Mark Caserta: One demographic can block progressivism

Liberals would like nothing better than to convince Americans that progressive ideology merges with mainstream values. In point of fact, nothing could be further from the truth.

Progressives quietly understand that successfully imposing their ideological beliefs upon America requires systematically creating a voter base which can sustain their movement.

In the fifth and final addition of my series, “Exposing the Progressive Movement in the United States,” we’ll deal with the heart and soul of the progressive stratagem to fundamentally change America.

Propagating progressive ideology has nothing to do with offering new, innovative solutions to our nation’s woes. It does, however, have everything to do with acquiring votes!

Consider “for whom the ‘bureaucratic’ bell tolls” within the Obama administration.

The “war on women” theme was a key component of Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign. And rest assured, it will continue to escalate into 2016, no doubt in preparation for a Hillary Clinton campaign where all opposition will be treated as evidence of sexism.

The race card has become the wild card for liberals and many Democrats. Progressives would have you believe that anyone who offers criticism of this president, or any “liberal” African-American member of his administration, must be a racist.

As the first sitting president to openly support same-sex marriage, I believe Barack Obama’s “evolution” in his position on gay marriage was politically expedient to proselytize the LGBT vote heading into a very contentious 2012 presidential election where the delineation in ideology between conservatives and liberals could be no clearer.

To say liberal Democrats court the Hispanic vote is an understatement. Liberals continue to vehemently fight against voter ID laws claiming suppression of their voter base. And they’re right! Under what circumstances would a “legal” individual not be able to obtain a simple identification card for the purpose of voting in a U.S. election?

And it’s absolutely criminal what liberals are willing to sacrifice to protect the environmentalist vote. Obama’s willingness to allow American’s electricity costs to skyrocket to advance his war on coal, not to mention the impact on coal families, is very telling indeed. And blocking the Keystone Pipeline is, well, progressive.

For the first time in history, working age people now make up the majority in U.S. households that rely on food stamps.

A low-wage job supplemented with food stamps is becoming increasingly common as more hard-working people are becoming trapped in the net of a progressive administration.

Winning the popular vote is prerequisite to the progressive movement’s impetus, even if it requires some liberal kowtowing.

Yet, we are not without hope. There is still one demographic the progressive movement will never own — Christians.

Polling suggests as much as 77 percent of Americans identify with the Christian faith. If we work together we can take back our country and return her to Godly principles. But we must not “be weary in well doing; for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”

Friends, only one thing will stop the progressive movement — a Christian movement.

And it’s time for revival.

    Progressives are the true class of freedom haters who preach tolerance while being intolerant of all other views. The only votes they receive have been bought and paid for through corporate or public welfare. They have marginalized blacks within urban public school ghettos as the new form of segregation. They follow the model built upon the backs of Native Americans placed on reservations which created a culture of addiction with gambling as a way of life.

    If any wish to verify the racist origins of the Progressive era just google Buck v. Bell, a 1928 Supreme Court decision to see for yourself.

    The entire welfare nanny state shows how Progressives have created a permanent underclass by chaining them with their permanent safety nets. After breeding dependency among millions they prey upon them by dictating the terms of their existence by creating penalties for anyone of this class who wishes to explore opportunities to better oneself. The last thing they want is their victims escaping the hold of the poverty pimps for that would require cutting the budgets of their beloved bureaucratic agencies. These agencies never eliminate poverty, they breed it to justify their growth.

    Instead of just teaching people how to fish Progressives want to give them fish, paid for only by the middle class, for the rest of their lives to make them dependent upon their benevolence. The welfare state is the prime ministry of their Sharia type theology carved, not out of private charity, freedom, or opportunity, but codified by statute within their legalistic tradition. Therefore we get 70K pages of new federal regulations year in and out.

    CS Lewis had their number a long time ago:

    Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience

    Proving that their ideas are in decline the Progressives quickly replaced Global Warming with Climate Change, which shows that all they have left is rhetoric and Chicken Little tactics. Most forget that they first tried this 40 years ago with end of the world as we know it Global Cooling.

    So where is Phil Jones? Have they found him yet?

    All Progressives know how to do is raise new taxes to buy new votes. That is the essence of global warming fear mongering, meanwhile in the midst of the summer, the temp. today is but 74 degrees; which demonstrates that facts don’t sway the zealots among us.

    That was posted on the HD site in response to the regular Progressive atheist zealot named Ralph…
