The reason Hitler was able to ascend to power was because of the SS. More spicifically because they protected the enigmatic leader from harm by assassins than they projected an image or bulllied opponents.
George Washington today would not be welcome in the military he led. Washington, Jefferson, Madison and Franklin would not be welcome in most universities, corporations or local and state governments; they certainly would not be welcome in the national government they chartered.
They found a nation and they chartered a government to protect it. That project has failed. The charter is up.
Who is greater Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Franklin or Hitler. The answer is they are all equals and all brothers. They fought the timeless fight.
