The USA was never supposed to be a democracy, but a democratic republic. That was to ensure "less democracy".

That's not what he means and you know it. We didn't all of a sudden move away from the Constitutional Republic...YET. This man is speaking what the Left has on their minds. DICTATORSHIP!

Peter Orszag probably just has some fond memories of his pre-1989 Hungary.

How do you know what he means? Do you have access to the original article? I can only read part of it.

I don't claim to know what he means. I only provided what I know about USA. So, you're either a mind reader (or one who believes to be great at) or you've long held the idea that the USA was always meant to be a democracy. The idiot who said that was no fool...

"The great strength of the totalitarian state is that it forces those who fear it to imitate it."

Yawn. I don't think I have the time to summarize all the things "the left" wants to do to this country.

They want socialism.
They want communism.
They want death panels.
They want to destroy America.
They want a dictatorship.
They want to destroy industry.
They want to make us a third-world country.
They want the white race to disappear.
They want to abolishing Christianity.
They want to brainwash our youth.

I am sure the list could go on and on.

With all this paranoia, isn't it time you guys took up arms and defended this country? Or, perhaps, you all just need some counseling?

It's about time that all non-white, intellectual, non-christian commies be arrested and placed in camps to await execution.
