Progressivism is sadly dead. Well not really but it sure the hell isn't going strong. The right has done an amazing job of framing liberals as anti American anarchist and pulling the country to the right. So far to the right that most of the country believes our Republican President is actually a far left nut job.
The right couldn't have done it if a majority didn't want to go along. It ain't the right, its America.
I disagree in a sense. I think America is much more progressive then it wants to believe. When to poll people they want things like Universal Health Care, gay marriage, hell even legalized prostitution as well as many other progressive causes. However the right, it's media, and it's money keep finding a way to stop it at every turn. We are at the point where the extremes are running the conversation in this country now, but the only extreme with a real voice is the extreme right.
