    academics, historians who do study
    fascism professionally, have only spoken out recently

    they seem to have a checklist of some sort
    and said that until recently, the U.S. was not
    far enough along the road to fascism to worry

    now they say we should worry
    and the question is
    what kind of fascism will we be getting?

    the corporate kind (like Mussolini) or
    the brownshirt kind (like Hitler)

    when Romney got the nomination instead of Gingrich, I took that to mean we will be getting Mussolini's variety

    I think that means the good news is that your leaders won't actively harness the fury of those talk-radio hate boogers against us - they will just do nothing, but nothing, to protect us from them (the folks at Planned Parenthood have decades of experience dealing with this one, so they can help with advice)

    instead, we will get the corporate fascist harm they intend for us after the election - Simpson-Bowles

    roll over Beethoven indeed, Mussolini is rocking our world now y'all

    It is the highest impertinence ... in kings and ministers, to pretend to watch over the economy of private people, ... They are themselves always, and without any exception, the greatest spendthrifts in the society. - Adam Smith
