    I don't like the word regressive. It sounds bad.
    The basis for almost any conservative theory is a historical point. Be it political or cultural. The American founders were liberals in their time, because they had new ideas, now liberalism has progressed, so their ideas are conservative. Regressive is the most appropriate word, as progressive is the most appropriate when describing liberal beliefs.

    To American's, it's not terror when some dilapidated house full of middle easterners gets blown away.

    I would imagine that many middle easterners didn't lose much sleep over 9/11 or Boston.

    Terror is terror though. No matter how we justify or decry it.

    I submit that more people on planet Earth are terrified of US troops than rouge Islamic extremists.

    I clicked on Islamic terrorists because I fear them more than I do our own.
    Not following the Geneva Convention would be an indicator of terrorism in the situation that we are in now. Our troops wear uniforms and are readily identifiable. That is just ONE major difference.

    Please, I can think of MANY other more appropriate words to describe liberal beliefs.

    No, I wouldn't call liberals progressive at all. As a matter of fact, they might be the MOST regressive of all ideologies, considering they would like to see the United States run by a huge monarchy. Probably even make Obama the king.

    I'm sure that some are.

    What's the matter? Does the truth hurt? Liberals want to take away or limit and restrict rights, limit and control our sugar intake, control what we eat, how much we exercise, what kind of car we drive, what kind of fuel we use, etc., etc., etc. Sounds like a monarchy to me.

    Oh, I almost forgot, they also want to continually raise taxes on us "peasants" in order to support the monarchy and it's out of control spending habits.

    Anyhow, to get back on topic, I chose Islamic extremists because they are responsible for FAR more killings and casualties than any of the groups currently.

    Not only do you not understand the word regressive, you can't understand what a monarchy is. Or the irony inherent in your claims.

    Oh, I almost forgot, they also want to continually raise taxes on us "peasants" in order to support the monarchy and it's out of control spending habits.
    I'm sure some do.

    I understand both terms perfectly, thanks.

    I'm sure some do.
    That much is obvious.
