Just as the homosexual community has co-opted the word “gay,” various leftists, socialists and Marxists have co-opted the word “progressive.” Words mean things. If you read the definition of “progressive,” conservatives and the Tea Party are the real progressive force in America, as we are the ones advocating substantive upgrade, improvement and reforms in the stinky, status-quo swamps of Washington.
The leftists and all of their various incarnations have co-opted the word “progressive” to try to convince Americans they are agents of political improvements when exactly the opposite is true. Leftists are agents of not only the status quo, but a truly backward mindset. They are the ones who advocatethe proven horrors of bigger government, more dangerous borrowing, more irresponsible spending, less accountability, more cronyism, more dependency and foggier transparency.
