    I stole this one.

    As some of us well know, there are many types of "progressives" in the world today. Some are really liberals in the purest sense, which is fine with me. Others are a varying mix of liberalism, libertarianism, and conservativism [sic]. To say that one is "progressive" does not always mean that they are liberal.

    there are others like me where I once lived

    "Progressive" is what the Socialists called themselves in the 1930's to disguise their real intent.

    and just cause it pees in Dante's pool :booze:

    Liberalism = Socialism = Marxism = Communism = Progressivism = Fascism

    They all desire to create a state run totalitarian collectivist 'utopia' powered by revenge, envy, hate and hypocrisy.

    Wow. Kudos to you, most people would be ashamed to show off such massive ignorance in a subject.

    Really. I didn't think covering your ears and shouting 'LALALALALALALA' and calling people... what was it? Progcommieliberalsocialists constituted as 'not being proven wrong.'

    Edit: oh I apologize it was 'progcommiefascorporatism.' How silly of me.

    I'd say you were catching on, but I'm not quite sure what you were saying because my sarcas-o-meter alarm was ringing so loud.

    You still have not presented any evidence that refutes they all want the same thing, making them similar flavors of the same philosophy. Chocolate, vanilla, strawberry.... it's all still frogurt and tastes like crap.

    All the progressives I've dealt with want the United States to "progress" to the condition of the USSR circa 1958.

    I'll pass, thanks.
