If Romney beats Obama that would be the end of democracy and the rise of fascism

This cannot happen - as Joan Walsh says this kind of inequity cannot work.

12. No, it ended Dec. 12, 2000.

Truly a day that will live in infamy.

13. This. And the icing was when they did it again in 2004 in Ohio and nobody did squat about it.

We're already well on our way.

3. Deja Vu. If Nixon, Reagan, George W. Bush or Romney is elected that will mean fascism.

 


Been there, heard that before.

Increased and deepening federal government attacks on our civil liberties and constitutional rights are certainly greasing the wheels for the estabishment of a dictatorship .... fascist or other kind.

Thank you President Obama.

4. The rise of fascism began 30 years ago

 

What you mean is the final nail will be put in the coffin. I kind of think it's already done and there's no way out of it. This country is already over.

The OWs and 99% will be back very soon. People always fight back

10. Do you think the powers give a damn what we say?

 

They own all the things that matter. The media, the money and the politicians. Unless we elect 99 percent candidates, and from my experience that is highly unlikely, all the screaming in the world won't change their minds. They don't care at all what the people think.

8. Fascism?

Can't mention that word here. Every time someone claims socialism, it must be countered with fascism and then tell them to google the word.

9. Gingrich is much more scary than Romney

 

in my opinion. Romney would be a business as usual president, no radical changes and would be boring, he is trying to talk a big game to get elected but its all an act and phony baloney. Gingrich on the other hand could do just about anything and is unpredictable and much more potentially dangerous.

I think your headline is over the top and kind of laughable to be honest. Romney shouldn't scare anybody, he is a weak candidate.

11. No, it wouldn't. It would be a bad thing, but what you say is not true.


Words have meanings, don't use them as though they don't.
