Are liberals stuck in the 19th century?

They have been 'progressive' for over 150 years! Why can't they figure out the Progressivism only leads to la la land, dictators, mass murder, and total poverty.

Yes. RE: Marx and Engalls, "We just need to try it ONE more time! This time we'll get it right! TRUUUUUUUUST US." "Fairness" is socialism, repackaged.

It would seem you have a serious lack of critical reasoning skills. Example: If liberals have been "progressive" in this country for 150 years, and we have had no dictators, no constant mass murders, and fairly low poverty rates, then it would appear your reasoning is wrong.

No, to "progress" means to move forward. To "conserve" means to either stay the same or in the case of modern-day conservatives, move backwards... More
