They arrive and then decided to start chipping away at the liberties that they found attractive when they first arrived here. Unfortunately for the Natives they don't notice that their Legislative Body has been infiltrated with these "Control Freaks". By the time they do it is usually too late.
I have found it Sad to watch there newcomers zeal to replicate the disasters they fled from. They are like some kind of disease(for want of a better word) that just keeps spreading around the Nation.
Cary Nation was one of the fist Progressive Movement members and she pushed the Prohibition agenda. When she was Done thousands of people were killed, the Organized Crime was born,and she ended up ushering in Income Tax. She was a complete failure at her cause. The New Progressive launch into their Crusades the same way without seeing the ramifications of their Knee Jerk agendas.
Once these idiots are entrenched there isn't much hope for the people. They just become Sheep.
