    Dictatorships (like the ones the Left seems to love so much) and monarchies are usually better off with lots of poverty. Big government seems to breed it too.

    Isn’t it odd that the vast majority of the European dictatorships of the 20th century were RIGHT-wing? Franco (Spain – he was in power until 1974), Mussolini and Hitler were all far-right. They all relied on poverty to get into power.

    If trickle down worked, it’d be trickling down by now. Instead, the middle & lower classes work more & get less.

    News flash Ashburn: Facism is Leftist. It combines Nationalism with Socialism versus Communism that combines Internationalism with Socialism.
    The economic difference between the two is that Facisim relies on Statist Capitalism (ie., The Rich own big business while the government directs production… China is doing this today. In the US Obama is doing it to a limited extent… The Chevy Volt is an example).
    Communism has the government owning and controlling production.
    Feel free to list the political and economic policies and goals of those regimes. You’ll find they track like a Who’s who of Progressive Leftist policies.
    But, do feel free to try and support your position with something other than just vauge generalities….

    And here we go with the invocation of that great and serious political scientist, Jonah Goldberg, whose novel thesis that Hitler was a commie is accepted uncritically by anybody who thinks sticking it to liberals is more important than any amount of facts.

    The fact that political scientists and historians line up in solid disagreement with this notion just proves that they’re all in league in their sinister Fortress of Leftitude.

    Not questioning the economics here but the art is odd.
    Peasants shown with full baskets and bundles?
    They should be shown in poverty.

    So, Hitler loved the Communists so much that he sent them (along with a whole lot of other “undesirables”) to those nice resettlement camps!! Good Lord, talk about 1984 newspeak, keep yelling an absolute lie until the people come to believe it as the truth. Hopefully, the American people are both smarter and better educated than you and your other ultra conservative buddies on this site believe they are!!

    Wealth Envy

    And, that’s supposed to make me all ashamed of myself for wanting a bigger piece of the pie?Recently, my nephew, who inherited a building company complained to my about the welfare state. He said that he couldn’t keep people on the job because they would work just long enough to qualify for unemployment and then not come back to work until it ran out.Here was this 30 year old kid, standing in his 3/4 million dollar house telling me that he paid his workers so poorly that they were better off on unemployment, and he thought that THEY were the ones who should be ashamed!

    At this time, the peasants would use that extra money to buy food, pay off credit card debt, and possibly attend to those health issues they’ve been ignoring, all of which would stimulate the economy. If we wait until the peasants get more desperate, THEN they’ll be buying pitchforks and torches. More precisely, they’ll be buying guns and ammo, and the Lords would be trapped in communities that have big fences around them.

    I remember the guy who owns Papa John’s complaining that Obamacare would force him to add 14 cents to the price of each pizza. His reasonable conclusion was that he would lose business because the price would go up. (Same complaint with raising minimum wage.) What didn’t factor into the equation is that he would have to deal with fewer sick days with healthier employees, and be less likely to have turnover because his employees would leave for a job with better benefits, and turnover is way more costly than most people think. And, of course, paying Peyton Manning to shill for his pizza during each and every commercial break of all NFL games didn’t cost him anything. Also giving two for one, and other promotions, couldn’t possibly add to his costs.

    One can always narrow one’s view of consequences of actions. Ignoring potential consequences does not mean they cannot present themselves.

    construction people are notoriously mobile, yes, and yes, the work, for the most part, is hard physically…However, to be fair and honest, most (good) carpenters, plumbers, electricians, etc. have spent YEARS learning their respective trades, and deserve a wage reflecting their years of experience and their expertise. refute THAT, folks!!

    Adrian Snare: The problem is that we have adopted the model of the Second French Republic, which had monarchists on the right of the Chamber of Deputies and anarchists on the left. In real fact. it is more like a circle. The two totalitarian systems, fascism and state communism, are far more alike than different. Stalin may have extolled atheism, but WW-II Soviet newsreels show Orthodox priests blessing Red Army units departing for the front. Which is not significantly different from the government-controlled Reichskirke on the other side.
    Look at Czechoslovakia just after WW-II. They had a coalition government with all parties represented. In 1947, when the communists overthrew that government, the liberals were imprisoned and the two Socialists were killed (President Edward Benes hounded into a heart attack, and Premier Jan Mazarek drugged and thrown out a fifth story window), but the owners of the Skoda munitions empire kept their factories and worked with the communists just as well as they did earlier with the Nazis.

    Oh, please. The right wing, like the Family Research Council, are fawning over Vladimir Putin. If only our president could be that anti-gay! The left has never liked dictators, which is why we prefer constitutional scholar Barak Obama to people like “unitary executive” Dick Cheney.

    “The general conclusion,(never any 99.9% agreement) is that Nazism and fascism are indeed extreme right wing..”
    To my knowledge both Naziism and Fascism believe in gun control and a strong central government, neither of which is compatible with “right wing” and very endearing to “left wing”. Don’t take my word for it read it yourself from Hiltler’s propaganda minster Joseph Goebbels:
    1. “Capitalism has learned nothing from recent events and wants to learn nothing, because it places its own interests ahead of those of the other millions. Can one blame those millions for standing up for their own interests, and only for those interests?”
    2. “What does Christianity mean today? National Socialism is a religion. … One day soon National Socialism will be the religion of all Germans. My Party is my church, and I believe I serve the Lord best if I do his will, and liberate my oppressed people from the fetters of slavery. That is my gospel.”
    3. “because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily,” are often misquoted or paraphrased as: “The bigger the lie, the more it will be believed.”"
    Hatred of capitalism and hatred of Christianity and love for government and party If that’s not modern day Democrats, I don’t know what is.

    Republicans are Coke, Democrats are Pepsi. Drink your fill of your favorite, rant about “the other guys” all you want, but either way it’s coming out pisswater in the end. Enjoy your beverage and try not to wet yourself
