Here's a definitrion of fascism that includes most aspects of accepted definitions:

"Fascism ( /ˈfæʃɪzəm/) is a radical, authoritarian nationalist political ideology.[1][2] Fascists seek to organize a nation according to corporatist perspectives, values, and systems, including the political system and the economy.[3] They advocate the creation of a totalitarian single-party state that seeks the mass mobilization of a nation and the creation of an ideal "new man" to form a governing elite through indoctrination, physical education, and family policy including eugenics.[4] Fascists believe that a nation requires strong leadership, singular collective identity, and the will and ability to commit violence and wage war in order to keep the nation strong.[5] Fascist governments forbid and suppress opposition to the state."

By this definition, the US is already fascist, and going even further in that direction. The supreme court said corporations are "persons" and that money is the same as speech, and with that gave immoral legitimacy to the takeover of government by corporations. Throw in privatization, no taxes on corps, and there is clearly a corporate takeover. The wars we fight are for corporate profits (oil, water, land) and not "national security," which explains why we went into Libya but not the Ivory Coast, where the humanitarian situation is far worse.

Its government of the corporation, by the corporation and for the corporation.

No disrespect, but if abuse of religion is added (as #1)...I say when ever we say we are a Christian Nation that at the same time has freedom of : religion, speech and association then we are Facism with a capitol "F" (smile)
