Dupes of the Republican party need to be reminded that in 2001, George W. Bush(R) was president, Denny Hastert(R) was Speaker of the House (until 2007), and Trent Lott(R) was Senate MAJORITY Leader and later Bill Frist(R) was Senate MAJORITY Leader until 2007.

I followed up with, "Well, that money used to be my money." The Republican abruptly said, "It's not anymore." http://www.wnd.com/?pageId=11047 "If this Republican Congress bails out the airline industry, who's next?"

Here's a conversation with a Republican in 2001 concerning George W. Bush giving American airline companies $15 billion dollars. I asked, "Isn't that socialism?" He said, "what do you mean?" I said, "Well, George Bush and the Republican Congress gave several American airline companies billions of dollars each and then they turned around, gave out a stock dividend to shareholders, and then the CEO's and upper management received millions of dollars in bonuses! Wasn't this a redistribution of wealth from american taxpayer's?" The Republican said, "No, it is not a redistribution of wealth. It's an example of small government and free markets, and anyone who complains about it is a socialist!"
Republicans have a penchant for overstatement; one of their favorite words is 'radical.' Republicans tend to cast conflict in apocalyptic terms. Sound familiar? It's the same language Adolf Hitler used in 'Mein Kampf,'.......except the enemies of Hitler were the Jews instead of the liberals.
Any of this sound familiar? Adolf Hitler instructed members of the Nazi party to talk like this about their enemies. Who were the enemies of the Nazi party our dear readers my be pondering?
Proof positive the modern day Republican party is like the Nazi party. Look at how the Republicans use language and have a love for rhetorical excess. In 1996, Gingrich, with the help of political consultant/pollster Frank Luntz, issued a memo to Republican candidates through the GOP political action committee offering tips on how to "speak like Newt." The memo offered some of Gingrich's favorite words and phrases to describe opponents: "radical," "bizarre," "sick," "pathetic," "corrupt," "cheat," and "anti", as in anti-flag, anti-family, anti-child or anti-jobs.
A card-carrying Republican says, "What if I prefer the Founders ideal of self reliance & believe everyone should be self reliant?" Hmmmmm....is this Republican talking about the Bush bank bailouts, the insurance company bailouts, the ethanol mandates, the Wall Street bailouts, the auto bailout, the airline bailout, the Big Pharma handout, agricultural subsidies, pork barrel spending and the Republican party's 'Faith-Based Initiatives,' to name just a few of the Republican wealth redistribution schemes. Are these card-carrying Republicans talking about self-reliance for the poor but ENDLESS HANDOUTS for corporations with political connections and contributions to the Republican party?

and yes, Saddam did have WMD in the 1980's, and used them, when Ronald Reagan gave them the green light to use them on his own citizens.

It's a shame that many of my fellow conservatives take glee in the fact that 2,000 Americans have now made the ultimate sacrifice in Afghanistan. It's too bad they have forgotten that AFGHANISTAN is where AL-QAEDA attacked the USA from on 9-11 and were given sanctuary by the Taliban. These dupes of Republican party propaganda still believe that Saddam had something to do with 9-11 or they still, mistakenly believe, that Saddam had WMD in the year 2003.
