Fascism vs. Socalism

I see us leaning towards fascism as much as socialism, with our allowing our rights to be abrogated in the name of security. Here in the USA, I see conservatives as more than willing to support 'the right to keep and bear arms', but reluctant to support free speech and habeas corpus, especially if those rights conflict with their conservative beliefs.

I believe for every individual who would vote reflexively for a D, there is an individual doing the same for an R. If you don't believe me just come to the restaurant at my country club, Mussolini himself could get their votes if he had an R next to his name.

The dumber the citizenry the easier to scare them into giving the government power with nebulous security threats and scare mongering tactics.

I would not be all that surprised to see one skull and bones club "OZ" behind the curtain controlling both the wicked witch of the D's and the wicked witch of the R's, immune from any retribution as we in the general public tilt at the straw man windmills he has set up for us.
I won't be getting on either the D ship or the R ship for fear of someone on the dock yelling to me on the gangway "it's a cookbook".

Well, if you put the R and D together you get research and development and that is what it appears to be about at least for you junior

If you want any semblance of self-rule, you need your local government to have the power. Move to an island. You're okay there until the US decides to do some more nuclear testing, anyway.

I guess the best that can be achieved here is to get an acceptable answer to the question, "What's in it for me?" from your government. That's why a little more socialism might not be a bad thing. (A $600 stimulus check won't pay my dental bills.)

It's a socio economic system that requires all to be totally not bogus with their weed and Grateful Dead tickets. Far more mellow than a herd of Fascists.
