Insightful individuals, who through their words and deeds become cultural creatives, comprise the milieu from which arise the defenders of democracy. These noble champions and great warriors, in turn, inspire the young who are hungry for meaning in an increasingly meaningless world. In the turbulence of social upheaval, they are the voices of reason, the leaders of resistance to fascism–the vanguard of humanity.

The Bonus Expeditionary Force, a.k.a. the Bonus Army, combined with Socialist labor organizers, are largely responsible for forcing Congress and President Roosevelt to implement socialist programs like Social Security and Medicare.

Saddled with Puritanical conservatives, the Republican Party is handicapped from the outset in its dogged pursuit of institutionalizing American fascism. In order to do that, they would need to put people to work, as the Nazi Party did in Germany. Punishing the downtrodden, by withdrawing social program support, only creates resentment among those who might otherwise have been their most loyal recruits.

As it stands, the only employment offered is mercenary work in the military, and while that poses its own problems, it also provides a sub-group of sociological misfits, trained in the science of killing. What could go wrong?

In the zero-sum game of taxes and budgets, Congress decides who pays and who benefits. Mathematically, if some get tax cuts, then others have their taxes go up to cover the shortfall.
