For all this horsesh*t I read here all the time about how "progressives" (which I generally take to mean "people I disagree with" when conservatives, be they self-declared or obvious, start yapping) have some hidden agenda, or aren't being truthful about their "leanings." What, exactly, do you think these people want to do? I'm curious, because I've been following this for a long time and if there's some secret Plan X that "progressives" are just waiting to implement, it's been a long goddamn time and I haven't seen what it is yet. Sinking your Battleship?
I generally chalk it up to "I need to label someone a communist, so tag, you're it." It's like the Cold War never ended.
