Wal-mart has recently entered into the feilds of politics contributing 1.25 million to several congressional canidates and the re-election of Bush in the upcoming 2004 election. Wal-mart shelled out 84% of donations made to the republicain party makeing it there largest contributer. Jay Allen the treasurer of the the political department for wal-mart has declined an interview. Wal-mart is the favored target of democrats saying that they are aiming at lower the pay scale.

Either you misinterpreted the article or the author of the article is confused. There is no possible way that 84% of the money in the Republican Party's campaign chest came from Wal-Mart, especially considering that Wal-Mart's total contribution was a mere 1.25 million. The Republican Party has way more than a million and a half in campaign funds.

Perhaps 84% of the 1.25 million Wal-Mart contributed to political campaigns went to support Republican candidates.

By the way, how does contributing to the Republican Party qualify as a Fascist action?
