Musings on the Progressive Mind

Questions come to my mind when I read, watch, and listen to people like Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

What motivates their insistence on telling the rest of us what to believe and how to behave?

Why do they insist that government promise people free stuff? Is it because they believe that by doing so they can impose “equality” on all of us and that is supposed to be a good thing? Or, is it because promising people free stuff generates votes which satisfies their need for power?

If their intent is purely charitable why don’t they run a charity? Is it because they can use the force of law to compel people to finance their intent as politicians? Wouldn’t that be the same thing as satisfying a need for power?

If they believe that our rights as individuals come from our humanity and not from government, why do they insist on having government control our rights?

If they believe our rights come from government what then do they become?
