    The more I think about it the more I realize that the progressive left hates freedom more than anything. I can't think of anything they have ever done that promotes freedom in any way but I can point out what they do for power and power over others. Most conservatives are pretty content with leading their lives the way they want to without being bothered by the forced collective thinking of the left. Its sad that a country born with a new idea in this world is slowly reverting back to the old world way of thinking.

    In the words of Mike Tyson, I doubt it seriously.

    Yeah ok..

    Forward as in? More Government intervention? Useless Social Programs that do more harm than good? Higher taxes? More Regulations? :eusa_eh:

    Sounds like we're heading in the wrong direction..

    True enough. They're content as long as everyone else leads the same kind of life they're leading. :eusa_whistle:

    Really? What freedoms have you lost due to positions from the "progressive left"?

    Are you not the same person, who started a thread about land owners being the only ones who could vote?
