I notice on these threads how many times I see the word 'fascism' used by our liberal brothers and sisters. They seem to enjoy using the word, so incorrectly, when referring to republicans and conservatives. I assume, that by it's misuse, it isn't very well understood. Possibly it's a word that's on their 'list of slur words', to be flung about when all else fails. When the government controls health care, the biggest auto companies in the country, education, energy production, religion and the housing market; either directly or through an agency such as the EPA that uses edict, regulation and mandates as a control mechanism. When the government is in collusion with labor unions...that, my liberal friends, is fascism. The left calls the right fascist because it sees the right as perpetrators of classic fascist philosophies. Yet, it's the left that strives for increased government control of almost every facet of society. How we educate, what we eat, what we earn, what our businesses can and can't do. The right prefers that we educate on a local level, Eat what we want, pay for our own health care, use our own resources, worship however we see fit, allow failed companies to fail and successful companies to continue being successful, end the undo control of the EPA and like government agencies, keep what we earn and quit supporting a 'super sized government'. So liberals, before you start with your inevitable epitaphs, give some thought as to who the fascists really are.
