I agree with this
However, the difference between progressives and conservatives
Progressives see the way for them to not be poor anymore is through free education, social programs to free up their resources and spend on investment
Conservatives see the solution of no more poor by them simply being dead.
Lets face facts. livable wages for uneducated jobs simply don't exist anymore in america. they all went to china, india, etc..and they won't come
So, the solution, educate..mass education...try to get everyone a specialized skill. Let the rest of the world have manufacturing, we can have
administration, consulting, innovative invention, etc.
The conservatives are stuck in some 1920s mindset that somehow we still have this mega booming dirty blue collar labor force job market...we don't,

absolutely identical in practice.
I assume that now I showed you the facts, your entire perspective has changed and you now accept the failure of conservatism...great...oh...wait,
nevermind, you will just ignore the facts as usual.
