    Please consider what the term "Nazi" implies before throwing it around. While our government may be imperfect at times, it is hardly the 3rd Reich.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    The idea of banning people from holding political office because of their name is tyranical, un-democratic, and even "nazi-ish".

    I beg to disagree, the Democrats would do it.

    Re: Should the Bush Family be banned from politics?

    I don't know. Should we ban the Clinton Family from politics?

    You have to ask this question, because whenever a Bush question is asked or policy criticized, it has to be countered with a similar question/criticism about Clinton. Balance, yin-yang and all that other hippie bull****...

    Re: Should the Bush Family be banned from politics?

    A ban of the Bush family, or any other family for that matter, from politics would violate the U.S. Constitution. In the long-run, it would establish a dangerous precedent for curbing the most fundamental liberties of Americans, particularly those concerning the nation's representative government.
