The Takeover of America.

Does this sound accurate to you? This is long and will take up posts.
When “communist” became a contemptuous term, it was intentionally changed to something more pleasant sounding - “Progressive” (in the 1920s). So, when you hear Hillary and Barry speak to the “Progressives”, many people are unaware of what that actually means.
When, during the primaries, Hillary said that she likes to think of herself as a “Progressive like the 1920s Progressives”, maybe she felt that she could say it out loud because of the basic ignorance of the citizens knowing what that actually means. Patriotic Democrats and/or Republicans who believe in our representative form of government are NOT “Progressives”.

  • You are exactly right. People need to get their heads out of their own butts and start paying attention to what's really going on. But they are so blinded by their hate for Bush and their unconditional love for Obama that they can't see the truth. "The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism, but under the name of liberalism they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program until one day America will be a socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened."

  • Look up Cloward & Piven. There was a photo of them in the White House with Bill Clinton. They were a husband & wife team who devised a plan to collapse the very system of the USA so it could be replaced with “Socialism” (another word for marxist-lite aka “Progressivism”) and “Social Justice” (another keyword.. and where have you heard THAT before?). .. basically, eliminating our representative republic giving the majority of control over the people to the government. When you read their outline, you can see the parallels of what is going on today (and in prior years while we all slept)

  • The Progressive plan for “social justice”, unlike the communist revolutionary plan, was to make incremental changes, over years, in the system to avoid panic. (where the communist agenda was to get organized and jump right into a ‘take over’ revolution.. blow up govt buildings, etc. .. oh wait.. that’s what Barry’s friends Bernadine Dohrn and Bill Ayers did.. and said they wished they’d done more!).
    basically, these days, people who take the time to do their research, are finding that they’ve taken socialism, marxism, communism, liberalism (the predecessor to “Progressivism”) and the ideal for “social justice”, thrown them all into the caldron called “Progressivism”.

  • The cornerstone of control for the Progressive plan is the health industry. (heard anything about that lately?) Also, like you saw with the German socialists; the government gun control, take over of the banks, education, media, entertainment propaganda and the auto industries all became pieces to the puzzle working toward a quiet “fundamental change” of the country (gee, where have we heard that?). Don’t forget that the leader who caused so much devastation was elected on the platform of “change”. It took years of incremental social changes - getting everything into place - before things started getting really out of hand. .. the ‘incremental’ changes. .. the kind of changes that people didn’t think much about because all else seemed normal.. and it didn’t interfere with their personal lives at the moment. ... well, not until it was too late.

  • The USA is different in that we have a Constitution and Bill of Rights and are set up to be a representative republic. We also have independent States’ constitutions. (Have you noticed how many states are reaffirming their soverenty lately? They see what’s coming.) If “the people” can prevent a corrupt hijack of our election process, those are probably the only things that can save us from going over the brink. (one of the reasons to keep ACORN out of the election processes)
    BUT, for the past few generations, with a Progressive plan infiltrating and embedded into the education system (using revisionist history), the media and entertainment industry (creating a breakdown in the moral fiber of the social structure & glorifying those will Progressive ideals), much of our population is unaware of any plan or that the Progressive plan is to ‘dumb down’ and lull Americans into a false sense of security of

  • ‘let the elected people take care of things’. Most people haven’t learned (yet) that the Progressives have been working for a century to usurp our Constitution and basic fiber of what is the United States of America. ... but on the other hand, many people of BOTH parties ARE becoming aware. That is what the tea parties are all about. You see patriots of both parties raising awareness that the very fiber of our nation is on the brink of destruction at the hands of the Progressive plan.
    What you’re seeing with the current administration is an unpresedented style of personal attacks on citizens and groups who educate and/or support our Constitution and basic structure of our form of representative government. They are following the Saul Alinsky method of first ignore, then ridicule and then attack and personally destroy the “threat” to their agenda.

    Answer by Carpy at 10:36 AM on Mar. 30, 2010

  • Did you know that Barry taught the Alinsky tactics when he taught “Community Organizing”? (also, it makes us remember when he was campaigning in NV & told his constituents to “Get in their Faces!”)
    At Occidental, Obama says that he “sought out the more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists.” And yet, there are those who choose to dismiss this guy’s radical anti-American life agenda.

    Answer by Carpy at 10:37 AM on Mar. 30, 2010

  • People are self-educating these days. The more they recognize that the Progressive agenda is present in both major parties, the more alarm bells are going off. If people don’t become aware of the danger we’re in and start doing our jobs of alerting others and participating, we’ll end up with similarly failed and oppressive government systems like other communist and socialist countries. Our lifestyles of having the incentives and freedoms to achieve our goals will be forever lost or compromised.
    So when Russ Vaughn tells those who are violating their OATH to “Protect and Defend the Constitution of the United States of America” that “We the people find you in contempt of your constituents, and therefore unfit to continue serving in the office to which we elected you.”, I tend to applaud and agree with him.

  • Hmmm...Because you say so it makes it true?

    I looked up 1920's progressivism and didn't find anything like what you're talking about.

    "In response to the economic and social conditions of the late 19th century, Progressives advocated a wide range of economic, political, social, and moral reforms.[2]
    Removing corruption from politics was a main Progressive goal, with many Progressives trying to expose and undercut political machines and bosses."

    "Many Progressives supported prohibition in order to destroy the political power based in saloons."

    The only mention of communism I found was in India. Oh and Glen Beck apparently says progressivism leads to Nazism (communism).

    In this case, she's hoping everyone will think so, because it fits her agenda. Yet, when she sees something she does not like, she'll scream for PROOF.
