In response to jimedfred's comment:
Au contraire mon ami Reuben de la Hoplite.
Instead of acknowledging or attempting to rebut my observations or comparisons of previous Presidents, you fixate on the subsequent attempt at closing humor , the Mussolini reference, and try to use it to invalidate the entire presentation.
I'd wager I have studied (and learned ) more Marxist Theory, Communist Ideology,Political Science, Economic Philosophy both theoretical AND applied, and History than you ever will. ( For just ONE small test, in your opinion what did Marx say was the inevitable final stage of Capitalism prior to revolution ? )
Perhaps you yourself have never read / studied / or at least comprehended the published writngs of Wilson prior to being elected President ? Or conveniently forgot recorded history regarding , for just one example, FDR's attempt to expand the Supreme Court from 9 justices to 16 ?
Are you unfamiliar with the ninth and tenth Amendments to the Constitution ? Not conversant with the specifically delineated powers of the various branches of governrnent, judicial / legislative / executive ? Don't recall the extensive and often passionate debates between Hamilton and Jefferson over how strong a Federal government should even be ?
Even the great James Madison would admit finding our present system unrecognisable. I will admit that due to the first sixteen years of my education havng taken place in Canada, I MAY have an unfair advantage in historical knowledge, but surely you DO remember how Hitler came to be ELECTED Chancellor ? Or how the Bolsheviks first compromised after the February ( or March, depending upon which calendar used) Revolution ?
Of course, if indeed you ARE an educator , your stubborn refusal to admit inconvenient facts or acknowledge relevance of dissenting viewpoints just proves that Gramsci et.al were correct. To achieve complete brainwashing / proper socialization of the populace, the Left needed first to take over the Academy in service of propagandizing and indoctrination.
So it's possible you do your forbears Marx, Gramsci, Lenin, Thomas, or Alinsky proud after all. However, I'll personally bet on the victory of liberty and truth over dogma and revisionism anyday.
Take your time answering; I have to make some calls and earn a living for a couple hours. But as one of our greatest heroic generals once said, " I shall return "
I teach history, law and philosophy. I have a juris doctor. There is no way you know more than I do one these subjects. And your very views confirm it. Anyone who seeks to implicate any of our presidents (Republican or Democrat) as being even close to totalitarianism knows nothing of the theory or practice of that dreadful political idea. It is just stupid to say such a thing. And as a typical right wing ideologue you ignore any actions committed by conservative presidents and just focus on Democrats. Don't you think Nixon was more a threat to the Republic than the dreamy-eyed Wilson. He tried to subvert the electoral process! And then you accuse anyone who disagrees with you with being a Marxist. It is not a sign or Marxism it is a sign of intelligence. The Marxist or even Socialist movement in America never amounted to anything. And you think it somehow dominates America. More stupidity. Apocalyptic stupidity. Grow up and read a book or two or three.
Come on Rube, you're a freakin junior high civics teacher at best.
If the above were true, then there is NO WAY you could support Obama. It would require you to ignore the truth.
I'd like to hear more on how nixon "subverted the electoral process" . I know lefties cling to that, but B&E is a reach as subverting the electoral process. Was he somehow magically making electors vote for him?
Face it, you are reaching, and I doubt you are what you claim. Earlier, I had another poster claim that he was a highly skilled economist, who somehow has time to mess around with the little people and post nonsesne about economics.
You lefties think you are important, and smart. Trust me, you are not.
