I'm a 16 year-old Canadian-born Chinese who thinks he's got a good head on his shoulders. I know, I'm young and I haven't seen all that much.
But has American Politics always been as extreme as what we are currently seeing? Really, it's appalling for a country that considers itself to be a world leader. Inciting hate against Islam, Birth Certificates, comparisons to Nazism and Marxism ... what's next? I generally tend to be able to disagree with people on government policy without comparing them to Hitler.
I don't want to debate about whether or not Obama's policy is similar to Hitler's - I really do think that anyone with their mind out of the gutter realizes it's not, and that won't be subject to change in this thread.
I just want to hear everyone's opinion on how American Politics has changed within the past 50 years concerning everything BUT government policy. Someone with more life experience than me, at least. Is all of this conspiring ... new?
By the way, I think the Swastika with an Eagle on top of it looks more like the United States Marine Corps insignia than it does the Obama Heath Care logo. Not that I think that it matters.
