Here is Salon demagoguery in action, calling the Republicans Fascists and by omission, we're to conclude the Democrats are not Fascist.
Fascism has become a practically useless pejorative, but if it has any meaning left, it is Corporatism. That is, the iron rule of profit, by and for the strongest (richest), and though the rhetoric of the Democrats still calls for respect of humanity, it is lip service doled out as needed for votes. America's two-party charade is effectively a dictatorship of the .01% , and not coincidentally highly Fascist in practice, many many Democrats notwithstanding. Vote for whomever you like, you'll get Corporatism.
