According to Websters: "A political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition 2: a tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial control

Sigh. Websters is just about as reliable as Wikipedia, these days (with the one advantage that your paper copy can't be hacked). Fascism is an economic philosophy, not inextricably linked with Nationalism and Racism. The Soviets linked Nationalist political philosophy (emphasis on the "Rodina", or Mother Russia) with Marxist economics. The American Confederacy linked Republican political philosophy with Racist social philosophy.

And - while Obama is certainly not a Nationalist - he certainly is a Racist, and is working quite hard at instituting a Fascist economy.

obama's modus operandi is both to choke the economy and thus shrink it and at the same time provide more people with gov.t support, food stamps etc. it is surprising that with so many more college educated people we have now than ever before their understanding of what is happening they are totally bewildered, maybe because they were educated by socialist-fascist educators who also support obama's distrubutionist philosophy. but when they run out of money and no job prospects maybe they will begin to understand that they were cheated by those very professors of their potential livelihood.

He killed the Keystone XL pipeline. Coal,oil,and nuclear is over 70% of US energy sources.
See a pattern here? there's a concerted effort by Comrade Obama to reduce US energy supplies,which DIRECTLY diminishes the US economy.
Then there's the LOST treaty and it's "redistribution of wealth".
It's all part of his efforts to weaken the US economically,politically,and militarily.
It bothers me a little when conservatives call Barack Obama a "socialist." He certainly is an enemy of the free market, and wants politicians and bureaucrats to make the fundamental decisions about the economy. But that does not mean that he wants government ownership of the means of production, which has long been a standard definition of socialism.

What President Obama has been pushing for, and moving toward, is more insidious: government control of the economy, while leaving ownership in private hands. That way, politicians get to call the shots but, when their bright ideas lead to disaster, they...
