    Anything to the right side of the spectrum. Facism is a logical extension of all conservative thought -- or should I call it a perversion.

    Sinclair Lewis huh? Pretty snazzy there, strollingbones.

    I see your Sinclair Lewis and raise you one Upton Sinclair.

    Brilliant!

    I think I am falling in love.

    But my penis warns me if I do again, it will go on strike.

    That's the popular thought....but facism really is offering health care for all and no apparent way to pay for it.

    Totally ass-backwards but drive on I guess.

    Facism takes way your freedoms. Capitalism is the freedom to earn whatever your capable of. Fascists tend to frown on this freedom....or any freedom that doesn't involve them and their system of controls.

    mudwhistle, the logical extension of leftist philosophy is socialism to communism to anarchy. Any good idea can be taken to such extremes, it becomes inhumane.
