Letter — Are the Nazis back?

E

When considering the direction our current government is going, the word fascist comes to mind.E The following is a dictionary definition.

Fascism:

a. A system of government marked by centralization of authority under a dictator, stringent socioeconomic controls, suppression of the opposition through terror and censorship, and typically a policy of belligerent nationalism and racism.

b. A political philosophy or movement based on or advocating such a system of government.

Sound vaguely familiar?E Sounds like the so-called “Patriot Act” to me.

The policies being followed by the current administration imply ignorance and arrogance unprecedented by any former president of our country.E The criminal dishonesty displayed by our acting president and his administration is a tool of the illegitimate to accomplish the immoral.

The ignorant are easily deceived.E You can fool most of the people most of the time and if you throw in a few dirty tricks you can even win an election.E (And if your DNA is missing the legitimacy factor, the morality factor and contains a hypertrophied greed factor, why not?)E If you are dishonest enough, with a large enough corporate backing, you can get away with a great deal.E Broadcast enough lies, (using FOX “news” network and others,) it might be possible to subvert the constitution before the populace realizes what has happened.E After all, half the people have an IQ below 100, so you should be able to fool them.E Then in the other half you just convince a sizable percentage of them that your cr ooked policies will work to their financial advantage so they are willing to sell out our Constitution.E So there’s your majority vote!ESee how easy that is?

Could this be what the authors of the Second Amendment had in mind?
