The hill Liberals have chosen to die on in 2014.

This is Elizabeth Warren's 11 commandments of progressivism. Moses got it done in ten, but then he was a private sector contractor.

"What are our values?" Warren asked the audience, some of whom held up "Run Liz Run" signs. "What does it mean to be a progressive?"
She went on to outline 11 tenets of progressivism:
- "We believe that Wall Street needs stronger rules and tougher enforcement, and we're willing to fight for it."
- "We believe in science, and that means that we have a responsibility to protect this Earth."
- "We believe that the Internet shouldn't be rigged to benefit big corporations, and that means real net neutrality."
- "We believe that no one should work full-time and still live in poverty, and that means raising the minimum wage."
- "We believe that fast-food workers deserve a livable wage, and that means that when they take to the picket line, we are proud to fight alongside them."
- "We believe that students are entitled to get an education without being crushed by debt."
- "We believe that after a lifetime of work, people are entitled to retire with dignity, and that means protecting Social Security, Medicare, and pensions."
- "We believe—I can't believe I have to say this in 2014—we believe in equal pay for equal work."
- "We believe that equal means equal, and that's true in marriage, it's true in the workplace, it's true in all of America."
- "We believe that immigration has made this country strong and vibrant, and that means reform."
- "And we believe that corporations are not people, that women have a right to their bodies. We will overturn Hobby Lobby and we will fight for it. We will fight for it!"

So to re-cap: Higher taxes, higher minimum wages, more regulation of everything from Wall St. to the Internet, gay marriage, more illegal immigrants, and LESS religious freedom.

In other words, same old sh1t dressed up in a brand new pile and buffed to a high sheen. Elizabeth Warren, living proof that you really can polish a turd.

Oh, and by the way, this is Lizzie's take on Conservatives:

And the main tenet of conservatives' philosophy, according to Warren? "I got mine. The rest of you are on your own."

Which is just SO last century. That was the old Conservatism. The New Conservatism is "Get out of my face beeotch!!!" Which you can tell by the fact that Conservatives are buying firearms and ammunition in such numbers that new sales records are beaten about every quarter.
