    In the 1980's, the twentieth century's greatest president, Ronald Reagan, frequently spoke about the dead hand of liberalism and the deleterious effects it had on our society, our economy and our country.

    He drove the Democrats nuts.

    Eventually, George Soros (the current benefactor of Barack Obama) and his friends ran a full-page ad in the New York Times imploring President Reagan to stop using the term 'liberal' as a pejorative.

    Reagan responded by looking directly into the next camera he could find and saying: "Liberal! Liberal! Liberal!".

    The crowd roared its approval.

    After having endured stagflation, high unemployment and interest rates, long lines for gasoline, low stock prices, and humiliation abroad, all of which resulted from years of Jimmy Carter's fecklessness and incompetence, Americans had had enough of liberals and their 'hate America' philosophy.

    Eventually, liberals could no longer tolerate the stigma, went into the closet and emerged as 'Secular Progressives'.

    The term 'secular' is particularly apt since, in the context of their philosophy and life-style, it means 'Godless'.

    There is nothing progressive, however, about a liberal.

    Regardless of the term they apply to themselves, liberals or secular progressives are Marxist, socialist throwbacks to the failed and discredited philosophies, ideologies and policies of their brethren in the Soviet Union, Communist China, North Korea and Cuba.

    The failed economies and ruthless oppression of the aforementioned countries are testaments to the failure of Marxism and socialism.

    Socialism is defined as an economic and political theory advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods, and a system of society in which there is no private property.

    I disagree. They are "progressively" destroying everything good about our country.
    Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.

    Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:

    I have heard the new "preferred term".... which does nothing but beg the question: Progressing towards what? Nothing positive, that much is certain. (At least for the productive amongst the citizenry.)
