Of course the question was asked by a 'progressive' (if they were even a more oxymoronic term than 'government intelligence' - Progressive Movement would be it). The 'Progressive' agenda is exactly what I oppose - supporters of this agenda should go fix a country that tried it and failed.
What is this agenda they have? "We all have rights as humans, some might have to make sacrifices for the greater good. Non-progressives seeks to curtail the rights of others in the name of profit or in the name of a religious belief."
That is simply an ignorant 'agenda' - and not really one. Funny how they call it 'sacrifice' to benefit them and 'curtailing rights' when their agenda is opposed. No person or entity has the right to impose a 'sacrifice' on another. Our society has long taken care of itself - until the Progressive Movement (in my book, Parasitic Cult) got a foothold. For my book I extensively researched and reviewed the history of many programs that were developed for the good of those less fortunate - and they worked. From workplace conditions and equality to healthcare. They worked until the PC got them and began molding them into the agenda the Parasitic Cult describes.
I have no political ideologies - I'm a capitalist pig business owner. I have no religious base - I'm agnostic. There is nothing selfish at all about expecting to keep much more than half, 3/4, even 90% of what we earn, while expecting those that can to also earn and continuing the tried and proven means to take care of those that cannot. When citizens remove ideologies - of any kind - and emotions from their thought process, we can get elected officials that will be better. Progressives voted for someone based on promises, rhetoric and emotion with no experience of any kind - against opponents that continue to be no better than promises, rhetoric and emotion.
This administration has exacerbated a perpetual self-victimization of those that simply feel 'entitled' to what many have contributed to with their personal sacrifices (those truly entitled). The agenda of this administration is much deeper than simply confiscating more 'revenue' for 'investments'. I am quite serious when I invite all those that feel the failed programs of empire based socialist countries are better than the history of successes of our country. If it has historically worked, don't fix it with known failed agendas. Beginning in the 1970's is when those successes began to fail - because of 'progressive' agenda.
What is the agenda of the current administration? To dismantle our Bill of Rights one at time until the Constitution can no longer stand or be defended.
Only two issues perpetually matter - the economy and our Constitution.
