The Regressive Left, the Progressive Right

I was at a party in Beverly Hills last night with a reality star turned movie producer, and as we debated the details of Brexit and the anti-Second Amendment sit-in executed by Democrats in D.C. this week, he said the words, “I trust my government.”

I had to admit that in my conservative circles, I had never heard those words uttered, not even in reference to Reagan, or majorities in the House and Senate.

If “progressive” means moving forward, and “regressive” means moving backward, which party is which? We have progressed throughout history away from centralized power. The left wishes to regress back to an elite monarchy who decides what is best for the peasants. Their model for this is the EU that has been rejected by U.K. voters. There is nothing progressive about the left and the Democratic Party.
