comment Was there a constitutional mechanism to overturn the election of Adolf Hitler?
Sorry, your starting point is wrong. Communists emerged in Germany in 1918/1919 and were promptly crushed by pre-fascist groups (Freikorps etc.). Those pre-fascist groups were not a reaction to the communists. There would have been fascism without comunism.

Sorry, but mentioning Obama in an answer on Hitler just doesn't fly. Also, by 1934 (when Hindenburg died and Hitler became President) the only party allowed was the NSDAP.

comment How did the US/South Vietnam lose the Vietnam war?
@DVK: The Phoenix program killed between 26,000 and 41,000 people. A great way to win the hearts of the people. :-(

comment What was the most recent country to be conquered and dissapear
@fdb: The SU did not permit anything in the GDR after 1989-11-09 - they simply let the people decide their own fate and could not have stopped them even if it wanted to.
