If you are, by stating "people do realize that Germany was a Democracy" suggesting that the US is a democracy, then you have flawed your argument. Not that I don't agree in principle with the comparison. The exception is that the US is not a democracy, it is a Federal Republic. The Federal Republic was chosen specifically to enable the limits of power, and to prevent emotional charged overthrows by dictators such as Hitler. The founding fathers talked of it specifically.
