As I type this, I am still trying to figure out why, after my parents told me so many times, I was getting this sense that I would never be a Democrat.
I have a vague memory of being a Democrat in my teenage years.
But now that I am an independent, I can no longer be a part of that party.
Because my political party is so aligned with big business and Wall Street, I have been alienated from the progressive movement.
And because the Democrats, with their support for war and their refusal to challenge the Republican leadership, have been the party of the rich, they have been a political force that is willing to destroy the lives of those who don’t have access to Wall Street’s wealth and power.
It is time for a change.
What Is a Progressive?
A progressive is someone who fights for progressive policies.
They don’t want big business to have too much of our wealth and are willing to fight for progressive causes.
To be a progressive, you must be willing to stand up to big business.
A progressive’s mission is to fight to keep America’s middle class from becoming the middle class of tomorrow.
The Progressive Movement is the political wing of the Democratic Party.
It has been around for decades, but the party has changed since it was founded in 1919.
Its primary goals have been to break up monopolies, to promote democracy, and to make the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes.
Since 1920, progressives have been fighting to get big business, Wall Street and the wealthy to pay their share of our taxes.
Today, the progressive left is gaining traction.
Its influence in the Democratic party has expanded, but it is still mostly small.
But it’s growing, and it’s becoming more important than ever.
It is the only party that is truly progressive.
When progressives talk about progressive politics, they’re not talking about the same issues that the Republican Party is.
Instead, progressives are fighting to make sure that every American has the same opportunity.
That means fighting for universal healthcare, for universal college education, for a fair minimum wage and more.
The progressive movement is not a party.
It’s a movement.
