You need to read Jonah's 'Liberal Fascism'. Jonah is no RINO, he is the real deal.

I actually saw all this before I read Jonah's book, since I'm a student of history (WW2 and Ancient Roman). I hadn't paid real close attention to all the details around Fascism and its growth.. and Jonah's book makes good reading from that perspective. We have a hearts and minds problem in the USA.. and it can only be solved by easy going teaching of the truth, not yelling and screaming and insulting the other side. If you want to change the country, gently lead your neighbors to seeing the whole picture.

William F. Buckley once noted that he was 19 when the Cold War began at the Yalta conference. The year the Berlin Wall came down, he became a senior citizen. In other words, he explained, anti-Communism was a defining feature of conservatism his entire adult life. Domestically, meanwhile, the right was largely a "leave me alone coalition": Religious and traditional conservatives, overtaxed businessmen, Western libertarians, and others fed up with government social engineering and economic folly. The foreign policy battle against tyrannical statism abroad only buttressed the domestic antagonism toward well-intentioned and occasionally democratic statism at home.
