"This is how you overthrow the U.S. Government."
I was thinking about this today. The term "Progressive" means a person who is liberal and wants to change the American Political system to socialism or communism without frank, open war, so the "progress" must be done in small steps so the American People don't notice. Progressivism has been very successful in America. Liberal Progressives have worked their way into controlling schools/curricula, Hollywood, and the formerly free press. But since Obama was elected, politics have been anything but progressive. They have become Aggressive. Frank, open war against the Constitution such as government takeovers of the banking and auto industry, the threatened use of reconciliation to enact sweeping government takeover of health care, and odd new rules for enacting legislation such as the Slaughter Rule. Both houses of congress need to vote and pass the same piece of legislation before the President can sign it? Remember School House Rock? Fuggeddaboutit!
I saw this over at Red State today and it sums up this past year nicely:
Update: the reconciliation bill is posted online, complete with a government takeover of the student loan industry, "green schools" and the PUBLIC OPTION. But don't worry. There isn't anything to see here. Move along, move along...
