Make no mistake about it we are in the midst of a Constitutional crisis of immense proportions. Not so much in what the Constitution says or means, but whether it will survive as we know it. You say, "Oh Professor, you are ranting and raving about nothing." Am I?
A democratic republic struggling to recover from a recession bordering on depression. A small party of radical politicians came forward, and decided that using the democratic process was the way to power. They preached nationalism. Told the people what the problems were, and who was to blame. Certain ethnic groups, homosexuals, and non-Christians were responsible. We have to expel these problem makers and purify our beliefs. Some engaged in revisionist history to support their positions.
Their leaders were bombastic, passionate, loud, exhibited the anger of the rank and file and spoke of greatness and military superiority to an uneducated electorate. They claimed they could fix it all (never saying exactly how), and all they needed was to have the power to do it. After reaching less than 35% of the vote, but enough seats in the legislature to stalemate and paralyze the government, the majority, believing they could control these radicals to do their bidding, gave the party the power it wanted. Appeasement and hubris.
You think I am talking about Washington today. You would be wrong. It happened over 80 years ago. Not here, but in Europe. We are not supposed to use the "N" word (not that "N" word), or the "H" word, but the parallels are uncanny. If you don't believe that Carl Rove and his ilk don't study how this can be accomplished, and have taken stock of the human condition you are wrong.
Wake up America. History does repeat itself
BTW - Ben Carson you are an imbecile. The "N's" did not take power because the Jews did not have guns. (And of course a few handguns and rifles would stop the power of tanks, artillery, machine guns and rocket propelled grenades. Do you not know of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising?) Read above. They took power through the democratic process. You are not Jewish, you don't know what you are talking about, and don't use my people to justify your idiocy. You are beyond arrogant. You are a moron.
I am angry. Can you tell.
