What is going on in America?

::::::::

I am amazed that the very people that supported the Bush administration in their Fascist form of American government cannot tell the difference between Socialism, Communism or Fascism. And really have no concept of what a Democracy really is. And further accuse this incumbent, president Obama, of bringing all of these forms of government to America.
I see that these 'tea-baggers' that support Fascism and scream that Socialism is so very bad, seem to not understand that their police and fire departments, their high school and community college districts, their street sweepers and trash collectors, their Social Security and unemployment insurance, and all the other 'services' that everyone pays for with their taxes is Socialism.
And having lived outside of the United States for over nine years and having real news stories to read and evaluate brings a much better understanding of what is going on in the world today. As a side note -- local news may or may not be slanted and bias, but international news usually isn't. Especially since I do get news from six different countries news services and only the US news reports things very very different than all the rest -- always in favor the US! I do remember the force-feeding of the slanted, biased and non-news that Americans are bombarded with daily, not to mention the psych-ops advertising that we all are subject to also.
It seems to me that since most countries around the world have 'one payer' medical coverage for all of their citizens, why not nationalize the health insurance? The American congresspersons mandate Americans die every year without any health care and all the while making property insurance mandatory! Makes no sense to me.



 

I am an American and I have lived in Russia since 2000.
