    I can't help but laugh when I (or another fellow conservative) get called a Nazi or a Fascist.

    Aren't Nazism and Fascism on the far left of the political spectrum? :eusa_eh:

    Nope.

    Actually, Nazis were fanatical right wing Christians.

    You miss the whole holocaust thing?

    Fascists are government supremacists - individuals who want to force their social engineering upon free people.

    So there are Left and Rightwing fascists.

    Both of those seem to give the state quite a bit of power; a lot like an monarchy/oligarchy or totalitarian dictatorship. Last I checked, the right is all about a smaller government. And we all know the extreme right is anarchy, which is no government at all.

    Hardly! Your education seems to be lacking in both the understanding of basic definitions and English grammar. Finish school and get back to us. :lol:

    I have no desire to teach you about how Nazis were not socialist. If you want to lean something, go dig up one of the many threads about it.

    Socialism is the extreme left, fascism is the extreme right, both are totalitarian.
