    And some associate Conservatism for Fascism.
    Only conservative people fought Hitler - I can't
    think of any Communists who fought Socialists.

    Liberals don't believe in history. Tell them it was Democrats who
    supported slavery or had slaves (not one Republican member)
    and it was Democrats who were behind the KKK and Segregation.
    These facts have quietly slipped from the history books - and that's
    worse than openly burning books.

    Perhaps you don't know the difference between Democrats and Dixiecrats.

    So the New Democratic Party is in favor of communism...

    I guess that answers that question.

    I think so.. I was a Republican for 35 years.. and quit the party when Bush invaded Iraq.

    Do you think Republicans are opposed to civil rights for gays, transgenders etc?

    No, I don’t. I’m British and Conservative but I am socially fairly liberal which I suppose is the equivalent of a liberal republican. You have a good point, I suppose we are never fully represented as it’s such a wide spectrum!

    In America our education is so poor that the average person thinks Hitler was a socialist.

    He definitely used socialism as an undercurrent to achieving ultra nationalism but most certainly wasn’t just a socialist.

    Hitler wasn't a socialist at all. He killed socialists and communists. Stalin and Mussolini were both conservatives.

    His fiscal policies of taking over the means of production during the German depression were socialist policies.

    They didn't take over the means of production.

    I’m fairly sure they did my friend. I can’t imagine a lot of private investment can you? He pretty much guaranteed a job to every German and created one where needed. Along with holiday pay, sick and maternity pay etc. Of course it was all in disguise to reach his true goals.

    Hitler was NOT a socialist. He tried to wipe out socialsts and communists... and he aligned himself with industrialists.. and did away with trade unions.

    In America, our education is so poor the average liberal thinks members of the Republican party would support Hitler and his objectives.

    I did say my friend that he wasn't a socialist but used socialist policies.

    It is a difficult one and a question with no clear answer. He privatised industry but under a framework of increasing government control. I don't think we can come to an agreement overall but we are in agreement that he wasn't a true socialist.

    Yes, you know something is wrong with the country when Lefties and Righties both condone torture and perpetual war brought under fraud.

    You should look at the chart again. Hitler was conservative as well.. and his Nazism was just another form of Fascism.. He tried to eradicate all socialists and communists.

    I have not mentioned Hitler. Why are you stuck on Hitler?

    I'm looking at the chart you posted, and aligning it with the policies and agenda of the New Democratic Party. Your chart indicates the NDP is moving towards Communism.
