Amazing the stories people can fabricate in their own minds.

Ack! You beat me to it!

What I was going to say was that when I am in left field, what I want is for the ball to go to right field. I'm a terrible softball player, and I stand out there in left field praying, "please don't come to me.....please don't come to me....."

They shouldn't be looking to the government to provide that though. That's the key difference between left and right I think.

However, it's also been my conclusion after more than 7 decades of observing Americans that the conservatives typically don't want to understand or have civil discourse with progressives, they just want to mock and insult them and keep on building up the barriers. Witness post # 6 above as a prime example of that. So with you being a conservative I must admit I'm puzzled, curious and just a little bit suspicious about what your motive is for asking what the progressives want the most.
Wow.....just.....wow........

Are you saying that progressives want "civil discourse"? The very ones who throw around the accusation of "racism" with reckless abandon?

nobody SAID anything about looking to the government..but i have seen countless articles and such describing how and why healthcare should NOT be in the hands of for profit business and we have politicians being lobbied to death to write LAWS favoring business WE could use some politicians writing laws that favor livi\able working conditions AND a livable wage..
Globalism is a cross party phenomenon that started as a business interests policy and was corrupted by the left and is treated almost as if it is sacrosanct and nothing can be done...if Globalism was revisited it would certainly help...as Ross Perot observed we ALL end up equal at six dollars an hour with globalism

What Do the Folks in Left Field Want the Most?


Complete abolition of all competition.

Because the Lefties' ideas always lose when they have to compete with normal people.

As far as conservative ideology I can live with or even support? Gun rights is probably the most obvious thing.
You should move to the United States of America!
