The only progressive that matters is the sort that rocks. All the blather about how one describes ones politics is just another way for people to fool
themselves, and everyone else, into believing that thier opinions are so important, that a name needs to be developed to describe them.
Its all tosh really. The left, right paradigm is best used only to describe radical politics anyway, since mainstream politicians have the same basic
idea no matter which "side" they are on, its just how they lie thier way to office that differs. Even worse than that, is that the only continent
which actually uses left and right paradigms correctly is Europe, where that type of political structure was first developed. The US is full of people
who constantly fail to correctly identify right and left. They mistakenly believe that the Nazis were leftist, when actually they were right wing
extremists, dressed up as socialists to confuse people.
Mistakes like that are idiotic, and mean that most people who even comment on lefties and so on, wouldnt know a dictatorial, right wing fascism from
a communist democratic nation.
