    Whats funny is that you think anything OWS has to say is "new". It's as old as 1918 Bit, seen many times since. There is nothing progressive (old definition, something new moving forward) about the brand of anti-capitalism, pro-communal, pro-communism rhetoric, it's the same old story we've heard many times. Workers unite, stop the business men, share more stuff with eacvh other, power to the "people", down with the Millitary and nationalism, etc, etc, etc.

    True Progressive would be a legitimate moderate libertarian third party, socially liberal, ecomincly conservative, with efficiency and legitimate social welfareism at it's core. And as we've discussed, it would likely get my support.

    Siding with modern-day anarchists and communists isn't progressive. It's retrogressive.

    P.S. I don't hate them. I disagree with them. Thats a meaningful difference.

    Don't feel bad. I hate the Tea Party and think they are as un-American as Joke McCarthy.

    No worries my friend, I don't feel bad.

    Nor do I think either OWS or the Tea Party are "anti-American". To me, being American is speaking your mind and taking part in the political process, regardless of your ideals or idealism.

    While I'm no fan of Communism, Socialism or Euro-Style Social Welfareism policies, I respect the rights of our citizens to support it and vote for it, if they wish. With freedom comes the freedom to be wrong (as I see it).

    The only fear is that historicly, people who have supported these ideas do not share them same respect from freedom, freedom of speech or freedom from Government control as I do. We'll see I suppose.
