Obama isn't fascist by an stretch of the imagination. What has he done that is fascist? I do not think that word means what you think it means.
A political regime, usually totalitarian, ideologically based on centralized government, government control of business, repression of criticism or
opposition, a leader cult and exalting the state and/or religion above individual rights.
Hhmm...leader cult. Obama is the Messiah. Check.
Centralized government. The dream of liberals and the current proposal of Obama. Check.
Government control of business. Holy crap almighty...now more than ever! Check.
Repression of criticism or opposition. Obama carefully controls press conferences and disdains criticism. Check.
Hhhhmm...could we have the beginnings of full-blow totalitarian fascism in this administration? You can bet on it.
