My friend, Johnnypain, pointed out that this basically said that "If you have a nose, you may be an American fascist". He's right, but I DID have to go all the way to Z without basically repeating myself... THE ABC's of CONTEMPORARY AMERICAN FASCISM FACISM 1 : a political philosophy, movement, or regime that exalts a nation, organization or establishment above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition 2 : a tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial control You may be an American fascist if you believe that: A. Increasing government's role in economic, social or religious issues is a good thing B. the United States Constitution is an "organic" document that should be changed to reflect the current "culture" C. government should restrict religion and the free practice of it in society. D. personal character assassination is preferred over political discourse. E. if someone does not agree with you that there should be some law to force them to. F. individual ideology based agendas should be forced upon the populace whether they want them or not. Agendas based on political motivation, social development and acceptance, or ethno-centered movement. G. government taxation is a good thing, and must be amplified and safeguarded. H. emotion is morally superior to principle. I. morality is relative. J. choice should only be applicable some of the time, not all and reserved for certain groups. K. feelings trump rationale. L. state enforced education is the key to an enlightened child. M. some individuals in society are entitled to more than others. N. globalization is the key to unity and peace. O. an innocent life should exist only by the will of the people, and guilty life deserves preservation. P. others always know what's best Q. extreme nationalism or idealism R. the rights of the many outweigh the rights of the individual S. that morality should be forced upon those who don't want it--from any direction T. security is more important than freedom U. conscription is constitutionally sound V. rich people should give their wealth to the poor or for government programs for the poor W. seatbelt laws are good precedence X. our politicians have OUR interests in mind Y. our public education system is about education and not indoctrination Z. that either party in Washington is interested in preserving the right of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. ps.

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".

Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.

Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.

In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
