Progressivism Explained

Bill Collier- Under Progressivism the model of governance is based on a leadership philosophy that says “authority flows from the center and responsibility flows to the center.” Decisions are made at the central point and lower level authorities carry them out until the regulations and rules are given to the individual. This may involve a majority vote by the populace, but even then the choices given to the population are limited by the leaders at the core through clever messaging, political correctness, and efforts to demonize anyone who doesn’t buy the party line. Responsibility, on the other hand, goes from individuals who answer to the first outermost circle of petty officials and from them towards the next inner circle so that, ultimately, everyone is responsible to the central authority for their choices and actions. Why do the Progressive spend so much, tax so much, print so much paper currency, make so many laws, create so many swarms of officials and agencies, and have so many complicated regulations, while saying they are “for the People”? The answer is simple- their leadership philosophy leaves them with no alternative but to originate authority over everyone from the center and to make everyone responsible towards the center. They do not consider that they are making private people, private businesses, free associations of private people, and local communities all responsible to the government while...

A New Common Sense- Start Local For Freedom

In 1776 Thomas Paine penned his booklet, “Common Sense”, which denied the validity of the “Divine right of kings”, urged Americans to pursue independence, proposed that American and British interests were divergent, and made the case for the Colonies’ inherent ability to be independent.

Such a case must be made again, but this time we must deny the validity of progressive federalist doctrines, we must urge Americans to pursue true freedom (based on godliness, self-reliance, and true self-governance), we must show that the inherent interests of the Federal Power and the People in their communities are divergent, we must make the case for the inherent ability of people and communities to fend for themselves, and we must do so within a strong spiritual and ideational framework rooted in eternally valid but presently practicable truths and principles.
In short, we need a NEW Common Sense for our generation, and that is what I propose to pen and distribute far and wide via the internet so as to inspire as many people as possible to think, and then act, differently about freedom and their relationship to the government.

My proposal is to take the fight for freedom and engage and use local government as our best defense against encroachments by state and Federal governments. The impetus for this is not merely individual freedom but the preservation of our national union as a free People. As things now stand, we face a potential outcome involving tyranny, civil war, revolution, or secessionism, or even a foreign invastion as well as a combination of all of these tragedies: and tragic these outcomes would be!

If America continues as it is currently going, and if we continue to hope for change through national politics, these tragedies will become an inevitability and not just a possibility. The answer is to become morally grounded in eternal truths that always work when followed, to use local government as our best defense against national government, and to develop a new freedom press at the community to the national level that can replace the current bought press which represents partisan and corporate interests only.

This does not mean that we should leave the national political battlefield, but at this level the best we can hope for is a holding action. None of the major Parties is willing or able to champion your freedom and to transfer any real amount of public wealth and political power from DC and state capitals to free associations and local communities.

We need a NEW Common Sense to restore independence to the People and to free us from the corporate-political behemoth that is dragging this nation to its ruin.

Will you join us?

Editorial Reviews

Review

“This is a must-read for everyone who values our nation’s bedrock principles. What Obama is trying to unilaterally impose on the American people is nothing short of regulatory tyranny. Phil Kerpen breaks down the Obama administration’s regulatory onslaught and shows those of us who love the Constitution what we can do about it.”
Mark Levin, bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio host
“Phil Kerpen offers both a warning and a lesson about a radical minority and its concerted efforts to control the lives and voices of all Americans. Democracy Denied is a literal guidebook on the progressive game plan—now it’s up to us to heed the warning.”
Glenn Beck, #1 New York Timesbestselling author“Democracy Denied demonstrates how President Obama is packing federal agencies with handpicked liberal activists who are rewarding campaign allies, punishing opponents, and pushing the failed Keynesian fiscal policies Americans rejected at the ballot box in 2010. Phil Kerpen’s must-read book provides much-needed solutions to the unaccountable bureaucrats who seek to control what cars we drive, the foods we eat, and even the lights we use.”
—U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina)

“Obama is on a mission—to conceal his socialist record behind a veil of moderation. Phil Kerpen pierces that veil and shows the Obama beneath. He has broken the Obama code.”
Dick Morris, Fox News contributor

“President Obama has sought from day one to bypass elected representatives in Congress and impose his liberal agenda by regulatory fiat. This unchecked regulatory assault is draining the lifeblood from our economy and eroding our liberties. Phil Kerpen’s book is an excellent tool for anyone seeking to understand the consequences of regulatory tyranny and the story of the REINS Act—the most important reform that, if passed, will restore accountability and balance to the regulatory process.”
—U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky)

“You know Team Obama is up to no good, but you don’t even know the half of it. Phil Kerpen takes you inside all the back rooms and back doors that these left-wing power-grabbers have used to subvert the will of the people—and trample the rule of law. Democracy Denied exposes you to the true size and scope of the Obama regulatory Leviathan. Kerpen’s comprehensive research will make your blood boil and stir you to action.”
Michelle Malkin, Fox News contributor and bestselling author of Culture of Corruption

“The American people are the most innovative in the world, but they are being held back by the Obama administration’s extreme regulatory agenda. Phil Kerpen cuts to the heart of this problem and shows us the path forward.”
—U.S. Representative Mike Pence (R-Indiana)

“Federal regulations have the slippery tentacles of an octopus strangling businesses, families, and workers. Democracy Denied exposes the threats to economic freedom from Barack Obama’s gang of unelected regulatory zealots.”
Stephen Moore, senior economics writer and editorial board member at The Wall Street Journal

“The Obama socialist juggernaut is attempting to ride roughshod over the will of the people, skirt existing laws, and sideswipe the Constitution. In Democracy Denied, Phil Kerpen masterfully articulates the challenges we face, and, most importantly, provides common sense solutions and strategies you need to know.”
Jerry Doyle, nationally syndicated radio host

“As an elected city official, I have seen firsthand how the federal regulatory racket hurts local governments, citizens, and businesses. Phil Kerpen does an excellent job exposing abuses and offering constructive solutions to rein in the autocracy of unelected regulators.”
Erick Erickson, Editor of RedState.com

“Phil Kerpen has accomplished the impossible: he’s given us a rousing polemic against President Barack Obama without being polemical. He exposes Obama’s hidden agendas with take-no-prisoners investigative spadework instead of conspiracy-theory guesswork. And he shows us from the forefront of the battle how to stop Obama with no-nonsense legislative and political strategies that any citizen can help with.”
Ron Arnold, Executive Vice President of the Center for the Defense of Free Enterprise, and bestselling author of EcoTerror
