There should be something in place to prevent America from electing to become a facist state.

Explained by TomboyJanet...

we need a failsafe. That was supposed to be our checks and balances and our electoral college, but when both of those fail what do we have left? Perhaps we need a constitutional amendment that prevents people from popularly deciding to end democracy. I'm not saying it's happening just yet, but the very possibility that i COULD happen is pretty frightening. I'd rather try all I can to prevent it from happening then turn out i wasn't going to happen in the first place than to do nothing and have it actually happen. I mean what's the worst thing? I could be wrong and Trump and his ilk could really be harmless in the end. Then good. I have nothing to fear. But what if I'm not wrong? We need to ensure that democracy is PRESERVED for the future. In a fury of desperation and fear I see that people are so quick to abandon their principles to gain emergency help from their situation. We see that with religious leaders poo pooing the Don's immoral family values (at least immoral to the bible). It's the REAL slippery slope in this country.

First, great job in keeping with you anti-troll post earlier. I know as one of "Trump's ilk", I really appreciate that you've only implied that Trump is creating a fascist state instead saying it out right. It is far less enraging!

I also think it's swell that you found a way to have unnamed 'religious leaders' dis Trump's family values instead of coming out and simply identifying something real. That is helpful too.

I realize even though much of your explanation centers on Trump, you clearly stated that "I'm not saying it's happening just yet" - so obviously if anyone was to assume you were bashing on Trump - well how wrong could that be?

But as to the question in your headline - I think that Troopers idea is excellent and I think that protecting our sovereignty as a nation, controlling immigration to the country is very important too.

see we just keep deflecting this to talk about immigration. I'm not scared of immigrants. I'm scared of a top down dismantling of what our founding fathers set up.

Hang on just a second and boom


why support him?

I'm implying it only because I'm not 100 percent sure yet Budwick. I don't know if he is or not. I'm only half sure it's in the realm of possibility but it shouldn't even be that high. For Bush I was probably about 15 percent sure he'd become a dictator. Probably much less if it wasn't for cheney. And even then I'd not expect it to be outright Bang the drums dicatator ship but more like sneaky get everyone to agree with you that tyranny is good dicatator ship (ie torture, camps for gays etc) But that was slim pickings. With Obama I was .02 percent sure he'd be a dicatator only because of charisma and the Audacity of hype. Yes I questioned myself on Obama too. "what if the cons are right about him?" I never take a 100 percent stance on anything because the world doesn't work in black and white.

Even if Trump himself is unaware of what he wrought he has stirred up some nasty hornets in america. We're starting to push freedom so far that it's going in the opposite direction. We say give open debate to facisists, let them have their say. I think that's dangerous. I just don't want cruelty to become popular. That's all.

But I'd rather push back and stop a coupe I think is happening but isn't than sit back and let a coupe I don't thing is going to happen happen. Think of it as a bit of a Pacal's Wager if you will. All I hope is that if I am right, and this man turns out to be the man who would be king, that people like you will actually RECOGNIZE it and do the right thing. In the meantime I'm going to do my part and vote democratic in the midterms even though my state doesn't really matter. Perhaps I should move to florida with my mom after all. Since I have no intention of pulling an assassination or anything like that, and no interest in being a martyr I mean what does it hurt if I'm wrong? nothing? But at least I'm going to try to do what's right. That's all we can do.

I'm sorry, my comment regarding immigration appears to have been out of bounds somehow.

I see you've discounted the Voter ID thing too.

I'm not afraid of immigrants either. I'm totally in favor of LEGAL immigration.

You say " I just don't want cruelty to become popular. That's all. " That's very nice. I wonder, have you voiced your concern to Twitter over this post?


Cuz I think it's pretty clear that in this day of high tension over a hot issue - well this is PROMOTING hurting people!

Peculiar that a few years ago a tweet that read "Did you know Obama is a socialist" was removed as hate speech.

Janet, I suspected when I saw your post this AM about trolls that maybe it was directed to everyone -

So you mean fascism is people having thoughts and opinions that are different than yours?

In a truly fascist state, the vast majority of the media wouldn't be allowed to trash talk the goverment 24/7, and people would be "mysteriously disappearing" for saying anything bad about the government.

It looked stupid and paranoid when people thought Obama was going to turn the USA into a communist country, and it looks just as stupid and paranoid now that people think Trump is going to turn the USA into a nazi country.

For the Fascist, everything is in the State, and nothing human or spiritual exists, much less has value, outside the State.
-Benito Mussolini

If, whenever there's a problem, you look to the government for a solution, you're treading on dangerous ground. If you want to do something to prevent the rise of fascism, stop looking to the government to be the center of everything, solve your own problems and encourage others to do so too.

For example, if there's a cause you think needs attention, don't petition the government to deal with it, support a charity that addresses it, or if there isn't such a charity, start one. That's the American way, or at least it used to be. Independence and free will, not government control. Charity, not taxation.

If we elect to become a fascist state in an honest election, it will be the first time in history that it has happened. Historically, fascists have come to power by a combination of brute force street fighting, political dishonesty and forcible suppression of dissenting views, very much the same paradigm that communists and other extremist groups have used.

You know, like Antifa, for example.

Once in power, fascists and communists never allow honest elections until they collapse for one reason or another.

https://capitalresearch.org/art...ts-take-power/

So the best safeguard against an extremist takeover of any kind is to make sure the people retain the power to vote freely, and the best safeguard of that, ultimately, is the 2nd Amendment.
