Maybe We Really Can’t All Just Get Along

Good article he names them what they are. Get along? that is what Chamberlain said. It didn't work out so well. You can't compromise with communists, fascists, socialists or progressives, you see they have history on their side and are always right, and besides, not only are they smarter, they care more.

It is their definition of compromise that has demonized the House. Because the house do not go in lock step with what the President wanted, the Progressives accused them of not compromising. They actually did their job and each representative voted for the interests of his/her constituents. Compromise means each side giving a little for the greater good, but the President has said in so many words that it's my way or the highway.

"communists, fascists, socialists or progressives,"

You could have stopped after "communists". All the rest are covered as they are simply varying degrees, but communists none the less.

Only a matter of time now until this union of 50 states begins to unravel under it's own fiscal and regulatory weight as did the Soviet Union.

As an American, I have been raised to be hopeful, and so I hang on the election of so many Republican Governors, and people into the legislatures. Those States are doing better. It is part of Obama's lies, when the employment statistics in those Republican States are used by him to his credit. His policies do the opposite, as any small business organization will tell you.
And every Governor that says His or Her State will not go along with this insane Obamacare makes me proud.

the Communists of the USSR called themselves "progressives",the communists of Red China call themselves "progressives",communists of Central and South America call themselves "progressives".Communists worldwide call themselves "progressives".
So,"progressive" DOES equal socialist/communist.
socialism is the first,necessary step to communism.
But people make too much about minor differences in definitions,when essentially and practically speaking,socialism IS communism.

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...
