"It reminds me of what Sinclair Lewis once said, he says: 'When fascism comes to this country, it will be wrapped in the flag, carrying a cross.'"

Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) argues to Meet the Press' Tim Russert that in the statement above, he is not calling presidential contender and Republican competitor Mike Huckabee a fascist, but what could be the image of a cross planted in a recently released Huckabee campaign ad brought the quote to his mind.

Paul does, however, believe that the United States has adopted fascist leanings. Changes in the country's tone, says the Congressman, such as the PATRIOT Act, questioning dissenters' patriotism during the war, and civil liberties abuses indicate corporatism, or "soft fascism," namely a stronghold by the military-industrial complex on society.
