As a law abiding US citizen with no arrest record, I have a constitutional right to buy a firearm. Do you object to any ID checks there?

Here is a very scary step towards full-blown totalitarianism. (I don't prefer to use the word fascism.) Notice how it's Obama who is doing and defending the new 21st century goose-step...

Good link Mario, that is definitely a seriously egregious stain on Obams.I have tremendous respect for Hedges, Chomsky, and especially Ellsberg. One point of slight disagreement :that Obama is way worse than Bush.He is bad enough.You should read Naomi Wolf 's "The End of America :Letter of Warning To A Young Patriot ", she outlines the steps common to facsist shifts from democratic societies to authoritarian dictatorships /oligarchies.Yes when you go full circle left or right they meet at totalitarianism and the labels become irrelevant.

Nobody even brings up the ouster of ZELAYA in Honduras on Obama 's watch, which is absolutely more of the same old imperialism.I t used to be a major lefty issue, now few seem to notice or care.Economic and social issues drown it out.There, there are greater differences.Of all the stuff Obams gets criticized for by Republicans, civil.liberties and imperilalism are seldom mentioned.They have even more hardline positions most of the time.They claim Obama is an appeaser going around appologizing for stuff.They take offense when you point out the truth of our imperialism and extoll American exceptionalism.Mitt is already taking a tone of a return to Bush style Cowboy Diplomacy.

To the original topic, both voter suppression and union busting /vilification are among the steps of a fascist shift.It is NOT the dems doing this stuff ( since Jim Crow and the dixiecrat defection) .Both lame parties have moved the ball in a rightward direction one side is much more aggressive, proactive, unmitigated, and well funded by extremist ideologues in their efforts to fortify their power in the wake of rapidly changing demographics.The discourse has been completely distorted and dumbed down by their agents,right wing think tanks and the media outlets disseminating their propaganda, another component of. Fascist. shifts.
