Fascism is the union of government with private business against the People.
"To The States, or any one of them, or to any city of The States: Resist much, Obey little; Once unquestioning obedience, at once fully enslaved; Once fully enslaved, no nation, state, city, ever afterward resumes its liberty." from "Caution" by Walt Whitman

"United States Fascism Watch" does not support either of the two State Parties, believing that both of them are corrupt and controlled by Fascists.
However, the Republican Party is literally Fascist [with the Democrat Party as the controlled loyal "liberal" opposition] who have no moral regard for the majority of humanity.
In the following article, you will read how the Republican Party views the concept of "Class War".

2011-09-22 "Warren's 'Class Warfare' Video Goes Viral, GOP Demands Harvard Fire Her; A Video Supporting Taxing the Wealthy Gets Traction on YouTube" by Saul Relative from "Yahoo! Contributor Network"
Elizabeth Warren, the former Obama administration special adviser regarding consumer affairs and finance law, is well known in Massachusetts and the surrounding New England area and among those well versed in activities concerning the middle class. But aside from political wonks, policy advisors, and those familiar with government and finance law, Warren's name may not be all that familiar. With the posting of a video on YouTube scoffing at "class warfare," that seems about to change.
On September 13, Warren announced her candidacy for the Massachusetts U. S. Senate seat currently held by Sen. Scott Brown, who surprisingly took the traditionally Democratic seat long held by Sen. Edward "Ted" Kennedy. On September 18, a video went up on YouTube showing the Harvard law professor speaking at a small gathering about the debt crisis, "class warfare," and fair taxation. The video went viral and Warren seems to be on the verge of singlehandedly eliminating the GOP's basic argument against taxing the wealthy and re-establishing the Bush tax breaks -- that it is a form of class warfare.
And Republicans are wishing they had never heard of her at all.
"I hear all this, you know, 'Well, this is class warfare, this is whatever,'" Warren says in the video, which was shot in August when Warren was exploring the idea of a Senate bid. "No. There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own -- nobody."
Warren, who has been a tireless consumer rights advocate and worked in an advisory capacity on the massive Wall Street reform legislation known as Frank-Dodd, is seen in the video enumerating the trillions of dollars squandered by the Bush administration on tax cuts for the wealthy, wasteful wars, and a revamping of the health care drug program that cost senior citizens more and only seemed to benefit pharmaceutical companies. She then makes it clear that the idea that allowing the Bush tax breaks to expire and calling it "class warfare" is nonsensical in that those who have prospered did so with the help of taxes, workers, protection, and infrastructural programs made possible by the taxes paid by all.
"You built a factory out there - good for you," she goes on. "But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea? God bless. Keep a big hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along."
Warren's message is likely to resonate well in Massachusetts -- as it does with most Americans -- and already seems to be doing so. The law professor has gained a lead in the polls, 46 percent to Brown's 43 percent, according to Public Policy Polling.
But the GOP, who blocked her appointment to the newly created Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in Washington (an appointment now to be filled by Robert Cordray, upon Congressional approval), are not idly standing by and just allowing Warren to take Brown's Senate seat. On Friday, USA Today reported that they entered a little "class warfare" of their own and went after her by attempting to have Warren removed from her current job of teaching as a Harvard law professor [http://content.usatoday.com/communities/onpolitics/post/2011/09/elizabeth-warren-senate-massachusetts-harvard-salary-/1?csp=obinsite].
According to the GOP, Harvard must ask for Warren's resignation because it is a tax-exempt institution, which means it cannot "participate in or intervene in" any campaign for political office. But Warren's staff dismisses the idea of termination, noting that the former elementary school teacher "... takes her responsibilities to her students and the university seriously and she will fulfill her commitments in line with all relevant policies."
Harvard's policy on political activities [http://www.ogc.harvard.edu/documents/PoliticalActivities_GuidelinesforFacultyandStaff.pdf] states that individuals can become involved in politics as long as they do nothing political "within the context of their employment" or with Harvard's "real or apparent authorization."

2011-09-22 "Elizabeth Warren is Right: Class Warfare Tactic a Joke" by K.C. Dermody from "Yahoo! Contributor Network"
Is anyone else getting tired of hearing the Republicans whine about the same old thing? They just don't get it, but there is a strong woman in Massachusetts who is telling them like it is. That woman is Elizabeth Warren, and she is currently running for Ted Kennedy's old Senate seat.
Warren is a former White House financial reform adviser, and though she has never run for political office before, the woman is brilliant politically. While campaigning, she answered the critics of President Obama's plan to slightly increase taxes on the wealthiest Americans.
According to the Huffington Post, Warren remarked [http://www.huffingtonpost.com/chris-weigant/elizabeth-warren-senate_b_974923.html]:
"You built a factory out there? Good for you. But I want to be clear: you moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for; you hired workers the rest of us paid to educate; you were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory, and hire someone to protect against this, because of the work the rest of us did. Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea? God bless. Keep a big hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along."
Most of the GOP would like to see the deficit reduction plan cut into social programs, including education, and the Republicans seem to have no clue that most people in the United States use social programs, whether they are Democrat, Republican, or independent.
Do they not realize our children need to be educated so there are competent adults who can take over the jobs that are needed to run our country in each generation? We need teachers, doctors, nurses, policeman, accountants, electrical engineers, and construction workers. From the jobs that are considered menial to the jobs requiring high-level skills, conservatives need them just as much as the rest of us.
Congressman John Fleming , R.-La., complained about the tax hike early this week. Fleming whines that he can't afford to live on $400,000 after he meets all of his expenses and feeds his family. He is the shining example of how many of the Republicans in office think.
Warren is the strong woman we've needed to explain, simply, that this is wrong. Our country was built by people who work together to make things happen, not by people who live in glass houses.
The other day I saw an elderly man get out of his vehicle and slowly walk with a cane into the store. The van he drove had a bumper sticker that read, "GET RID OF OBAMA AND HIS SOCIALISM" in big bold letters. I sat for a minute as I digested the scene. The man is most likely on Medicare. If there was ever a socialist program, that would be it. I wanted to ask him if he would be OK if his Medicare was canceled, but I just shook my head and drove away.
If I lived in Massachusetts, I would be voting for Elizabeth Warren, and I hope she continues to voice her commonsense opinions and challenge the Republican accusations against our current administration.
