Progressivism history has shown, has taken many different representational forms.
Liberalism, socialism and communism over the years went underground and since Woodrow Wilson and Theodore Roosevelt resurfaced as progressives.
Both Clinton’s, McCain, Obama, Graham, Reid, Snow, Pelosi and Lieberman to mention but a few, all embrace and endorse the policies and run for election under the banner of a Progressive, regardless of their party affiliation.
They all share the view that governments at all levels must be actively involved in deciding what is right or wrong for the people.
All have ignored the fact that the voters elected them to represent the people by first and foremost upholding and protecting the Constitution of the Unites States of America.
These Progressives, all believe that our constitutional system is outdated and must be made into a dynamic, evolving instrument of social change, aided by scientific knowledge and the development of administrative bureaucracy through larger and larger government in the form of unconstitutional and unsustainable programs and daily intrusions into the lives of the people they were elected to serve.
To fund these socialistic giveaway program, which were unsustainable from their inception, progressives through their sixteenth amendment to the Constitution to fund such programs, gave Americans the progressive income tax.
Today Barack Obama through his campaign rhetoric of hope and change, as President continues to follow the words of the progressive administration of Woodrow Wilson, by asking or taking the permission today to interpret our Constitution according to the Darwinian principle.
Obama, was not elected to even attempt such a change by the American people as Presidents Wilson and Roosevelt learned the hard way.
Governments, our American government, was never intended to be a living thing, nor was it intended to be a government by the government for the government as these progressives want it to become at any costs and regardless of the wishes of the American people.
