    They may have been cornered into stating what they really are--Socialists teetering on the brink of communism. We're already hearing them calling themselves " Progressives". Makes you think they are actually heading foreward.

    Can't see how they are moving "forward"...especially looking at his decriptions of liberalism:

    I laugh when he says:
    ...and they think WE are stupid? :D

    LOL actually I do think they respect conservative wisdom because they have to be so surreptitious and use proxies to further their agenda.

    That's a totally unfair stereotype.... I don't believe in UFOs :)

    Actually, stop and think about it. Neo-communism (which is what we usually call "liberalism", but actually is just warmed over communism) bases itself on a lot of flawed assumptions about human nature and the world in general....

    1. Humans are naturally capable of doing good, without laws, without God, without the fear of God.
    2. Society is inherently evil and all problems in the world are the result of class struggle.
    3. People's dignity is expendable
    4. Your worth and reason for existence comes from the State.
    5. The State has the right to take away your property plus any or all of your rights for any reason whatsoever.

    So... if someone tells you that you're not worth anything, you're expendable, you're evil because of what you do or what you are and that you're a greedy so-and-so because you have some money in your pocket (whether you do or don't).... I'm sure that you'll just warm up to him, right? But that is what "liberals" (a.k.a. neo-comms) are implying about the rest of us by their actions, their attitudes etc. No wonder they're losing popularity!

    Well stated as always... Neo-Comms :teeth: I like that!

    The one that stands out the most to me right now is that we are all expendable, and surely human expendability for the purposes of ingraining an agenda has been all over the news lately.
