Frog boiling in state collectivism at the expense of individual equality, rights, liberty and economic freedom....at the expense of free market capitalism
Progressive leftist elites, promising the moon, coerce and cajole and swindle their agenda into law, then step back and blame the deleterious, unsustainable, onerous "unintended" consequences on everyone but themselves...
while viciously protecting their policies and institutions with an endless parade of divisive class warfare strawmen..
See: Among many others.... Wilson's permanent progressive income tax, FDR's Social Security, LBJ's Medicare and welfare expansion, Clinton's "National Homeownership Strategy", the eco-marxist left's outright war on conventional energy via unelected agencies, "green" crony capitalism, and now, Obamacare.
It's been a near century long, wholly unconstitutional effort.

With progressives, you get one, two, or all three of the following: a pathological liar, someone bereft of the intellect to realize they're being lied to, and/or someone who has absolutely no problem with the lies if they believe they'll glean a bigger portion of the fruits of someone else's industry.
