    9. Pacifism is trafficking with the enemy: trump's party was and is all for a civil war. TRUMP wants his minions to "fight for their country". No pacifism there. And remember that the Orange Buffoon wanted a Russian-style military parade every year.

    11. Everybody is educated to become a hero: See above. Plus, there's the current and ongoing abortion process where many Red states are proposing that the populace informs on the transgressors (just like Hitler's Germany), the Florida "don't say gay" laws, etc. Where everybody is being "educated" to inform on everybody else and therefore become a hero.
    Yeah, well, we could "put him there," but I'm not convinced. Parades yes, but he was an isolationist and not much into wars. Of course, he wanted to bomb Mexican narcos, but he was also going to deny he'd bombed them, so I don't know.

    As to #1, I don't think 50 years is enough to establish a tradition.

    But hey, look, the other 11 are not even debatable, so fascist he is.

    "Our MAGA King is so focused on making fun of people that he doesn't have time left over to actually do anything, which is perfect because that's when leaders mess things up," said average citizen Joe Pleasant of Vermont.

    "he's going to do great things for this kingdom by leaving us all alone. . ."
    That's actually not bad compared to their regular drivel. Unfortunately, it's sad, not funny, because roughly 70 millions of mental defectives would run, not walk, given a chance to demolish democracy and crown crown him indeed.

    Yep, it was because Trump "smelled weakness" on the President of the United States at the time.

    Same as always with these things.
    Rudy no-showed on Friday, two weeks ago.

    But this Friday (today) Rudy gave testimony for over 9 hours.

    I am sure Rudy will well protect his client that refuses to pay him.

    POLL: 52% Of Nation Now Desire To Ditch Republic, Establish Monarchy W / MAGA King

    Well first of all thank you for finally responding in a positive manner. Now we could have a more productive exchange. I still propose wealth w age is not very useful, and stil does not get you to an explanation of a cause for variation in results. There are far too many variables, as I mentioned before. In the case of Aus v USA. Explanations could be: - differences in general health of people, geographical location, state of public health care, vaccine hesitancy, cultural beliefs (Aus are a cowed lot who are submissive to authoritarian rule). So, to arrive at smthg like "government policy was the main cause of the poor USA result)" is completely unproven. Sure, it did play a part, but we do not know how significant it was, nor how an alternative party would have performed. And equally important is whether the public would have accepted an isolationist approach that Aus took (remember, they had to backtrack on the original zero-covid policy too).

    I don; t think it's very productive. What I thinkis more productive is to campaign for better public health systems, and to stamp out the obvious lies and corruption in government between big pharma. It has been a hiuge money making racket, equal to false flag wars. Both parties are equally as culpable for the current state the USA is in.

    What surprises me is this

    That is the thing you dumb Dems always do. You take on an issue like saying a government can cure a cold virus or set the climate or cure the opioid crisis, and Republicans are assholes for not caring about it. So you run around pointing a finger at us and say, "You do not care", and the solution is always the same, more government control, more spending, and higher taxes, and the results time after time are a disaster.

    If you are so stupid as to think government is the answer with Covid, then the Biden administration has done a horrible job, and the numbers show that Biden did way worse than Trump. I do not see that government interventions did all that much with regards to Covid. If you think we got our money's worth spending $9 trillion on Covid, you are fucking nuts.
    What surprises me is that you actually took the time to post this drivel.

    And the Republicans, the party of limited government, wants government in everybody's bedrooms, everybody's boardrooms, everybody's amusement parks, everybody's libraries, everybody's classrooms. Everybody's everything. Limited government my ass. Talk about a bunch of morons!

    You don't seem able to have an honest conversation so I am out.
    My contention, and I have said it all along, is that compared to wealthy countries with similar age profiles, the US has done worse than all of them.

    Your contention is that wealth is not a useful metric.

    Though I never get around to reading every post it seems clear that you put a lot of thought into defining Fascism. I applaud that. Frankly I was slow to call Trump a Fascist until the post election soft coups attempts accelerating into a violent one. Here's a historical piece drawing similarities between the George Wallace "white grievance" phenomenon and Trump while arguing that the former paved the way for the latter. There's plenty to digest, but I think it's dead on for the most part. Though much of the present penchant for paranoid conspiracy theories can be traced to Sara Palin, or at least in moving such into the GOP mainstream.
