NO. We are the new Soviet Union.
I don't quite understand the whole 'America is just like the third reich' deal, we look more like the CCCP then anything.
You have the KGB (CIA) doing all their dirty business, You're slowly taking over other countries (Iraq) and you're forcing other countries to follow in your footsteps. 'If you're not with us, you're against us.' Sounds like a cold war slogan to me.
America = USSR/CCCP/Soviet Union
And just like the USSR, her citizens are the ones truly suffering.
To say America is a democracy these days is just stretching things too far. Consider:- Bush was not elected by the majority of people in the USA. Admittedly the turnout was low (you do, after all, get the government you deserve if you don't excercise your franchise) but George W didn't get a mandate. To do that more than fifty percent of the voters have to vote for you, and that didn't happen.
Now let's take a quick look at Germany in the 1930's and 40's as the Nazis reared their ugly heads. Here was a country that was finacially crippled with a massive budget deficit owing billions of dollars to the rest of the world. Just like the USA.
In the 1930's Germany was a country where the burning of the Reichstag, engineered by Hitler and his henchmen, was used to create external enemies and to exert internal control over the German people. Hitler then used the media to lie, frighten and decieve the population, allowing a bunch of vicious, extreme, right wing megalomaniacs to gain power. Just like the USA.
In the 1930's Hitler was surrounded by a group of unelected officials whose sole objective was to take control of Germany for their own ends and with the use of their military might, take control of the assets and prosperity of other, weaker countries. Just like the USA.
In 1939 Hitler embarked on a series of pre-emptive attacks on sovereign nations in the name of "freeing the people" of that country. Just like the USA.
In 1940 the German hierarchy started building special "camps" or detention centres in which to incarcerate and eventually execute those people considered to be "against" their regime. Just like the USA.
As Germany invaded the countries surrounding them during World War II, they found that far from having conquered the country and "liberated" the people, the people of that country formed nationalist "resistance" groups and used guerilla warfare to kill, harrass and slowly demoralise the occupying army. Just like the USA.

Also what the Op needs to realize is that not only are most of us armed, but a lot of us are former military with top notch training.
Semper may I ask why your banging on about the US military and personal firearms, this thread is about the US turning into a Nazi State and the answer is yes it is

We are angering more countries by the day with our ridiculous policies and our arrogant demeanor. Are we being set-up by the powers that be for an invasion? The rest of the world no longer sees the US as a Democracy spreading Peace power but more along the lines of a Dictating bully.

As far as armed Americans? You mean the ones with registered weapons that the government already knows about? How much ammo do you think they have? How many of those weapons are hunting rifles or shotguns? Would they stand a chance against heavily armored personel with bunker busters?

No llores por mi, Argentina....
I will tell you why. In spite of our current problems, we are still free and you aint and will never be.
This country has done much good also around the world.
Your people envy us and all that we stand for, if we are and have ALWAYS been so darn nasty, why do your people and the Mexicans head North?
This is not to flame you, but i think you have some splaining to do since you hear so much about us but dont live here?
Dont mistake a very strong dislike by Americans for our current moppet as un-American, we love this country, we just dont like the current policies dude. Make sure you go outside and tell your neighbors that i said there is nothing in the world like the United States of America. This is a wonderful country who has fallen on its ars but will eventually get back on its feet and once again head in the right direction, Si Dios Quiere!!!
