    Glenn Beck is right about the fact that the progressive movement of the 20th century has infected both sides of the political spectrum. Its the reason why RINO republicans and blue dog democrats. RINOs instantly agree with anything that the far left says while blue dogs instantly agree with most of what republicans say. Its like the progressive in both parties instantly agree with each other while the non-progressives in both parties see eye to eye on most issues.

    The question is: Does left and right or democrat or republican matter that much anymore?

    I had a discussion a few days ago about liberal progressives and conservative progressives.

    There was one person who insisted liberal progressives are good, while conservative progressives do not exist.

    I think progressives hide behind party labels, on both sides.

    For once, I agree with something TM says. I also think that Independent will continue to move toward conservatives.

    I agree for one good reason. Liberalism, althoiugh has "good for the people" at its core, has proven to be impossible to acheive without the sacrficie of liberties.

    Conservatism, which has "personal responsibilty" at its core, has proven to grow this great nation to become the strongest most prosperous and most generous nation in the world in a mere 300 years.

    I agree with both avatar and truth.
    Independents will gain numbers, and most will be on the conservative side.

    Personally, I would be thrilled to see both parties collapse, then I wake up from my sweet dream and they are all still there with their hands in my pockets.

    Nope you are very wrong.

    They will be filled with everyone who is becoming disapointed with the dems not doing what they were elected to do.

    They have a majority and refuse to use it to get things done.

    They are convincing me and other dems that they are as bought as the republicans are.
