The GOP Chooses Fascism
By Bob Burnett
After Barack Obama's convincing win over John McCain, it was clear the Republican Party was at a crossroads. The Grand Old Party had to decide what ideology was going to guide it in the post-Bush era: a philosophy rooted in conservative ideas or a credo based upon fear and anger. Unfortunately for America, Republicans turned to the dark side and chose the road to fascism.
By "fascism" I mean a national political movement that rejects democracy, embraces nativism and racism, and promotes violence. The Ku Klux Klan is an American fascist movement. The German Nazis were another example.
The Republican dance with fascism dates to the Nixon era when the GOP recruited Southern Democrats alienated by passage of the Civil Rights Act. When George W. Bush first ran for President, rabidly racist and sexist groups became major campaign players. The Bush White House encouraged nativism with its imagery of America the Christian nation leading a worldwide crusade against infidels. And, Bush fed distrust of reason - another hallmark of fascism - with his fear-based propaganda and anti-science agenda.
Since Obama's election, we've seen the Republican Party tighten its embrace of fascism. First, they made the decision to oppose whatever Obama proposed without offering contrasting ideas; their hope was that the President would fail and this would work to their advantage. Republican leaders rooted for a collapse of the American financial system, wanted the current recession to be as severe as the Great Depression, so their Party could take advantage of the chaos.
Second, in the absence of strong internal leadership, the GOP looked to demagogues - Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity - to represent the Party. Republicans adopted Nazi leader Joseph Goebbels' "big lie" tactic, where Party spokespeople could say anything so long as it advanced their cause. Limbaugh denied there is a healthcare crisis, called Obama a racist and compared him to Hitler. Beck, Hannity, and O'Reilly took the same path as Limbaugh and claimed the Democrats' healthcare bill supports euthanasia.
Third, the GOP embraced nativism and racism by supporting border vigilantes, opposing the Supreme Court nomination of Sonja Sotomayor, and spreading lies about Obama's birth. In effect, the Republican Party rebranded itself as the White People's Party.
And finally, in their advocacy of disruptions at Congressional town hall meetings, Republicans have explicitly supported violence. Beginning with the lie that the Obama Administration wants to suspend the second amendment and deny Americans the right to bear arms,Glen Beck has promoted armed resistance. Falsely claiming Obama has "surrounded himself by Marxists his whole life," Beck proclaimed the Obama era is reminiscent of ""the early days of Adolf Hitler" and suggested America is rapidly becoming " a totalitarian state." The Republican Party and closely allied lobbyists promoted thuggery that disrupted town hall meetings. Now the Republican Party teeters on the edge of the signature tactic of fascist movements: sponsoring paramilitary groups.
First : The Obama has surround himself with socialist and racists.
Second: Your statement that the right has accused him of being a Marxist is totally absurd they have pointed out that he is and always will be a socialists there is a major difference.
Third: Obama has aligned himself with more racist than the right has. If you checked out the facts you would find out that Obama and his racist socialists are the ones that caused all the meetings.
Fourth: At no time has socialism ever worked.
Keep on spouting your false statements you are giving me a good laugh at your ignorance

Socialism has worked pretty good for the last approx. 140 years in the United States. The U.S. Constitution, the most Liberal instrument ever created in government. You don't think that "We the People" is not a Social Contract between the People of the United States? Wake up, read the Constitution, it reads "We the People" not I the Moron. By being a Liberal/Socialist Country, "We the People" recognize that anyone is welcome to live the so-called "American Dream", even Capitalists and Tory Republicans. The U.S. Constitution is great.

Lou, what kind of Country do you think it is. Do you think it is a Fascist or Republican Country? Maybe Capitalist Country, ruled by Big Business or a Republic/Commonwealth ran by "We the People". Remember that the U.S. Constitution was declared by "We The People" of the United States in order to form a more perfect "UNION". Union is a collective word meaning a group bonded together for a common reason. Socialist like Liberal is not an un-American word, like Conservative/Fascism.

Clarify the 2nd Amendment

15 seconds ago.

pedro, lets stick to Guns, right now.

Clarify the 2nd Amendment shared a status.

Should Gun owners be required to have liability insurance?
Home owners insurance will probably cover a weapons (Gun) accident in the Home or on Property. The solution in question would be to treat a weapon that is produced with a serial number like an automobile with a Gun owners title that would be updated with any sale or change of owner. This would be mandated by Federal Law and processed by "The People" the State. After a certain manufactured date, possession of a untitled defined weapon would be a 1st degree misdemeanor, a second would be a 3rd degree felony and possession of multi untitled weapons would be a 3rd degree felony, first offense. A tax on each transaction of course would got to "The People" the State. Liability insurance would have to be proven with a background check on each sale or transfer. This can be done at an authorized FFL licensed dealer, for a fee of course. There is many possibilities in future Gun Safety Laws.

Your President just admitted on National tv that this country is headed for socialism under his administration and so did one of the Black female congress women in her address to congress. You need to keep up on the news and quit smoking that wacky weed. Check out what the democratic party stand for----Shall we say Socialism??

What do you think is the cost of human life and injury do to Gun violence? If you fix a leaky roof, does that fix the complete problem for the future, NO! The roof will probably leak sometime in the future again. What we have in Gun Control Safety is laughable as it is now. Be objective to the issue, don't obstruct and impede a solution. Stand for a remedy, the only persons libel to car insurance and liability is a person that owns an automobile, this can be applied to owners of Guns. Look at the objective side of the issue, not the NRA side. The NRA is a Gun lobby organization that is paid to represent Gun sales, not Gun safety. We the People must over-come these paid lobbyist groups and speak up for the security of our fellow citizens.
