Nothing new here. USA has been heading towards a Nazi Germany and/or Soviet Russia type dictatorship for quite a while now, it's only getting worse as time passes and if I lived in the states I would be trying to get out of there. Unfortunately there aren't many places that are unaffected by the USA and are pleasant to live in or would take much too long to get there:(

That's not likely- our government really does reflect a lot of our people here (and throughout the world for that matter)

In the words of George Carlin, "Garbage in, garbage out."

The US is unlikely to becoming a nazi state- we're becoming too soft for that

Aye. The United States does have an unfortunate tendency to make itself seem a lot more important than it is, but it's hardly a racist Neo-Nazi regime.

This image is little more than propaganda.

While the military will bomb all who appose us, the media will keep telling us we're under threat from terrorists.

# 1 in what? Self delusion? That would be really true, at least for the government and their supporters. The USA mutated into a plutocracy since WW2, or maybe even before that. And a plutocracy is close to a dictatorship, it is the dictatorship of those who where the money comes from.

Yes, the US has it's problems, but jesus f*ck guys, there are so many nations out there that are WAY worse than us- we happen to have one of the best systems of government EVER created- we literally pioneered the modern republic, and as it may not be as fast or efficient as it's parliamentary cousins, it's got a knack for overcoming obstacles and representing the will of the people- as the government develops, so do we.

The one unique attribute that the US government brings to the table is fundamental change- instead of a government simply telling people what to do and how to do it, the American republic requires the people to collectively change for the better before they're told to do what is right for the sake of being 'good'- it may seem slower, more complex, clunky, and goddamn ugly, but it's a lot healthier for a society in the long run.

Point is it's gone through worse in the past, and it'll sure as hell go through worse in the future.

Description

“Does not this remind you of the Nazis’ rhetoric before and during World War II? They considered themselves the chosen race, the superior race, etc. Such words and ideas pose extreme danger.”

~Rafael Correa
