This time, Bush fascism is really here to stay!

Ted Rall is so in love with Bush fascism that he can't believe it could ever possibly end:

We'll be cleaning up Bush's mess long after his scheduled abdication on January 20, 2009. But the trillions of dollars in national debt he has run up and his two losing wars will drain our economy for decades to come. We've provoked a new generation of terrorists. Yet even more damaging and nearly impossible to unravel will be the threats to Americans posed by the neofascist national security apparatus the Bushists will leave behind--unless they use it to remain in power.
(Via PJM.)

What this means, of course, is that whether Bush leaves office or not, Bush fascism will forever live on. And it will all of course be Bush's fault either way. Because Generalissimo Bush, being the greatest and most brilliant fascist of all time (despite being a moronic chimpanzee) has built a permanent, undefeatable structure.

But lest anyone think Bush will have to go through with the "abdication," fear not! The ever-flexible Rall (who predicted that the 2004 elections would never be held) has realigned his predictions again, and still holds out hope the Bushists won't have to hand over the fascist power apparatus to successors. Instead, they'll have to impose tyranny now (although I thought they already did! hmmm...) to save their skins:

As ugly secrets surface, Bushists will turn desperate. Democracy has failed their grand schemes; token resignations like Rumsfeld's come too little, too late. Only tyranny can save their skins. Will the beleaguered neocons led by Cheney and Bush, cornered like rats, unleash their brand-new police state on their political opponents? Or will they tough it out and suck up the fines and prison sentences to come? The next year or two could go either way.

The nightmare is not over.

Well, at least Rall doesn't want it to be over.

For what it's worth, shortly before the election I tried to warn the Democrats that if they wanted to stop Bush fascism, they should let the Republicans win.

The Republicans have to lose!

Otherwise, if they keep winning elections, how will they ever be able to seize control, cancel the Constitution, and declare martial law?

And for that remark, Karl Rove threatened me in the comments section:
Geez, now you've gone and told our super secret plan.

I'll see you in Gitmo.

I was just trying to save the country! Honest, people. I really thought I could stop the Bush fascists by letting the Democrats know about their plan to implement fascism if they lost the election.

The Democrats had their chance, but nobody ever listens.

We may have been exaggerating before folks, but this time, it's really gonna be Bush fascism!

Geez, Democrats are going to blame everything that goes wrong for the next twenty years on Bush, aren't they?

On the flip side, if the economy continues to do well, Democrats will be positive about it for the first time in the last six years!

Why Conservatives Are So Angry

Debt Matters

We elect congressmen and congresswomen to represent our interests. We vote for self-described fiscal hawks who favor less government. But all we get is:

• A Congress that represents the lobbyist-money-changers in Washington
• A near $9 trillion debt
• An explosion in government spending that puts Liberal tax-and-spenders like Lyndon Johnson to shame

Integrity Matters

The moral lapses of the Clinton administration were, of course, distressing. We voted for self-described conservative representatives who claimed they would do better. But all we got was a never-ending chain of scandals ranging from sex crimes to bribe-taking to gambling promotion.

Each is driven by a combination of greed, power-lust, and arrogance. Of course, mistakes do happen. But even when individuals are caught red-handed, they refuse to take responsibility. All that results is finger pointing and excuses from congressmen hiding in rehabilitation centers. Misbehaving congressmen should be removed—period. Are we supposed to look up the definition of is again?

Immigration Matters

We are a country of laws. If you don’t like a law, change it. But a government that intentionally refuses to enforce select laws is weakening the whole “rule of law” and breaking its most sacred pledge to the governed.

Some employers are using illegal immigration to drive down wages and eliminate hard-working Americans from their payrolls. And of illegal immigrants gangs run roughshod over our communities, bringing with them:

• Violence (and the threat of violence)
• Crystal meth and other illegal drugs
• Prostitution
• And perhaps terrorists

Yet Congress and the White House repeatedly turn a blind eye in exchange for big business campaign donations and lobbying loot. The best they’ve done is pass a lame fence bill that covers no more than 10% of the problem (and they aren’t even obligated to follow through on that much). Yet many existing laws remain un-enforced.

What Should We Conservatives Do?

The Democratic Party is not the answer. It is at best beset by the same corruption as the Republican Party, and at worst completely at odds with our values. The only practical solution is to challenge Republican incumbents who fail to:

• Vote against bloated spending bills
• Demand immigration reform
• Hold their fellow members to the highest level of ethical conduct

We must stop giving money to any candidate who represents special interests over our interests.
