Fascism and Freedom

In his book " Liberal Fascism", Jonah Goldberg dispels the notion perpetrated since the 1930's that Fascism is a right wing political philosophy ,while Communism is a left wing philosophy. This myth was spawned in 1939 when Hitler's Germany attacked Stalin's Russia. The Left in this country and throughout the world suddently turned on Hitler and his Nationa Socialist Party, and created this myth that he was a right winger. They couldn't stomach the fact that two left wing dictators were brutally fighting each other. Prior to that time, der Fuhrer like Comrade Stalin was a hero to the Left. Both of these brutal dictators seized power in their respective countries by force, and immediately took control of all private enterprise.

When one considers the spectrum of political philosphies, the far left side of the spectrum is populated by communism, fascism, and totalitarianism. All are forms of government where the state is paramount and seizes control of private enterprise, as well as control of every aspect of the lives of its citizenry. On the right side of the spectrum you will find democracy and capitalism, philosophies that believe in limited government, self - rule by the citizenry, and private enterprise/free markets.

What prompts this analysis is the fact that America has always been a democracy where there was a clear line between government and private enterprise. I never thought in my lifetime that that line would be blurred, let alone shattered. However, a seismic and tragic event occurred recently that should have all Americans up in arms. The US government seized control of a private company and the President of the United States actually fired the CEO of this private company. I never thought I would see the day that such an act would ever occur here.

Not surprisingly this Stalin - like act was virtually ignored by the dinosaur media, who viewed the story as one of a failed CEO who took taxpyer money. It's time to wake up America. Our country is disappearing right before our very eyes! The time is now for a second American Revolution. As for me, I am putting my money where my mouth is and taking my family to our first tea party tomorrow. I would ask that you join me in this fight for freedom, and attend tea parties in your own communities. Let's teach this President the same lesson that we taught King George III over two hundred years ago. Don't mess with freedom - loving, God-fearing Americans.
