Progressing Away From the Constituion

Was talking with my father about politics.  He said something about how Progressives want to get rid of all private property.  I asked him what he thinks a Progressive is.

He responded "Progressives are people who want to progress away from the Constitution."

How the fuck am I supposed to have a rational conversation with somebody who refuses to consider any other possible explanation of what I believe?  It doesn't matter what I say or how clearly I try to explain the error, my dad is convinced that I'm someone who wants "to progress away from the Constitution".
