Yes He Did! President Obama's Top 50 Accomplishments | Republicons Don't Have One (Sabotage?).

http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/magazine/march_april_2012/features/obamas_top_50_accomplishments035755.php#

Realize as you go through these, Cons fought against them all. This is why you don't let Cons anywhere near local, state or federal government. Hey no-difference dummies, is this clear enough for you? And how did you miss this?

Print them out and whip them out when dumbasses question!

Cons don't have one, we DO!

So many trolls around lately. Bet they love this post. It's good to remind them of where we've been as the repugs have clearly attacked and have tried thwarting anything Obama tried to accomplish. They could not stop a winner. We learned from the past, the old trickle down my leg bullshit. It's time for a level playing field for all not just the FAT greedy rich.

They do and they soon learn that we also derive strength from their stupidity as well as each other. At that point, they realize they have wasted their time and not ours. In here, we know where the truth comes down. Being active and getting in the game is what it's all about. I never stop fighting for what is right for our country as long as alive. We all have a purpose for being on this planet. We need to get something done that moves the human race forward a step or two. ANd, if we're lucky, we can still save our planet from being devoured.

I too feel the calling to fight corruption and to make a better healthier world for all. The trolls in their way let us know that it is working. That our support of each other and our outreach education and lobbying is working.

If a repub gets in the office, then the whole planet might as well go to hell, because HELL will be a vacation spot compared to what the repubs will do to not only this nation, but will do to the entire world... As far as I can see, I see no difference between the Republic(ans) of today, and the Republic(ans) of the Roman Empire under Nero. They intend to flout our Military might to the world and try to IMPOSE their agenda upon it. I have two very apt bumper stickers I made..."Romney Wants Wall Street Totally Unbound, So That It Can Finish Grinding The Poor Into The Ground." and "Santorum Wants The Presidents Position, So That He Can Create 'The New Inquisition'"

My favorite was the "Ended the war in Iraq". The withdrawl plans were drawn up in '08 under the BUSH ADMINISTRATION. All Obama did was stick to BUSH's gameplan. If you think Obama had ANYTHING to do with Iraq ending, you're either ignorant or living under a rock...

"35. Let Space Shuttle Die and Killed Planned Moon Mission: Allowed the expensive ($1 billion per launch), badly designed, dangerous shuttle program to make its final launch on July 8, 2011. Cut off funding for even more bloated and problem-plagued Bush-era Constellation program to build moon base in favor of support for private-sector low-earth orbit ventures, research on new rocket technologies for long-distance manned flight missions, and unmanned space exploration, including the largest interplanetary rover ever launched, which will investigate Mars’s potential to support life."

"10. Toppled Moammar Gaddafi: In March 2011, joined a coalition of European and Arab governments in military action, including air power and naval blockade, against Gaddafi regime to defend Libyan civilians and support rebel troops. Gaddafi’s forty-two-year rule ended when the dictator was overthrown and killed by rebels on October 20, 2011. No American lives were lost."

military maneuvers are considered accomplishments ?

  1. Began Asia “Pivot”: In 2011, reoriented American military and diplomatic priorities and focus from the Middle East and Europe to the Asian-Pacific region. Executed multipronged strategy of positively engaging China while reasserting U.S. leadership in the region by increasing American military presence and crafting new commercial, diplomatic, and military alliances with neighboring countries made uncomfortable by recent Chinese behavior.

  2. Tightened Sanctions on Iran: In effort to deter Iran’s nuclear program, signed Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability, and Divestment Act (2010) to punish firms and individuals who aid Iran’s petroleum sector. In late 2011 and early 2012, coordinated with other major Western powers to impose sanctions aimed at Iran’s banks and with Japan, South Korea, and China to shift their oil purchases away from Iran.

The US Iraq/Afghan soldiers principal means of interrogation for 10+ years has been to crush the testicles of infants in the middle east to get parent confessions.

At Mai-Lai they cut off the penis and labia of every child and adult they killed and made necklaces, this is why there was outrage not over the death but the sexual mutilation of the children.

Same as now the US solider sodomizes children in the arab/persian world with their guns and comes home a hero.;

Why does OWS always delete anything about the atrocity's that US soldiers inflict on the world?

sex doesn't make the pain and loss of death worse

the statement is boring and not original

[-] 0 points by myjart (21) 2 years ago

The worst thing you can do to an Asian person ( East of Turkey ), is destroy their family tree by crushing the testicle's of the son, that means your family line is finished, this is the worst possible thing you can do.

Thus the USA does the worst possible thing to get the greatest results.

Destroying the child son's ability to breed will drive most people crazy, and that was Rumsfeld's goal all along to make enemy's quicker than you could kill them, so they would kill themselves.

The statement might be boring, but just like Mai-Lai masacre, ... folks always leave out the real atrocity, that every where the US soldiers went they cut off the penis and labia of children to make necklaces.

[-] 1 points by matoinyanawacis (157) 2 years ago

So is it your contention that it is President Obama who is mandating and supporting these, to my knowledge, undocumented crimes against humanity, or are you referring to the atrocities committed by the Bush Administration, The REPUBLICAN administration, the same republicans presently in control of a great portion of the United States, who wish to return the nation to the same failed and criminal policies of the Bush years. If that is your contention, that President Obama is doing these things, then you need tp check yourself into a mental hospital. Bush's crew does need to be charged with and found guilty of their war crimes against humanity and the Geneva Convention. Who knows, maybe someday a bounty hunter will extrodite them to a country where justice can be served. President Obama knew he would never be able to accomplish it here because the repubs never would have allowed it, and the ensuing civil war it would have caused would have only weakened our nation worse than it already was with the criminal abuses of the financial system causing our near depression level economic crisis. There is an old saying... "Fight only those fights that you have a 'reasonable' expectation of winning." President Obama knew where his priorities were. If you want to see who will be worse for this nation as President..the Democrats or the Republicans.. you only have to look at Michigan to KNOW exactly what the Republican agenda is... and any fool who claims that the efforts there are in any way the American Dream... are either traitors to America, or self declared enemies of America, and are in desperate need of judicial incarceration for the safety of all America.

If you shun the tools and weapons our forefathers left us, don't bitch about them being used against you (not talking about muskets).

If you're worried about Iran you're either stupid, ignorant or lying. Nuclear-armed USSR and Red China were much more crazy and dangerous than Iran could hope to be, but no nuke happened. Quit drinking the Fox Lies Koolaid.

Untethered anything is always bad. Muskets huh, If this a claim that we do not have guns rights. Bring it!!!! As to your lack of understanding let in enlighten you on a few things. USSR and RED China have nukes and they believe in "MAD" It is because of "MAD" that the Cuban Missile Crises ended. they do not want to die either. you can always work with an enemy that does not want to die. Japan also did not want to die in the end. now if you listen to the leaders in IRAN and do not disbelieve them they have said that they have no problem if every Iranian was killed in a nuclear strike as long has thry got to kill the Jews first. The leaders also believe that they can speed up the 12 imam to come. Also the last time a nation leader spoke like this it was Hitler and he even wrote about it before and no one believed him either. and he followed through what is said. So you can choose to not listen or you can wake

The Spymaster: Meir Dagan on Iran's supposed threat

In a rare interview, ex-chief of Mossad Meir Dagan speaks out against a preemptive strike against Iranian nuclear facilities anytime soon. He says the Iranian regime is rational in its own way. (CBS News) Meir Dagan has been described as "hard-charging" and "stops at nothing." For more than eight years, Dagan made full use of those qualities as chief of Mossad, Israel's intelligence agency, where he focused on keeping Iran from developing a nuclear weapon. When that job ended, Dagan did something unheard of for an ex-Mossad chief: he spoke out publicly, voicing opposition to Israel launching preemptive airstrikes against Iran's nuclear facilities anytime soon. Dagan believes the Iranian regime is a rational one and even its president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad - who has called for Israel to be annihilated - acts in a somewhat rational way when it comes to Iran's nuclear ambitions. Lesley Stahl reports.

Keep your crazy to your militia circle jerks.

The country has real problems to deal with, controlling the phycho-billy Taliban, fixing all the damage done by regressive Republicons, and catching up with the rest of the modern world.

The problem with you leftest, is your claims always end up killing people. You claim you want free speech but never want to let any one speak that you do not agree with, and you will and do use violence to enforce you will. Then if the police stop you, you then claim to be victims of the evil state. You claim to protect life and gleefully murder the unborn. you all gave up the Communism, and Fascism. Two very lovely governments. if you can not understand how they are BOTH on the left then you do not understand you own movement. I have to admit that you are very good at murder and genocide.

[-] 2 points by JesseHeffran (3903) 2 years ago

Wow, you are a very misinformed individual. You want to talk about murder and genocide, let's talk about the Reagan administration and their holy war on south America. I know it is easy to blame the left so then you can let your nation off the hook. But history does not have your back. lets not talk ideology of foreign nations,but lets just keep it an American affair and talk about all the proxy wars our nation has conducted in the name of free markets. For you to call the left diabolical and the right un corrupted, shows you have a poor understanding of American exceptionalism. There is nothing overly righteous about our nation and the right is just as culpable when it comes to murder and genocide. Maybe it has a lot to do with the bomb that we ignited in '45, that has made us a paranoid basket case of our formal selves. Or brutality and the elite are just the culmination of a free enterprise system. either way, you need to stop pointing fingers and do a little soul searching. History is written by the winners and this is the only reason Hitler is a tyrant and not a hero. So instead of pointing fingers at the left lets talk about American corporate imperialism and the two sides that wield the reigns.

[-] 2 points by Normalperson1 (119) from Indianapolis, IN 2 years ago

You have a point there. but calling it a holy war is stupid. It is easy to blame the left because they have done the worse by far. Say that the right has also done bad things. And both side agree with Americans greats failing.( The enemy of my enemy is my friend until he becomes my enemy) Also go way back to Japan. The traders wanted to open Japan to trade and the US fleet was used to open the door. One can say that was the first step that led to the attack on Pearl harbor. Left, right, : The path to hell is paved with good intentions. History may be written by the winners, but it is never forgotten and will later it Always gets out.

[-] 1 points by JesseHeffran (3903) 2 years ago

When reviewing history from the beginning of the cold war to the present and listening to some of these freemarketeers rationalize their atrocities, I believe that the American love affair with capitalism is pretty close to a religious fervent, or a holy crusade. Read what Poindexter is quoted as saying when he was kicked out of the Reagan administration. His ability to justify his transgressions shows that he was a freemarket acolyte. He was one of many freemarket fundamentalists that wont look at any other ideas, believing an unregulated free market is as holy as heaven its self.

So I don't believe I am stupid for the choice of words I used. look at the rational behind the domino theory, and tell me there was not an iota of hypocrisy behind the idea that it was righteous to use guns and bombs to stop a nation from becoming communistic on their own accord. After France left Vietnam, the people chose to go in the opposite direction than what America preferred. Instead of being rational about it, we dreamed up the domino theory to justify our actions. If capitalism is so superior, then why is it always exported with the barrel of a gun? should not its superiority win the hearts and minds of the world by its own fruits? But, at last, it always boils down to that the people of the world don't know what is good for them, and they have to be educated in what is best for them.

[-] 1 points by Normalperson1 (119) from Indianapolis, IN 2 years ago

Nice, why is it you seem to love the ideals of Socialism. If i do not join this movement then am a problem and must be removed to protect the group. It always seems to go that way in the end. All those Russians, Chinese, Vietnamese, and other nations that fall you this movement did not just kill themselves. It takes away freedom and liberty. You do not own anything, not even your life. I look around and do not see proof of a Socialist nation that is anything but total failure. or a nation that is failing. But then America is not a free nation anymore either. Little bit by little bit the Socialist have infected this nation and we will become a Fascist nation it we can not stop it. But you may want that in the end.

why does anyone who questions the atrocities of his nation have to be branded a socialist? I am just giving you my interpretation of our history. Un like Rand who believed in total free markets, I believe there are some services that need to be socialized. But i'm not fervent in my belief to say that capitalism does not have its positives too. I believe we are at a point where the wealth is so consolidated at the top that the tax schedule needs to be revamped. that does not make me a socialist that just makes me practicalist. You are right about one thing though. We do have a streak of Fascism running through are body politic. but fascism is something that no sane working class individual would ever rally for. you want to know the difference between a socialist and a fascist? a Fascist has his boot on the body politic's neck, and a socialist has his boot on the private sector's neck, either way the average person is assed out.

Well said.. Understand I question what others call atrocities. I do not agree that water-boarding is a atrocity. But we can run circles on that forever and never agree. The problem i have with a few having the most money it seems to come down to jealousy. If they stole the money or cheated others then yes the money is not theirs. But there are many that got rich because of hard work and inspiration, or they smart and setup something that others wanted and got rich that way. Just who do we think we are to say you are rich so give up most of you money to the Government. You may call it practical but I call it stealing. In no way do I think the tax system is fair. To be truly fair all would pay taxes and all would paid the same rate. Not the tiered rate with deductions it is now. So any clue how you stop the government from becoming a Fascist or a Communist nation or a hybrid for the two?

Indiana, of course, has tried “right-to-work” once before, passing a similar law in 1957. The law was so unpopular that voters demolished Republicans at the polls in 1958, and Democrats repealed it in 1965.

Righties always repeat themselves, failures and all, like that nation-killing Ryan regurgitation.

Chambers of Commerce, ALEC and Corporations themselves are "Organizations" promoting business for which they pay and we end up paying through cost shifting. Unions are organizations promoting the workers, the people. Unions have cured and eradicated many terrible practices employers inflicted on people in a greedy frenzy to increase profits. Many we all enjoy today, some in ignorance some in hypocrisy (in the rightie's case, both). Unions have operating costs, too, money well spent for the benefit of the people. A foreign concept to Cons. And the reason they wage war on Unions. Support your US Postal Service.

Fascism is a fundamental Right Wing construct, no matter what your Bortzs and Limpaws spit up or pull out of their asses. But that is fact and Cons can only exist in a fact-free, authoritarian state of being.

The unions served there time and like all unneeded things they must be cast aside for people to grow. You can try to prop up the unions all you want, they are dying off. That is one reason why you all want to change the voting rule from to form a union from a secret vote to a open vote. This way the Union Thugs can know who did not vote for the union then they can "adjust that persons thinking".

FASCISM is and always will be a construct of the left. No matter how you Socialism lovers try to rewrite history. The simple name of the political groups that formed them and what they claimed they stood for is always SOCIALISM. It is always in the end about the total control of the government.

What is the difference if a worker pays a union to get ahead and a corporation that pays a lobbying group to do the exact same thing? Where as workers pay unions to get better wages, Conservatives pay ALEC. There is no difference unless you are talking to a hypocritical Conservative.

I'll give you your point that it is both parties bankrupting America, but they are both just playing the game laid out in front of them, the game that only OWS wants to end, and you want to see stay the same. If you see what the moderate pro OWS want, you'll see it is money out of politics, which should help all tax payers and other Americans. Until, this happens, You can't demonize one side without checking the abuses that the other side does too.

As to the way you describe the right to work state, you make it sound so altruistic and kosher, which again is wrong. You like to frame things as if the good ol' Conservative party comes in to the rescue.

Going back to your workers dilemma, if that part time employee could not afford to work in a unionized shop, then that employee should have went somewhere else to work. Ain't it funny how Conservatives drop this line on the workers all the time, but when the line no longer helps to make your argument you gravitate to its opposite like a bug to a zapper. Where is you total lack of compassion you show for the worker's blight? Oh, the poor worker had to pay union dues, but who cares about the poor worker who can't make ends meat.

Indiana Company Rejects Gov. Mitch Daniels’ Claim That It Added Jobs Due To ‘Right-To-Work’ Law

By Travis Waldron on Mar 15, 2012 at 6:30 pm

Indiana Republicans ignored protests from labor groups and even National Football League players this winter and became the 23rd state to adopt a so-called “right-to-work” law. Despite having no evidence that the anti-union legislation would create jobs, Republicans claimed it would, and Gov. Mitch Daniels (R) signed it into law.

Less than two months after he signed the bill, Daniels is already touting its success. Daniels claims more than 30 companies have asked about moving to Indiana, but so far he’s only named one, MBC Group, that added Indiana jobs. Unfortunately for Daniels, it seems he jumped the gun:

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation issued a statement in which company president Eric Holloway said expanding its Brookville, Ind., site was a “no-brainer” because of right-to-work and other factors.

Holloway says he did not notice the reference to right to work when he approved the statement and says the law had no effect on his decision to expand.

Indiana, of course, has tried “right-to-work” once before, passing a similar law in 1957. The law was so unpopular that voters demolished Republicans at the polls in 1958, and Democrats repealed it in 1965.

The law is again unpopular — 71 percent supported an effort to put it up to a referendum vote on the November ballot — likely because studies are again showing that it is bad for workers and won’t actually help Indiana create jobs.

Oh, and then he signed the "It's OK to Shoot Your Cop Law."

SEE PEOPLE: This is why you don't let these scumbag, America-hating, Cultist Republicons in your government!!! You Can't Fix Fascism!!! You Conquer it and try it for war crimes!!! Statute of limitations on the Bush-Cheney-GOP Fascists runs out in 2014!! There's still TIME!!!!

Let me enlighten you on the right to work law. Back in the early nineties. you could get a job at Kroger's part time and you did have the right NOT to join the UNION, but you still had to pay UNION FEE's as a part timer. THAT IS NOT FAIR. one should have the right to join a union or not, and if not then they should not be FORCE to still pay the union. You claim to be fair but all you want is controlling power. Also after a union formed a lot of the time they then force the company to never hire none-union employees. "Close shop for Unions Employees only contract" This is to protect the union monopoly.

It is also funny you claim that the right is about FASCISM, when it always comes from the LEFT Socialist groups. We have more FASCISM UNDER OBAMA then all the pass presidents combined.

Fascism is total government control, but you still have the right to own things, You just have to do what the Government tells you to do.

That's right, the Affordable Care Act, while not the single-payer system that kicks Big Insurance out of the picture, still provides countless Americans who are already being helped by the law’s new benefits, protections and tax breaks.

One group of Americans who can look forward to the law being upheld is young adults and their parents. Historically, young Americans beginning their careers have struggled to afford health coverage, often putting off their dreams in order to take a job with health benefits.

To help these young people, the law allows many Americans under age 26 to stay on their parents’ health plans. Today, more than 2.5 million young people have already taken advantage of this benefit, giving them and their families peace of mind.

Another group of Americans who are counting on the law are the tens of millions of people now getting preventive care at no additional cost. In the past, far too many Americans went without critical cancer screenings and vaccinations because of unaffordable co-pays and deductibles, often at great risk to their health.

Now, many recommended preventive services are free for those with Medicare and private coverage. Last year, 32.5 million people with Medicare and up to 54 million Americans with private coverage got at least one free preventive service thanks to the law, a huge step forward for America’s health.

America’s small-business owners also have a lot at stake. Before the law, they paid an average of 18 percent more than their larger competitors for health coverage, sometimes forcing them to choose between providing health benefits to the employees they had and hiring new ones.

Under the law, many small-business owners are now getting tax credits to help bring those costs down. As one Montana small-business owner recently wrote: “The tax credit cut our costs by over $2,000. For a small business struggling to keep health coverage, that makes all the difference.”

The group that may have the most to gain from the health care law is America’s seniors. In addition to providing free preventive care, the law has saved 3.6 million Medicare beneficiaries with the highest prescription drug costs an average of $600 each as part of the gradual phasing out of the so-called donut hole.

And Medicare is stronger for all seniors, thanks to the law’s new protections against health care fraud. The results speak for themselves: Since 2009, health care fraud prosecutions are up 27 percent, and recoveries are up 58 percent to more than $4 billion last year.

Even those Americans who haven’t yet noticed major changes as a result of the law have a lot at stake. That’s because one of the law’s most important improvements is one that will benefit every American family: a health insurance market that’s no longer rigged in favor of big insurance companies.

Already, the law has strengthened oversight of premium hikes and established a Patient’s Bill of Rights that bans the worst abuses of the insurance industry, like canceling someone’s coverage when they get sick just because of a paperwork error.

And even bigger improvements will come in 2014 when new marketplaces will be established in every state for people and small businesses that buy their own health insurance. Plans will no longer be allowed to turn away people with pre-existing conditions. And there will be tax credits available to working families on a sliding scale to help ensure they can afford coverage.

The result will be that, for the first time in our history, all Americans will have access to affordable health coverage, even if they lose their job, change jobs, retire early or start a business.

This is a very different picture from the one conjured up by the law’s opponents before it passed. Instead of the economy crashing, more than 3 million new private-sector jobs have been created, with the health care sector leading the way. Instead of Medicare crumbling, many seniors have actually seen their premiums drop, even as they enjoy new benefits. Instead of health care providers rebelling, we’ve seen a surge of interest in the new opportunities the law gives doctors and nurses for improving care.

It’s not surprising that the law’s opponents, having lost in Congress and watched their policy case vanish, have taken to the courts to try to undo these new benefits and protections. We saw similar challenges to laws that created Social Security and established civil rights protections. Those challenges ultimately failed, and so will this one. And that’s great news for the American people.

This was actually my response to another post but it fits here as well...


What makes you think the government didn't get the exact bill they wanted? They will drive private insurers out of business giving them control of healthcare without the stupid expense of what you like to call single payer.

They will have complete control of the healthcare process and they will have millions upon millions of young people paying in who normally would have waited 20 years. Obamacare is a complete win win for government, more money and control of how and when you die.

You think of government as a good thing and they think of you as a profit center. Once you pass out of the earning class you are a liability and Obamacare is structured to help you to your final reward as quickly as is seemly. Heart/lung transplants will be a thing of the past (except for the elite), new medicines won't be developed because there is no incentive to develop them.

You really think the Democrats are really trying to get single payer for you? You're insane. Look at who has the golden medical care and big retirements and guaranteed job security, unions and government employees do. Maybe you are one of those two protected classes, maybe that's why you spend so much time trying to keep the wool over the eyes of your fellow lefties but if you aren't one of those two groups you are indeed a useful idiot for the political elite.

OUR government!

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

The Preamble sets out the origin, scope and purpose of the Constitution. Its origin and authority is in “We, the people of the United States”. This echoes the Declaration of Independence. “One people” dissolved their connection with another, and assumed among the powers of the earth, a sovereign nation-state. The scope of the Constitution is twofold. First, “to form a more perfect Union” than had previously existed in the “perpetual Union” of the Articles of Confederation. Second, to “secure the blessings of liberty”, which were to be enjoyed by not only the first generation, but for all who came after, “our posterity”.

This is an itemized social contract of democratic philosophy. It details how the more perfect union was to be carried out between the national government and the people. The people are to be provided (a) justice, (b) civil peace, (c) common defense, (d) those things of a general welfare that they could not provide themselves, and (e) freedom. A government of "liberty and union, now and forever", unfolds when “We” begin and establish this Constitution.

This guy points out the damage that those who hate democracy have inflicted on OUR government and attempts to alienate we the people from our government. When we the people allow democracy haters to get us to turn our back on our government, we allow our government to be used [by them] against us.

In contrast, only 39 percent of voters and 37 percent of independent voters do not want the high court to take action. http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/quinnipiac-poll-repeal-obamacare/2012/02/24/id/430515

Using racial slurs to get well-meaning and correct points across discounts the original intention of the message and allows people another route to attack us.

And yes, racism is a "real problem" in a Tea-Party driven country where the first black president has gotten ten times the death threats of his white predecessor.

Thank you for that link. This is going to be the "on message" lie from here until the election - "There's no difference between Obama and the Republicans, so you might as well not vote."

They have used this lie pretty successfully against Democrats ever since they overthrew FDR's regulatory reforms and regained the power to purchase elections. So the Democtats HAD TO fundraise just to stay in the game. Then they say, "Look, the Democrats are just as corrupt."

The point is that we can influence the Democrats if we vote for them, simply by threatening to withdraw our vote. We have no influence over the Republicans at all. As soon as they win, if they do, we will cease to exist.

Hitler said that the bigger the lie is the more likely people are to believe it. He was an inspiration for these guys, and I'm not just saying that.

Propoganda has long established, tried and true techniques. The bigger the lie is, and the more often you repeat it the more likely the majority will simply accept it as true, even though they can SEE it's a lie. That's human psychology. Here is an interesting quote from Julius Caesar that relates indirectly to this strange human response:

"Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind.

And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so.

How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar."
