Don’t wait for a Hitler

"In my previous post on guns, I noted that the second amendment protected, not created, all rights to bear arms because of the mindset that the people, not the State, should have the power.

Many in the liberty or 'pro-gun' movement decently understand this principle. That a disarmed people are an enslaved people. But when they vocalize their perspective they make a simple mistake that I think ought to be eradicated from the libertarian or constitutional conservative message.

Don’t wait for a Hitler to call your government tyrannical. We will never have a Hitler. Hitler was German. If we had a Hitler, the people would rightly revolt. We have Bush and Obama. They salute the American flag, therefore most Americans think these presidents, “while imperfect,” are not the enemy. If only the Germans had rejected this “patriotic” mindset during Hitler’s reign.

because I think he makes an excellent point. We don't have to argue that we're stocking up on firearms in case of a future tyrant like Hitler - tyranny is already here.
