One cannot be a fiscal conservative without being socially conservative as well. Indeed, the collapse of the traditional social structure is a chief factor in our fiscal demise. For example, the collapse of the black family and many white families as well), post-Great Society, has simply pushed more individuals into the "taker" class. Government can never hope to make up the shortfall when a society collectively shrugs its shoulders and joins the class of those dependent on government. The left has been able to wave the bloody shirt of abortion for years as way of stigmitizing the right as the party that wants to control people's lives, while, hypocritically engineering a whole range of big government programs to do just that.
Every American should read the new book "Shadowbosses." It explains in riveting detail how the Democrat Party has become a wholly-owned subsidiary of the organized labor movement, but particularly the public sector unions. It is the radical left and unions who were behind the OWS movement in an attempt to create a false narrative of the 99% vs. the 1%. The real dichotomy is between those in the private sector who pay taxes and the public sector that feeds off them. By getting behind the OWS movement, the unions are trying to create a false distraction. Government unions at every level: federal, state and local have a vested interest in growing government because, eventually, a larger government with more tax revenues benefits them.

You are one confused dude. Facism and communism are both of the left because they revere the state over the individual. Fascists have a more nationalistic focus, often laced with race consciousness, and communism a more international focus rooted in class consciousness. As Hayek points out, communists and fascists moved easily between these two loyalties sincs they both represented a utopian vision of state power. Conservatives obviously reject both and limited government, with controls on the powers of the state in defense of individual liberty.

You are very confused. I don't where you dredged up your definition, but it certainly was not from an standard lexicon. According to Merriam Webster, fascism is: 1.often capitalized : 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; or 2 a tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial control Operationally speaking, fascism and communism both share a reverence for the state above the individual..

Poll: Obama and Romney Tied in Florida

With each executive order and instance of administrative abuse, Obama is implementing the Cloward-Piven strategy to overwhelm the system and pave the way for the radical transformation of the United States. The EPA's CO2 regulations following the defeat of cap and trade in the Congress and the recent overturning of 1990s welfare reform are just two examples. Obama, the son of Frank Marshall Davis, is a lawless miscreant who should be impeached and convicted of high crimes and misdemeanors.

Great article, Dr. Sowell. In one sense , Obama is a socialist because he wants to socialize more decision-making in Washington. But from an economic perspective, he is is exactly as Dr. Sowell descrtibes him. He wants to leave business in private hands, but regulate it to death. Rather than government owning the means of production, he issues regulations, many of them without Congressional oversight, to control ever larger portions of business operations. And most of it does nothing to advance health or safety, accountability, financial honesty, etc. And another insidious aspect of regulations is that they harm small business disproportionately because, unlike big business, it lacks the financial resources to grapple with them.
South Side of Chicago should crawl back into his South Side hole where he belongs. He's just another taker lined up for Obamabucks. He has nothing of intelligence to offer here.
