    *Take the three minutes required to read this. Maybe he is wrong.
    if he is right? *

    *David Kaiser is a respected historian whose published works have
    covered a broad range of topics, from European Warfare to American
    League Baseball. Born in 1947, the son of a diplomat, Kaiser spent
    childhood in three capital cities: Washington D.C. , Albany , New
    York ,
    and Dakar , Senegal .. He attended Harvard University , graduating
    in 1969 with a B.A. in history. He then spent several years more at
    Harvard, gaining a PhD in history, which he obtained in 1976. He
    in the Army Reserve from 1970 to 1976. *

    *He is a professor in the Strategy and Policy Department of the
    States Naval War College. He has previously taught at Carnegie
    Williams College and Harvard University . Kaiser's latest book,
    The Road
    to Dallas, about the Kennedy assassination, was just published by
    Harvard University Press. *

    *Dr. David Kaiser **

    *History Unfolding **

    *I am a student of history. Professionally, I have written 15
    books on
    history that have been published in six languages, and I have studied
    history all my life. I have come to think there is something
    monumentally large afoot, and I do not believe it is simply a banking
    crisis, or a mortgage crisis, or a credit crisis. Yes these exist,
    they are merely single facets on a very large gemstone that is
    only now
    coming into a sharper focus. *

    *Something of historic proportions is happening. I can sense it
    I know how it feels, smells, what it looks like, and how people
    react to
    it. Yes, a perfect storm may be brewing, but there is something
    happening within our country that has been evolving for about ten to
    fifteen years. The pace has dramatically quickened in the past two. *

    *We demand and then codify into law the requirement that our banks
    massive loans to people we know they can never pay back? Why? *

    *We learned just days ago that the Federal Reserve, which has
    little or
    no real oversight by anyone, has "loaned" two trillion dollars
    (that is
    $2,000,000,000,000) over the past few months, but will not tell us to
    whom or why or disclose the terms. That is our money. Yours and mine.
    And that is three times the $700 billion we all argued about so
    strenuously just this past September. Who has this money? Why do they
    have it? Why are the terms unavailable to us? Who asked for it? Who
    authorized it? I thought this was a government of "we the people,"
    loaned our powers to our elected leaders. Apparently not. *

    *We have spent two or more decades intentionally de-
    industrializing our
    economy.. Why? *

    *We have intentionally dumbed down our schools, ignored our
    history, and
    no longer teach our founding documents, why we are exceptional,
    and why
    we are worth preserving. Students by and large cannot write, think
    critically, read, or articulate. Parents are not revolting,
    teachers are
    not picketing, school boards continue to back mediocrity. Why? *

    *We have now established the precedent of protesting every close
    election (violently in California over a proposition that is so
    controversial that it simply wants marriage to remain defined as
    one man and one woman. Did you ever think such a thing possible
    just a
    decade ago?) We have corrupted our sacred political process by
    unelected judges to write laws that radically change our way of life,
    and then mainstream Marxist groups like ACORN and others to turn our
    voting system into a banana republic. To what purpose? *

    *Now our mortgage industry is collapsing, housing prices are in free
    fall, major industries are failing, our banking system is on the
    of collapse, social security is nearly bankrupt, as is Medicare
    and our
    entire government. Our education system is worse than a joke (I teach
    college and I know precisely what I am talking about) - the list is
    staggering in its length, breadth, and depth.. It is potentially
    1929 x
    ten...And we are at war with an enemy we cannot even name for fear of
    offending people of the same religion, who, in turn, cannot wait
    to slit
    the throats of your children if they have the opportunity to do so. *

    *And finally, we have elected a man that no one really knows anything
    about, who has never run so much as a Dairy Queen, let alone a
    town as
    big as Wasilla , Alaska . All of his associations and alliances
    are with
    real radicals in their chosen fields of employment, and everything we
    learn about him, drip by drip, is unsettling if not downright scary
    (Surely you have heard him speak about his idea to create and fund a
    mandatory civilian defense force stronger than our military for use
    inside our borders? No? Oh, of course. The media would never play
    for you over and over and then demand he answer it. Sarah Palin's
    pregnant daughter and $150,000 wardrobe are more important.) *

    *Mr. Obama's winning platform can be boiled down to one word:
    Change. Why? *

    *I have never been so afraid for my country and for my children as
    I am
    now. *

    *This man campaigned on bringing people together, something he has
    never, ever done in his professional life. In my assessment, Obama
    divide us along philosophical lines, push us apart, and then try to
    realign the pieces into a new and different power structure.
    Change is
    indeed coming. And when it comes, you will never see the same nation
    again. *

    *And that is only the beginning.. *

    *As a serious student of history, I thought I would never come to
    experience what the ordinary, moral German must have felt in the
    mid-1930s In those times, the "savior" was a former smooth-talking
    rabble-rouser from the streets, about whom the average German knew
    to nothing. What they should have known was that he was associated
    groups that shouted, shoved, and pushed around people with whom they
    disagreed; he edged his way onto the political stage through great
    oratory. Conservative "losers" read it right now. *

    *And there were the promises. Economic times were tough, people were
    losing jobs, and he was a great speaker. And he smiled and frowned
    waved a lot. And people, even newspapers, were afraid to speak out
    fear that his "brown shirts" would bully and beat them into
    Which they did - regularly. And then, he was duly elected to office,
    while a full-throttled economic crisis bloomed at hand - the Great
    Depression. Slowly, but surely he seized the controls of government
    power, person by person, department by department, bureaucracy by
    bureaucracy. The children of German citizens were at first,
    to join a Youth Movement in his name where they were taught
    exactly what
    to think. Later, they were required to do so. No Jews of course, *

    *How did he get people on his side? He did it by promising jobs to
    jobless, money to the money-less, and rewards for the military-
    industrial complex. He did it by indoctrinating the children,
    gun control, health care for all, better wages, better jobs, and
    promising to re-instill pride once again in the country, across
    Europe ,
    and across the world. He did it with a compliant media - did you know
    that? And he did this all in the name of justice and .... . ..
    And the people surely got what they voted for. *

    *If you think I am exaggerating, look it up. It's all there in the
    history books. *

    *So read your history books. Many people of conscience objected in **
    *1933 and were shouted down, called names, laughed at, and ridiculed.
    When Winston Churchill pointed out the obvious in the late 1930s
    seated in the House of Lords in England (he was not yet Prime
    he was booed into his seat and called a crazy troublemaker. He was
    right, though. And the world came to regret that he was not
    listened to. **

    *Do not forget that Germany was the most educated, the most cultured
    country in Europe. It was full of music, art, museums, hospitals,
    laboratories, and universities. And yet, in less than six years (a
    shorter time span than just two terms of the U. S. presidency) it was
    rounding up its own citizens, killing others, abrogating its laws,
    turning children against parents, and neighbors against
    neighbors.. All
    with the best of intentions, of course. The road to Hell is paved
    them. *

    *As a practical thinker, one not overly prone to emotional
    decisions, I
    have a choice: I can either believe what the objective pieces of
    evidence tell me (even if they make me cringe with disgust); I can
    believe what history is shouting to me from across the chasm of seven
    decades; or I can hope I am wrong by closing my eyes, having another
    latte, and ignoring what is transpiring around me.. *

    *I choose to believe the evidence. No doubt some people will scoff at
    me, others laugh, or think I am foolish, naive, or both. To some
    perhaps I am. But I have never been afraid to look people in the
    eye and
    tell them exactly what I believe-and why I believe it. *

    *I pray I am wrong. I do not think I am. Perhaps the only hope is our
    vote in the next elections. *

    *David Kaiser Jamestown , Rhode Island United States*
