    Great crowd, no politics, and wonderful setting. Restoring Honor was the theme and was non partisan in nature.
    Then why is this thread titled: Glenn Beck rally will be a measure of the tea party's strength

    Or does that irony sweep right past you?

    And of course itís a happy coincidence that the midterms are only a couple of months off.

    And with this sentence ("Unlike the Communist Party, the Socialist Party...") following the previous one, the author is telling you that the Communist Party wasn't a part of the Progressive Movement. That sentence further goes on to point out that American Socialists (of the time, keep in mind this was oh, 100 years ago or so) weren't beholden to international parties and were adapting it to suit American needs.

    So, can you honestly say that this proves your point that Progressives are all fascists, socialists, or communists - when it clearly doesn't say that at all? Further, how does it prove your false assertion that Progressives are fascists, when fascism doesn't come up at all?

    You've proven nothing, except that you're given to generalizations about people you don't understand.
    What is the difference between a liberal and a progressive and why are liberals now calling themselves progressive?

    # the conviction that government must play a role to solve social problems and establish fairness in economic matters.
    That has socialist/communist philosophy written all over it. Don't the socialists/communists support the government salving social problems and redistributing wealth?

    No, actually it does not. That is simply spin.

    Come on aspdt, prove your wild assed claim. You have not even remotely begun to. Hell, your source more proved you wrong than right.

    Progressives supported eugenics. Now, let's see, who else proposed eugenics to cleanse the human race? Was it the Nazis? I think it was, huh? What you're talking about is called, "revisionist history".

    What does this rally have to do with the Midterm's, it was non political. This election will be on results, not a "restore honor" rally. The results do not favor the Democrat Party and a change in Congress is exactly what Obama needs. He doesn't know how to lead therefore won't have to get out of campaign mode and can then demonize Republicans. He is trying that already by calling Republicans the Party of "no" when it is his agenda that has been enacted and generated the results we see today, 15.8 million unemployed Americans, 3 trillion added to the debt and 1.6% economic growth.

    By the way did you find that Clinton paydown of the debt you have been looking for?

    So, I'm wrong, simply because Redress says so? She has her mod status and can call other posters ignorant and liars and she's right by default. Got it.

    Just because you all belive the same false info, doesn't make you right.

    So ****ing worthless. You can't prove ****, so stop trying. I'll give you this, through your complete inability to prove your worhtless generalizations about people, you've at least proven this to me. I said you were either lying or ill-informed.

    At least now I know it's because you're ill-informed.
