Progressivism is a failure no matter what outright lies, propaganda and violence they use to advance their failed ideology.
In 2009 Obama called on us to emulate Spain, he explained how Spain had created all of these new "green jobs" and greened their industry and this was the wave of the future.
Four years later Spain has 26% unemployment, 55% among its youth and weekly riots. Spain has no hope of emerging from this depression anytime soon and Spain , Italy, Portugal, Greece, and several others are all in the same progressive inspired economic Titanic.
Progressivism, a classic recipe fro failure and misery.
