Fellow Travelers-

I am attempting to write my next piece. It will be about the state of fascism in America, specifically in reference to the Bush regime. I would like response to a poll with 5 possibilities:
1. They are fascists in the establishment mode, (i.e. 1927-1932 Germany)
2. They are failed fascists, they tried and failed.
3. They are established fascists with no need of denial.
4. They are established fascists hiding in plain sight giving deniability.
5. Other than the above, please post.

Thanks-
A Proud Liberal

I chose #4 as it pretty much sums up the terrorists that run our country pretty precisely. They can compare others to Fascism, but if one reads their lips(Minds) they are speaking about themselves.

I'm going with #4. We have our own knowledge of what makes up a fascist regime, and also we have Shoeless's thread in the Poli-Talk forum, entitled

Bush's Lies, http://tvnewslies.org/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=2670

which now runs to 14 pages. We can find example after example of the fourteen points of fascism, and each one is being accepted by the sheeple as a form of protection! :roll:

Talk about foxes in the hen house! :roll:

I see them as hiding in plain sight. What I can't figure out is why people buy their lies? Why? Are people too lazy to think, or so used to being talked down to they never question?

Can anyone else figure it out?

The way this is worded, it could be one or 4, that is if I am reading this correctly.

I hate to be nit picky, but they cannot be fasicism.

They are fasicists hiding in plain sight, giving denability while attempting to establish fascism. They have not yet failed, nor have they yet fully succeded. I hope that all go's well for us, and they do not succede.

I think they are trying to succeed therefore they are in the "establishing" mode. There are those of us who see through the facade and are trying to warn the others before it is too late. It ain't over till the fat lady sings, and I'll go down swinging before I sing!

denability - is this supposed to be deniability? If not I am not sure of the meaning.

Fellow Travelers-
Thanks for input. I will be writing the article with the 14 points of fascism and comparing them to these four possible states in America. I have just posted an article I wrote prior to join the board entitled, “Who is the most fascist like, al Qaeda or the Bush Regime?” This is will serve as my jumping off point.
Keep Up the Good Fight,
APL
