In early 2011 the Old Man took a broad look at the political landscape of our country. When I compared what we have today - the results of gradual changes over the past 30-plus years - to what we had 40 years ago, a horrifying picture emerged. It takes absolutely no imagination to see where we are headed: governance by fascism.

The links above are to the original post on the subject and my original chart of how we got to where we are today. This document covers new events and occurrences since then that add support to the claim.

Follow the links below to find attempts to stifle or kill support for the opposition and expose the GOP. Subject matter includes the disruption of commoner's to organized, assemble, vote, and be heard, as well as efforts to control the news media and publications.

This document is evergreen; therefore it is update periodically.

Former Republican Senator:
GOP May Have Gone So Far Overboard That We Are Beyond Redemption

❖❖❖❖❖

Fascism Has Come to America Courtesy of the GOP - Fascism is a conservative philosophy of government that stresses the primacy and glory of the state, unquestioning obedience to its leader, subordination of the individual will to the state's authority, and harsh suppression of dissent. A right-wing nationalist ideology or movement with a totalitarian hierarchical structure that is fundamentally opposed to democracy and liberalism and instills a will to dominate in people's character but protects businesses and landowning elites while preserving class systems.

It does not take a rocket scientist to understand exactly what is occurring with many of the newly elected Tea Party Republican Governors; all who have begun to show their 'cards' in dealing the American workers a 'hand' that will drive every middle class family into oblivion and enact real 'death panels' for the elderly, sick and children.

Not only are these Republican governors seeking complete control and elimination of democracy, they are funded by Corporate Koch Brothers Industries who are seeking to install an elite ruling class over the will of the people and the U. S. Constitution, they are following a fascist plan to install corporations in place of the U.S. Government.

Totalitarian Democracy - "Those of us who have wondered how fascism would come, if and when it came, did not sufficiently credit the possibility that it would arrive through the process of law and 'freely chosen' representatives of the people."

The Brennan Center for Justice at the New York University School of Law monitors a wide range of public policing-making. Among those are changes to voting rights. The Center has produced a publication of voting law changes in 2012, which is an update of their 2011 report.

A full PFD report is available. A summary of the voting law changes is also available, and reads as follows:


Over the past century, our nation expanded the franchise and knocked down myriad barriers to full electoral participation. In 2011, however, that momentum abruptly shifted.

State governments across the country enacted an array of new laws making it harder to register or to vote. Some states require voters to show government-issued photo identification, often of a type that as many as one in ten voters do not have. Other states have cut back on early voting, a hugely popular innovation used by millions of Americans. Two states reversed earlier reforms and once again disenfranchised millions who have past criminal convictions but who are now taxpaying members of the community. Still others made it much more difficult for citizens to register to vote, a prerequisite for voting.

These new restrictions fall most heavily on young, minority, and low-income voters, as well as on voters with disabilities. This wave of changes may sharply tilt the political terrain for the 2012 election. Based on the Brennan Center's analysis of the 19 laws and two executive actions that passed in 14 states, it is clear that:
  • These new laws could make it significantly harder for more than five million eligible voters to cast ballots in 2012.
  • The states that have already cut back on voting rights will provide 171 electoral votes in 2012 - 63 percent of the 270 needed to win the presidency.
  • Of the 12 likely battleground states, as assessed by an August Los Angeles Times analysis of Gallup polling, five have already cut back on voting rights (and may pass additional restrictive legislation), and two more are currently considering new restrictions.
States have changed their laws so rapidly that no single analysis has assessed the overall impact of such moves. Although it is too early to quantify how the changes will impact voter turnout, they will be a hindrance to many voters at a time when the United States continues to turn out less than two thirds of its eligible citizens in presidential elections and less than half in midterm elections.

This study is the first comprehensive roundup of all state legislative action thus far in 2011 on voting rights, focusing on new laws as well as state legislation that has not yet passed or that failed. This snapshot may soon be incomplete: the second halves of some state legislative sessions have begun.

The following reports are only a few from the Brennan Center on voter suppression.

John Bolton: We Shouldn't Accept Outcome Of "Free And Fair" Elections If It's Not In Our National Interest

"If Husted's Electoral College plan for Ohio in '16 was now in place everywhere, Mitt would have won"

A Party Gone Mad - Today's Republicans are Yesterday's Fascists - "Growing up, I always wondered how an entire nation could go mad. I was thinking about Nazi Germany, and millions of good, decent Germans, seeming to lose their minds for Hitler and National Socialism and its repressive brutality. I never thought I was[sic] see it for myself. It would be a long time, I told myself, before a nation would lose itself again as Germany had in the 30s. Then came the 2008 elections and the Tea Party" [Bold added].
