Despite what some people would have you think the German people voted for Hitler and the National Socialist Party in 1933. They liked the jumped up Austrian Corporal with a penchant for his young niece naked. So, when did the German people lose the ability to remove the party from power? Assuming they decided they didn't like a tee-totaler with a dodgy moustache annexing Austria (though most did like it...) at what point were the Gestapo and the laws of the land such that it was more or less out of the hands of the German people? In addition to that - when do you think the German population would have voted out the Nazis if they had been able? Would it have been before Poland? After? After France, but before Russia? Only when they started losing? Would there have been a poor turnout while they would "wait and see" if the Russia excursion was going well? I can't believe the party would have been voted out in 1941, or even 1942 as the government had been incredibly succesful, the majority of the population was NOT being deported/shot and Russia was seen as Germany's natural enemy. Although would this have been purely due to brainwashing/Nazi youth?
