    McCain doesn't count. The Right hates him because he isn't quite crazy enough for them. It's very popular to rip McCain if you're right wing. I said 'right wing darlings' in my post, not Republicans. So your answer to my question is 'no', you don't ever criticize them.

    It's not right to compare genocide to less. Doing so belittles and validates the genocide (as there is always some people in the 'like nazis' category).

    I can't make up logic.

    Incorrect. America--i. e. the American people, have never had any power in the world at all thanks to their miserable obsessed govt. in the last 50 years, which continues to run up huge deficits and taxes everyone to death to pay for pointless military interventions and sponsorship of foreign regimes (i. e. Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, Contras, . . .)

    As for the US govt.--which works for Exxon, BP, etc.--it has always been weak because

    1) Its military can't fight worth crap, as evidenced by its 8 year bungling in Iraq and continual bungling in Afghanistan against Third World adversaries w/crude weapons.

    2) It has never in the last 50 years, under all administrations, stood up for democracy; rather, it only claims to do so when it's in the best interest of its corporate-backed or AIPAC-backed sponsors, and condemns all democracies that are detrimental to those interests, and the rest of the world knows it and therefore never trusts anything the US govt. says.

    So, in a nutshell, Obama did not do anything to weaken the US or the US govt. because it has already been weakened by prior administrations beyond all hope. FYI, one can only weaken something that was strong to begin with.
    So the only answer is to turn everything over to the Libertarians, who don't believe in government at all. Got it!

    Yeah, it's kind of like a security blanket for them. Any time anybody mentions Hitler or Nazis, they trot out 'Godwin's Law' bull****, as though that's supposed to render anything said invalid. It's laughable.

    Your reference to Godwin's Law was apparently designed to end any comparison of the Russian land grab with Hitler. This just in: Sometimes comparisons with Hitler are right on point. If you honestly think this ends with the Russians only invading territory that 'likes' them, you're either a Putin fanboy or simply do not understand international politics. Or you get all your news from the Russian media.
    Anyone who knows history is instantly struck by how close the situation in Crimea is to Hitlers aggression. Those who employ "godwins law" in this case are hopelessly naive.

    Much happened in Nazi Germany outside of the genocide. Lets not appeal to ignorance and lack of insight when the similarities are so striking.

    Until genocide occurs, the comparison is off the table as it belittles the horror.
    Nonsense. You mean if the United States invaded Canada and Mexico, simply because we could, nobody could compare that to Nazi aggression in Europe in the late thirties and forties? Bizarre.

    Yeah, the Nazis did a hell of a lot of lousy things aside from genocide. Invading peaceful neighbors like Poland, Denmark, Norway, et al being one example.

    Okay, so go and look where I have jumped on Conservatives.....then the Neo Cons. Can't say McCain was one. Might wanted to be one.....but you know how that goes. Hell even told them they should have their own party.

    Although I do notice one difference.....they don't complain as much when I take off the gloves. Imagine that!

    Believing in limited government is not believing in no government at all. Spread that lie elsewhere. Individuals should be free to do what they want as long as it doesn't intrude on another individuals rights.
    Islam is an antiquated religion and needs to either modernize with the times or be completely eradicated.
    There are two types of Muslims, terrorists, and their enablers. They need to fix that if they want to be part of civilized society.
