    Admit it. The left loves to throw around words like "nazi" and especially "fascist" and "neocon." These words have lost all meaning as well.

    If you're using his standard, then yes.
    That he wont agree tells you all you need to know.

    The left wing pundits equal to the likes of Coulter and Limbaugh do not have the exposure to alter the connotation of "Nazi" at this point in time.

    Nobody's intentionally altered the connotation of the word "socialism." It's the direct result of the failure of socialism and a general opposition to the authoritarianism socialism practically necessitates.

    Regular socialism is less honest than national socialism. Probably because the regular socialists share the same goals, but realize that the majority of people don't really want to be their slaves, so the socialists lie a lot more to get what they want.

    Socialists call their movement "progressive". Nothing progressive about slavery.

    Socialists call federal spending "investment". Wrong. It's just wasted money, almost all of it.

    Socialists insist that tax cuts be "paid for". Since when has letting people keep their own money required a payout?

    You're willfully failing to understand the point.

    Actually, that's very true. The left does toss around the term nazi far too much. However, that doesn't change the fact that the right throws around the term socialism too much. Both sides are hypocrites.
