So does that mean you are Progressive?

 

 

 


No, that means I'm a citizen of the U.S.A. with a vote like the majority of Americans who will send the Republican Party packing in the near future.

Good attempt at diverting the topic.

My family had decided they had enough tyranny for at least 13 life times.  I am grateful for their courage and tenacity. 

 

 


A ninth generation American, including Cherokee through one side, plus seven documented patriots, several more suspected, who served in the War for Independence.  My ancestors crossed the Appalachians, and left us wih  the pioneer spirit as a legacy of indepedent thought.

 

They would have been completely against this creeping socialism being advocated plus the attempts at social engineering.

I would approve of none of these!

 

What American, knowing what our ancestors went throught to give us the Constitution and the Bill of Rights could want any of this?

 

It appeared President Obama wanted to “Fundamentally Transform America” in that direction for his 8 years in office.  That is exactly why I voted for President Trumps agenda!  It will move us as a country back in the direction of our roots.

 

IMO of course... From a 13 th generation American of Scottish and Irish decent.

 

My family had decided they had enough tyranny for at least 13 life times.  I am grateful for their courage and tenacity. 

 

Good luck with this one @rk9152 as I am sure the Progressive floodgates are about to open.  For the life of me I will never understand the Progressive mindset.  My Dad referred to them as the FSA.  You figure it out... First word is Free.

10 Planks

Message 138 of 138

When confronted with the term "neoMarxism" our posters of a leftward persuasion refuse to discuss it. Instead they respond with either silence or insults. I am sure in some cases it is pure ignorance and an ability to think only on an emotional level. But I am also sure that there are some with sufficient intelligence to see the truth but are (using their less alert Comrades as support) attempt to avoid admitting to the truth.

 

Here are the 10 planks. Consider how many you approve of and how many are within the agenda of the Progressive Movement:

  • Abolition of Property in Land and Application of all Rents of Land to Public Purpose.

  • A Heavy Progressive or Graduated Income Tax.

  • Abolition of All Rights of Inheritance.

  • Confiscation of the Property of All Emigrants and Rebels.

  • Centralization of Credit in the Hands of the State, by Means of a National Bank with State Capital and an Exclusive Monopoly.

  • Centralization of the Means of Communication and Transport in the Hands of the State.

  • Extension of Factories and Instruments of Production Owned by the State, the Bringing Into Cultivation of Waste Lands, and the Improvement of the Soil Generally in Accordance with a Common Plan.

  • Equal Liability of All to Labor. Establishment of Industrial Armies, Especially for Agriculture.

  • Combination of Agriculture with Manufacturing Industries; Gradual Abolition of the Distinction Between Town and Country by a More Equable Distribution of the Population over the Country.

  • Free Education for All Children in Public Schools. Abolition of Children's Factory Labor in it's Present Form. Combination of Education with Industrial Production.

In reading the above, remember, it was written in the mid-1800s in a heavily agricultural economy - interpretations are needed to see it in the context of today's America. As an example, "industrial armies" could be seen as "politically active unions"
