    He was a conservative. Today the Democrats are the conservatives, the Greens are the liberals, and the Republicans are the fascists.

    Proving once again that many people who bandy about the word "fascists" haven't the slightest clue what the word means.

    You do realize your arguing with a troll right?

    No. In order for there to be an argument the troll would actually have to argue the meaning of the word with me. It would be pointless as there is only one meaning, but that particular word gets thrown about a lot by people as informed as to what it means as Luna Tick, who appears to be aptly named.
