So says you, a budding Stalin in the making. Who said this?
"As soon as by one's own propaganda even a glimpse of right on the other side is admitted, the cause for doubting one's own right is laid." - Adolf Hitler... though it could have been said by you!
Tolerance? Your philosophy has none. As for your and Rico's idiotic "all or nothing" scenarios, that's just nonsense.[Intact is one word, so keep "in" and "tact" intact please.]
Slavery returning? Why, yes, it has been back a number of times since the Civil War. National Socialism used it, as did the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. The nice little socialist nightmare in North Korea is using it now - for those they haven't yet starved to death. Hmmmm.... what's the common denominator? SOCIALISM! Everyone of those horror shows thought they were bringing your lovely socialism to the world.
Oh, you thought slavery meant black people ONLY. Actually, considering Hitler and Stalin's tens of millions of slave laborers, those alive today who remember being slaves are almost entirely white folks. All that due to socialism. Aren't you proud? If you don't like your progenitors, that's not my fault.
I completely understand why you would like to divert the focus of the shames perpetrated in this country, to monsters like Hitler, and Stalin, and the many atrocities that haunt humanity historically, but, let's keep the focus on what my post was about.
Conservatism...and what the U.S would be like had it been at the helm all these years, In THIS country. Not in Germany, not In Russia. We're not talking about madmen here. Were talking about an ideology that excludes, shuns, discriminates, hates, destroys and welcomes ignorance if it means clinging to the status quo.
Unfortunately, it even discriminates against it's own when they refuse to fall into line with the sheer stupidity and hatred of the majority. I know there are some good people in the Republican party determined to salvage and save the party they belong to, but after reading the words of people like you, 119, I can't help but wonder if they are dooming themselves to go down with ship, because if you haven't looked around lately, the ship is sinking.
At this point, making comparisons to historically socialist nations, like Germany and Russia, to scare the masses isn't going to cut it. Thanks to liberalism(education), people know better. It's better that you do what you have to do to keep your party, The "Grand ol Party", intact. Whatever that is at this point ;)
