Mr. STARK. Mr. Chairman, I yield myself 2\1/2\ minutes.
Mr. Chairman, there are some of us who remember this world in the 1930s, when Hitler suspended the Bundestag to promulgate conservative ideology and not let people speak. It is a shame that the Republicans in the House, Mr. Chairman, have taken up that same ideology and are denying a chance for debate and open discussion of a budget. It does smack of fascism; and it is too bad, because the American people will recognize that and understand that in a free economy, and in a free country that created programs like Social Security and Medicare and special education and aid for dependent children and aid for people who are unable to care for themselves, for the disabled, that to deny them care is obscene.
I think it will be quite clear that, for whatever reason, whether it is deficits or anything else, that the overwhelming desire of the Republican Party is to destroy programs in the Federal Government, except those few intended for the very wealthy.

One idiot, rabid DemocRAT supporter here at work tried that crap on me a couple of months ago. I simply pointed out to him that all socialist parties, by defenition, are left-wing parties. Just like the DemocRATS. He has never brought it up again.
True meaning is thus...
and in an overtaxed
free country that created programs specifically designed to ensure votes for Democrats like Social Security which can be used to scare the elderly and infirm with cutting off their funds but which can also be used by Democrats to fund other social programs and Medicare Which Democrats can use to ensure even more elderly votes and other Democrat constituents that depend upon the Federal hand-out such as special education and aid for dependent children and aid for people who are unable to care for themselves, for the disabled, that to deny the Democrats the ability to buy their votes with tax dollars confiscated from productive Americans them care is obscene.
There, that's more truthful.
Whenever you hear the term N - A - Z - I; remember
It dervies from "National-Sozialistiche" German Workers Party.
In German, the acronym was NSDAP. It is totalitarian Communism with a nationalistic face.
Indeed. I used to get upset with Fourtney. Then I realized that his name is Fourtney. It brings a smile to my face now... My my, look what Fourtney has on his mind! Ha!
The NDSAP WERE rabid social conservatives. So much so that they lurched over the edge into a racial purity mania that led to their destruction. That the Nazi's were economic socialists as well has little to do with their cultural viewpoints.
That said, someone needs to inform Rep. Stark of Godwin's law!
