Because in western Europe, after the wounds of fascist regimes, people such as Santorum, Perry, Bachman, Palin are assimilatd to extreme-right wing, whose nickname is fascism.

why? because of their religious fanatism, their backward points of view, their opposition to most basic women's rights (such as abortion, contraceptive pills for examples), their homophobia, their laws that forbid workers to protect themselves from greed of corporations, their laws against political freedom and freedom of speech (such as patriot act, such as breaking unions protests, such as forbidding people to strike, and so forth), and the fact that they give all power to companies, corporations, banks and greedy employers.

This is all kinds of wrong

I am extremely glad he didn't win the nomination. But in retrospect, I'm not glad that Ron Paul lost.

Very cool. Not just the info, but the fact that if you look carefully, the poster turns 3D.

Well placed analogy.

I cannot understand how any American can stand by Santorum. This is just sad and says a lot about how dumb Americans are today. I see why this guy voted for No Child left Behind.

Far too true, and in a way, it would be most beneficial if Santorum did become the Republican candidate. I say this because he would be completely unelectable rather than mostly unelectable like Romney. It would be much better to have a nut with a small following run for President than a more "moderate" Republican like Romney who just might have a chance of beating Obama.

However, I think Romney getting the nomination is far more likely at this point. He needs only a third of possible delegates to get the nomination, whereas Santorum or Gingrich would need nearly two thirds if not more. Regardless of who is the Republican nominee, I sincerely doubt Obama will lose the election in November...

Not that I genuinely like Obama either. He is, for all intents and purposes, the lesser of two evils. Much as any Democrat, really...

I know Santorum may not win, but whatever, in my country he would probably be banned from politic (anti-secularism is something people really don't appreciate here), and he may have problems with justice/law because of his homophobia (our prime minister is gay(wich means here : the leader of the country ), or be rejected by most of population.
That's why I make such deviation, because I can't understand how some people can vote for someone who's so close to fascism. There're people like him as well in Belgium as well of course, but they're labelled fascists, and represent only a low percentage of population actually.

The PM of Belgium is gay? How fascinating. A rather splendid example to the rest of the world, I believe.

Most European political systems would likely frown on a good few of the Republican politicians here. I personally believe that US politics is a rather stagnant and fetid arena.

And if we must be honest, I think many conservative Americans have had a secret love affair with Fascism since before the Second World War. Especially in the "Old South" and perhaps Alaska. No one would ever admit to it, of course, but in some manner Fascism is alive and well in the United States.

the interesting thing in your reply is how fascinating a gay PM may look in USA, here people don't care at all about this, or at least, don't seem to care. it's a bit like that : "he's gay? ok." (or "he's gay, so?"). I mean, they don't talk about it in the medias, it doesn't come on debate table, and there are no demonstrations in the street to complain about it. It's the same thing with religion, people usually don't know what is the faith of their politicians, and they globally don't care as well. The guy can be catholic, protestant or atheist, it doesn't matter,a politician won't be rejected because of it; afterall Belgium is a secular country.
Belgium is far from being perfect, but at least people seem to focus on what the candidate proposes, on his/her political actions and reforms he/she may have made, rather than focus on futile non-political details such as the sexual orientation and personnal faith. while in USA, from what I see from here, a big part of people seem to focus first on the religion of the candidate, and some other private-life details. In two words, people focus on things that have nothing to do with politic and abilities to gerate and handle the country. For example, Santorum got a good number of votes in MA only because he's catholic (lots of cathos in MA). Like if because this candidate doesn't belong to each or each faith, it would make him/her not able to run a country correctly.

And yes, I guess some Republicans would have a heart-attack in Europe, I think especially about countries such as Norway, Sweden, Netherlands, Spain, Belgium, Denmark, and France as well. in Scandinavian countries, Netherlands, Belgium, Spain and I think Portugal as well now, homosexuals have full right of marriage, and can even adopt. In Netherlands marijuana is legal, and they're sexually very open. In France, Belgium, Sweden and Norway (not sure about other countries, Germany is a bit particular) religion is globally out of public sphere/political debates, and creationism is "forbidden". And then, Belgium, Sweden and Norway have such health care and social security that they would be labelled "communist" by the most ignorant conservatives. all the EU is trying to force Belgium to stop the salary indexation (if there's an inflation of 3%, all the salaries/wages will increase of 3%). Plus the fact that in Finland and Belgium, around 70% of population is member of a trade union.
Globally, Palin, Perry, Bachman, Herman Cain, Santorum and others of the same kind, if they had to make politic in Western Europe, would have to go in extreme-right wing parties, and would be labelled fascists, or fanatics, or christian integrists by the progressives. Liberals and social-democrats are the most powerful political families, with centrits and sometimes ecologists.

About fascism and USA, this deviation is quite interesting :[link] (more about nazism, but this guy is an interesting fellow, he has in his gallery a lot of good political documented satires about "american heroes", and as well honouring deviations about the ones who fought for more justice, and natives (he's a member of the AIM)
And indeed for anyone with a bit of political knowledge or conscience, there're many similarities between fascists and the most radical wing of the Republican party.

Frankly, my fascination was more awe of social tolerances. I find it most impressive, considering it's taken the US this long to even elect a half-black president. Hell, we have yet to elect a female leader, which is something that has been common enough in Europe.

Yes, for as secular as the US is, there are places where religion and faith most certainly matter in the polls. It makes very little sense to vote based on "This guy is just like me, so I'm going to vote for him."

It is a fortunate thing that it is only the most radical Republicans that could be equated to Fascists. Otherwise, we might be in trouble...
