Mark Alexander wrote that in Mein Kampf (1925), Hitler’s autobiography regarding the BIG LIE, he indicated“the lie must be so ‘colossal’ that the public would be confident that no national leader could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.” –patriotpost
Does “if you like your plan you can keep your plan, period” and “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, period” along with all the other promises made regarding transparency, oversight and accountability, qualify? Maybe not; but boarders on the following premise where Hitler further says:
“In the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods.
It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.”
Hitler’s Propaganda Minister, Goebbels, affirmed: “the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. … It is the absolute right of the state to supervise the formation of public opinion.” Does mainstream media’s “love affair” with this administration possibly fit this narrative? Mainstream media goes whichever the wind blows in supporting or protecting the administration.
Alexander references Hitler’s assessment of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party, or NAZI: “The party … must not become a servant of the masses, but their master.” With respect to the socialist state and individual Liberty, he wrote, “The unity of a nation’s spirit and will are worth far more than the freedom of the spirit and will of an individual; and that the higher interests involved in the life of the whole must here set the limits and lay down the duties of the interests of the individual.”
Hitler’s regime was founded on the premise that, “We are Socialists, we are enemies of the capitalistic economic system … and we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions.” Goebbels reiterates: “To be a socialist is to submit the I to the thou; socialism is sacrificing the individual to the whole.”
Alexander provides another example for those failing to comprehend the comparisons he makes by citing Liberal economist Hayek’s comment: “There is no difference in principle, between the economic philosophy of Nazism, socialism, communism, and fascism and that of the American welfare state and a regulated economy.”
Obama said: “Make no mistake, we are headed in the right direction, but … we’re not headed there fast enough for a lot of Americans.” Many might interpret this to mean that our economy is improving? The following might reflect just the opposite:
US Debt Clock:
Year US Workforce Official Unemployed Actual Unemployed Not in Labor Force Living in Poverty 2008 143,475,078 10,943,242 13,581,218 80,583,369 39,791,069 2013 143,390,054 10,864,768 20,429,333 91,469,765 47,103,433

The table above is self-explanatory. However, just visually comparing actual unemployed, those not in the labor force, and those living in poverty, not impressive. Considering all the legislation to “stimulate” employment and our economy; one could come to the conclusion that 1) all the money was wasted and subsidized mainly special interest groups and 2) there has been no “recovery. The poverty level is deplorable and inexcusable. So much for resolving issues regarding the “war on poverty.” Still, the actual “non-working” labor force number is approximately 91,469,765 is astounding.
Wholeheartedly believe that all the rules and regulations coming out of the many agencies in DC is a contributing factor with respect to the above statistics. They are killing entrepreneurial spirit in America for all races, ethnic and age groups. Maybe, that’s what this administration and elites want. They talk a good game, but their actions convey just the opposite. This moral outrage is a joke, and we are being played.
