Gregor Strasser Quote

“We are socialists, we are enemies, mortal enemies of the present capitalistic economic system with its exploitation of the economically weak, with its unjust wages, with its immoral evaluation of individuals according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and achievement, and we are determined under all circumstances to abolish this system!”

Differing concepts of socialism have been around for a long time. Early settlers of North America tried establishing socialistic utopias only to fail. Karl Marx needed an enemy / villain to champion his theocratic obsession. Marx redefined what capitalism was/is by such manners and techniques as exchanging the concept of wealth creation for profit (as an accounting ploy). Wealth creation was based on tangibles while Marx's (crony capitalism) focused on such issues as funny money (debt, notes, etc.).  Stalin, Hitler, Mao, etc. followed Marx's successful strategy of lying long enough so that people will believe. Today's socialists (communists, fascists, progressives, etc.) continue to change the meanings of words, morality, concepts and otherwise to further eliminate liberty, inalienable rights, individual sovereignty and advance their enslaving tyranny.

Yes both Strasser and Hitler were convicted of high treason, Beer Hall Putsch, Strasser only 9 months, Hitler 5 years. if only they had been hung. The Weimar Republic might have continued. The Treaty of Versailles was too harsh, Mainly because of the French hatred after WWI, they suffered the most, the reparations demanded in raw materials too high. The socialist reforms in Germany during the Weimar Republic, their welfare state, too many freebees, with the Market crash of 1930 in the US, the flow of money to Germany stopped. There is also the Holy Roman Empire fueling the discontent among Germans. Their party system was in shambles, The harsh treaty with Russia, and Versailles only fueled the fire. Now the same factions are at play in the current state of US affairs. Rogue Governors in far-left states as Oregon, seeking to imprison Republican legislators who refuse to vote. To say nothing of Virginia's dictator wanting to weaponize the police and sheriff dept, even the National Guard. Dark days are coming, Yet President Trump continues to undo the socialist polices unleashing the Opportunity and Prosperity. 
WWG1WGA to MAGA to KAG Trump 2020 is our only hope !
