    [QUOTE=Winston Smith; Our own society is already tending to fascism, just as theirs is.[/QUOTE]

    Fascism has turned out to be more of a political buzzword than a government system.

    The dictionary defines it as...a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism...

    As you can see, none applies to the US...

    The midnset that you are entitled to a certain standard of living, and that if you haven't been able to provide that standard for yourself, it's someone else's fault.
    Nonsense... The people looking for work may feel persecuted, but not the 90+ percent majority who have jobs.

    Please be more specific... What did all the American people do to their own country that hurt the most?

    Look up economic fascism.

    Look how well pacifism worked for Neville Chamberlain. >>

    Knowing British aristocratic arrogance, Chamberlain's demands probably pissed Hitler off.

    The economics of fascism refers to the economic policies implemented by fascist governments. Fascism is an authoritarian, nationalist and corporatist ideology largely influenced by Marxist socialist economic theory,

    Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Still no connection with the US economics...

    Corporatism has no connection with US economics?

    Take your first definition of fascism and add : "and involves the merger of government and corporate power".

    The bank bailout IS fascism, Obama's handling of the auto industry is fascism, letting insurance companies WRITE the health care bill is fascism, etc

    Also, JUST BECAUSE Obama was elected and has the 'velvet glove' doesn't make him ANY less of a dictator... rather then the executor he's supposed to be... and when they kick him out in 2012 or 2016, then a new guy will come in and act as dictator...so, the dictatorship is in the OFFICE of the presidency, rather then the puppet sitting in the presidential chair.

    Strange conservative-tea party reasoning.
