Most people do not think, otherwise we wouldn't have liberals. Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large numbers.They elect people like Obama and Pelosi.

    Ahhh yes, King George the torturer, Mr. Obamunist Goodwrench the assassin, and the rest of the occupying statist theocracy infesting this once free land's foundational altruistic motto. The original foundation of natural law and acts such as eliminating the central bank exposes this statement as a most heinous lie.

    And in every country where fear was used, and is used, to control people, it always ends up failing, with many dead, sad, that so many forget history.

    Totalitarianism in a nut shell. Human beings are no less able to be domesticated than farm animals once we give up thinking and the right of self-defense. We are told what to think -- and any who question or do their own thinking are dismissed by the oppressed and unthinking masses. Funny how we admit that Hitler used Nazi propaganda to keep the people in line, and yet we never think it happens here...

    Hitler was right wing, like "jim" and "Mike" and "Kimo". You lot would have voted for him.

    No bigger liar and mass murderer than the most infamous right winger there ever was.

    Jim from Austin needs to be less one sided and open his eyes to how Hitler's statement really does apply to all of us in the American system. Left, right, whatever, many politicians count on the ignorance of Americans.

    Fascism is only to the right of Communism  both are authoritarian and Leftist.  True Liberalism is at the top, authoritarianism is at the bottom.  To the right of leftism is Republicanism, rule of law, not men, not pure democracy but representative republicanism.  Remember that the Nazis were 'nationalist socialist democrats' with Russian communism as their enemy, but they were still socialist democrats which eventually led to voting for dictatorship.
