If you don't ask then how do you know how many there are?

You are correct. I despair for the education of our citizens today. Mussolini was a RABID Socialist, working tirelessly to control business and capital in Italy (i.e. Fascism) with the aim of then nationalizing everything and becoming a Socialist state. What he figured out, and Hitler as well, was that Fascism gave them far more personal power than Socialism ever would -- and so began the Fascist states of Italy and Germany. Marxism does have three phases. First comes Fascism, with expanding government control of business and capital, followed by Socialism where the government control is expanded to full government ownership of business and capital. This is then followed by Communism where the Sociaist government turns over ownership of business and capital to the people. None of this requires violent revolution. That was just the tool people like Lenin, Stalin, and Mao used. We are seeing a peaceful implementation of it here in the US as Obama and the Marxist Democrats work every day to exert more and more control over business and capital in this country -- Fascism. That is why business and capital are fleeing this country in ever increasing numbers.
"savage the president’s efforts to address a pressing nationwide crisis" I still want to know what pressing nationwide crisis we are facing in regards to illegal immigration? Is it a nationwide crisis that Obama can't simply annoint all illegal aliens as citizens?
Members of white supremacy groups *may* be Christians but that is *NOT* the focus of the groups reason for being. Islam, on the other hand, *IS* the focus of the groups reason for being when it comes to Islamic terrorism.
Obama, his spokespeople, Susan Rice, and the State Dept have all claimed in the past two weeks taht ISIS is *NOT* an existential threat. Why is Obama now wanting to wage war on a non-existential threat?
You nailed it! This administration is the *most* opaque of any Presidency in recent history, and that includes Nixon! Whenever they claim something, like being the most transparent, you can rest assured that the truth is the exact opposite. "Benghazi was not an Al Qaeda inspired attack", "not a trace of corruption", "we did not traffic AK-47's to Mexican drug cartels", and on and on and on......

Civil marriage is an ENTITLEMENT, not a right. No one has a "right" to an entitlement. If they did we would all get food stamps and Social Security! Society has the "right" to define who it decides to bestow entitlements upon, including civil marriage. Many states, and even the nation, has spoken on this -- and the courts are trampling on the "right" of the people to decide upon what segments of society it will bestow entitlements. Down this road lies utter destruction of the nation. For someone *will* sue for equal treatment under the law for food stamps and Social Sec. and then the nation will lie totally bankrupt, unable to fullful its responsibilities for lack of funds.
Did you actually *read* the article or just issue a knee-jerk reaction based on the man's name? ":Terrible things have been done in the name of Christianity. I have yet to meet a Christian who denies this." The issue is that Christianity has evolved *past* this kind of activity. The issue is that Islam remains mired in the same jihad it was mired in during the time of the Crusades. BTW, far more people have been killed by atheists than anyone. Lenin, Stalin, Pol Pot, Mao, Ho Chi Minh, Castro, guevara, Genghis Khan, and Idi Amin come to mind.
It's called moral relativism. The philosophy of the left.
