The final Seventh District Congressional candidate to speak at the Lincoln Ladies Ice Cream Social at Memorial Hall in Carthage Monday night served up some red meat to the crowd.
Former Rep. Steve Hunter, R-Joplin, told the crowd the United States was in the middle of "economic fascism." What is going on under Obama is the same type of economic fascism that took place in Europe in World War II, Hunter said.
"Read about Adolf Hitler. It's exactly the same thing."
Hunter, unlike most of his opponents, used the three-minute speaking time to offer a list of specific proposals, including eliminating the income tax. putting an end to the Federal Reserve (it's not federal and it's not reserve) and "term limit the bums that are up there."
