    Its a known reality that in adversity people seem to turn to a 'higher power', such as a perceived god to help them with their troubles. Is this what is at work since the crash of 08' ? What is going on with this Far Right Swing ? Moderate Repubs are saying that Reagan wouldn't even be accepted in todays US far right politics.

    Simple. It's because they are finally realizing that "progressive" or other extreme Leftist policies don't work and lead to nothing but failure. The productive are sick of and/or can no longer support the unproductive.

    The evidence is clear. Let this be a lesson to all of you who are going to vote for Obama again. icon_wink.gif

    IMO, moderate Republican = wuss. Moderate just means they are too wishy-washy to take a stand on anything.

    Ive noticed in history that things seem to happen in trends. Like the age of Dictators in the '30s. The US even broke precedence and elected FDR four times....the closest we could get to a dictator.

    Well, in many cases far right is still left of your current president. icon_wink.gif

    Wrong, but thanks for playing.

    People tend to go for authoritarian politics during really bad economic times. Most of the time, this means they turn right. In extreme cases, this leads to Hitler and Mussolini. We're kind of in a Weimar Germany phase right now. It's more dangerous than people think, and it will get scarier still if the Republicans win in 2012.


    No, you're wrong. But that's OK. You make the common mistake of thinking, like most people do, that Naziism and Fascism are Right when actually it's Left. Anything with an authoritarian, overbearing government is Left-wing.

    Thanks for playing. We appreciate the effort. icon_wink.gif

    your funny !! ha ha !! (no harm done though) Your guilty of willingness to overlook reality of what players are responsible for and who profits from politics that lead to war for instance. The Far Right plays right into these forces hands, but since acknowledging that makes some like you uncomfortable you sluff reality off as some conspiracy.

    This is exactly why I keep pointing out that these Republican Candidates are supporting more war in an effort to get campaign money. This is extremely dangerous and could very well end up with us taking on yet another Economically devastating war, not to mention all the death and destruction war would produce.

    Excuse me !!!

    Its not the left pushing for control of our bedrooms, its the right and it is authoritarian in effect.

    Its not the left pushing for war, it is the authoritarian far right and very much because of their christian fundamentalist religious beliefs about Israel and the Middle East.

    There's no pressure from the left toward Naziism and Fascism, give us example in our current administration of where your coming from?

    Well I know our left wing government is trying to fool us that they are fiscally responcible like our Right Wing party has a long reputation of getting the bills paid off that the left created. So now the left is pushing the propaganda that if you give us even more time we will get the debt they created paid off and money in the bank.

    But we well know the only way Oz will get they're bills paid off, is to elect a conservative Government, so our left wing government is trying to fool us by seemingly fiscally responsible.

    Yes, I know that the right has been desperately pushing that lie for the past few years, but no one's buying it except idiots. Er, present company excepted, I suppose.


    It's almost painful to read these rubes writing such ridiculousness.

    To counteract the negative impact the fare left has had on the world. Lets not over look both socialism and communist both belong to the left wing politics. it's just that the Socialist belong to the right side of the left, and the communist belong to the left side of the left wing party. So the world is rebelling against all the damage the left and the greens have done, and are doing to the world.

    Give us some examples from Europe of this left your talking about, and some examples of how this left 'socialism' 'fascism' is showing up from the left in the US.

    No, it is very very frightening.

    I was watching the Rise of Adolf Hitler today and the description of the calculated steps Goebbels took are identical to the contemporary paradigm in US politics:

    Conservative forces are fomenting nationalism; hate is employed as a political tool; shrill language of emotion replaces any reasoned and moderate discussion. News is replaced by a constant barrage of propaganda of alternate"reality" that becomes true by sheer repetition - no matter how ridiculous.

    Buddy you sure got this correct, and its coming from the far right and while their leaders beat the war drums the sheeple just keep glossing over it as if it doesn't even exist, all the while condemning anyone who points it out as a conspiracy theorist.
