It is interesting (and particularly disturbing) that The Department of Health and Human Services (used to be called Department of Health, Education, and Welfare and was renamed after the separate federal Department of Education was created in 1979), took over the duties of The Federal Security Agency when it was abolished in 1952. They also have their own "army" known as United States Public Health Service Commissioned Corps as a uniformed service, may also be militarized and considered a branch of the armed forces by an act of Congress, or by executive order by the President of the United States, not only in time of war, but also in “an emergency involving the national defense proclaimed by the President."

Mate, you're only scared because your paranoid.
And what was that about your grandmother in a mental institution. My grandmother said "what runs in the parents, runs in the children...".
But it's just a thought ? Seemed obvious to me.

My beef with Biden is that he is leaning more and more toward the side of more governmental controls, more government involvement, and more less civil liberties, very specifically his views on gun control, and the fact that he drafted anti terrorist legislation that was pretty much a duplicate of the Patriot act prior to 9/11, and complained that it was badly "watered down by anti-government conservatives and leftist civil libertarians".
Awake 1995 August, 22.
IN ITS September 26, 1945, issue, Consolation noted that future attempts might be made to revise history and deny what had happened. The article “Has Nazism Been Destroyed?” said:
“Propagandists think the people have short memories. It is their intention to erase past history, presenting themselves in the modern disguise of benefactors, their incriminating record being covered up.”
The magazine gave this perceptive warning: “Until Jehovah does fight Armageddon, Nazism will continue to raise its ugly head.”
Ragged lines of ragged gray Skeletons, they shuffle away
Shouting guards and smoking guns Will cut down the unlucky ones
I clutch the wire fence until my fingers bleed
A wound that will not heal
A heart that cannot feel
Hoping that the horror will recede
Hoping that tomorrow we'll all be freed
Sickness to insanity
Prayer to profanity
Days and weeks and months go by
Don't feel the hunger
Too weak to cry

Just because someone supports stricter gun laws, doesn't make them a Tyrant. What he's come out in support of is very light.
He supports Roe vs Wade, "favors diverting drug offenders out of the nation's prison system," supports states right to allow gay marriage....
How are you going to say he wants less civil liberties?
compared to who? The Republicans who want the Patriot Act and to restrict these civil liberties?
The ONLY civil liberty Republicans support is being able to walk into a store and pick up a weapon capable of killing masses of people with no background check. I'm sorry, that's not what I call civil liberties. Oh, they also openly support allowing corporations to have the freedom to walk all over you. Who needs minimum wage! That's government control! C'mon.
Whatever, you disagree with his policies. I get that. But to compare him to Hitler is asinine and makes you look foolish, nearly delusional.
Voted YES on prohibiting same-sex marriage. (Sep 1996)

One thing the U.S. has going for it that no other country has going for it (that hasn't really come into play yet) are the diverse amounts of states (50 lol) and their own cultures and state governments. If the nation was set up so that it was all governed under a national government and that regulated culture, we would have more of an issue.
For example, in Idaho, where I moved to, the state is heavily influenced by religion, patriarchy, etc... so there is no danger of any Christian genocide here... unless the whole state was taken out. But there are a lot of guns here.
