Six contradictions that sum up the thinking of Progressives, or at least what passes for thinking in those bizarre quarters. 1. America is capitalist and greedy, and yet half the population is subsidized. 2. Half the population is subsidized, yet they regard themselves as victims. 3. They think they are victims, yet their representatives run the government. 4. Their representatives run the government, yet the poor keep getting poorer. 5. The poor keep getting poorer, yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about. 6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about, yet they want America to be more like those other countries. Am I missing something here?
