Dictionaries are a product of the liberal elite to educate the population and are an instrument for government control. In the Soviet Union, the dictionary was held in the same esteem as the Das Kapital and the Communist manifesto - the portrait of Samuel Johnson could be seen alongside Marx and Lenin during military parades.

Lenin himself, once said, that Johnson was "the true companion of the proletariat"

In the 1950s and 60s, Conservative leaders in the America accused the dictionary of being "Soviet propaganda" and was instrumental in the gay-liberal-atheist-evolution pandemic of 1968 across regions of Texas. In 1983, Regan made possession of a dictionary as "treason" and a capital offence. However, recently, FOXNews has uncovered evidence of "dictionary panels" in ObamaCare with Conservatives fearing that American children might see their standards of English and vocabulary improving.

After all, languages are a liberal method to destroy the traditional family.

Please, if you own a dictionary - burn it. Think of the children.

Nice strawman you built.

When do you plan on setting it ablaze?

“Progressive” is the newest rebranding effort for Marxists, Maoists, Stalinists, Leninist and socialist.

Progressive people are the idealists who hope to modify capitalism to be more inclusive for all as opposed to the select few who run America. The problem is that they are attacked by the Right who often use the most crudest analogies to besmirch them. Progressives are attacked by the Left as not being revolutionary. Hence the hard Left claim "they try to reform capitalism when the answer is to smash capitalism".

Get ready to "progress" your way to the Gulag comrade. The Party members require the redistribution of all wealth, they want it all. You can keep keep a shovel, you will need it. Praise Comrade Obama!

I think most on these forums are at least partially progressive with a touch of real conservatism. Not the fake conservatism where the government takes rights away, but where it protects our inalienable rights.


Given that Obama's folks claim to be progressive, the idea of progressives protecting inalienable rights is laughable. Progressives is just another name for socialists and Marxists. They have to change their name from time to time in the hope of tricking people who remember what damage they did to the country and individual freedom last time they had power.

Classical Liberal is what I would call people who are committed to the original intent of the constitution's bill of rights (unalienable rights) and the separation of powers which protects us from a Federal government large enough in power to strip us of those rights. In the sixities neo-Marxists took over "liberal" institutions and organizations and no one took up the cause of protecting constitutional freedom in a big way after that. The ACLU is a joke. It always makes me laugh with the Left calls people who advocate for the constitution "conservatives" and "right wing extremists."
