    The Govt. needs to protect us from Corporate greed so all of us can benefit from prosperity. That requires a STRONGER Govt.
    No, if corporations are getting their power from government, then the obvious solution is to reduce the power of government. A stronger government just means more opportunity for lobbying the government.

    The weaker our Govt. gets the more influence that corporations will have over it. Corporations are now "people" for God's sake. How can the Govt. let that happen?

    That's what happens when you let an appointed panel of nine judges change what the laws mean.

    Agreed, but what's the alternative?

    Not true. The more our government spends and taxes, the more corporations have the incentive corporations have to lobby it.

    Obama's ACA legislations shows us that it is left wing, forced commerce by a government, sound familiar?

    It sounds like an insane interpretation of a government action.

Fascists were very much left wing, but they looked like right wing extremists compared to the communists, so they decided to call the communists left wing and call the fascists right wing to avoid confusion.
    Fascism is left wing because you cannot own a business or large home if you don't toe the line that the ruling party draws.. If you don't toe the line, they take your business and give it to someone who will. It is far right of either communism or socialism in that it allows private property at all. In socialism the government owns all the business and makes sure that everyone is paid equally, and in communism the gov't owns everything and makes sure that everyone has everything they need.
    So fascism is far right of communism but still pretty far left of American conservatism. It's somewhere in the middle.
    Just because it's right-wing doesn't mean it's comparable to the United States. Fascism is second only to communism when it comes to sociopolitical policies that Americans don't understand at all, but hate it anyway.

    A contemporary example of this phenomena is the, "Communist in name only," government of modern China. Private property and entrepenuership are technically allowed, but they are all subject to strict government oversight, and membership in the ruling party is basically required to have any chance of breaking into the market whatsoever.

    Not exactly. It is the upper class wealth seizing the gov't with bribes, collusion, mutual benefits and I identified those beneficiaries. It's the Republican wet dream.
