History and Current Affairs

When Hitler wanted to take over Austria
He didn’t have to employ the mafia,
Instead he slyly gave the people a big thrill,
By mandating a national health care bill.
He then became everyone’s hero,
Even if he was a big zero.

Great orators have consistently led nations,
Their passion and charisma met with ovations,
It didn’t make much difference what they said,
Once Truth and common sense were dead.

    I do like your rants, they always make my blood run just a bit faster and make me want to do something. Just haven't figured out what yet! :)
