Progressive? Hardly!

This has rankled me long enough now to the point where I must say something or begin keening.

Those of us who are conservatives need to notice how the wild left (not to mention their accomplices in the media) are increasingly using the term "progressive" to describe themselves. We need to begin challenging this warm, fuzzy label. "Progressive" implies progress, betterment, improvement etc. Actually, leftist policies have quite the opposite effect. What they advocate in many areas is not progress, but regression or degeneration.

Time to start pointing that out.
