What Is a Progressive? | Health Policy Blog | NCPA.org

When is the last time you heard a liberal describe himself as a “liberal”? It’s probably been a long time. These days, those on the left are more likely to call

excerpt: "The progressives saw the state as properly involved in almost every aspect of social life. Herbert Croly envisioned a government that would even regulate who could marry and procreate. In this respect, he reflected the almost universal belief of progressives in eugenics. These days, there is a tendency to think that interest in racial purity began and ended in Hitler’s Germany. In fact, virtually all intellectuals on the left in the early 20th century believed in state involvement in promoting a better gene pool. These included H.G. Wells, George Bernard Shaw, Sidney and Beatrice Webb (founders of Fabian Socialism), Harold Laski (the most respected British political scientist of the 20th century) and John Maynard Keynes (the most famous economist of the 20th century). Pro-eugenics articles routinely appeared in the left-wing New Statesman, the Manchester Guardian and in the United States in the New Republic. – See more at: http://healthblog.ncpa.org/what-is-a-progressive/#sthash.dgvEYPjD.dpuf

US Debt.  For the most part, our Congress has ignored the clear and present danger that the ramifications of our National Debt . Politicians are afraid to make hard choices .. reduce deficit spending SUBSTANTIALLY.. for fear they will not be re-elected.  Government has been sold to the current crop of low information voters as a kind of limitless source of goodies.  Most people understand what "deficit spending" does to a household budget, but forget all about consequences of massive debt when it’s "shared debt".   

 

This ignorance is calculated… a product of the dominant  "liberal" nonsense passed off as "education" in today’s America.

DEAR EUROPE & AMERICA: Those ‘Poor Refugees’ Sure Look And Act Like Radical Muslims To Me ⋆ Doug Giles ⋆ #ClashDaily

A couple of weeks ago I got a flurry of appeal letters from ministries asking me to financially help them help the “refugees” fleeing the crap-hole called Syria.

Such cowardice emanating from these "leaders" is appalling.

Former UN General Assembly Boss Arrested for Corruption

He also solicited and received bribes while serving as the UN ambassador from Antigua and as chief of the UN General Assembly — an autocrat-dominated outfit that globalists and dictatorships around the world hope to empower as a sort of veto-proof legislature ruling over all of humanity, or an “emblem of global sovereignty,” as a coalition of more than 130 regimes recently put it while calling for a “New World Order.” Ashe served as UN General Assembly president until last year.

The U.N. is a deeply corrupted network that thrives on kickbacks, bribes, and is shielded by the abuse of "diplomatic immunity".. which essentially is treated as a free pass for high crimes of all types.
