....plebiscite a direct vote in which an entire electorate is asked to either accept or reject a particular proposal. Examples: voting on where the company Holiday party will be held, which color jackets should be worn in certain real Estate offices, or who wants to be a Nazi! On this day in 1935 a plebiscite in Saarland showed that 90.3% of those voting wished to join Nazi Germany. In all fairness, except for the ethnic cleansing part, this plebiscite sounded good.
The Nazis promised strong, authoritarian government in lieu of effete parliamentary republicanism, civil peace, radical economic policy (including full employment), restored national pride (principally by repudiating the Versailles Treaty), and racial cleansing, partly implemented via the active suppression of Jews and Marxists, all in name of national unity and solidarity, rather than the partisan divisions of democracy.
Have a good day, fight for what is right and shower daily, no matter what your ethnicity.
