Sister Sarah ~ Primaries are over, GOP must unite


Today


http://www.kansascity.com/2010/09/18/2232402/sarah-palin-primaries-are-over.html



After helping propel several upstart Republican contenders to recent primary victories, Sarah Palin said Friday that it's time for Republicans to unite now that primary season is over.

The former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee delivered a fiery speech to about 1,400 people at the Iowa Republican Party's Reagan dinner, the party's largest annual fundraiser.

She noted that the general elections are less than two months away and stressed that Nov. 2 should be the focus of all Republicans.



"This is our movement, this is our moment," she said.

"The time for unity is near.

It is time to unite and make government work."




Her appearance in the state where precinct caucuses traditionally launch the presidential nominating season drew intense attention, but she found time to joke about it.

If she laced up her running shoes, she said, the headlines would read: "Palin in Iowa, decides to run."




Palin has been coy about her presidential intentions and masterful at keeping her name in the news since she abruptly resigned as Alaska's governor in 2009.

She's mixed political fundraisers and candidates' campaign events with speeches in which she commands fees as high as $100,000.

It must be frustrating as hell to know that most Americans believe that the current admin's plans are far worse than what the dems and progs feel are 'no plan'. :laughing:

Characteristics Of Fascism

1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism - Fascist regimes tend to make constant use of patriotic mottos, slogans, symbols, songs, and other paraphernalia. Flags are seen everywhere, as are flag symbols on clothing and in public displays.

2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights - Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of "need." The people tend to look the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc.

3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause - The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial , ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc.

4. Supremacy of the Military - Even when there are widespread
domestic problems, the military is given a disproportionate amount of government funding, and the domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military service are glamorized.

5. Rampant Sexism - The governments of fascist nations tend to be almost exclusively male-dominated. Under fascist regimes, traditional gender roles are made more rigid. Divorce, abortion and homosexuality are suppressed and the state is represented as the ultimate guardian of the family institution.

6. Controlled Mass Media - Sometimes to media is directly controlled by the government, but in other cases, the media is indirectly controlled by government regulation, or sympathetic media spokespeople and executives. Censorship, especially in war time, is very common.

7. Obsession with National Security - Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses.

8. Religion and Government are Intertwined - Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders, even when the major tenets of the religion are diametrically opposed to the government's policies or actions.

9. Corporate Power is Protected - The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite.

10. Labor Power is Suppressed - Because the organizing power of labor is the only real threat to a fascist government, labor unions are either eliminated entirely, or are severely suppressed.

11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts - Fascist nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to higher education, and academia. It is not uncommon for professors and other academics to be censored or even arrested. Free expression in the arts and letters is openly attacked.

12. Obsession with Crime and Punishment - Under fascist regimes, the police are given almost limitless power to enforce laws. The people are often willing to overlook police abuses and even forego civil liberties in the name of patriotism. There is often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist nations.

13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption - Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders.

14. Fraudulent Elections - Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against or even assassination of opposition candidates, use of legislation to control voting numbers or political district boundaries, and manipulation of the media. Fascist nations also typically use their judiciaries to manipulate or control elections.



















"The separation of church and state is a legal and political principle derived from various documents of several of the Founders of the United States. The First Amendment to the United States Constitution reads "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof . . ." The modern concept is often credited to the writings of English philosopher John Locke, but the phrase "separation of church and state" is generally traced to an 1802 letter by Thomas Jefferson to the Danbury Baptists, where Jefferson spoke of the combined effect of the Establishment Clause and the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment. His purpose in this letter was to assuage the fears of the Danbury, Connecticut Baptists, and so he told them that this wall had been erected to protect them. The metaphor was intended, as The U.S. Supreme Court has currently interpreted it since 1947, to mean that religion and government must stay separate for the benefit of both, including the idea that the government must not impose religion on Americans nor create any law requiring it. It has since been in several opinions handed down by the United States Supreme Court,[1] though the Court has not always fully embraced the principle"

I find it intriguing how the GOP / Tea Baggers are running on a platform of getting into the government of the government they hate ... is this some new election platform epiphany since Reagan, Bush Daddy finally culminating in the destruction of the U.S. government and America with Bush Baby ?

Now I do find this plausability most intriguing as well when every single (R) candidate now playng the *victim candidate* since the McPalin loss of 2008 ... you've been getting attacked because everyone calls you wack-a-mole wack-a-doos ...


Heck, even Romney has jumped on the right-wing wacko *God is Great* election platform ...


So you ask ?


Again, when wheedling through Tea Party cacophony, your plan seems to be the *Miss me Yet ?* platform America hates worse than a Dove Church right-wing christian platform of *Hate* ...

Of course you do. It's also natural to be afraid of something new you don't understand. Also, I can understand your concern that if government spending is curtailed much, you'll lose your 'job'.

Whatever. Bottom line, you don't understand it, so you're afeared of it. The only thing you can do is ridicule and flail.

Have fun.

Welcome to the real world neo.

Try less drivel and more meaningful propaganda next time.

May I suggest relocation to a different geological location, perhaps Argentina, Mexico, Brazil, Nicaragua, etc. and living under their forms of government, which were brought about by 'incredible revolution' as Mark Lloyd has described them would make you feel more warm and fuzzy inside.

Other than that, I guess you can make more sense quoting Dr. Seuss.

I do not understand your logic here. You are putting forth a list of Fascist causes from a socialist democratic view- yet -the vast majority on the list pertain to your ideology -with the only real difference being your desire for this country to be neutered militarily.

Point being... -not sure why you posted that list. Is this an admission of your beliefs ?
