    I always thought of the political liberalism of Locke through our founding fathers to be distinct from the later economic liberalism of the "progressive" period and then New Deal liberalism.  That's why I ruled out figures from the revolution to be candidates for "first progressive".

    I have to admit you have a good point.  However, I don't want to get caught up in who was the true "first progressive".  I just wanted to reintroduce a figure that has been forgotten, but deserves to be remembered.  So sorry if I offended you or any other Thomas Paine fans.
