Here is what happened over 70 years ago because everyone remained silent. NEVER AGAIN!
'After the elections of March 5, 1933, the Nazis began a systematic takeover of the state governments throughout Germany, ending a centuries old tradition of local political independence. Armed SA and SS thugs barged into local government offices using the state of emergency decree as a pretext to throw out office holders and replace them with Nazi Reich commissioners. Political enemies were arrested by the thousands and put in hastily constructed holding pens. Old army barracks and abandoned factories were used as prisons. Once inside, prisoners were subjected to military style drills and harsh discipline. They were often beaten and sometimes even tortured to death. This was the very beginning of the Nazi concentration camp system.' Patriot Act vs. Hitler's Enabling Act http://www.customscorruption.com/hitler.htm
