    Japan, Italy, and Spain towards fascism in the 20's and 30's are playing out again. Hell, they played out here in the 30's as well. Our saving grace was Hoover was a complete failure as a leader, he could have seized the opportunity of the country's collapse and declared war on some drummed up enemy. But we got lucky with his incompetence and FDR's brilliance. But while I see plenty of Hoover (or worse) wannabes in the right I don't see a lot of potential FDR's from our side. Could we get that lucky twice? I hope so.

    There are lies, damn lies, and statistics but they all pale in comparison to conservative talking points.
