“If that is their version of progress, what are they progressing toward?” he said. “My version of progress says, ‘Leave me alone, let me go out and work, let me fail, let me succeed, leave me in peace. Leave me alone. And leave my neighbor alone, who I disagree with by the way. Leave them alone, too. Leave us all alone.’” Rich noted that his song “Progress” pushes back at what liberals call progress. “There’s a hole in this country. Where its heart used to be,” Rich sang in the song that topped the iTunes chart shortly after its release. “Old Glory’s divided, on fire in the streets.” “They say, ‘Building back better will make America great. If that’s the wave of the future, all I’ve got to say …” The song then erupts into the catchy and memorable chorus, and just like in the verse, the messaging is hardly subtle. “Stick your progress where the sun don’t shine,” Rich sang. “Keep your big mess away from me and mine. If you leave us alone, well we’d all be just fine. Stick your progress where the sun don’t shine.” This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
