33. I had a more detailed post, but it got erased
and I'm not writing the whole damned thing again.

But, basically, the Bush administration are fascists. They have fascist social policies as a result of the Lee Atwater strategy that they use to steal money from people.

The difference between Trump and Eisner and your historical fascists is that Trump and Eisner are businessmen, not politicians. When corporatism injects itself into politics, what you get is fascism.
