tea party has many common interests with the 14 points of fascism. Other groups do as well, but they seem to be the most visible.

The Progressives have nailed down every single one of those 14 now that Obama is POTUS.

If Obama has nailed down all 14 points, why is not the tea party supporting him?

Because of his skin color.

Look up and post the 14 points and tell me how the tea party doesn't embrace fascist ideals.

First, you need to acknowledge how all 14 are already nailed down by OBAMA!

And just who made up these "14 points"? Noam Chomsky? I'm sure the author of that list hasn't any axe to grind.

As a progressive, let me say you have absolutely NO CLUE about what I stand for. Here are a few hints:
- I propose dismantling of the idea that corporations are people.
- I end up in defense of the minorities, gays, secularism, public welfare, a government that is supposed to work for the people, against the broad brushed ideas of immigrants, of race, ethnicity, language, nationalism.
- I've denounced gerrymandering.

And somehow you see these in Fascists and Nazis. Holy cow! I would LOVE to see evidence of such actions from them. Really!

You're right, only those who you would oppose have axe to grind. You and those you follow never must be "special".

How about we just discuss the points as opposed to the people?
