He's so retarded it's hysterical. I do agree that socialism and liberalism are closer to Nazism than conservatism... but it's a far, far cry from Nazism.

I mean, when he said that Obama started getting people to report the other people who make arguments against healthcare, I was half expecting Rush to claim that they (people on the reported list) would be killed.

The fact that you've included the word "biznatch" in this topic invalidates any opinion you may henceforth give.

And everyone hates Rush Limbaugh.
You're*

I wouldn't hate him so much if his rhetoric wasn't so full of inaccurate labels, bombastic language, and accusations that everyone who opposes his view of the world is somehow stupid, insane, or evil. I haven't listened to him in a long time, though. I suppose I will again sometime to keep my critique a little more fresh.

Even with that second part, this statement is still retarded.

Political Compass disagrees with you.

Actually, conservatism is closer to Nazism, since the Nazi government was basically fascism, which is on the far right of the political spectrum. But that's still like saying gorillas are more closely related to eggplants than chimpanzees are. The distance is so great that it doesn't really matter.

I disagree. Liberalism in extreme examples can lead to both fascist and communist governments (large government control). Conservatism, if anything is closer to anarchy (small government). These are all extreme examples.

You're thinking of neoconservativism, which isn't really conservativism at all.

It's already practically mandated in the US from all the social pressure to get your sons circumcised. I want my foreskin BACK, dammit!

You need to read up on your politics a bit better me thinks. First of all there's no such thing as a communist government, communism is stateless. Second of all conservatism is nothing like anarchism, anarchists promote the idea of no government and all consistent anarchists are socialists, whereas most conservatives are capitalists and advocate the smallest state possible (Minarchism)

Anarchy isn't simply lack of government. Anarchy is a movement against hierarchy, which makes it a movement against capitalism as well.

But, now I'm off subject. Liberalism is capitalist. It believes that Capitalism can be regulated and everything will be fine. That's really cooperative control between companies and the government.

Communism believes that eliminating capital by absorbing it into government will allow the "working class" to control society. It's direct government control rather than simple regulation. Thankfully, we've all seen this form of economics fall on it's face in our lifetimes.

I'm not sure why Fascism is considered right wing. I think it's because while there is some government run industry, ultimately the majority of the economy will be(I think) business controlled. Remember that Hitler shored up his power with big business.

Of course, let us not forget libertarian socialism while we're talking about economics. This system has been proven to work, it is a social system which believes in freedom of action and thought and free will, in which the producers possess both political power and the means of producing and distributing goods.

The other people in this thread are also right, these differences are so big that the beliefs can barely be called similar.

If Rush Limbaugh made subtle hints without comparing the liberals to Nazis, he could be taken slightly more seriously. Slightly.

Now, I consider myself more of a conservative.... But not by much. I'm a liberal when it comes to social issues (like abortion, although I think it should be restricted, not encouraged, gay marriage, etc.) but a conservative when it comes to business and such things. And I think of Limbaugh as a total fool. I attribute a large portion of the downfall of the Republican party to him and other crazies.

That would make you a socially-left libertarian. Maybe. Libertarian might be too extreme.

Hell, isn't there a fair portion of the Republicans that dislike Rush? I know I've seen a few interviews where the Republican being interviewed admits that he/she thinks that Rush is a total idiot.
