Quislings and Deplorables In 1974 Republicans put country before party and forced their president to resign. They did what was right. In 2002 Democrats, many against their better judgment, did the popular thing not the right thing by supporting the invasion of Iraq. Today's spineless Republicans are doing what the Democrats did in 2002 by not standing for what is right. They will pay for it at the polls in November or we, as a country are doomed!!

A President for All the People This article compares and contrasts the character of Trump and actions he has taken with the character and actions taken by Al Gore and John McCain. A question of honor and honesty that other public figures have exhibited, but that he does not. The likelihood that he would encourage violence by his followers (as he has already done) simply to stroke his own ego.
Rep. Chris Collins, From WikimediaPhotos

Our Socialized Corporations: America's Hitler, the Conclusion The courts have given corporations the rights of people. The father of Fascism, Mussolini himself, believed, "Fascism should more appropriately be called corporatism since it is the merger of state and corporate power." Welcome to Bush world.

America's Hitler: Part V Bush's hubris and sense of personal, imperial entitlement. Bush, like Hitler, believed he was chosen by God to lead his country. Why then have things gone so badly for him? Why then has virtually every decision he has made been the worst one possible?

America's Hitler: Part IV Hitler, perhaps because he had been a poor student, mistrusted the intellect and despised intellectuals. Instead of seeking the approval of intellectuals, he crafted his message to appeal to the people's emotions and instincts. Part Four of a five part series on "America's Hitler."

America's Hitler: Part III Hitler's seemingly miraculous successes in restoring the post WWI German economy resurrected the people's feelings of pride in their nation. His resultant nearly godlike status enabled him to misuse the people's feelings of patriotism and nationalism to embark upon an expansionist, imperialistic path.

America's Hitler, Part Two This article attempts to explain how feelings of fear and powerlessness contribute to a more easily manipulated citizenry. It continues to compare how both Hitler and Bush used religion and patriotism to manipulate the people and accomplish their goals. It touches upon the media's complicity in enabling both leaders to do what they did.

America's Hitler This article compares Hitler’s rise to dictatorial power in 1930’s Germany and the Bush administration’s rise to dictatorial power in America today, focusing on the role “religion” and “patriotism” played in both. It is based largely on the psychological study of Hitler commissioned by the United States government during WWII and published in 1972 as a book titled The Mind of Adolph Hitler by Walter C. Langer.

America’s gods: Money, Materialism, and Militarism, In America our motto is “In God we trust,” but what do our self-professed Christian leaders and most Americans really trust to keep us safe? Is it God, or is it the superiority of our weapons in both their number and in their power? Is it God, or is it our ability and eagerness to make war, our unequalled capacity to kill and destroy?

Other People's Kids All those who accepted without question the words and claims of this administration in the run-up to war with Iraq, especially the media whose function is to examine what those in power say and to hold them accountable, must share the guilt for the deaths of "other people's kids."
