You'd be in the majority so you'd probably be praised for it, start up your thread and prove me correct.

Opposition to Nazi's is a good thing. Nothing hateful about that.
The definition of Nazi is National Socialism, the expanision of state control of the economy. Since this is exactly what Obama is doing the comparison is unavoidable. He has already taken over banks, autos, now he wants to take over the medical field. How much more can he take over before we call him the Fuhrer?
Recession: When your neighbor loses his job.
Depression: When you lose your job.
RECOVERY: When Obama loses his job!
I want Obama to fail....for the sake of our country!
According to John Dean, who wrote in Conservatives Without Conscience, "Many conservatives, particularly those who are clearly authoritarians, are not aware of their illogical, contradictory, and hypocritical thinking. If made cognizant of it, they either rationalize it away, neglect to care, or attack those who reveal their human weaknesses. Because such thinking seems to be a reality of contemporary conservatism, anyone operating from a logical mind or has the inclination toward a reasoned judgment will have a problem with this." Dean adds that right-wing authoritarianism reveals itself in three ways:
1.Authoritarian submission — a high degree of submissiveness to the authorities who are perceived to be established and legitimate in the society in which one lives.
2.Authoritarian aggression — a general aggressiveness directed against deviants, outgroups, and other people that are perceived to be targets according to established authorities.
3.Conventionalism — a high degree of adherence to the traditions and social norms that are perceived to be endorsed by society and its established authorities.
In North America these traits are seen more readily in those with conservative political leanings. To break this down even further, one can examine the following symptoms that reveal the authoritarian personality organized into four distinct catagories.

There it is, straight out of their mouths to you. A lot of these people want our President to fail. The entire political process has been compromised by lobbyists and financial interests. BOTH parties have been utterly compromised. I was never a Bush fan, (I'm an Independent liberal), but I never wanted him to FAIL.
This is my opinion: The Republicans have shown themselves to be the most immature, spoiled sports I have ever seen. They are poor losers to say the least...I'm not often left speechless, but I find it hard to articulate the level of vehemence and sheer intent of retaliation that I've seen coming from the Right.
Bush virtually stole his initial election, and still you didn't see Democrats react this poorly. The Republicans are in a panic because they have lost their power base. Anybody remember the Congressional redistricting practices in Texas and other states carried out by Republicans???
REPUBLICANS- YOU LOST BECAUSE IN THE EYES OF THE VOTING PUBLIC, YOU FAILED TO SERVE OUR COUNTRY PROPERLY, END OF STORY. Grow up, act like adults, and move on.
By the way, The Police and Fire services in our country are SOCIALIZED, as well as Public Education...check it out, nobody's whining about that.
One thing is becoming increasingly clear: the forces seeking to destroy constitutional self-government and impose socialism on the people of the United States appear to have underestimated the intelligence and will of the American people. The town hall uprisings have roused an arrogant, angry reaction from the Obama faction's political and media hacks. It reeks of surprised indignation. 'How dare these people prove more intelligent and feisty than we expected?' they seem to say. Their surprise more and more appears to be the only thing about them that is not insincere; that and their hunger for power.
It appears that many successful public figures in America have a quiet but deep contempt for the people whose support and adulation makes their apparent success possible. People who reach for fame and public applause often seem to suffer from a stubborn sense of vulnerable inferiority. They need public attention as an antidote to their own feelings of worthlessness. But as they receive the attention they crave, those feelings lead them to regard their own lives as a skillfully executed con game, in which they have sold hapless suckers stock in what they themselves feel to be a worthless enterprise. This leads them to conclude that people foolish enough to be manipulated into supporting and admiring them will fall for anything.
