    Election tally: Glenn Beck won. Progressivism lost.
    By Jonathan Zimmerman Jonathan Zimmerman – Wed Nov 3, 11:08 am ET
    New York – Score one for Glenn Beck. Not just for Mr. Beck’s Republican Party, which captured the House and nearly the Senate in yesterday’s midterm elections. The verdict represents a victory for Beck’s political philosophy, a brand of conservatism that sees progressive values as the No. 1 threat to America. One day, historians might look back on 2010 as the year that Americans sounded the death knell for progressivism itself.

    A government solution for every problemThe term dates to the early 20th century, when social reformers triggered an unprecedented explosion of government activity. To these self-described “Progressives,” America’s filthy cities, factories, farms, and schools cried out for improvement and regulation. They crafted new laws to bring this undirected chaos under intelligent control.

    The moron believes Beck supports the GOP. The GOP are ancillary to Beck's support of moral candidates who want to return this nation to it's constitutional roots and originalist intent, and engage in fiscally conservative policies to maxmize individual freedom.

    The GOP currently doesn't stand for much if any of that except by individual candidate, BUT seem to the recipient of candidates who do believe in this, and ergo are include with those values.

    True but there is much more to be done. The Socialists/Progressives still control the Senate and White House. This battle has only just begun.

    Mr. Shaman, you know your response included a quote that said Colbert/Stewarts rally was "bigger" than Becks? You do know the attendance difference in the rallies, right? Um....right?

    There are no "official" numbers. His estimates are as good as yours, and I'm almost certain he's right - there were more people at Stewart's Rally than Beck's.

    I think Shaman secretly lusts for Beck.
