    Every time I hear the word “progressive” used to describe a person’s political philosophy, I know I am communicating with a person who thinks progressive is equal in nature to the word “advancing” or “improving.” A better way to understand the term progressive in today’s America is to think of it as regressive – or regressing back in time to use the same failed ideas that have forever plagued mankind. In fact, from 1912 to 1920, a Progressive Party formed in American politics whose desire was to embrace the radical liberal traditions that have been repackaged and resold for generations.

    These failed ideas are like the worst white elephant gifts in history, repeatedly sold as new and shiny each time. The pretty wrapping, when removed, exposes a “gift” quickly handed off to the next person once seen for what it is. Eventually, everybody is left holding something they do not want and cannot get rid of. Let the gift giver and receiver beware: the shiny wrapping only temporarily disguises the communist, fascist, socialist, atheistic, and morally depraved ideas contained within. Communism is still communism, even when “bourgeoisie” and “proletariat” are replaced by “diversity, equity, and inclusion.”

    I am reminded of Ecclesiastes Chapter 1,

    What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun. Is there anything of which one can say, "Look! This is something new"? It was here already, long ago; it was here before our time.[i]

    There is another old idea that hangs around, but only in another form. The “Divine Right of Kings” was a political and religious doctrine used by monarchs to claim divine and absolute authority and not have to answer the people or for any actions they took necessary to maintain their own power. Loyal people would surround the throne, taste the royal’s wine, and take the fall when needed. The goal was to have an entire system around the throne to protect them and keep those annoying, unwashed peasants and deplorables away.

    In America, we have no King or Queen, but we do have a uniparty that thinks it does not answer to the people. They use a corrupt system to run interference for them. This system of agencies does not wear armor or carry pikes but acts similarly. Pick the agency, and you will find them surrounding the throne that is the entirety of the corrupt and evil Washington, D.C. system.

    Need more proof?

                    1. Hillary Clinton is still free. The rest of us would have been in prison a long time ago.

                    2. Hunter Biden is not behind bars.

                    3. Swalwell slept with a Chinese spy, and nothing happened.

                    4. Mayorkas has not been impeached, nor has a lengthy list of other incompetent and corrupt criminals.

                    5. Has anybody seen Epstein’s client list?

                    6. Not one person was held accountable for our surrender in Afghanistan.

                    7. The Department of Justice focused on parents, school boards, Catholics, and anybody who flies a Gadsden flag. This is instead of addressing petty and trivial things like border security, terrorism, and real criminals.

                    8. Politicians make their time in politics a career where they work to insulate themselves from the consequences of their own votes while profiteering on a grand scale.

                    9. Every climate summit attendee and the hypocrisy they demonstrate.

                    10. All public sector unions.

    I could go on, and each reader will think of an extensive list of names and agency failures to add to this.

    We have a fake throne, which is the D.C. system. The cowardly armored knights guarding the throne are the corrupt agencies of government who shield the establishment. There are also many who enable this system, assuming they are going to be in some position of power when the “takeover” is complete. They will soon find out they, too, are expendable.

    These reasons, and many not listed, are why I believe the corrupt government system will collapse under its own weight. When that happens, we need to return to government of, by, and for the people using the Constitution we already have. In Restore Liberty, we have a plan for that.
