So when's the last time you were forced to attend an "Obama Nation" rally? How many times have you been required to sign a loyalty oath to Barack Obama?
[quote]-and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, (check, again)
I hate to keep harping about it, but here on planet Earth words actually do have concrete, generally accepted meanings. An "autocrat" exercises absolute authority over all branches of government, which of course makes Obama the worst autocrat in political history.
Mussolini, autocrat. Hitler, autocrat. Every single detail of life in fascist Italy and Germany was controlled by their leader.
Would an autocrat allow Congress to repeal his pet legislation 38 times? Allow Congress to block every piece of legislation he puts forward? How would an autocrat have responded to a congressman yelling "you lie!" during his address to Congress? How would an autocrat respond to countless demands from the public to show his real birth certificate? How would an autocrat handle ethics investigations?
An "autocrat" isn't just somebody who does things you don't like.
[quote]severe economic and social regimentation, (check)
Severe economic AND social regimentation. Oh my, that sounds serious. Nationalization of the gas industry? Farming collectives? National grocery stores? I don't remember any of that being implemented over the last five years.
[quote]and forcible suppression of opposition (check)
Of all opposition? Of whistle-blowers? Of glibertarians? By what means? Stalags? Death camps?
Again, your hysterical oversimplification of the NSA situation is a gross insult to the victims of real fascism.
In a real fascist state, you wouldn't be spam-posting libertarian gibberish all day on an internet forum. You'd be in a labor camp, you'd be dead, or you'd be a refugee.
[quote]Sorry, but the US is now a fascist state.
Sorry, but you're as full of shit as you've always been.
