Progressive socialism, statism, collectivism, Marxism, and communism is the antithesis of our Constitutional Republic. It is indeed the enemy of our foundational principles and values. Churchill claimed that socialism is a “philosophy of failure and a creed of ignorance.” We are embroiled in a seminal ideological war in America, one that has to be won by constitutional conservatives…not leftists, and certainly not those who subscribe to the principles of being moderate. There is a clear and present chasm, a choice for us to make.
