Joseph Goebbels writes an article for Der Angriff, a Nazi propaganda newspaper, explaining why it's important for Germans to vote for Adolf Hitler. His basic argument is that the Weimar Republic has failed to make things better for the German people but Hitler knows how to solve Germany's problems.

According to Goebbels:

"Adolf Hitler's goal is the union of all Germans. He experienced our people's need not in books, rather as a person born Austrian whose entire earlier life was filled with the longing for a Greater German Reich. ...

The System [Nazi term for the Weimar Republic] has had 13 years to prove that it does not even recognize the problem, much less solve it. Its policies have divided the people into two classes.

The economy is in anarchy, the finances are in a desperate state, and millions and millions of German workers, farmers and the middle class are the victims of this fateful course. Countless people have despaired of the future of the German people and have fallen into hopelessness."
