to take care of and wouldn't have wanted to leave them to the Nazis had I openly resisted and been killed. This just goes to show that even though our country seems to be falling apart and is in political gridlock, it could be worse.

    I probably will die before we come back to that area unless if it for Kalispell. We live 1100+ miles away. IT was a interesting day town. We went to Laramie earlier that week as well.
