I'm starting to think the Democrat Party should rename itself the Fascist Party. Its love of an all powerful, centralized government, and contempt for independent, successful individuals, are traits of a fascist mentality. Killing the long-standing Senate filibuster while in the majority, but using it unconstitutionally to block judicial nominations when in the minority, underscores an ends-justifies-the-means treachery.
Power is the obsession, not societal improvement through virtue, prudence, and justice.
In 2009, I created an illustrated definition of the word "fascism". Read it, and weep for our Republic.
