    In the United States, progressivism was not in direct response to theocracy and monarchy. Yes, socialism wasn't in the American consciousness until the late 19th century. Hence why progressivism in the United States was quite aware of the lurking possibilities.

    Now, again, you're wrong. CC is not communist propaganda or indoctrination. Go elsewhere with the tinfoil hat.

    How's that for starters...

    According to common core our Second Amendment reads: “The people have the right to keep and bear arms in a state of militia.”

    Really?

    Of course progressives have absolutely no problem with such ignorance if it pushes their pathetic authoritarian agenda...

    now tell us, exactly how is that second amendment text excerpt guilty of moving our youth in the direction of communism

    Everything you just said is completely wrong....

    Why the hell do you think people came to the "New World"?

    What do you think classical liberalism is?

    What chapter of history did you ignore or just fail?

    Remember the whole part about kings and queens and religious persecution?

    Hell, the Magna Carta was wrote in 1215 - what was the intent of that liberal (progressive) document?

    I'm not going to argue with you anymore on the start of Progressivism, nor will I bother to ask your own level of historical education (I'm pretty sure I do not need to).

    For starters the book didn't even accurately print the Second Amendment as it reads...

    Do I really need to say anything more than that??

    I don't even see how you find that NOT to be a problem (actually I do because you're a progressive and just don't care)....

    LOL....

    What period would you like to discuss??

    You do realize that all "progressive" means is progress???

    Progress from what to what tho???

    If it matters I'm anti-authoritarian and I'm far from an anarchist....

    I don't believe in telling others what to do, but at the same time I don't believe in doing crazy **** just because I can....

    yes, kind of the way debate works
    so, share with us how that second amendment excerpt was in such error and why that is found to be moving our nation's children in the direction of the nazi youth

    I don't even see how you find that NOT to be a problem (actually I do because you're a progressive and just don't care)....
    make me care. explain for me - and any other dubious reader - why your allegation should be found other than laughable

    DD implied that rightwingers aren't educated, so I asked him what his is. The uber-emphasis on education by the left is really misplaced considering it hasn't helped a single Democrat become more than liars.

    Maybe if you paid closer attention, I wouldn't have to convey common knowledge to you.
