You may not like Bush, he may be a bad President but there is nothing behind the statement that Bush is similar to Hitler or that the current state of the US is close to Germany.

All that shows is that you are.. just making a joke , comments lately have been thrown around by Bush bashers and it doesnt surprise me to see the comparison seriously thrown out there.

Could not agree with you more.

However, in the event that President Bush gets a second term, I will most likely bitch and moan a little while I tie one on, and then start looking for ways to curb the damage Bush's second term will do to America.

But I am an American, and proud of it, and would never leave this country - that is a defeatist, cowardly and vicerally unpatriotic stance.

CJ,
That's a little over the top. I see what you might be getting at though. Another stolen election by the Bush Bund would have a certain resemblance in method to the early rise of the Nazi party in Germany. However, let us give the current occupant of the whitehouse some things: a ideologically identical media arm (in Faux News, Rush, NY Post, and the Freep), and the endorsement of some terrorist groups (Operation Rescue, al-Qaeda) does not give Son of Bush either the reality or even the intention of an SA, even if sometime the shirts do look a little brownish, that's just seeing the world through crap colored glasses.

George W. Bush is not Adolph Hitler. Incompetent does equal Evil. Mentally Challenged is not Psychotic. Bloody Minded does not have to equal bloody handed, and there is not even the hint of a shade of a whiff of an inkling of genocide here.

Also, while there are certain similarities, there are every bit as many differences: The US does not have a national inferiority or persecution complex as Germany had after being defeated in WWI. We haven't lost a major war ever, and, unless there's a successful Indian uprising or Mexican invasion, we will never have land that we have colonized taken from us. We have living space to spare. You can carry the price of all your groceries in cash in your wallet - it doesn't take a wheelbarrow (though that could change if Bush is re-elected. Flip side of that is, if he screws it up royally, his party gets voted out of office and we see a new New Deal.) as it did in interwar Germany. We have a 200 year old tradition of mildy corrupt but stunningly well constructed democracy, not an infant democracy with a constitution that virtually doomed it to an early end.

GW may - is say <i>may</i> - be a racist. It would be hard to prove, but I suppose it is possible. What he is not is a white supremacist. Republicans, with the possible exception of Tom Delay, are not the KKK, and that's (other than neo-nazis) the closest thing we have to Nazis in this country.

Finally, all Nazis are fascists, but most fascists are not Nazis. Mussolini said that fascism ought to be called corporatism, since it implied a very close union of business and government. GW may be verging on that, but that's no argument for Naziism, though it is the single best argument to challenge every last return in his favor that came from a Deibold machine this fall.

All that shows is that you are quite shallow minded my friend.
Username, I think shallowminded is a bit harsh. Hasty, maybe, or even lazy, but not necessarily shallow. I've done it before myself, but, as I hope i have demonstrated, I really mean there are some points of similarity but none of identity, and that there are also differences.

Kind of like calling the NEA a terrorist group. I see where he was coming from (hyperbole and frustration), and there are points of similarity, but none of identity.

2 year old wants juice. Gotta git. Interesting thread.

If President Bush is re-elected we will have continuity in our war effort. Yes that is important, especially to our soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen.

If President Bush is re-elected we will have continuity in our economic arena. Yes, things appear to be getting better. Yes, we need tax reform and medical coverage but we are not ready for them or we would have them.

I definately do not agree with some of his methods. The presidency is like a computer, faulty information in = faulty decisions out or shit in = shit out. I do understand that he is only acting on the information given to him, the facts as they are known at that time and supporting the people that elected him (that is the American way BTW).

IMO - America is going to get sucked into a huge event in the next 1-5 years. I suggest a strong national defense, huge war chest and some loyal support for our leadership. Lessons on citizenship from the Viet Nam war should be ingrained in our hearts and minds by now.

Damnit people! This is our country! If you really despise the man, don't run away - get out there and do something about it. If there's marital law, there'll be a ton of people in Michigan and Idaho who'd love another finger on the trigger. But that's more extreme than I suspect will be necessary. There are Republicans in office because Republican voters are motivated and get out there and work and organize and give money. We really do have the government we deserve if people don't do that (and I am guilty of it too.)

I am determined to jack this thread, as it is not going anywhere. I'm taking the skills test to see how I do, and I'm confused. What is a one-year bachelor's degree? And why is there no option for a four year degree? Did they never expect Americans to come north or something? Explain this thing to me! Also, what is with the page that asks for you age and has as answers: 17, 18, 19, 20, 21-49, 50, 51, 52, 53, over 53. What the HELL?

72! And that's with no actual reason(read: job) to move to Canada, nor any ability to speak French!
