    Mussolini was praised by liberals before WW2 as a visionary. Hitler was also seen as a leftist and was praised by the western press. This is historical fact
    You are wrong. This is historical fact.

    You're extrapolating things into absolutes in a really stupid fashion. As a reflection of what you're doing, let me suggest that libertarians want to dissolve the United States as a political entity.

    Youre attempting to distract from the issue in a really stupid fashion. I applied factual actions to a textbook definition in order to make them fit a label. You did the opposite, taking a definition of libertarianism and inventing actions.

    There are in a totally alternate universe.
    Wanting to be free and exercise our constitutional rights is kooky? But living in rainbow pony land where everything is free and noone kills anyone isn't. Letting Obama do whatever he wants to the country isn't crazy? Putting the lives' of the citizens of our country in danger because Liberals think guns "kill people" isn't crazy? I'm tired of people pointing at each other, if we are going to solve the major crisis our country is in WE NEED TO STOP POINTING FINGERS AT THE OTHER PARTY. The truth is, both parties are at fault on some level. Democrats are at fault for electing Clinton, Biden and Obama. Republicans are at fault for electing Bush, and attempting to elect Romney instead of Ron Paul which split the party in half letting Obama win for a second time.

    I would not rely on Herman Cain for analysis of what's transpiring or what will transpire in the U.S., I would rely on my own analysis of what's going on. I can't say if it is socialism, communism or fascism, but from my understanding of those three political theories, I can see elements of some of them within the U.S. today. Perhaps there are elements of all three, and I just lack a finer knowledge of it. I don't know. But what I do know is that rights guaranteed to us by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights are habitually being trampled upon by people in positions of authority. Granted, this is not something that is new, nor will it be something that stops, but the frequency in which we are collectively becoming aware of these offenses has multiplied over the years. What's startling is what is unknown to us. You know, what is classified and hidden from public purview. Because if you go back, say, fifty years or so and truly examine the historical record of the U.S., you'll discover countless things that will leave a very bad taste in your mouth. Make you uncomfortable. Maybe even question, "How is this possible in a democracy... in America?"

    Sadly, the rate in which we are awe struck in a truly negative way by people that hold authority over us will not only continue, but it seems that the ill-treatment that we experience will progressively get worse. But that's not to say it is all the fault of the government, the police or anyone else that wields authority, if you've been a member of this message board, or any board for that matter, for any length of time, you should no doubt have noticed that there are Americans that willingly go along with the "program". That is to say, if the police quash a peaceful protest of liberals, you'll have conservatives, whether open or not, relishing in it. Or with the I.R.S. targeting of Tea Party activists. The left primarily went into defense mode instead of being outraged that fellow American citizens were being targeted by a federal agency of the United States government. Or with the N.S.A. revelations. There is a sizable percentage of Americans that agree with the N.S.A. spying on us. Mind you, it is not just the N.S.A. that is spying on Americans, you've of course got the C.I.A., D.H.S., F.B.I., etc doing it too. Yet, once again, there is a sizable percentage of U.S. citizens that agree with that. Perhaps it is the willingness of these Americans, as well the Congressmen and Congresswomen, Senators, Vice President and President himself that allow these constant, seemingly never ending abuses to our so-called free nation to transpire. There is no unity to reign in our intelligence agencies. People in the know would rather sign off and then look the other way.

    So, again, I don't know if we're necessarily heading for communism or even fascism, but it is rather obvious that where were at now, and where were heading in the estimable future, is anything but the place that we collectively should want or desire and does not resemble a democracy in the measurement we all learned in school.

    Calling Obama a socialist is kooky. Period. End. Anybody who defends the lunacy of Cain is just another delusional tea partier, out of touch with the meaning of words and the world.
