    I will, thank you. In one thread, you've acknowledged that it was "quaint" that the only acceptable choices were between two extremes, whereas here you are presenting only two extremes as acceptable choices. It seems that presenting two extremes is permissible so long as you're the one doing it.

    Are you objecting to the legal proceedings or do you simply prefer authoritarian statism no matter the cost to the nation?
    I think he's objecting to the loonification of Republican politics.

    Hitler wasn't democratically elected!!

    On the contrary I believe he should have been assassinated. He rose to power in a democracy but then destroyed the system that elected him

    Lies. His party never had more than 33% of parliament. He managed that on a watered down platform devoid of his radial stances. He then changed the rules illegally and seized power by force.

    He faked his way into a little influence, under false pretense, and rose to power by force.

    Pretending his ideals were voted into office is a load of crap spewed by neo nazis in ignorant attempt to validate his garbage.

    Learn some history.

    Cute choice of words. You've been shown repeatedly that he and the Nazi party weren't elected democratically, so instead you try to hold on to your position by saying he "rose to power in a democracy." Fact is though that even this rewording doesn't help you make the argument that he rose to power through any democratic process. If I said, "Joe committed murder in a country with law and order." that doesn't mean that Joe's crime was lawful, it still means that he broke the law and committed murder.

    Yup

    Sometimes ( unfortunately ) letting the guy implement his Policies and or mandates is a far more effective mechanism for change.

    You are correct. The man who appointed him Chancellor was, however.

    Which still isn't kosher. Let's say the US has a parliamentary system and the Republicans are voted into power, and then the Republicans turn around and appoint Obama to be head of the government. That would be super super skeevy because the people voted for one party, only to get somebody from a completely opposing party in charge. I'm not an expert on democracy, but there's no way that's especially democratic. Some serious back room dealing went on there.

    Anyway, the idea that Hitler was democratically elected needs to die right here and now and for all perpetuity.

    Fair.

    Also, a lot more than just new technology came from the war, and that technology was no small deal, just to add.
