    The corruption in the USA is about money, so for that reason alone the comparison isn't valid. Is there corruption? Yes. That is human nature though... it is inevitable. Greedy people seek power. Power in the modern world is closely associated with politics. How is that ever going to change? With people using their power of vote, that is the only way to truly keep government in check, and most people are ignorant and apathetic. This is true of every nation. This will never change.

    I'm always amazed when I hear comparisons between Republicans and Nazis. Anyone that thinks that the fundamentals of the Nazi Party and the Republican party are at all the same, are simply ignorant of both.

    Republicans believe in a less powerful central government as opposed to Nazis who believed in an ALL powerful central government. Among other differences, this one should show the ridiculousness of the analogy.

    You don't know that history of Maximus Zeebra. He has been on a 4 year quest to bash America. It is his M.O.

    Does the OP think Democrats are also part of this "Nazi-like" country or just Republicans?

    From what I can remember, it is the USA as a whole. Democrats and Republicans. I don't think that he thinks that it is a conspiracy, just that the apathetic voter base of the American citizen is being taken advantage of. Taht the government is slowly turning us into a scary Orwellian nightmare, or something.

    ''Many in Germany compare the U.S. to what they went through up until Hitler's regime.''

    I think these types of people spend too much time inventing information. Unfortunately, fairly healthy democracies dont seem to silence those, who insist in making a farce out of all political discussion. Making far fetched comparisons, and dumping them on others is just wasting everybodies time.

    And, I doubt there is anyone alive in Germany who actually experienced pre Nazi Germany first hand. How old would such a person need to be? As well as that, I live in Germany, and have not even once heard anybody here comparing the US of today with pre Nazi Germany.

    Anyone who compares Obama or Bush or "what's happening in the US" to Nazi Germany, defiles the memory of the people who died under that regime... Those who do: Go learn your ****ing history!

    If the question is, are the Dems and Reps Nazi like?
    No they aren't.

    Do they share similar traits of a fascist regime?
    Sometimes yes, sometimes no.
    Depends on the issue.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Well, I don't think so but I don't KNOW for sure.

    I'm now scared that you may be a Hitler.
