    A gargantuan bankrupt welfare/warfare police state is not what the Founders meant by a Republic.

    Fascism is unrelated to Socialism. In fact Fascism rose to prominence during times of economic distress brought on by the failures of Capitalism. The Fascists violently suppressed growing Socialist and Communist movements while turning people's attention to ideas of Nationalism, the overriding characteristic of Fascism and the reason it is deemed to be in the right sphere of politics. You play loosely with the terms in order to mold them to fit your ideology thereby rendering them to be meaningless rhetoric.
