Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
We can't compete with Arkansas, I think.

You had better hope so, unless you LIKE life on the plantation.  :-)

And the same dynamic you discussed for Germany has been happening for forty years in the USA. Some of the most reactionary elements, sadly also very wealthy, have spent large sums of money on think tanks and media to make what was, 40 years ago, a moderately progressive left into the next best thing to Stalinism and to make what was nutter right wing crazy the new center right. We should be so lucky as to be able to elect an Eisenhower today.
