The economy in the United States is in a collapse. The Capitalist system does not work anymore; banks have become more powerful than our politicians. The government now has a policy based around
Fear and Greed. The rich are getting
richer and more powerful, while the great masses of America wallow in poverty.
Must we continue to exist in this passive state, only living to serve the rich and powerful? Or do
we, the great masses, stand up against the policies of Fear, and Greed, and
God? We must break the bonds that
separate us, we must pull down the centers of Greed and Fear and we must pull
down the houses of God.
These borders are created to separate us into individuals where we can be controlled easier.
We must stand up, against the tyranny of the centers of Greed, and Fear, and God; quoting John Adams: “People should not fear
government, government should fear people.”
Once we stand up to Fear, to Greed, to God, we will become united!
This being said, I advocate the collapse of the Capitalist system and the foundation of the United Socialist Federal Republic, in which
the government will exist to serve the people.
Capitalism is Dead. We must put
it out of it’s misery and move on toward Socialism.

Don't forget how deregulated their industries are, how toxic their water supply is, how they can force any citizen to move at any time, how polluted their air is, how unhealthy their people are, and how rampant corruption is in their government. their economic numbers may be large, but it seems to me that they correlate, in a way, with their military. staggering numbers with very little quality and training. quantity over quality, thats their motto.
I know Wikipedia is not the most realible of sources for definitions, but it was the first hit and summed up what I see happening to our country very nicely.
Fascism (pronounced /ˈfæʃɪzəm/) is a radical and authoritarian nationalist political ideology. Fascists seek to organize a nation according to corporatist perspectives, values, and systems, including the political system and the economy. Fascism was originally founded by Italian national syndicalists in World War I who combined extreme Sorelian syndicalist political views along with nationalism. Though normally described as being on the far right, there is a scholarly consensus that fascism was influenced by both the left and the right.
Fascists believe that a nation is an organic community that requires strong leadership, singular collective identity, and the will and ability to commit violence and wage war in order to keep the nation strong. They claim that culture is created by the collective national society and its state, that cultural ideas are what give individuals identity, and thus they reject individualism. Viewing the nation as an integrated collective community, they see pluralism as a dysfunctional aspect of society, and justify a totalitarian state as a means to represent the nation in its entirety.
They advocate the creation of a single-party state. Fascist governments forbid and suppress opposition to the fascist state and the fascist movement. They identify violence and war as actions that create national regeneration, spirit and vitality.
Fascism rejects the concepts of egalitarianism, materialism, and rationalism in favor of action, discipline, hierarchy, spirit, and will. They oppose liberalism (as a bourgeois movement) and Marxism (as a proletarian movement) for being exclusive economic class-based movements. Fascists present their ideology as that of an economically trans-class movement that promotes ending economic class conflict to secure national solidarity. They believe that economic classes are not capable of properly governing a nation, and that a merit-based elite of experienced military persons must rule through regimenting a nation's forces of production and securing the nation's independence. Fascism perceives conservatism as partly valuable for its support of order in society but disagrees with its typical opposition to change and modernization. Fascism presents itself as a solution to the perceived benefits and disadvantages of conservatism by advocating state-controlled modernization that promotes orderly change while resisting the dangers to order in society of pluralism and independent initiative."
We do not have a government that exist for the benefit of it's citizens. We have one party masqerading as two that do the bidding of a Ruling Corporate Elite. With the Supreme Court ruling for "Citizens United" that Cabal now has the 'personhood". They can spend more money on elections than any individual or group and don't have to report how that money is spent. If this seems like hyperbole, I suggest you read this to understand that if very nearly happened in the 1930's, and the Bush family and there financial monster USB were at the center of it.
This is not conspiracy BS. This is documented in our own congressional record and the story was researced and backed up by British Public Radio.
Obama is just a kinder, gentler face for the same agenda. It makes it palatible for the liberals for a few years, then destroys anything that may be progress in the next campaign of fear and war mongering. Nazism has elements of Socialism in order to create a citizenry that operates for the benefit of the Nazi/Corporate elite. It uses all of the fear and hate tactics of Hitler's Third Reich so it embraces the racism and bigotry of conservatism.
If we are a socialist nation, it is corporate socialism that is the strongest element of what we get when it is all said and done.
isn't corporate socialism just corporatism? I agree, and while I (only feel) think that Obama isn't intentionally part of that system, I wouldn't disagree with saying that he is. How is a two party system that much better than a One party system? now that those two parties are institutionalized, it really is just a one party system.
~thanks for sharing that wiki entry, I like that nearly half of those qualities mentioned above are tactics that have been used over the last ten years to rally americans behind the governments cause.~
here we go..
as you read through that, consider these things we have been told.
"we need to stand together as Americans"(nationalism)
" the wars are a necessity for freedom"(afghanistan and IRAQ)
"if you don't agree, you are being un-american and unpatriotic" (attacks on dissent)
" mr. beck's and fox news attacks on progressivism and liberalism (anti-egalitarianism) and attack/ignore any class based argument for equality"
" again, we are all americans and the homeland is the most important thing (rejection of classes, unifying ALL americans under one label)"
Like I said, just about half. I don't know if I would go as far as to say we are a fascist government, but it is interesting the similarities between the two.
Please take time to read the piece on the Bush Family legacy of the attempted fascist coup. The Ford family and GE were two of the biggest cash contributors. When US troops arrived in Berlin at the end of WWII, they were able to repair their trucks from parts from many German military vehicles. They were both running Ford engines. The the finacial and very secret side of the Bush Cabal, USB run by the Walker family, as in Geo. Herbert Walker Bush had their US assets froven for two yrs during WWII because they wouldn't stop moving money for the Third Reich. This is not something frivolous. They have been planning this for generations. Pappy Bush remains a power behind the CIA as well as the most frequent Chairman of the Board of the Carlisle Group, the military investment fund that can only be joined by invitiation and controls some of our largest military suppliers. Cheney has spent several careers as SecDef, State Department and VP securing the channels of military procurment so there have been more contractors than US troops in Iraq since it began and Haliburton, KRB and their subsideraries have swindled many, many billions from US and the Iraqi people. It makes it easier to see how we have reached this point where its hard to call us anything else but a Fascist nation.
