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

Mitt Romney is a fascist who loves freedom so much that he compares the cause for civil-rights and economic justice to be exactly like the tyrannical governments across the world... what??? 
He also loves his country enough to hoard his taxable revenue in another country in order to prevent taxes being collected by the government he is elected to be a part of. 

2012-01-19 "Romney Loses his Cool with Occupier: 'America's Right and You're Wrong'"
Today, Mitt Romney was asked a question about the 99% ouside of his Charleston headquarters. He did not take kindly to the question.
The National Journal reports [http://www.nationaljournal.com/pictures-video/romney-lashes-out-at-occupy-heckler-video-20120119]:
[begin excerpt]
Mitt Romney on Thursday afternoon snipped at a questioner, who seemed to be a supporter of the Occupy Wall Street movement, for waging class warfare, MSNBC reports.
Romney was walking the rope line outside of his headquarters in Charleston, S.C., on Thursday when a person off camera asked, "What would you do to support the 99 percent, seeing as how you're part of the 1 percent?"

Romney responded in anger saying, "If you've got a better model, if you think China's better, or Russia's better, or Cuba's better, or North Korea's better, I'm glad to hear all about it, but you know what, America's right, and you are wrong."
Consequently, the bystander's question was never answered.
Here is a video of the altercation:

Romney has also come under scrutiny today as an ABC report revealed that Romney holds investment funds in the Cayman Islands; the islands are known as a tax haven. Romney, a one-percenter, pays far less in taxes than the average American due to such tactics.
ABC reports [http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/romney-parks-millions-offshore-tax-haven/story?id=15378566#.Txh95krKqHl]:
[begin excerpt]
Although it is not apparent on his financial disclosure form, Mitt Romney has millions of dollars of his personal wealth in investment funds set up in the Cayman Islands, a notorious Caribbean tax haven.
...Mitt Romney is finding it increasingly difficult to maintain a shroud of secrecy around the details about his vast personal wealth, including, as ABC News has discovered, his investment in funds located offshore and his ability to pay a lower tax rate.
"His personal finances are a poster child of what's wrong with the American tax system," said Jack Blum, a Washington lawyer who is an authority on tax enforcement and offshore banking.
On Tuesday, Romney disclosed that he has been paying a far lower percentage in taxes than most Americans, around 15 percent of his annual earnings.
