Which path do you predict?

Okay I have seen the Administration called Marxist, Communist, Fascist, and Socialist. I have also seen all Liberal Democrats say YOU don't know the real definitions of these systems of Government.

Well here are the definitions of them so we can make it clear we know what they mean.
Now that we know what they mean which one do YOU think we are headed to?

  • We will become a socialist society. One where Government dictates EVERYTHING you do, and don't do. Watch for it, it's coming....

  • Um, no Louise....instead of saying (once again) that we're haters, why not answer the question?! I think it's a good one!!

    Seeing as you and the other "high brow" liberals (sarcasm) are so quick to point out that we're not "smart enough" to comprehend such complex things as reading a dictionary (more sarcasm), why don't you take any one of the definitions and explain how what we're seeing and hearing direct from the horse's mouth is NOT what we're seeing and hearing (no sarcasm)!!! LOL :o)

    Sadly, not everyone has the same level of intelligence. When some are threatened, all they do is snarl, because they are incapable of processing complex thoughts. They have four or five standard answers they use for every situation and rely on them in an almost religious fashion.

    To the OP, fascism. Communism would work if it's ideological goal was not equality. That's why it's never worked, but to keep true to the definition, we're not going there. We are not headed towards equality, but a nanny state where a ruling class tells everyone else how to live. The ruling class of government and those who give them the most money will take ownership or control of everything to help facilitate that.
