    cult of personality - not state - which puts it closer to communism or Nazism than to true fascism.

    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    An idea straight from the minds of hitler and moussilini.
    It is only upon careful observation, with a magnifying glass, on a sunny day, that one comes to realize how often ants burst into flames.

    Take a look around. Patriotism doesn't necessarily mean militarism. The obama supporters are being patriotic in the extreme if the support of the fasscist regime is the goal.

    We are past the verge and the ball is rolling. I am not a "sky is falling" type but I am worried. History shows us that once a ball of this type starts rolling with the support of the mob, it is nearly impossible to halt.

    Are you also going to argue that obama doesn't have the support of the mob?

    No - he has the mob - but I argue that the mob is not patriotic. They are infatuated with a cult of personality rather than a cult of state. A cult of state is a requirement for true fascism.

    He's trying to create a mandatory "service" requirement for young people. Do you seriously think that program (and the public school system) won't be beating the drum for "patriotic" involuntary servitude on behalf of the State?

    This is what fascism looks like in the 21st century. :(

    Which brings me back full circle:p - they are verging on it. It will take an infusion of patriotism to fully qualify . . . . .

    Exactly the same coud be said for the beginnings of the rise of the nazis or uncle joe's regime, or benito's, or take your pick.

    Picking nits in search of an exact match to any political philosophy is just so much mental masturbation. Look at the differences between the rise of the soviet style socialism and the rise of the chinese variety. Different approaches but very similar results. Ask the people who lived under the soviet and those who lived (or died) under mao how much difference the actual rise of their respected governments made once the ball started rolling.

    Benito and Adolph both appealed to the superiority of the race/state. Barry has some catch up work in that department if he is actually going to fall into fascism.

    and yet both exhibited the classic characteristics of communism. Barry's verging on fascism but without patriotism - he's just playing the part of a potential petty dictator. He's more Robert Mugabe than Benito Mussolini or Josť Antonio Primo de Rivera.
