But I still must vehemently disagree with your asserting that either Obama and I am somehow advocating fascism. Fascism is an evil ideology of racism, eugenics and ultranationalism, which neither Obama nor myself have ever advocated. I am certainly espousing a statist ideology, but I do not subscribe to the notion that statism and fascism are one and the same. Moreover, my own ideas regarding multinational corporations are decidedly left-wing, whereas fascist economic ideologies are decidedly right-wing. My ideas are certainly statist, and you might even consider them tyrannical, but this is not fascism, nor is it marxism for that matter. It is a left-wing economic pragmatism.

And you demonstrated that same level of ignorance when you said Bush was a fascist.Did you miss the part where I said, "Say whatever you like about Obama?" The only thing I'm criticizing in an inadequate understanding of the terms "marxism" and "fascism" that betray an ignorance (or in the case of BmanMcFly a very unusual interpretation) of political theory.

People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
But I feel I must point out that, while I am "closer to Marxism" than fascism, I am still much closer to the center than anything else.

I don't think Obama would EVER admit to being a fascist, but his actions are defining this for him at the moment. You better recognize it for what it is.... republican / democrat is a lie... they are both the left and right wing of the 'big government' party. Through the system of free-market capitalism, a system of cronyism has taken place that's gone unchecked for so long, that now the 'solution' is to have government take control over corporate interests. This takeover IS fascism.
Bottom line is that I will heartily oppose all measures that conflict with the bill of rights and constitution. However, if there is an end to those protections, then the people will quickly learn WHY those measures were put in place to start.
