Parallels Between Weimar & US

To the left, a medal commemorating Germany’s 1923 hyperinflation. The engraving reads: “On 1st November 1923 1 pound of bread cost 3 billion, 1 pound of meat: 36 billion, 1 glass of beer: 4 billion.” Man, I hope that this is not a forecast of parallels between Weimar & US. I will have to move away from microbeers.

The hyperinflation in Weimar Germany is a textbook example of what the US very realistically could one day face. The situation in which the US finds itself is very much similar to that of Germany after World War I. It, after all, was considered by the international community and the League of Nations – which the US did not join due to jingoism more than anything – a threat and had to foot the bill for damages for the war. This means Germany would have to continue paying down debt for the most massive World War in history.

Most people do not make this connection. They see only the monetary parallels between the two countries. But, the empire-building projects of both countries are very much at the forefront of what brought inflation and hyperinflation about.

looking at the gold and silver charts

we are coming close to the point of skyrocketing gold and silver prices.

There is another parallel between the two,

and that is the moral character of modern-day Americans is just as fragile as was that of the citizens of the Weimar Republic, due to the constants of human nature. The Weimar hyperinflation gave rise to Hitler. The American hyperinflation will give rise to ???? Somewhere in the land there might be a scheming would-be totalitarian who is just waiting for the right crisis to make him the American "Leader" who will save us from ourselves. IT CAN HAPPEN HERE!

Hitlery Clinton

After the coming crisis, many Americans will be weary of failed MALE leadership and in desperation will turn to Hitlery who will portray herself as motherly savior who will bring world peace and prosperity. Crowning herself the new "Leader" Hitlery BATHORY Clinton's reign will be the bloodiest the world has ever seen. She will BLAME THE JEWS for the economic collapse and usher in the SECOND HOLOCAUST, sending millions of innocent Jewish men women and children to be burned alive in FEMA DEATH CAMP OVENS --which they are building as we speak. These plans must never be allowed to come to fruition or she will bring pain and suffering upon humanity the likes of which have never been seen. I PRAY every day that we will get our country back on track and that these plans do not come to pass.

Disregard government. Acquire liberty.

You may be right about Hillary

coming to power in the crisis. I honestly don't think she will single out Jews, though, but will go more for the more politically correct "terrorist" enemy. It's just that, in this case, the "terrorist" group will be defined as half of all Americans.
