THE PROGRESSIVE IDEAL

2 03 2014

Authored by William Robert Barber

Big government is best. This ideological thesis is the philosophical basis, the very Raison d’être of the progressive cognoscenti. The mission is to substitute traditional American character values such as self-determination, self-reliance, individualism, liberty, as well as the belief that the State is subordinate to its citizenry with progressive ideals. The transposition of American values is convincingly more important (to the progressive ideologues) than the practical effectiveness of governing.  

This alliance of progressive cognoscenti controls Harry Reid’s senate, major media outlets, the bully pulpit, and an extraordinarily competent prodigiously imaginative propaganda contrivance that has disseminated its wherewithal into every segment of American society. An example of propaganda contrivance is put forth by the Democrats’ ace spokesperson, President Obama; he provides the lyrics of class warfare to sooth the guilt of stealing from one to give to another. Of course, in keeping with progressive doctrine, the government takes its cut before passing the funds from one to another.

The Obama policy of “muddling through” and “plausible denial” is purposeful. The highly effective strategy of “plausible denial” has evaded the consequences of Fast & Furious, the Benghazi incident, the IRS scandal, the NSA overreach, and ObamaCare web site debacle.  Both of these policies are a “means to an end.” They are purposefully designed political tactics.

Because progressivism is a political philosophy disharmonious with the principles of U. S. constitutional governance; the governing of America could only take place when all resistance was diminished and abated into ineffectiveness. The prima fascia factual of Obama’s progressives’ was never to govern but to “fundamentally change America.”

Respective of the Obama electoral victory of 2008 in two years the Democrats lost the House of Representatives; and still regardless of such a set back the president was reelected. However, within five years due to the lack of prudent governing, ObamaCare’s horrific Internet implementation, an overall sluggish economic recovery, high unemployment, the nation’s unsustainable debt, a number of self-inflicted snafus, the politicization of the Justice Department, the CIA, the IRS, the State Department, and the president’s often repeated healthcare lies has established some healthy skepticism throughout the electorate. 

The president understands that battles have been lost and won; but the war has yet to be decided. The elections of 2014 and 2016 are  either going to “fundamentally change America,” or America will toss progressivism and revert to its traditional conservative self. In the interim President Obama will issue executive orders, violate the constitution’s convents, raise money, and stack the judicial system with sympathizers at every opportunity.

Well, in celebration of his last Hoorah he’ll play a lot of golf; hobnob with the celebes, the distinguished, and the intellectually inclined.
