    Is the Progressive Movement laboring under a misconception?

    Over the last year, I have come to suspect that out leftist friends might not clearly understand certain aspects of the Conservative, Libertarian, and Traditionalist mindset.

    So I thought Id throw the question out to the group.

    My question is basically this: in light of the Health Care scheme, Cap and Trade scheme, Proposed Immigration amnesty, and so forth, does the left think that the Right will simply submit to such an abrogation of Liberty and Reason?

    making poll, hold yer horses
    I think Most of us understand that the "conservatives" of today...bear little resemblance to the conservative idealogy of Goldwater.

    Re: Is the Progressive Movement laboring under a misconception?

    I am on the left, and could care less what the right thinks. I think us on the left should attempt to do what we feel is best, and if the people agree, we will gain/keep power. I also think this is a badly worded poll, since every option is designed to serve your purpose instead of trying to get people's opinions.

    Agreed....this is a badly worded and rather silly poll.

    Re: Is the Progressive Movement laboring under a misconception?

    Which "leftist schemes" are you referring to? Generally the right DOES eventually submit to what the left wants...witness the bizarre spectacle of Senate Republicans rising to the defense of the proletariat by claiming Senate Democrats wanted to cut Medicare benefits. A lot of times it's less overt than that...but most conservatives have also tacitly accepted the idea of social security, progressive taxation, public education, central banking, environmental regulation, etc. (NOTE: Progressives submit to successful conservative policies too.)

    I note that you capitalize "Most." There are treatments for Megalomania now.

    Re: Is the Progressive Movement laboring under a misconception?

    The wording of this poll makes it hard to understand what the OP is looking for. What exactly will the right rebel against or submit to? Because the left already has mostly won as far reproductive choice, government regulation and civil rights are concerned.

    Thank you. I am always gratified when people are willing to confess their glaring cognitive and ethical weaknesses.

    Going by the polls for the current proposed HCR the democrats in charge don't even care about what the people think. They're still going to try and get it passed regardless of what anyone thinks.
