+4What lead to the raise of the middle class under capitalism was the growth of the labor movement and the institution of public schools and social security. These were ideas from socialist thinkers. When Reagan gutted the labor movement the decline of the middle class began. During the highest growth period in the US (50s & 60s) we had the most progressive tax structure in history.
-4I don't get it. Are you having trouble finding a job? In a robust economy, people who want to work can, and people who don't want to work don't have to. Statistics like 94 million not in labor force, 56 million women not working, 100% jobs taken by foreigners are meaningless if people who want jobs can find them. More

+6I thought Trump's speech tonight was pretty good. He sounded a bit like Obama and his ideas were very liberal. I hope he can do what he claims he wants to do. Spending $1 Trillion on infrastructure, providing paid family leave, lowering the cost of pharmaceuticals, covering pre-existing conditions, allowing health care across state lines, a federal program for education, these are all very progressive ideals. Make it happen.
+5You do understand we need both: a conservative party that seeks stability and retribution; and progressive party that seeks change and redemption. Without both we condense into autocracy or dissolve into anarchy. Each party takes its turn and leads into the future. Today we seek retribution, tomorrow we seek redemption, and America succeeds only when our citizens are diligent to ensure that each player takes a turn. More
+10Here's a good example of progressive thinking. "Why do we live in a society where one of the icons of family entertainment, the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland can have a segment called "wives for sale" and most non-progressives think that this endorsement of sex-trade slavery is just good fun?" We will never progress until you can see the problem with that. [Can't wait for the conservatives to rip me a new one for this post.]
Chris Squire, the bassist and co-founder of the progressive rock band Yes, passed away yesterday at the age of 67. Do you like progressive rock?
-12Are you progressive in a world that you see is going numb? So, you've been given more thoughts & feelings than some people...who follow every day as if in a structured fog.... More
Globalization = War on Western Civilization?? ***** Democrats want to partner with a whole lot of people to steal your country, your heritage, your traditions, your blessings, and your legacy. Are you gonna wake up? Now the Democrat obsession with abortion makes sense. Kill off Americans as much as possible and import compliant voters. Makes sense doesn't it? In my lifetime, I am going from the new invention of "color TV" to the Muslim destruction of Europe...The cultural Marxists have done a fine job of brainwashing our young people into rejecting and hating their own country. Are you gonna wake up???? They replaced spiritual faith with their fanatical fascist global ideology. Weapons of political correctness, multiculturalism, universal values and globalism failed humanity. To defend America now is to be defending "whiteness" in the eye of the progressive Communists. Speak boldly about the superiority of white western cultures. Ignore the name calling, let it run right off your back. Reject political correctness at every turn. This is a war that must be won. Call out leftist regressives for the totalitarians they are. The empirical facts are in and the diversity hoax as been debunked. We need to educate the masses. They want to come here because we are simply someplace that's full of old money, dumbed down people, believing all things false...... and easy to loot . No other reason for the invasion. Their country has been decimated, ruined, destroyed....Ours is ripe for the picking.! Prey on people's stupidity, lack of the truth, people's compassion disguised as "the right thing to do"...globalism....so they say! Are you really gonna wake up???? Millenials spent 7 years in college for a 2 year degree in Lesbian basket weaving now complaining they can't find jobs. Schools run by carefully controlled agenda see to it that all patriotism, history and self identification as Americans is, "snowflaked" out! PADLOCK LEFTIST UNIVERSITIES!!!!or is it already too late?
