    Are Your Politics Hurting Someone?

    View my sig. (the regressive part)

    Progressive, in my eyes, is a misnomer that has been given to the modern liberal movement in order for the elitists who espouse the movement to stroke their own egos into orgasm by claiming that because they think in a way that's different from what's been in the past that they are somehow ahead of everybody else. I enjoy progress. I hate "progressivism," because somehow, the killing off our own population by way of women who see marriage and children as oppressive, while allowing our country to be overrun by barbaric, unproductive, and oppressive cultures and changing the age of infant mortality into the negative numbers (before birth) just doesn't seem like progress to me.
