    The last "Progressive Party" was one Henry Wallace himself chastised as flying too far left.

    Is Obama not a progressive, just because he's a drone-killer?

    I don't understand, who is allowed to call themselves a progressive and who isn't?

    Who determines this? Is it different for everyone?

    I've traveled to south america, middle east, europe -- anyone who has traveled in unfalttering areas and still thinks life isn't cheap -- ain't really lived!

    A progressive agenda isn't centered around pacifism, not sure why this is a dealbreaker for you and a few others.

      War is over. Communism is simply not that strong or prevalent worldwide as it once was.  You seem heavily focus on communism, why is that?

        historically, the last party that named itself "Progressive Party" happened to be heavily communist influenced.

        So I was wondering if that's the standard of what Progressivism is being defined as, and I was simply cautioning that I don't follow that vision at all.

        I think it's fair to say i'm more of an Obama Progressive, that is also more hawkish on FP than others perhaps. or a (Teddy) Roosevelt Progressive if you want to go further back.
