Hillary has consistently called herself a Progressive and she has identified with the movement she claims started in the United States in the early 20th century. Among the most notable Progressive leaders in the early 20th century were W.E.B. Du Bois, a Communist Party member, and Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood and an advocate of racial eugenics, an idea that inspired Adolf Hitler to kill six million Jews. These are people and ideas that get Hillary's adrenaline pumping. The Progressive movement changed what they were called to Liberals because of this type of garbage the Progressive name carried.
Progressive has been identified with the Communist movement from the time of Marx. Progressive and Communist were used interchangeably. The Progressives or Communists have some beliefs in common with the Socialists. All of these movements advocate common economics. The dominant belief they have in common is that all productive property in the society must be controlled or owned by the state. National Socialists like Hitler allowed private ownership with total state control. This could even be referred to as total crony capitalism. In addition, all three of these movements belief in state determination of winners or losers or what is commonly referred to as redistribution of wealth.
Marx said that he was not a Socialist and argued with the Socialists of his day. The reason Marx differed with the Socialists was because they did not advocate on one class or what Marx called a "classless society." In the Communist world, all must be of the same class economically, socially, and morally. In the Communist world there is total equality and total conformity. Communism could be identified as a cult. Marx also said that all previous long standing principles, morality, and religion must be abolished. This would then allow the Communist or Progressive belief to be imposed.
Marx explained that to bring about this conforming, equal, and classless society extreme measures would have to be taken. For a period of time society would have to be ruled by the "dictatorship of the proletariat" to eradicate all nonconforming elements. All who would disagree with the Progressive or Communist ideas must be neutralized. The Progressive or Communist movement is a movement that advocates total control of all elements of society, not just economics. The Progressive or Communist movement, according to Marx, Lenin, Obama, Jarrett, and Holder is to be a worldwide movement with evil imperialist nations eliminated or neutralized just as capitalists are to be eliminated or neutralized nationally.
Socialism is an economic movement. Socialism has been instituted in societies with many different forms of government. Socialists believe in control of productive property and an equalizing of wealth based on need and not production. Socialist economies have functioned in totalitarian states and democratic states.
The type of government and economic system that was established in the United States was unlike any previous form of government and economic system. The founders said that all people had equal opportunity, not because the government gave them that right but because it is a right given by the Creator. In America, individuals were not limited to a state in life because of a predetermined status. Individuals were limited only by limitations they placed upon themselves.
In America, it was to be the people who were sovereign and the government was to be the servant. To protect this principle and the freedom of the people, the new government would be limited, divided, and operate under the concept of "rule of law." This new nation was to be a land of individuals coming together to form many different communities and not a community to dominate and control the individual. This was the American Experiment.
What we have learned is that many Americans have adopted the very ideas from which the founders fought to free themselves. Today we have Bernie Sanders and his followers saying that the economic system allowing equal opportunity to individuals is an unfair system and that all must receive on need and not contribution. We have those like Obama, Jarrett, Holder, and Hillary who are saying that a Socialist style economy must be adopted, but in addition to that, the people must be controlled. These Progressives and Communists are saying that all must be equal socially, economically, and morally. These Progressives and Communists are saying that the dictates of the community must control the thoughts and activities of all.
The choice we Americans have is to conform to the Socialist belief, the Progressive or Communist belief, or revolt from all these movements and once again become a free nation and a free people with a government that adheres to "rule of law," limited government, divided government, rule by the people, and the right of opportunity for each individual.
