Fascism 101: Authoritarian Nationalism and a One Party State. You be the Judge.

Fascism, according to Wikipedia, is a political ideology that seeks to combine radical and authoritarian nationalism with a corporatist economic system, and which is usually considered to be on the far right of the traditional left-right political spectrum.

Fascists believe that nations ... are in perpetual conflict whereby only the strong can survive ... by asserting themselves in conflict against the weak.

Fascists advocate the creation of a single-party state. Fascist governments forbid and suppress openness and opposition to the government and the fascist movement.

A Dictatorship is a government controlled by one person or a small group of people .... an autocratic form of absolute rule by leadership unrestricted by law, constitutions, or other social and political factors within the state.

Now you tell me what the difference is between the Harper government and Fascism or a dictatorship. You can't, because there is virtually no difference. Government money is now His money. The media is now His media, and the Canadian taxpayers are nothing more than the ignorant masses he must control. We were sleeping, but should now have a rude awakening, though I'm not going to hold my breath.

Conservative candidates
, critics charge.
While Conservative allies and would-be MPs are welcome at public announcements to splash taxpayers' money around Canada, opposition MPs say they've been pushed to the sidelines and even left in the dark about funding announcements taking place in their ridings.

Some New Democrat and Liberal MPs say they have only learned about funds going to their ridings when they looked in the local paper after the fact and saw unelected Conservative candidates prominently featured at government-financed events. Liberals believe that if Elections Canada looks into the practice, Conservatives could be held in violation of strict laws intended to keep partisan and government spending separate ....
