Cheney administration disciples quoted

Jon Stewart jokingly cited this Goering quote as a Bush administration inspiration:

"'Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger.'"
Hat tip to Snopes for the exact quote.

Another famous fascist quote that fits Bush to a T comes from Stalin:
"Those who cast the vote decide nothing. Those who count the vote decide everything."
When will this fascist nightmare end?
