    This is a bit over the top. Progressivism equals communism and mass murdering? Getting something for nothing from the government? No. He's got the main points of conservatism right I would say, but everything else is a bit silly.

    I like it. Simple and accessible communication of core values.

    Well, it certainly does show the standard Tea Party Line if that's what you're asking. I'm sure Tea Partiers not only believe but approve of the infomercial style of exaggeration and misinformation.

    This guy make some really good points. But how about the ideas of Anarchism, Socialism & Libertarianism, with more detail. They also made equally good points as the tea party people.



    (I posted a thread for this video before here http://www.debatepolitics.com/genera...ves-peace.html)
    You can refine anything in it's pure form to use for good or evil. This goes for everything, not just materials.

    Then we are talking about different versions. Progressivism tends to favor greater government intervention in daily life, which leads to socialism, which, according to Marx, is only a step towards communism.

    I think this video nails the philosophical underpinnings of conservatism.
