Fascism Fascism Fascism http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fascism
Kevin Drum's Blog is appropriate to this thread: "The modern GOP is the party of Newt Gingrich, Tom DeLay, Karl Rove, George Bush, Dick Cheney, John McCain, and Sarah Palin. It's not just off the rails. It doesn't even know where the rails are anymore."
Violent fascism is a real danger where otherwise thinking people pledge loyalty to a failed political party, where the party leadership plays toward the totalitarian tendencies of its loyalists' conservative morality in order to bolster their own fleeting power, and where the party loyalists maintain loyalty regardless of the fact that these loyal followers' conservative ideologies contradict the emptying ideology and actions of their increasingly Machiavellian leaders.
Now, please explain again why the GOP, as personified by McCain/Palin and exemplified by the Iraq War and the Next Great Crash, gets your vote.
