A certain man wanted to be the leader of his country.

He was a fairly articulate man, able to make his thoughts known in language the people could understand.

Although people did not know a lot about this guy, his infectious smile, expressions of concern and smooth way of getting his point across became legendary.

Economic times were tough. People were losing jobs, businesses were struggling and there was a feeling of malaise growing among the population.

But this man seemed so earnest in his desire to help them, and so persuasive with his rhetoric that many, many people considered him to be the one who would save their country from economic, political and morale collapse.

His ideas about how to help the nation learn, establish and propagate his plans were appealing.

He suggested some really intriguing policies and established some really "high" sounding bureaucracies, agencies and activities for the people.

This ambitious man had a plan to make his philosophy of government a reality, and he set about putting his plan into action.

He encouraged the formation of a youth movement to help young people feel a part of the process.

He made promises of jobs for people who had lost their jobs, security for those who had jobs, money for those who had no money and rewards for those who went along with his great plans.

Being concerned for the safety of the citizens, he instigated gun control and took weapons from the average citizen, so they would not attack and possible harm each other.

He spearheaded the destruction of pre-born life and advocated the use of embryos, fetuses and failed pregnancies, especially those of certain ethnic groups, for biological research.

His desire to have a healthy citizenry led him to promise a first rate health care system that would take care of everybody who did not exceed the government recognized viable life-span.

This ambitious man promised that all would have a living wage as long as they supported him and his political agenda.

He promised to restore respect for the nation at home and around the world, admitting the follies of the past and reaching out even to fact, embracing them.

The media helped him accomplish his goals by emphasizing how helpful they would be and by writing disparagingly about those who opposed him.

He said that he sought hope and change for the nation.

Little by little he seized control of government power, department by department, bureaucracy by bureaucracy.

The country was the most educated, the most cultured country in history. It was full of original music, art, museums, hospitals, laboratories, and universities.

What sort of leader was this man?

Who was he?

His name was Adolf Hitler.

In a shorter time span than just two terms of the U. S. presidency, less than six years, he was rounding up citizens, abrogating its laws, turning children against parents, and neighbors against neighbors.

In the end, he was killing citizens who opposed him.

Aren't you glad that The United States of America has no one like that in leadership?

In the end, he killed himself. Perhaps that's too much to hope for in our case?

Mark: Probably. I sure wish he would find some way to go away, though.

Obama is physically and spiritually doomed, he just doesn't know it yet. You can't declare war on God Himself and win.

I agree with Shoprat. Obama is on a path of self destruction unless he turns himself and our Nation back toward God. If he was wise, he would instruct those who talk about him as though he was the messiah, that he definitely is not and would point them to the True Messiah. It appears he loves the adulation. That is dangerous. mom2

"Will You Follow?"

Christ, yes. Mr. Obama, no.

"And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me" (Luke 9:23.)
