"Progressives" and Other Bull Crap

So you may have heard that Liberals are now trying to say that they aren’t liberal, they are “progressives” or “modern progressives,” in order to escape the stereotype that they are for big government, dudes marrying dudes, and killing babies.

But what exactly is a progressive? Well, they believe that just as humans, and all things evolve, so does thought, morals, ideas, etc. They believe that man has evolved, and as man has grown, ideas of right and wrong, and correct politics have grown, and evolved as well. This helps to explain why liberals view conservatives as backwards hillbillies clinging to their guns and to their religion. To them, we are not as evolved; our thinking is still stuck on an archaic plane, incapable of enlightened understanding.

That is why liberals consider the constitution a “living breathing document.” These people believe that we are stupid for sticking to the principles of the founding fathers, because what was good for them, is not good for us; because after all, times have changed. But I believe, and I believe every God fearing American believes, that what makes us human never changes, what is good for us never changes, what is moral never changes, what is good never changes, what is right never ever changes. You see, we believe God is constant, God is unwavering, God does not change his views to suit the current ideological environment. No, God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.

That means that we have not outgrown the death penalty; evil people are still evil, and if our legal system finds it necessary, then we must send them back to their Maker. Doesn’t the bible read in Genesis 9:6: “Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.”?

That means that it hasn’t suddenly become morally permissive for homosexuals to marry. God didn’t give Adam a husband from his rib, he gave him a wife, and commanded them to multiply and replenish the earth. We haven’t evolved past reproduction have we?

That means that it hasn’t become ok to kill innocent babies because we were to drunk to wear a condom, or it’s just to inconvenient a time to have a child, because as evolved humans, we need to focus on our careers, etc.

That means that men still have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. They still have a right to be free of oppressive government. They still have the right to fair taxation, and representation. They still have the right to every freedom and right listed in the constitution, because what is correct, and what is just has not, and will not change, will not evolve, will not “progress” into something else. So when voting in the next election, research how the candidate feels about the constitution; if they say it is a living breathing document, tell them to cram it with walnuts.

To sort of paraphrase C.S. Lewis, when two people are walking down the wrong path, the one to turn around first is making the most progress and is therefore the most progressive.

"We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.”

Nah, I like my phrasing better. That Lewis was a hack. ; )
