    "We ask that the government undertake the obligation above all of providing citizens with adequate opportunity for employment and earning a living. The activities of the individual must not be allowed to clash with the interests of the community, but must take place within its confines and be for the good of all. Therefore, we demand: … an end to the power of the financial interests. We demand profit sharing in big business. We demand a broad extension of care for the aged. We demand … the greatest possible consideration of small business in the purchases of national, state, and municipal governments. In order to make possible to every capable and industrious [citizen] the attainment of higher education and thus the achievement of a post of leadership, the government must provide an all-around enlargement of our entire system of public education … We demand the education at government expense of gifted children of poor parents … The government must undertake the improvement of public health – by protecting mother and child, by prohibiting child labor … by the greatest possible support for all clubs concerned with the physical education of youth. We combat the … materialistic spirit within and without us, and are convinced that a permanent recovery of our people can only proceed from within on the foundation of the common good before the individual good."

    – From the political program of the Nazi Party, adopted in Munich, February 24, 1920

    LIBERALS and NAZIS (Send this to your left wing acquaintances)

    And from the text itself:

    "We demand ruthless battle against those who harm the common good by their activities. Persons committing base crimes against the People, usurers, profiteers, etc., are to be punished by death without regard of religion or race.
    19. We demand the replacement of Roman Law, which serves a materialistic World Order, by German Law.
    20. In order to make higher education—and thereby entry into leading positions—available to every able and industrious German, the State must provide a thorough restructuring of our entire public educational system. The courses of study at all educational institutions are to be adjusted to meet the requirements of practical life. Understanding of the concept of the State must be achieved through the schools (teaching of civics) at the earliest age at which it can be grasped. We demand the education at the public expense of specially gifted children of poor parents, without regard to the latter’s position or occupation.
    21. The State must raise the level of national health by means of mother-and-child care, the banning of juvenile labor, achievement of physical fitness through legislation for compulsory gymnastics and sports, and maximum support for all organizations providing physical training for young people."

    Kinda spooky, huh?

    While I see where you're coming from.... Can I just state - for the record - that linking either of our political parties to Nazism is distasteful. It serves no real purpose other than to score partisan points - and, in my opinion, we should not link our parties to a regime that murdered millions of people.

    Truth isn't distasteful.

    They support people who kill the innocent and weak, either deliberately or ignorantly. There are absolute parallels.

    You know, I like Babble even though her IQ is lower than that of the chicken who is going on my rotisserie tonight.

    Goodwins' law sinks you.

    I also know and sort of agree with where you are coming from, but Hitler and his organization are pretty much unique. It is important to understand the circumstances and the ideology, but glib comparisons, even when justified, defeat the bigger point.

    The path from good intentions to Auschwitz is a long and tortuous one. One does not start out with the idea of mass murder to improve society, but quite often that is where people end up.

    Certain attitudes, if the logic is followed without check, lead to Pol Pot, Stalin and Hitler. However each of them are unique, and understanding the flaws in the beginning, prevents us from going too far later.

    Long before Stalin people predicted the labor camps under communism. They were reviled as fools and dupes. the logic of the system leads from one to the other. But often, the system stops before it gets there.

    So making your average liberal goof to be the equivalent of Himmler is self defeating.

    You are HARDLY one to talk about low IQ. Do you still argue that cities aren't required to enforce federal law? Just for example?

    Interestingly enough, there was an evangelical conservative named David Barton sho thinks we should "regulate homosexuality".

    Newsvine - Top Evangelical David Barton: Maybe Government Should 'Regulate Homosexuality'

    What are these "compassionate conservatives" planning on, a concentration camp for gays?

    Nope, sorry, the latest rantings of the conservatives sound more like the OP than what I've heard from the liberals.

    We know based on what has been said by Obama's administration to the UN, he regards the US' human rights record as no better than any other country's. So you have to question whether he knows oppression and loss of freedom when he sees it.

    Yep, when it comes to intellectually challenged statements. Ravi apparently believes that grocery stores in the UK lied when they confessed to selling halal meat that was not labeled as halal meat.
