    ... is one of the brightest at DKos.  The comment was made in a diary long ago and I asked at the time to use it, and it's been my sig line ever since.

    Four years of idiocy and Dems, starting with Obama, passing Repuke budgets.  I've had it.  I'm pissed.  Four more years ahead of us of this same thing where we get corporate Repuke financial arrangements shoved down our throat, most of it coming straight out of the corporate Repuke world that has invaded our government....?

    You know what corporations invading government means, right?  Since 2000:  Record-setting profits for oil corporations, military-industrial-congressional complex corporations, mercenary corporations, pharmaceutical and health insurance corporations [Medicare Part D: seniors and disabled people were told 'buy pharmaceutical insurance or else' - punishment never specified], medical corporations..., and there will be an increase in profits for insurance, medical, and pharmaceutical corporations thanks to Obamacare [everyone else told to 'buy private insurance or face a $1000 fine'].  Our medical care should have all been turned over to Medicare which is, in essence, a not-for-profit single-payer health insurance program [no overhead, no stockholders to pay, no executive bonuses to pay].  Corporations have taken over a whole bunch of government duties at several times the cost that government could/would charge..., and Casino Wall Street and Big Investment Bankers want to take charge of our Social Security Trust Fund (buh-bye to our collective money we've been paying into since we first went to work or that seniors or disabled people have been receiving as earned benefits).

    That, in its essence, is fascism--ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power.
    -- Franklin D. Roosevelt

    Fascism should rightly be called Corporatism, as it is the merger of corporate and government power.
    -- Benito Mussolini

    Fascism, the more it considers and observes the future and the development of humanity, quite apart from political considerations of the moment, believes neither in the possibility nor the utility of perpetual peace.
    -- Benito Mussolini

    Oh, if you like Crashing Vor's quote, you might also appreciate this [Just because he was a bloody dictator doesn't mean he can't be right sometimes.]:
    The history of saints is mainly the history of insane people.
    -- Benito Mussolini

    I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor
