Don't get carried away, Jack, or make unwarranted projections. That's a major logical fallacy you're using to tar the Tea Party. Pigs and humans are both mammals; that doesn't mean humans are pigs.

I hate cigarette smoking the same as Hitler did--that doesn't make me a Nazi. Likewise, saying that the fascists and the Obama administration (and other governments in history) had corporatist economic policies is not equating the Obama administration with fascism. When people think of the evil that the fascist governments of Germany and Italy committed, it's not their economic policies they're talking about.

It's just a matter of historical economic history that the fascists used corporatism, which is a collectivity economic policy. Czarist Russia also used it to some extent.
