    In the case of 30's Germany that bought Hitler to power, one of his promises was that there would be food for everyone within a day of him getting power.

    Germany at that time was a failing nation state and there were literally people starving in the streets. On the night of his win, there were wagons pulled through the streets by horses distributing bread to citizens.

    As the saying goes; When the table is empty, there is one problem, when the table is full, there are many problems.

    After Hitler "filled the table", he needed "the single issue" to focus thought and that was hate of the common enemy. The common enemy included Jews among a group that Hitler defied as denying justified wealth from the German People.

    Today, the Democrat-Socialists are employing the same "common enemy" tactic to maintain their base of power and to divide the American people along contrived lines.

    Today's US Conservatives think the Democrat-Socialists are odd and a little dim witted. They pity their opponents. The Democrat-Socialists think that anyone who stands in their way is evil. They hate their opponents.

    Since they are filled with hate instead of logic or reason, they cannot see how silly and contrived their conclusions are. It's comical in a "Hitler's not laughing at you, he's laughing with you" kind of a way.

    It's easy to see why you think of 30's Germany. The tools and tactics have been resurrected and put to use by a new group and they seductively use them. Again.
    Well said. Exactly on point.

    The inability of so many people to read simple information is why advertising is so powerful and potentially dangerous.

    Twitter will no longer run any political advertising promoting candidates or particular hot-button issues, CEO Jack Dorsey announced Wednesday.… Dorsey said Twitter will share its "final policy" by Nov. 15 and begin enforcing it by the following week.

    I was just demonstrating why advertising can be dangerous. That kind of thing has been around for ever because it works with people buying what it's selling, regardless of whether the product is effective or even harmful. Exactly the same applies to people buying in to political messages.

    The problem with not allowing political ads is that someone has to decide what "political" means.

    I never heard about Twitter ads being the cause of Hillary not visiting Wisconsin. Maybe Twitter caused it. I suppose we'll never know. Might have been mentioned in the emails deleted after being subpoenaed.

    I thought Facebook was the site that carried the objected to ads in the 2016 Election. I've still not seen an example of the ads that are said to have turned the election.

    Have you?

    Your sig line is priceless. The source material took many years to write.
