It is interesting to me how the Democrats have managed to change the definition of fascism. They don't like the fact that FDR was a fascist (but, didn't want the media to report that, so they didn't) so they fuzz up the issue by claiming that Republicans are fascists, Bush is worse than Hitler, etc. So, I was encouraged when I read a comment to a blog by someone who understands that Democrats are fascists.

Technically we should classify the model that Obama and most other social-democrats follows as a fascist one. In the fascist model, the means of production nominally remain private hands but the government has the right to intervene in any economic matter of its choosing in any way of its choosing. In addition, the fascist model posits an extensive welfare stare, politically managed health care, state pensions and guaranteed jobs.

Of course, fascism has perjorative connotations so people shy away from making the obvious comparisons. One doesn’t have to be a militarist or xenophobe to be a fascist. One must merely seek power and economic control over the populace. When you start with motive, the fascist model comes into being naturally.
