"A survivor of Hitler sets the story straight on how dictators take control.

They get elected and then the first major step is "Gun Control" and gun registration. Keep the rights you still have or lose them.

Once you lose the ability to defend your self you will lose all your rights."

bear in mind that

by defending yourself and your family, you not only defend your life but also your natural RIGHTS that are inalienable to your life.

98% landslide for Hitler. Freely elected, he was. He did not even have to rig the election.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

It bears mentioning that

a lot of the people here (in Austria) still don't actually fully realize that, or think that he mostly rigged the election. It's called the "Opfertheorie"(victim theory)- indicating that Austria, through the annexion into the German 'Reich', neglecting they voted and mostly cheered for it, fell victim to the German takeover- turning the naivity, with which citizens welcomed Hitler as the saviour to their problems (much like Obama, etc..), into a kind of absolute blamelessness, whereas no one could have possibly been able to foresee any of Hitler's following policies.

So, you see there's in and of inself much naivity in this Opfertheorie as well...

Was it 98% of eligible voters.

If a 1000 people vote and 980 show up at the polls, for example.

What say did the other million say? Who was not allowed to vote?

Would Adolf and his goons lie or violate the secret ballot to certify his control?

Free includes debt-free!

Disregard election results of 98%

I would treat any result of 98% to a referendum/election involving millions of people as highly suspicious. Even for common-sense proposals there are always at least 15% or 20% of dissenters.

More so for someone like Hitler, who never legitimately received more than 37% of the popular vote in Germany. It never ceases to amaze me, the insistence of people to pin the blame for Hitler on the back of democracy. In a democratic country like Switzerland, a guy like Hitler would have had absolutely zero chance, and even in Germany he had to use force and intimidation.

Hitler did not need a vote in Austria, he just took that country. The fact that there wasn't popular opposition was just a bonus to him. I really can't sympathize with Austrians who worked under Hitler, never did anything against him at the time, and only years after the event, warn others about the threat of people like Hitler.

But, otherwise, I agree with the main point that freedoms should not be lost for the sake of an illusory state-provided protection.

Please visit my site for more information about my libertarian book. Thanks!

There was opposition - that's a complex issue

Most of the opposition were either socialists (cf. Austrian Civil War of 1934), Austro-Fascists (who are hard to categorize in modern terms, a mix of middle-class, agrarian, christian, anti-socialist, monarchist-leaning folks, so most likely big- and small government conservatives; and a minority of monarchists still loyal to the house of Habsburg. Pro-Hitler agents had some opposition leaders killed after the civil war, including as you might know, Austro-fascist chancellor Dollfuß.

Concerning your point on Switzerland, here's what i found on lewrockwell.com
http://www.lewrockwell.com/walker/walker32.html

You also have to keep in mind that very, very soon after the civil war, opposition to the NSDAP was not only dangerous, but deadly. Under the Austro-Fascist Dollfuß and Schuschnigg governments, there was already distrust and suspicion to every form of anti-german opposition (being pro german generally and pro unification with germany specifically was mostly common since WW1) and opposing voices were quickly deemed as socialists, which was true in many cases).

An interesting role in Austian politics played Karl Renner, who was chancellor during the first republic (between WW1 and WW2)- he was a "social-democrat" who had favorable sentiments toward the german NSDAP and a possible annexation with Germany, and partially worked to promote it. Notably though, that was like mentioned above, before the Austrian Civil War of 1934 which deepened the social and economic crisis in the country on all levels and is regarded by many austrian intellectuals across the board as the prelude to the rise of the NSDAP in Austria.

So...

Your saying that the lady in the video is either lying or just wrong about what she said referring to Hitler winning the election in Austria with 98% of the vote?

Hitler got 37% of the vote in a 3 way race, so that's a 'legitimate' win. I guess it's technically not a majority though, but if it's a democracy what do you do in a 3 way race?

Okay you can't sympathize with the Austrians because they did nothing against him? How do you know that? Maybe in general, like you said there was no popular opposition, but wouldn't that be the case here too? Or would you consider the Ron Paul movement 'popular' opposition?

Also, we should keep in mind that the history we know now hadn't happened yet back then, so they probably had a lot harder time seeing it coming.

that's absolutely true,

thank you for clarifying.

Not sure about Austria, but

Not sure about Austria, but Hitler lost the election in Germany and it wasn't until Hidenburg appointed him as leader, but not by vote of the people.

Do you have a source thatHitler was elected in Austria?

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

Not sure what your referring too...

But Hitler did win the 1933 election according to this wiki

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_federal_election,_March_...

It was not a majority win, but 37% wins a 3 way race. I think he did lose the first election a year before or something like that right? And he then burnt down the reichstag building or whatever to falsely gain support, which I'm guessing is what helped him win the 33' election. I hate to speculate on this without looking up all the facts, but I'm on my lunch break at work!

JBS, who would you rather

JBS, who would you rather believe a Woman who lived through the takeover of Hitler in Austria, or a bunch of professors who even have a hard time saying that the United States is a Constitutional Republic, but call it a democracy which is Mob Rule....

My father was born in 1921 and fought in WWII in the German Theatre, and much of his life was a Constitutional Conservative, not a republican.... He also spoke about the slipper slope we in this country are facing since the 1960's how the government is indoctrinating the youth in the school systems and colleges, you need to dig in deeper rather than relying on the internet.

He lost the election. He was

He lost the election. He was appointed, not elected, as Chancellor by Hindeburg in 1933.

Ever heard of google?

Thank you. That is what I was

Free with every request for "proof"
