"[My grandfather] came after having fought in World War I because Mussolini has been in power now for three years and had has figured out that Fascism was something that would crush his spirit and his freedom . And we have two parties that are out talking about how they’re going to solve those problems. One wants to talk about raising taxes on people who have been successful and redistributing money, increasing dependency in this country, promoting more Medicaid and food stamps and all sorts of social welfare programs and passing Obamacare to provide even more government subsidies. More and more dependency, more and more government — exactly what my grandfather left in 1925," – Rick Santorum, last night.

Yep: the man who would ban contraception, launch a war of aggression against Iran, constitutionally define gays as second class citizens, and launch a nationalist industrial strategy … sees his opponent as Mussolini.
