This is a term used by the establishment. Language is important for progressives in order to throw off unwitting voters. As I said before, people make the mistake of only describing leftists as progressives. This is not the case. Statists, career politicians, and the establishment all fall in the progressive category.
In order for there to be fairness, or balance, you need to have two opposing sides. When you have only two opposing viewpoints in the mainstream, it nearly divides the voter base evenly. The evidence is proven in the last few elections. The establishment on both sides share power. It doesn’t matter to them who is really in power, as long as it’s the state.
Imagine if a large majority of citizens were unified in putting in place a President who respects the Constitution. Imagine a President who doesn’t use the media, Hollywood, news networks, education, healthcare, race, religion, sex, diet, culture, and our thoughts to keep us divided.
If more people woke up to realize the true shape this republic is in, we could actually still have a chance to use the voting booths to change our course before it’s too late. If we stay “fair and balanced,” not even what’s left of our 2nd Amendment rights could save us.
Time to vote for politicians who believe in term limits, a balanced budget amendment, and our Constitutional rights. Time to stop voting for politicians who pass laws that only benefit their voting base over the rest of the nation. We don’t need laws to define social issues. We don’t need laws to protect us from ourselves. We don’t need a government that mandates us to purchase their services. Is that so much to want? It’s sorta how government is supposed to operate anyhow… so lets try doing things the right way now and see where it gets us.
