A 12 Term Republican Congressman in Dist 3 has been ousted by the Tea Party. Cliff Stearns was the Republican lead on the House Energy committee and on the Investigative committee. He becomes a lame duck to whomever wins between the Tea Party and Democratic Party in November.
The new fascist is a long time veterinarian in the Gainesville area who benefited oddly enough from the House redistricting which made District 3 even more conservative.
Yet again more polarization in American politics.
The Tea Party is code for a Fascist regime in the US.
As much as I dislike the Republicrats, they are kittens and bunnies compared to these lunatics. After they pledged to help the Libertarians end the "Patriot" Act and then reneged on their agreement in the 2nd round of votes, I am officially done with them.
And Fascism needs to stay buried in the past. Most people think Communism killed more people than any other religion or philosophy in the 20th Century. And its easy to think that way with the purges in both Russia and China. However, if you look at the books, both World Wars, the Spanish Civil War, several colonial wars in Africa, and major purges of people in Argentina and Chile were all done by Fascists. In total, around 30 million deaths can be attributed to the Commies, while the Fascists easily killed close to 100 million.
do you know what TEA in Tea Party stands for?
I keep forgetting what a delusional group you alleged libertarians are. You throw around words like fascist and haven't a clue what it actually means.
Let me help you understand FlCubs, i mean San. I realize you are challenged sometimes.
Wiki Definition of Fasicism-
Fascism is a radical authoritarian nationalist political ideology. Fascists seek elevation of their nation based on commitment to an organic national community where its individuals are united together as one people in national identity. They are united by suprapersonal connections of ancestry and culture through a totalitarian state that seeks the mass mobilization of a nation through discipline, indoctrination, physical training, and eugenics. Fascism seeks to eradicate perceived foreign influences that are deemed to be causing degeneration of the nation or of not fitting into the national culture.
Now lets fill in some blanks.
The elevation part in the commitment to an organic national community can be seen in the extreme immigration policies many employ in the Tea Party. They can also be found in some of the writings like Bachmann's recent queries to the FBI about the big bad Muslims taking over the US.
The Tea Party is heavily white and does not like Black people as seen from the behavior of groups protesting and the assault on a Black Congressional member.
The discipline they use is the Christian religion and all of those who dont subscribe to Christianity are deemed "offensive" and must be removed from the US or have their places of worship attacked or burned. Its also ok by the Tea Party to threaten members of communities they dont like.
It may be nice and in its early stages now, but rest assured if the Tea Party continues down its path, we will be in Germany circa 1936 before too much longer.
Oh I understand it alright.
Its a snow job for the groups out in Idaho and Montana and has been from day 1.
To translate, thats the Aryan Nation.
You should keep reading.
"Fascism is a system in which the government leaves nominal ownership of the means of production in the hands of private individuals but exercises control by means of regulatory legislation and reaps most of the profit by means of heavy taxation. In effect, fascism is simply a more subtle form of government ownership than is socialism. ”
Regulatory legislation? Heavy taxation? Gee, who does that sound like??
Again I dont think you understand.
I am always commenting on the polarization of American politics and everyone tells me that I am blowing things out of proportion. But the group in the White House at the moment are pretty close to Socialists and with the Immigration and Racial policies of the Tea Party at the moment, they are pretty close to Fascists.
Doesnt give those of us in the middle much choice. We have to choose the best of 2 evils and in the words of Jerry Garcia you cant win because "you are still picking evil."
Oh I do understand. You have no idea about which you post. so you call a group of people racists and fascists and you worry about polarization. The irony there is too good. Can you tell me the race of Allen West of Florida?
Frida, you're just a bitter liberal that hasn't a clue. Leave it to a lib to quote Garcia.
Let me explain how this works.
Its a process to where they are going. Its not like they just walk in and start heavily taxing to begin with.
What is power? Money is power. Eventually Fascists work to get all of the power concentrated in the hands of a few at the top of the government. Much like Communists but for different reasons, eventually they start taking resources away from the populace under the auspices of nation building in the form of taxes and its slowly and steadily builds into that rate. Germany and Hitler was the perfect example.
One of the programs that he used was the Highway System. Most people dont realize that Germany built the first Interstate system using tax money. They then used this to help transport troops etc during the early invasions.
And did you read further down Magilla?
Did you see the section on ending Abortion and ending of Free Trade? Who does that sound like?
so you call a group of people racists and fascists and you worry about polarization. The irony there is too good
I dont think you know the definition of irony either.
In the words of Dennis Green- "They are who we thought they were."
Irony, hypocrisy, clueless. Very appropriate. By the way, allen west is black and a prominent tea party guy. TEA in tea party stands for Taxed Enough Already. I just wanted to fill in those missing pieces of facts that you seem to gloss over so easily.
And we know who you are. An intolerant bigoted liberal that is worried about Obama losing.
"Again I dont think you understand."
Dude...that should be tatoo'd backwards on his forehead...
