Liberal, progressive, marxist, socialist, leftist, statist --- all are a child of COMMUNISM, folks. Today's commie prefers to be called a "progressive" and so what do quislings and collaborators on the Right do? They do as they are dam well told! Rarely do you hear of the commies being referred to as the commies that they are.
If Rightsiders are afraid to even call them "communists" it is no flippin wonder why they refuse to actually fight back, make war on the Left same as the Left makes war on the Right 24/7.
Rarely is there the Conservative who thinks out of the box. Always it is the same old tired and tragic (not tried and true) failed methods.
