About labeling and the American right

Any American individual, group, or publication calling himself or itself conservative, a patriot, or patriotic is a radical, fringe individual, group, or publication that absolutely hates the America we have today and wants to profoundly and radically change it.

Decades of polling consistently show that the political center is supportive of all the achievements of progressivism since the end of the 19th Century and hopes for further improvement along the same lines.

That means liberals and Democrats are centrists on these issues, on which they (we) share exactly that outlook, while so-called conservatives and Republicans are radicals on the fringe.

And that means, too, according to the proper political meaning of the term, that America's liberals and America's Democrats are in fact America's conservatives.

Those who call themselves that are liars.
