Apparently, 28% of Americans look at the Fascists and think, "Ooooh! A Strong Daddy who will tell me what do to and whom to hate. Yay, Daddy!"
When I look at George "Bring 'Em On" Bush, for example, or Rudy "No Brown People Allowed" Giuliani, or Mitt "Double Gitmo" Romney, I see bullies who use their power to oppress the weak and enable the privileged to increase their bounty. A bully, however, is not strong.
Indeed, a bully is a coward who sees threats everywhere. To hide their own inadequacies, bullies swagger and smirk, using the biggest weapons at their disposal to swat the smallest 'enemies.' Their first reaction to any situation is to use force. If that doesn't work, they'll use more force, and more, and more, until, leaving destruction behind them, the balloon of their self-esteem is punctured at last, and they slink away, disgraced and dismissed, into the slimehole from which they oozed.
We have bullies in charge of our government. We need our representatives to stand up to them, and soon, before their insecurities destroy the world.
