I started this web, because I have always believed in the values of our founding fathers.

I never quite realized it but our Founding fathers were Progressive minded thinkers. I believe that If someone came up to them today and called them a Progressive they would not back away from the name. They would step forward and wear the name Progressive with Pride. For several years now a group of ultra conservative people in this country have created the myth that Progressive and Democrat are bad words.

Our Founding Fathers wrote the Deceleration Of Independence, to break with England. They wrote the Constitution, and later The Bill Of Rights to allow the growth of the nation. To create a county governed by the People and for the People, a Republic. Very much a Progressive minded concept. As stated by Benjamin Franklin, in 1776 after leaving the Constructional Convention and when asked "Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?" With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, "A republic, if you can keep it."

If the word Republic means : A state in which the supreme power rests in the body of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by representatives chosen directly or indirectly by them.

Then by the Founders own words does that not make the United States a Socialist Country...

Meaning of Socialism: A theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole.

After all the first words of The Constitution is 

  "WE THE PEOPLE..."

 

 

"The world once tried ultra conservative government for several centuries. 

It did not work.

 That is why it was called the Dark Ages."
