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".
