What else is new. The Republican Party went over to the Dark Side after Eisenhower. Both the Republicans and the “Christians” basically embrace Nazi Family values including racism, homophobia and misogyny. Other Nazi values include extreme nationalism and militarism along with a worshiping of troops as Warriors.
The have peddled fear while pursuing violent aggressive politics both at home and internationally.
The choice this election is clear. You can support Obama and the Democrats or let the Nazis win.

The theory behind Rep. Todd Akin’s (R-MO) assertion earlier this week that women who are victims of “legitimate” rape would not get pregnant appears to be based on 1972 research that cites experiments done in Nazi concentration camps, a Missouri newspaper reported on Monday.
During an interview with KTVI over the weekend, Akin had claimed that women were not likely to get pregnant because “if it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”
This reasoning, based on 1972 article by a University of Minnesota Medical School assistant professor, has been used for decades by anti-abortion activists to argue that no exceptions to abortion bans are necessary, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
In the article titled “The Indications for Induced Abortion: A Physician’s Perspective,” Dr. Fred Mecklenburg concluded that it “is extremely rare” for a rape to result in pregnancy.
Mecklenburg cited a number of factors for his theory, including that not all rapes resulted in “completed act of intercourse” and that it was “improbable” that a rape would occur within “the 1-2 days of the month in which the woman would be fertile.”
But it was Mecklenburg’s presumption that a traumatized rape victim “will not ovulate even if she is ‘scheduled’ to” that appeared to be the basis of Akin’s recent remarks.
To support his conclusion, Mecklenburg cited studies that were allegedly done at extermination camps in Nazi Germany.
