    What does that mean? Radical Progressives good- Conservatives bad?

    What a neat little world it is.

    So the government ensures our freedoms through the police, military and the courts, while the government is restricted on its powers by the Constitution? If that's the case then I don't know how anyone can gain power apart from favoritism through government action, or inaction.

    It means that once upon a time the Republicans were far more progressive than Democrats were. Radical Republicans wanted to end slavery and change the social dynamic of the South. Democrats did not.

    It's actually less of a neat little world than yours where the bad stuff is all progressive Democrats.

    I think we get that such as a Democratic Republic, founded on our particular Constitution, has as one of its goal the mitigation of too much power in the hands of government. Clearly avoiding the enabling of a tyrannical state was what the Founders had in mind.

    That is also not the nature of "power" discussed in these last few pages. What was pointed out was that the Democrat Party derives political power by keeping a group of citizens poor and less educated, in this case blacks, and therefore more dependent on the type of government liberals espouse. So the votes, and power gained, flow to Democrat politicians. It would also be noted that black America wields considerable "power" by voting as a block. That it has benefited them would be a whole different argument though.

    Which illustrates a huge fallacy of liberal "progressives". Change for the better would be progressive. Change for the worse, regressive.

    Liberals desperately want to relabel themselves as "Progressives". The fact is that they are actually Regressives.

    So you can back that up with historical fact as I did, or just your own rantings?

    Ever notice how when secession comes up, the Liberals here are on the same side as Abraham Lincoln and the Cons are calling him a RINO?

    Sure. Look at Detroit. Look at California. Look at America under Obama.

    Regressives.

    I did not argue that the GOP has always been the far more progressive of the two parties.

    Yes.

    Lets just chalk it up to rich Crackers and be done with it.......
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.
