from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:
One thing we know about progressive ideas is that they must always advance. It’s the very meaning of progress – it must always be moving forward, although the “forward” part is debatable.
And so it is with progressive legislation, or regulation. Progressive legislation passed or regulations mandated never begin as onerous as the author envisions, or first reveals.
The eventuality is always worse than its commencement. This is the progressive modus operandi. American history is replete with examples of this progress, like Social Security, welfare, unemployment insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, etc.
