A very worrying trend

I must admit to being slightly concerned about the french general election tomorrow. For the first time in modern history, there is a real chance that either a Communist or a fascist could be elected into power in a western liberal democracy. Does this not strike anyone else as alarming? It seems we are regressing to the extremist politics of the thirties. I suppose, in way, that is not surprising, given that we have a financial environment as extreme as it was back then; then as ow, people seem to be getting desperate. It is happening here, in france, and all over the place, including in the states. Whatever happens in france tomorrow, this is a symptom of a very worrying trend; such things rarely bode well for minorities like the disabled.
