My first thought, when I read the title of your post was that it was an oxymoron, that 'sane' and 'progressive' couldn't be used together...

Some reflection on the issue, thinking about long time friends and family members who think of themselves as 'progressives' but seem to be sane and rational people (most of them anyway) made me realize that it's mostly in the field of political economy that 'progressives' are insane. Not completely limited to that field, because the idea that using government power to make people/society/the world  "better" is insane also... I conclude that sane people who are misinformed and/or ill-informed can have insane ideas.



Why blather on for three pages about a link you haven't watched instead of just watching the video?

It's a fantastic video and you'd probably agree with it.

Lusignan apparently does an incredible amount of research and then lays it out for you, demolishing the case against Trump.

She may generalize, but doesn't lie or misrepresent, and if you think you've caught her in a specific lie please point it out.

Mostly because I think the "case against Trump" is a sideshow and I'm not really interested.

No, that's a side issue too, unless the idiot really does nuke a city somewhere.

When someone like David Duke supports a Republican, the Fake News are all over it.  When a racist supports a Democrat, they don't report it. That's how they manipulate people like Ahhell.  He's sitting there thinking every time he hears a racist endorse a party, it's the Republicans.  Of course he does, that's by design.


I know that. And did you know what racism means in modern day? If you want equal rights, as a white person, that's basically Hitler.

If you come out against Affirmative Action, you're worse than the Nazis. Racism's meaning has changed. References provided upon request.

Racists in modern day (meaning those who want equal rights and protections for whites) vote Republican. There are also racists who recognise the disproportionate danger of certain groups.

As far as people who would hate an individual based on the colour of their skin, I don't even think that &^%*ing exists anymore.

Did you know that the American Communist party hasn't run a candidate since I think it was the 90s.  They just endorse the Democrat in every election?

You probably didn't know that because the Fake News media doesn't report it for obvious reasons


I would assume they would.

Here's something I don't say to you a lot.  I agree!

Greg Gutfeld - I became a conservative by being around liberals and I became a libertarian by being around conservatives

Matt Stone - I hate conservatives, but I really f'ing hate liberals
