Excuse me. I was wondering if you could step out of your conservative fantasy world long enough to explain to me in more detail about those progressive ideals that are "being forced on you and your family".<quoted text>
Anyone who turns their back on this country, its heritage, and its Constitution are the enemy. Progressives (not all liberals mind you) meet that criteria.
We can agree to disagree but when those progressive ideals are forced on me and my family (Obamacare, gun control, Gov intrustion, etc.), it becomes a different situation and civility should be tossed out the door.
The 2008 elections were a mistake and most everyone knows that at this point. Smaller Government, less intrusion, more freedom....that's what I and millions of others want.
The three examples you gave:
1. Health Care Reform ( I refuse to use standard issue right-wing terminology) which will prevent the all powerful heath insurance cartel from continuing to rip-off and exploit us. Greedy health insurance companies are the #1 reason you or I could conceivably lose our homes! If this is an "intrusion", intrude away!
2. Gun control. What!? Look pal, it doesn't exist. Ask Gabby Gifford's husband.
3. Government intrusion. It was THE LACK of government intrusion/regulation that brought down our economy. It was THE LACK of government intrusion/enforcement that caused the gulf oil spill.etc., etc, ad infinitum.
