I think the difference between Wilson's (authoritarian) Progressives and Obama's (authoritarian) Progressives is that Wilson's were more national socialists, whereas Obama's are more international socialists (the direction FDR took the Progressive movement). I think that differs from the Republican Party who are dominated by Social Conservatives (national authoritarians) and Neo-Conservatives (imperialist authoritarians). It seems that only (authoritative) Liberty Republicans and true Libertarians understand and work to restore our Federal Republic as envisioned by the Founders.

National Socialists are Rightists. Anti-National Socialists are Leftists. The fundamental difference is that Leftists' goal is to destroy normal human society (religion, race, language, culture) because Leftists can't succeed in it. Rightists fight the Leftist attempt to wipe out their society. To completely destroy every vestige of normal human life, one must control absolutely every aspect of individual activity. That's why Leftists, and only Leftists, are totalitarians. The difference between Hitler and Lenin is simple -- Hitler was rabidly pro-German. Lenin proceeded imediately to wipe out every trace of Russian culture, religion, and social hierarchy. And every Leftist since has done the same, as far as they have power to do so. What

do you think the ACLU is, to cite the most familiar example of an anti-Christian, anti-American legal foundation. Multiply the ACLU by hundreds of similar front-groups (another Leftist speciality) and you have the organized attack on American society. O'bwana wasn't kidding when he promised to radically transform America. The obvious question would be: if you love/accept/tolerate America as it is, then why would you want to transform it into something else? Obviously, no one would. As the Left used to rationalize their destructive regimes by saying 'you can't make an omelette without breaking eggs'. Well, some have noticed hundreds of millions of 'broken eggs' but there isn't any omelette. There isn't intended to be. The goal is...

to break all the eggs! Nutshell: Rightists are authoritarians; Leftists are totalitarians. Rightists are greedy; Leftists are envious. Rightists love their Nations; Leftists hate the idea of Nation. Rightists abolish politics; Leftists politicize everything. A Rightist dictator may buy himself a fleet of Mercedes, but a Leftist dictator won't rest until he has your car (Al Gore?).

During the Los Angeles riots of 1992, Rodney King famously asked, “Can’t we all just get along?” The answer should be an easy and unequivocal “yes,” but it seems less and less likely these days.

King was speaking in term of race, but the same could be said of political ideology. Liberals, conservatives and every other point on the political spectrum used to co-exist fairly easily (with the exception of left-wing anarchists who don’t get along with anyone). But these days détente has given way to anger and open hostility.

Some, not all, people have become less civil to those...
