I liked that.

Reminds me while growing up of what the progressives thought of the working class.

We're charging our battery

And now we're full of energy

We are the robots

We are the robots

We are the robots

We are the robots

We're functioning automatik

And we are dancing mechanik

We are the robots

We are the robots

We are the robots

We are the robots

Ja tvoi sluga (=I'm your slave)

Ja tvoi Rabotnik (=I'm your worker)

Ja tvoi sluga

Ja tvoi Rabotnik

We are programmed just to do

Anything you want us to

We are the robots

We're functioning automatic

And we are dancing mechanic

We are the robots

Ja tvoi sluga (=I'm your slave)

Ja tvoi Rabotnik (=I'm your worker)

We are the robots

Progressive is just another name for a commie-pinko who wants to channel Hitler and rule the world through World Socialism, where everybody lives off the back of the one surviving working man.

We Americans now pride ourselves in our ignorance and want to return to the world where some people knew their place and didn't try to move above it. A country where Opportunity only knocked on the right doors, Where starving people did so quietly and with respect for their betters. A country where people were proud to work 6 day weeks, from dawn to dusk, and children could get jobs just like their parents had. A country where healthcare was only for the men who could properly pay for it.

Let's make America GREAT again.

Don't listen to Lars. He must be joking. Of course, he is a republican. Progressive means what it means anywhere else. Moving forward while dealing with today's realities. There are plenty of us, but through gerrymandering districts we are not well represented.

OK, you caught me. I confess. I did add a touch of sarcasm to that post.

Surely Nazism & Socialism are opposite ends of the political scale?

Surely the word "Progressive" simply means moving onward. Whether that progression is for the better or not is another matter entirely.

It has been my observation that countries who claim to be Socialist (any kind of) or Democratic, have seldom been either, and they have seldom been even close to a Republic. That was particularly true of certain mid 20th Century nations who stirred up a lot of trouble.

Well at the start of ww2 spain, poland, italy, germany, china and russia were all republics so how you say they were not even close to being a republic escapes me. Popst ww2 bith italy and germany had proportional representation forced on them as a voting system because it prevents a party with limited support gaining a disproportionate number of seats. Something to think about when you look at the UK elctgion results and i suspect america as well though I don't know enough to make a case for the latter.

Calling a nation a republic, like calling it Democratic, or Socialist, does not make it so.

Republic - a state in which supreme power is held by the people and their elected representatives, and which has an elected or nominated president rather than a monarch.
