Does any of this look or sound familiar?

On February 28, 1933--the day after the Reichstag fire--President Hindenburg and Chancellor Hitler invoked Article 48 of the Weimar Constitution, which permitted the suspension of civil liberties in a time of national emergency.

A Decree which gave Government Complete & TOTAL CONTROL & removed the following rights from the people:

Free expression of opinion and of the press, Right of assembly & association, Right to privacy of postal and electronic communications, Protection against unlawful searches and seizures, Individual property rights
States' right of self-government. Also do NOT forget :
A supplemental decree created the SA (Storm Troops) and SS (Special Security) Federal police agencies.
'Aka Homeland Security. 
Sound familiar?
Thus, emergency orders of February 28, 1933, read:
"Paragraphs 114, 115, 117, 118, 123, 124, and 153 in the German Reich Constitution are provisionally null and void. Accordingly, the restrictions on personal freedom and the right to express opinions freely, including freedoms of the press, association, and assembly; monitoring of letters, cables, and telephone calls, searches of homes, and expropriation of property, and restrictions thereon, are hereby revoked within the limits previously stipulated in the law.
