Both are opposed to free market capitalism.
Progressivism is really the same thing as socialism
Isn't communism the ultimate goal?
But the Congressional Progressive Caucus is working on it
No they aren't.
You're not doing so well today. You barely got anything right. Do you have anything to add beyond character assassination and lies?
If West really meant the Progressive Caucus is membership a secret? Why couldn't he name names if that's what he meant? I can Google it it's no secret club. West, like you, is lying to backtrack his asinine statement.
Well there you have it, the ultimate leftist 'fisking ' of Mead's post by fisticuffs wherein the cited authority bolstering his 'argument' turns out to be, well, only himself. Fisticuff's last paragraph decrying the possible mislabeling of a political foe is rich. Where was Fisty when Debbie Downer (Wassermann-Schultz) purposely mislabeled the GOP's concerns about religious freedom, in relation to Obamacare mandates, as a "War on Women"? Crickets I suspect.
Then there is this classic bit of leftist snideness quoted by Phil:
"Lawrence Meade might be one of the most non-self-sufficient people living today who claims to be a libertarian. He is living high on the hog off the taxpayers of the State of Wisconsin. His wife Ann Althouse has been abusing her tenure at UW law school for years. She has not published any scholarship in almost a decade but is instead getting paid by the taxpayers of Wisconsin $160,000.00 to sit in her pajamas and write blog entries about American Idol and other such nonsense. Meade does not work but instead is living a life of leisure and enjoying the fruits of his wife's tenure abuse at the considerable expense to the Wisconsin taxpayers. What a couple of phonies."
Whoever the author, he/she has managed a synthesis of non sequitur and ad hominem in one small paragraph. Quite a feat I would say! However, how is any of this an argument against Meade's position on socialism being the gateway drug to Communism? Reminds me of the tired old statist trick wherein anybody seeking to pare back the state by fixing Social Security is simply labeled a hypocrite when, after 45 years or so of paying FICA taxes, he dares to collect it.
