    If, in our efforts to win, we become as dishonest as our opponents on the right, we don't deserve to triumph.

        acquired over many years. Doubt you'll find much in any "profile" on me, I try to stay under the radar.

        (And as a serious sailor/mariner/pilot/boat owner and electronic nut with seven different real radar sets (JRC & Raymarine), I am set to "early warn" 24/7, heh.)

        of exchanges.
        Where I'm coming from:
        I lost the majority of my extended family (people I didn't know but who were close relatives of people I knew well) to the Nazis and have a very low tolerance for Nazi comparisons.
        In addition, the tea party signs accusing Obama of being a socialist, and a Nazi, and a Hitler were so disgusting I really don't want people on our side looking like that.
        I think the Walker forces are despicable and will do anything they can get away with to keep power. And I also believe that people like them are the base used by the most powerful and corrupt.
        However, a sheriff who is somewhat verbally intimidating, unfair and unsupported by real laws but not physically violent or threatening to the health and safety of the volunteers is a whole different thing from the Brown Shirts or the SS.

        If, in our efforts to win, we become as dishonest as our opponents on the right, we don't deserve to triumph.

          with the tattoos on their arms, survivors I guess, though nothing was ever much discussed (in the '50's, and I barely knew anything, my mom may have said something once). They seemed to be sad, even to a child like me (I'm not Jewish either), I can only imagine.

          However, you perhaps give that sheriff too much credit (pure cynicism on my part), you plainly don't realize the extent of what is going on "under the radar".
          I actually live in an area where gruppen like the KKK, neo-confederate, and neo-nazi groups are active. And they are/vote republican/teabagger.
          I commented on that possibility in Wisconsin because I (from afar) see similar 'tells'. Perhaps they are where you are too, if you would but see (not trying to create another 'paranoid', there may be enough of us already, heh).
