When I use the term, I use is to mean the early 20th century progressives who believed that men could rise above human nature and use the power of a massive central state to bring about changes that would cure all the ills of society. That thinking still exists, primarily in the Democrat party, but it is alive and well in the Republican party too. They are early 20th century Progressives.who no longer champion small limited government and individual achievement and prosperity.

Karl Rove Vs. the 'Far Right'

Karl Rove is a conservative, IF you define "conservative" as "preserving the status quo." It is a strange irony that true conservatives are the new radicals,m cultural insurgents challenging the leftists slant of the prevailing culture. Conservatives must cut tires with Rove and his type, Republicans who only care about winning and not about that they might do when they win. Theirs is a constant contest of political calculation and getting and keeping power. But if they govern not a whit differently than liberals, what have they won? We must be honest and ask ourselves: in 8 years of Bush, did the government grow, or shrink? Did the debt increase, or decrease? Did government overreach expand, or contract?
So they are finally flat out saying pregnancy=terminal illness. Got it.
Please go crack a history book. It was Republicans who freed the slaves over the objection of Democrats. It was Republicans who provided the necessary votes to pass the Civil Rights Act., over the objection of southern Democrats. Southern democrats fought tooth and nail to keep blacks "in their place."
Hey, while were at it, let's get rid of dangerous addictive drugs too. Maybe ban them. That should work, right?

The video showing the police removing the rifle from the trunk clearly shows them clearing the weapon of ammo. It clearly ejected a shotgun shell.
Ed Shultz wouldn't know which end of the weapon the round comes out of.
Liberalism: the bankrupt philosophy that the masses who do nothing are to be rewarded with the fruits of the labor of the few, and the masses are to be punished for the crimes of the few.
Of course, Schultz is right, though completely by accident. Though there are a bazillion gun control laws in Chicago, they may as well not exist. Any kid past third grade knows that laws and rules only point out what a majority deem acceptable behavior or conduct. They produce neither conformity to them nor the desire to do so. Government could pass laws every day from now until the end of creation and not make a whit of difference in lessening the impact of the rot and poison of the putrid cultural stew they have been cooking for the past 60 years. Laws are passed with the assumption that society is lawful and will obey them. If they have not learned by now that criminals are by definition not obedient to laws, they never will.
