Here are a few more Progressives, with the guts to “say what needs to be said”
The Progressive Message lives on.
Progressive issues of fairness FOR EVERYONE, remain to be implemented.
Progressive Voices will continue to speak out,
and continue to get elected — in spite of the tough odds,
always stacked against us —
Afterall the original Progressive Platform is quite ambitious, and it will always be resisted, tooth and nail, by the Top One Percent, who’s main goal is simply to Own Everything, that is ownable.
The Progressive fight has noble roots, rarely mentioned in school anymore ..
Still the Progressive Fight lives on … even if our history keeps getting “deleted”
There are Progressive Coalitions building, because, Someday, The People Shall Be Heard!
ProgressiveCongress.org is a nonpartisan 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to bring together the collective wisdom of progressives inside and outside of Congress to promote
* peace and global security,
* energy independence,
* environmental sustainability,
* human rights,
* civil liberties and
* the health and economic well-being of us all.
There ARE Progressive Organizers, stepping up, because, Someday, The People Shall Be Heard!
Darcy Burner Named Executive Director of American Progressive Caucus Policy Foundation
“An unprecedented number of Americans have worked together to set our nation on a new, progressive course,” said Burner. “I’m honored and excited to be connecting those citizens with the members of Congress working for them in Washington D.C.”
The FISA Bill that just got passed in the House completely sucks!
Wow! speak bluntly much Darcy? Keep fighting for the Truth, and for the People.
Keep that American Progressive Caucus challenging America, to just do the right thing:
The Progressive Fight lives on … Oh NO, Mr Bill! … Progressive are even “invading the U.S. Congress”
Oh the Humanity! Think of the People!
(I think, maybe they are?)

Someday, The People Shall Be Heard!
The Real People. You know us folks WITHOUT a Lobby, in DC.
Hmmmm? What would happen IF everyone we sent to DC
cared more about the People than Profits?
cared more about Progress than Compromise?
cared more about Humanity than Greed?
Maybe on that day, the “Dream of the Founders”, would finally be fulfilled?
Maybe on that day, America will have FINALLY reached its true potential.
We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
… the story of The People continues …
