Shit a heroin addict know nothing more than the drug like a kid doesnt know a pound of candy isn't good for you. Welcome to the progressive movement you've already taken the pill.
You do realize that I could just switch the word "progressive" with the word "conservative" and you'd have an equally valid argument, right?
From what I've understood of true conservatives, e.g. Ron Paul, they seek to limit the state. The progressive MO is to appeal to the state for whatever.
Most people these days clamor to the state for solutions, more often than they seek solutions from themselves, each other, or through local communities.
The progressive ideology is partly responsible for the expanding scope of the federal government over everyone's decision-making. True conservatism doesn't advocate that.
