POCKET PARADIGMS

One of the big differences between Hillary Clinton and Rudy Giuliani is that Clinton would invade countries or engage in fascistic policies as a matter of convenience; for Giuliani it would be an act of faith. - Sam Smith

I have to disagree. I don't like Hillary, but I don't think she would go so far as to engage in fascistic policies. Perhaps imperialistic ones, but if you look at the definition of fascism (this term has be sorely abused and misused over the last decade by partisans on both the left and right.

Giuliani, on the other hand, might. He does have a dictatorial bent.

goodness, my comment above was garbled. What I meant to say was:
if you look at the real definition of fascism, which has been sorely abused and misused by partisans of both the left and right, you would have to concede she wouldn't go that far. She's too rational for that. C'mon already.

Ms Clinton has espoused little concern for the mangling of the Constitution, and rarely voted for its protection. Once in a while she votes for civil liberties when the wind is blowing very heavily that way, but it practically takes a gale.

The defining core of fascism is the partnership between government and corporations. Estado corporativo -- The Corporate State -- is Mussolini's alternate name for the system. The heavy hands of punishment and execution internally, and war externally, may very well be encased in a velvet glove, but that does not refute the identification of Ms Clinton as a fascist. Though she is quick to support war and the enforcement-prosecutorial-judicial-penal system.

Let us not forget that she is a Goldwater girl who has continued to move towards the right except for the occasional posturing for vote gathering. She is a strong advocate of overweening legislation for large corporations as long as it is properly bought and paid for.
