You should know all about that tacit being someone who hides behind the title of Conservative.
Settle down there sparky.
I agree with you that most of Arizona' politics are absolute trash but to compare Az to Nazi Germany is uncalled for. The biggest reason being there is currently no genocide taking place in my state. Further those of us who don't agree with the state of things here are not just "going with it". We try our best to change things and in many cities like Flagstaff Tucson Bisbee things are pretty good. I might add Sedona but well they are a whole different kinda of crazy there.
Godwin's Law. That was quick.
Oh, and the back and forth between identifying as "progressive" and "conservative"? Am I in 6th grade again?
The fact is that they're just labels. Attack policies and arguments, not people.

Most here saw the Tea Party a**holes for what they were long ago. Well, they showed up without their Klan hoods to show themselves to the world at President Obama's speech in Arizona:
Obama foes at one point sang, "Bye Bye Black Sheep," a derogatory reference to the president's skin color, while protesters like Deanne Bartram raised a sign saying, "Impeach the Half-White Muslim!"
Many on both sides wore red, white and blue and carried small flags.
“He needs to go back to where he came from because obviously, he is a liar,” she said. “I am not racist. I am part Indian. Obama’s half Black, half White.”
“He’s 47 percent Negro,” shouted Ron Enderle, a 77-year-old Chandler resident who said that he and his son served as Marines and his grandson is currently serving in the Marines.
“We have gone back so many years,” she said. “He’s divided all the races. I hate him for that.”
This is today's Republicans. Bunch of f**king ignorant bigots. Bathing in Stupid is no way to go, people.
One bright spot was that Obama supporters outnumbered the Obama critics nearest the motorcade when the President past.

Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
Not everyone in the Tea Party is a racist and not everyone who opposes Obama is a member of the Tea Party and those who oppose Obama are not racists by default. Stereotype much?
