50. here's a piece by Ezra Klein in VOX that I believe makes the case for getting real about fascism

http://www.vox.com/2015/4/24/8489065/politics-negative-partisanship-fear

it says, essentially, that both parties move their voters based on fear that the other is a "threat to the nation's well-being."

but here's the catch! Democrats are lag R's by 9-points in our ability to raise the threat level. everyone here on this board is sick to death of R's screaming "nazi" at every move obama makes. But they do it for a reason -- b/c it works to move their voters. they don't care if it's TRUE or not.

on our side it actually is TRUE that we're dealing with fascistic elements attempting to amass control...and yet we want to pussyfoot around with academic words like "plutocracy." you know what the average joe thinks Plutocracy is rule by this guy:



If they only realized how close they are b/c it's actually rule by Disney.
