Rhino: I love progressivesSubmitted by rhino on Thu, 02/04/2010 - 21:45
If you haven’t heard Beck lately, he is on a rant about progressives. He basically says that progressives want to slaughter their opponents. He gives no qualifiers such as progressives elected to office, or progressive leaders, or progressives like Mao, he just refers to the collective “progressives”.
The “True” tea party movement and the real grassroots progressive movement are friends and have more political ideology in common than different.
We both want people to succeed.
We both believe that corporations run the government.
We both believe in peace.
We both want to end the FED.
We both believe that some individuals need help and a hand.
We both believe in welfare.
We both believe in a safety net.
Granted, progressives believe that the only way to achieve some of these goals is through government and we believe that the only way to achieve these goals is through the market, but we have the end game in common; Prosperity and happiness for all or almost all.
NEVER FORGET THIS!!!
And don’t ever assume that your average civilian progressive is the same as a progressive that has been elected to federal office.
