The United States, Britain, and France did not go to war with Hitler because he Socialized health care. No - we went to War because he had secret prisons, because he tortured the prisoners in those prisons and because he practiced genocide. We now have the rabid right attacking Obama’s health plan by comparing him to Hitler.
We are told to follow the money when investigating crime, so I ask who will profit by maintaining the status quo? Corporations! Mussolini described Fascism as corporatism.
The base of the Republican Party is the Christian right. These are Christians that cherry-pick the Jesus that suits their bias. No these are not the followers of the Jesus who tells the story of the Good Samaritan, these Christian’s follow the Jesus that cursed the fig tree for not producing fruit to satisfy his hunger. These are not the Christians that follow Jesus when he said, “Let him who is with out sin cast the first stone.” No these are righteous Christians who gather stones to lob at homosexuals, Muslims, feminists and shoot abortion doctors.
Religious faith is for those who have lost faith in themselves. They must be told what to do. This is why these mentally challenged ‘faithful’ are so easily led by the nose to act against their own interest. They need strong leaders like Stalin, Hitler and George W. Bush to herd them with hate and fear. This is why a liberally minded person like Obama makes them angry: he ask them to think about future Possibilities – to step out of the ‘lock-step’ march of the fascist. They can’t think!
