He made the trains run on time and controlled the Unions

Fascism is recognized to have first been officially developed by Benito Mussolini, who came to power in Italy in 1922. To sum up fascism in one word would be to say "anti-liberalism".

...............Socialism and Democracy. Political doctrines pass; peoples remain. It is to be expected that this century may be that of authority, a century of the "Right," a Fascist century."

A lack of understanding in Liberal writing

Usually I am comfortable with the liberal view points I follow. Today I got a comeuppance. If a right winger or a conservative disagrees with something I say I am comfortable with my point of view and ready to defend what I say.
I have said that we have to be open minded in the U.S.A. and in our Union to see and value differing view points. I thought I was living up to that ideal. Today someone told me, after reading my blog, "you know I am a conservative" and I could tell that I had written something to upset that person, someone that I respect. What is the problem? The problem is that I had no idea what I had set to upset that particular individual. If I don't know what I said to upset someone, while I can't admit to being wrong, it shows that I didn't know my audience well enough and perhaps used a barb or an insult rather than a reasoned argument.

Dwight D. Eisenhower cautioned against the military industrial complex, a visionary.
Most of the founding fathers would be considered honest conservatives today with their beliefs in self sufficiency.
Teddy Roosevelt would never have been considered a bleeding heart liberal.

This country and hopefully our Union will be made stronger by uniting and understanding that most of us want nearly the same things, we simply see different ways to get there.

To that one reader and to anyone that thinks that a conservative, a Republican, or anyone would not get a fair chance a UnionMaine I apologize.
