I don't know if any western nation could end up as bad as Nazi Germany these days, tho there certainly are some twisted minds out there doing their damndest.
In the USA (and UK) there are just too many different kinds of people for a really unified tyranny to develop, I think. Germany in the 30s (and Japan) were culturally and racially homogenized nation-states. Back then there was not nearly the kind of open communication between people around the world (no internet).
I don't want to seem like I'm casually dismissing the threat of dictatorial nationalism, but already the Bushies have found out it's not so easy to prevail, thankfully. They are going to face a seriously uphill battle in the elections next month.
