    -All propaganda has to be popular and has to accommodate itself to the comprehension of the least intelligent of those whom it seeks to reach.

    -The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed the subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty.

    -How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think.

    -I use emotion for the many and reserve reason for the few.

    -If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.

    -It is not truth that matters, but victory.

    -Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.

    -Those who want to live, let them fight, and those who do not want to fight in this world of eternal struggle do not deserve to live.

    -Universal education is the most corroding and disintegrating poison that liberalism has ever invented for its own destruction.

    No, but I wouldn't be surprised if the two are related.

    You are correct - it was Hitler.

    Scary how many of his statements could come from today's media and political candidates.

    Get Rid of Portrait

    Um, could we have the political quote quiz without the large full-color portrait of that evil man up here on this website? Somebody could see it here and take it the wrong way.

    Eh. I don't see why we can't be civil about it. If someone sees it over your shoulder, you can explain.

    Absolutely not! Everyone know that firearms are approved of by all!

    Oh, I assure you I wan't trying to be uncivil (is that even a word). Please don't think I was. I even put a LOL after my "second". Believe me, after the heated discussion over CC vs OC on another thread over the past few days, I have no desire to stir anything up.

    I just think the photo might give someone the wrong idea about this site, group, etc. Far beyond what I can explain to them. Some things people just won't believe. "Yes, I carry a weapon. No, I am not a skinhead, weirdo, nor a militia member. I do not suffer from paranoid dillusions."

    "What did you say? Oh, that wasn't you? Must have been the voices in my head." !LOL!

    I am quite enjoying the quote quiz. However, I must admit to cheating. I have a couple of good quote websites bookmarked.

    How is it our fault if someone only sees what they want to see? If they read this thread, there isn't anything glorifying Hitler... If they don't read, then there isn't anything I can do about that.

    I agree 100%. I just, get ready.......,"fear" getting called to the mat by some half-wit snitch who walks behind me and reports me to my superiors. No, I can not reason or explain it away. They wouldn't only be mad about the Hitler pic (and no they would not read the site to see it is not glorifying him). They would be made that I am using a work computer for non-work stuff. Not that there is anything wrong with the site. However, they would be correct in that I should not be viewing any of this stuff while on work time, on a work computer. That is the policy and it is not my "right" to use them for personal reasons.

    I was not trying to start a fuss. I say keep posting whatever you choose. If I get concerned enough about what might be seen over my shoulder then I will just stop reading the forum at the office.

    Again, I am not trying to start a fuss. We are all adults here.

    I didn't realize you were reading from work. I do see what you're saying. I think that with the more direct no work stuff, it's marked NSFW or what have you. That doesn't seem to come up often, though.

    I only read this site from home. When I'm on campus, I'm in class. I hardly ever go to campus just to use a computer.
