Explain to *me* why I am racist against God knows who...
You called Kamala Harris and Alexandria Ocasia-Cortez "harpies" - without even knowing what the word means. Harris is of African-American descent and Ocasio-Cortez is of Puerto-Rican descent. When you call white Republicans "harpies", you might sprout a leg to stand on. (FYI "harpies" can be white males too.)

Racism is typically against a marginalized minority group. Go ahead and get marginalized and I'll get back to you.

You might have a long wait. I've been waiting for an argument from you for almost 20 years.

As I mentioned somewhere, Jim Keegstra and his anti-Semitic conspiracy theorists had us arriving there more than 20 years ago. What happened?

I dont see us as a fascist nation! We have too many checks and balances
The Weimar Republic had one of the best constitutions ever devised. The problem was that the people didn't respect the constitution or democracy in general.

Not near enough for a majority.

The German people were saddled with war reparations debts from WW I that crippled their economy and snuffed out their ambitions.
Wrong. The German people had contempt for democracy long before the war, much like the contempt for democracy that the conservatives in the US are developing now. So for, the American conservatives don't have an excuse like war debts. When they do, you'll be goose-stepping down the street with your swastika armband and stiff-arm salute.

You're just harping on the same old same old without making the slightest attempt to back up your claims.
Phat writes:
... in order to pay off the debts and expenses of the enormous social programs which our nation cannot afford.
I keep telling you, social programs are not a drain on the economy. They boost the economy. They make more taxpayers.
Phat writes:
We respect democracy as long as...
There's your problem right there. You don't respect democracy for its own sake. You don't respect democracy because it's the overall best system. You only respect democracy "as long as" it makes YOU better off (in your own misguided perception).
Phat writes:
...as long as we the middle(working class) are not crippled through being expected to pay the bill that the rich wont pay and the poor cant pay.
Idiot. The poor COULD pay if you would stop robbing them.
