    Yes. That is fair to say, but why the "." after "is"?

    No, of course not. Is it fair to say that if you oppose conservatism and our democratic republic, you are probably a communist? No again. Only the ignorant engage in such nonsense.

    not really.... most of our Founders understood the pitfalls of democracy, which is why they took such great care in forming our republican system with numerous checks and balances.

    and "liberalism" is pretty much a meaningless term without any baseline context... in fact, creating demonizing "us/them" constructs around vague, melodramatic notions is how fascists gain and retain power...

    No.

    You could also be an anarchist, or a monarchist, or a Muslim supporting an Islamic Sharia state.

    No. Democracy is 4 wolves and a sheep voting on what to eat for dinner.

    I support individual liberty, and representative republic governments.

    No.

    You could be many things. A monarchist being the most obvious. Also, many communists reject political democracy.

    And...for the record, Fascist Italy did have democratic institutions. Mussolini was not overthrown...he was VOTED out of office. (Just as he was voted in.)

    Here are some major points of the Fascist Party's platform:

    1) Women given the right to vote

    2) Lower voting age to 18

    3) Proportional representation

    4) decrease work day to 8 hours

    5) establish a minimum wage

    6) give have worker's unions a role in industrial decisions

    7) reduce retirement age to 55

    8) a peaceful but competitive foreign policy

    9) strong progressive tax on capitalists

    10) seizure of religious congregation's possessions

    Not really. There are other sorts of non-democratic government besides fascism.

    Islamic governments, for instance.

    No. Though fascists would reject democracy, the mere rejection of democracy doesn't mean you are necessarily fascist.
