I never get credit for anything I do. Mr. Grimes dictated the answers to me I transcribed them for him, which is why he's referred to in a third-person and is often called His Highness or Excellency in such interviews.

Hail Grimes!

My apologies, I was wondering if it was someone else, I wasn't sure though, as all I received were the answers. I'm rewording the article to reflect your contribution. -- Zanimum (talk) 19:26, 5 September 2008 (UTC)[reply]


Fascism is no better option,loudmouth. Obama is the Us president in the making. Kanu promise nnaemeka from nigeria. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:50, 5 September 2008 (UTC)[reply]

It's not April 1st, so why the article?[edit]

Wow. I don't think the English Lexicon is capable of describing the ludicrous nature of a Fascist party campaigning in a Democratic society. My question is: how on earth would one man in the Executive Office of the United States of America be able to possibly turn America into a fascist state? You'd basically have to burn Down Washington DC and brainwash the world into forgetting that a place like America existed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:55, 5 September 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Yes, that is a good point. So long as there is a process for impeachment, he logically wouldn't be able to govern. (And of course, even if he revokes that process, there's always good old-fashion revolutionary action.) -- Zanimum (talk) 14:54, 8 September 2008 (UTC)[reply]


Hey wasn't that what Adolph Hitler was? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:11, 6 September 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Nazism is considered a variation of fascism, yes. -- Zanimum (talk) 14:54, 8 September 2008 (UTC)[reply]
Without bothering to look it up, I believe fascism is simply the belief that the individual doesn't matter, and instead everyone should essentially worship the state. The Romulans on Star Trek are fascists. So are the Cardassians. It's basically the extreme far end of patriotism (or at least that's part of what makes them fascist). If that's the case, then I think it is technically possible to have a fascist "democracy" even though fascism is normally associated with a dictatorship, though I wouldn't want to live in such a place.

Why not interview my dead grandmother? I believe she's running for president as well.[edit]

The article states, "Note that Grimes appears not to have qualified for either ballot status or as a formally recognized write-in candidate in any state, according to Politics1."

At the start of the article we see, "Throughout the 2008 United States Presidential election campaign, Wikinews reporters have been talking to candidates of all political stripes, looking for their vision of America and campaign stories. This series continues now with Jackson Kirk Grimes of the United Fascist Union (UFU)."

So how is the loon fascist Grimes actually a candidate? If no one can vote for him because he's not on any ballot... then he's not really a candidate. --Quadrastreet (talk) 23:40, 9 September 2008 (UTC)[reply]
