    I believe in smaller Federal government with stronger local governments.

    I believe that tax dollars should not be used to fund welfare for the rich nor poor. Tax dollars should be used to fulfill US Constitutional mandates.

    I do not think the government should claim part of a person's income. This practice makes citizens little more than serfs.
    Thank you for asking. I was interested in seeing why some people in this forum say that I am Fascist.

    Ironically those are the two criteria that make you a fascist.

    You win a cookie.

    Conversely, those who want intrusive all controlling government and higher taxes with more regulations and an end to a free economy are liberal freedom lovers

    The fact that you hold "beliefs" makes you a Fascist!

    What makes people liberal these days is "I'm not winning the game, so let's change the rules"...The game will now be called "I win"!

    You aren't.

    Being a misogynist, racist bigot doesn't make you a Fascist.

    You aren't smart enough to be a Fascist.

    You don't seem to be a fascist to me. A lot of horrible things, if your posts are to be believed, but not a fascist.

    On the economic scale of things I'd say you're pretty much an Ayn Rand sort of a laissez faire capitalist (as in the Chicago boys style of economics).

    Morally I'd call you conservative: considering the 50's and 60's a golden age. Which qua music I would generally agree with, but with human rights, woman's rights, etc. reminds me of the dark ages.

    On international affairs I'd call you ill informed, naieve and simplistic.
    I presume you get your international news and summaries from conservative US sources.

    But I don't see fascist.

    What about Eladar's apparently approving of the genocide of Muslims?

    I note that Fascists don't necessarily approve of genocide.
    So it seems to me that Eladar may be worse than a Fascist.

    The more interesting question is why do you think that others think you are a fascist?

    I didn't have my reading glasses on when I first saw the OP, and I thought, how brave, someone confident and secure enough in their belief system to spell out exactly why they think fascism is a great thing.

    Well, although most fascist regimes do tend to favour genocides and ethnic cleansing, genocide itself has been perpetrated by many sorts of regimes.

    The Israeli cleansing if Palestine.
    The US cleansing of Indians.
    Ruwanda.
    Etc.

    So, just because he hopes for a genocide (which is probably a form if artistic exaggeration), doesn't make him a fascist.

    My two cents anyways.

    Genocide is not the just the prerogative of Fascists.
    Any a$$hols can do it.

    From the Wikipedia article on Fascism ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fascism ):
    "Fascists believe that liberal democracy is obsolete, and they regard the complete mobilization of society under a totalitarian one-party state as necessary to prepare a nation for armed conflict and to respond effectively to economic difficulties. Such a state is led by a strong leader—such as a dictator and a martial government composed of the members of the governing fascist party—to forge national unity and maintain a stable and orderly society. Fascism rejects assertions that violence is automatically negative in nature, and views political violence, war, and imperialism as means that can achieve national rejuvenation. Fascists advocate a mixed economy, with the principal goal of achieving autarky through protectionist and interventionist economic policies."

    Sounds strangely familiar.
    Which ideas here don't you believe in?
