We have to consider the possibility that he'll be WORSE... not merely 'like.' NAZI germany had to build itself up from ashes (part of their motivation, frankly), and never did have nukes to play with... meanwhile we're outspending most of the rest of the developed world combined while self-militarizing our citizenry and have enough heavy weaponry to essentially end humanity.
We can't even allow the possibility.
"To live in this process is absolutely not to be able to notice it—please try to believe me—unless one has a much greater degree of political awareness, acuity, than most of us had ever had occasion to develop. Each step was so small, so inconsequential, so well explained or, on occasion, ‘regretted,’ that, unless one were detached from the whole process from the beginning, unless one understood what the whole thing was in principle, what all these ‘little measures’ that no ‘patriotic German’ could resent must some day lead to, one no more saw it developing from day to day than a farmer in his field sees the corn growing. One day it is over his head.
"How is this to be avoided, among ordinary men, even highly educated ordinary men? Frankly, I do not know. I do not see, even now. Many, many times since it all happened I have pondered that pair of great maxims, Principiis obsta and Finem respice—‘Resist the beginnings’ and ‘Consider the end.’ But one must foresee the end in order to resist, or even see, the beginnings. One must foresee the end clearly and certainly and how is this to be done, by ordinary men or even by extraordinary men? Things might have. And everyone counts on that might.
"Your ‘little men,’ your Nazi friends, were not against National Socialism in principle. Men like me, who were, are the greater offenders, not because we knew better (that would be too much to say) but because we sensed better. Pastor Niemöller spoke for the thousands and thousands of men like me when he spoke (too modestly of himself) and said that, when the Nazis attacked the Communists, he was a little uneasy, but, after all, he was not a Communist, and so he did nothing; and then they attacked the Socialists, and he was a little uneasier, but, still, he was not a Socialist, and he did nothing; and then the schools, the press, the Jews, and so on, and he was always uneasier, but still he did nothing. And then they attacked the Church, and he was a Churchman, and he did something—but then it was too late."
I'm no fan of HRC, but in this particular comparison there is no valid argument trying to equate the two. One is likely too corporate for our long term health, but the other cheers on the possibility of violence, and lies in his speeches every 5 minutes on measured average (and likely to shorten as we get into actual debates next week) and has yet to demonstrate an EQ greater than that of a toddler, lashing out vindictively at the slightest (and oft illegitimately defined) offense... and here we are have an actual argument that could mean that the world's most top-heavy and over-inflated military might would be in those hands? To simply say that he might be 'the president we deserve' even as a self-insult, is inhumanely insular... because the damage won't be just to us.
