When Right-Wing Extremism Moves Mainstream

There are 4 comments on the www.npr.org story from Apr 6, 2010, titled When Right-Wing Extremism Moves Mainstream. In it, www.npr.org reports that:

Last May, about 30 people gathered at a resort in Jekyll Island, Ga., for a series of discussions about "increasing national instability" and President Obama's "socialized" policies. The island was chosen for symbolic reasons — the initial discussions about creating a Federal Reserve were held there in 1910 — and the attendees met to formulate a plan for bringing their own radical organizations together. "One of the interesting things about the meeting is how nondenominational it was," says Mark Potok. "There were Holocaust deniers there. There were anti-Semites. There were also people who have none of those feelings, who are all about the idea that the federal income tax is unconstitutional — people from the old[er] militia movements and so on."

By today's standards Nixon would be reviled as a 'liberal.' Yesterdays whackaloons are now considered mainstream. The nation is in serious trouble if these right wing lunatics ever gain power.

even if the federal goverment did away with the income tax it wouldnt solve anything! They spend more than we will ever take in from taxes. They are running the country on credit we as a nation are broke. The US as a credit worthy nation is going down hill quickly. when those who own our treasury notes dump them on the common market our money will be worthless. Just like germany before WW2
