If you ever wanted to know who "THEY" are...

As a Republican and as a US Citizen I find this extremely embarrassing:

RNC document mocks donors, plays on 'fear'

I am going to own it because I have been saying "Dude, where's my Party" for more than a decade now.

If you were to go around saying that the Republican Party was acting in this way, playing off of people's fears for example - you would be called "Paranoid" at best and at worst a "Conspiracy Theorist" and would promptly be invited to don a tinfoil yamaka.

But if you look at the slide above - that is the first thing on the list to play on when trying to get funds by direct marketing.

So at what point do we point to corporate interests having more sway with politicians than citizens do and slick corporate public relations and marketing being used to further an unpopular agenda with mountains of propaganda in concert with actual military and police brutality being used to quell dissent - when do we start calling it Fascism?
