70. Reading 101 for you
I said the neocon cabal who seized control of the Repuke party are traitors and war criminals.

I said the Repuke loyalists who helped put them in power and keep them there are accomplices, enablers, aiders and abettors.

I'm not advocating jailing anyone because they disagree with me. I do not want anyone "tried and put to death." I want them tried. The penalties if they are found guilty are a matter of US and international law.

Treason is a crime under US law. I believe (and so do many others) that treason has been committed by members of the bushgang. It's not a matter of my belief versus their belief. It is a crime.

War crimes are a matter of international law. I believe (and so do many others) that war crimes have been committed in Iraq, Guantanamo Bay and Afghanistan (and also possibly on US soil). I want to see those responsible brought to justice. It is not a matter of agreeing with me or disagreeing with me. It is a matter of crimes having been committed.

These people are fascists. those who continue to support them are "little fascists." Like Germany after WWII, not everyone goes to trial and not everyone gets the death penalty. The question that launched this exercise in you showing us that you don't know how to read was "Can a republican be a good person." I say fascists, by definition, are not good people. You apparently like some of them, as long as they let you hang out with them. Cool. To each his own.

So take your "Stalin" strawman and shove it, Mr. Bryant 69.
