It seems to me that any attempt to hide this has been abandoned as they see their success in taking over is closer by the day. We see, or should see the obvious examples in our own lives.
First it was some Witch Doctor or Medicine Man saying we have got to hate the people who live on the other side of the hill, or it will bring bad Mojo and we will all starve. let's kill them, take their stuff and take over their huts.
It evolved into:
Those people look different than we do, so we have to kill them or control them before they kill or control us.
Those people believe in a different God than we do so we must kill or control them.
Those people belong to a different Party so we must hate them and control them.
Those people smoke and we don't so we must hate them and control them.
Those people are fat so we must hate and control them.
Those people own guns and like to hunt or target shoot, we must hate and control them.
Those people eat meat so we must control and hate them.
Those people are handicapped or disabled, we must control them.
What is next? Those people have freckles so we must hate and control them too?

People are starting to get a first hand look at what life under a Progressive / Socialist Agenda is like and I’m wondering how much more it will take for them to wake up. Everything the government does is geared towards keeping us at each others throats and our minds off what they are doing. The whole idea of two Parties is an obvious ruse, again to divide us. The leaders are all the same people.
It's easy to understand, those inside the Progressives in both Parties thought processes are ruled by two things:
- The People are not capable of making their own decisions and need to be controlled for their own good.
- Progressives are superior intellectually and therefore we must become the ruling class in a two class system.
When people begin to understand that these are the facts, they can begin to defend themselves.
This pattern has repeated over and over again throughout history with the same end results of a two class system, with one living in opulence and luxury, and the other living in servitude. One way they pull this off is by using the same methods used by Stalin and others. Turn part of the lower working class against the others in the working class to keep the fight between them and away from the privileged / ruling class.
This is easily accomplished through schools, unions and political parties, where that portion of the working class receives special privileges for willingly pushing the ruling class agenda. That group is conditioned to hate the others who are not a part of their union or their political ideology, which allows the ruling class to hide behind them. Give a man in a factory an extra dollar an hour for the same job and they will willingly become part of the agenda. Yes people are that cheap to buy and yes the whole thing is that simple. Everything else is part of a smokescreen to confuse the perceived stupid, illiterate citizens they believe.
The fact it is becoming so in your face these days and little effort is being made by the Progressives among us to hide their disdain for us, tells me we are close to the time where people will have to decide, do we live free or do we cave in to a Nanny State with every aspect of our lives being controlled by the ruling elite.
Sadly, those doing the most to destroy our freedoms are ordinary citizens, completely fooled by their elite watchdogs and leaders. They actually think more government, more control and less freedoms is the right thing to do. Oddly enough the backers of this always include the poorest and most underprivileged among us as they become the easiest people to buy.
It took me a long time to come to grips with how this plays out in their minds, but I think I'm beginning to understand how the thought process works. What threw me is the idea any intelligent person would not look to history for answers and understand that history repeats itself. How could they not realize that if you do A + B it always equals C? Progressive leaders seem intelligent enough and some seem quite genuine in their good intentions, but if they are why this mental block and the illogical conclusions?
I've come to the conclusion that what causes this among the Progressives on both the imaginary Right and the imaginary Left they have created is simple enough; I should have seen it long ago. It goes like this in their heads.
- I am of superior intellect to the masses.
- The only chance the masses have is if we who are superior make their decisions for them and rule them.
- The fact that Progressive / Socialism has always failed and hurt the people in the past is those leading before where also inferior to me, therefore they did it wrong, but we / I will do it right. History does not matter.
- Since I am superior to others, I deserve to live better than they do and be treated differently for what I do for them.
- Since I am superior I should live under a different set of rules as the People are too stupid to be trusted with freedoms.
- Since I am superior it is OK if I lie to and manipulate those inferior to me as it is for their own good.

Started under Reagan - as we have cut taxes and followed his mantra this country has gotten worse and worse.
This statement simply is not true.
Please explain this reasoning.

You can not have a calm conversation with any Progressive I've ever met in fact. They tend to view debate as an attack and when they attack with threats, intimidation and name calling it is OK as they are right and the majority of us are wrong.
