1. Government Investment, not Government Spending
Why are the products you buy at Costco, Sam's Club, or some other warehouse store cheaper? Or why are things at your locally-owned store more expensive? The issue is how much of each product, and how much total, that each store buys. When you are a producer, and it costs you fifty cents to make a...
2. Why Progressives Support the Environment
Culture & Society - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 13:44:30
If the Progressive movement can be claimed to have a beginning in the United States, that beginning must be with President Theodore Roosevelt. President Roosevelt enjoyed hunting, and he believed strongly in keeping the environment clean, setting aside land for public use, state and national park...
3. Why Progressives Support Strong Regulation
Culture & Society - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 13:52:16
Today, everywhere, people are bombarded with the message that government is too large. However, progressives believe that government can be good when it fulfills its purpose. Government is there to protect the public from dishonesty and unfairness, and to that end, we all want to be protected. We...
4. Why Progressives Support Food Safety
Culture & Society - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 11:52:12
Progressives have always maintained that strong government regulation is the key to enjoying safe food. Corporations in the food industry and free-market advocates have long been against government regulations, viewing them as unnecessary and cost-prohibitive. Yet we have to remember that only a ...
5. Why Progressives Support Government Investment in Research and Development
Culture & Society - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 11:51:23
Let's be realistic. Private companies have only one duty--to make a profit. That is their fiduciary duty to their shareholders. Not only that, but they have a fiduciary duty to those shareholders to turn out profits quarter after quarter, year after year. However, the nature of research is that i...
6. Term Limits
Culture & Society - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 13:54:19
The corruption rife in the current U.S. government has many educated people calling for term limits to be set on our legislative branch. But are term limits really a good idea? Or will term limits actually accelerate the corruption currently present and spread even wider, and cause even more prob...
7. Why Progressives Support a Strong Federal Department of Education
Culture & Society - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 13:44:30
Many people of the "small government" persuasion have persuaded themselves that the Department of Education is not necessary. Progressives disagree, and I can tell you from my own experience that some of the arguments for abolishing the Department of Education don't make sense. For one thing, we ...
8. Why Progressives Support Strong Unions
Culture & Society - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 13:50:54
There's a lot of talk (mostly unfounded) these days about how unions are destroying the country. In fact, most of the benefits we enjoy today in our working (and leisure) lives come from unions, and without strong unions, these benefits can be easily eroded until we are left at the mercy of our e...
9. The Little Red Songbook and its Place in History
Culture & Society - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 13:54:23
Music has always been a uniting force, and protest movements are always a draw for creative people. In the early part of the 20th century, the movement for workers' rights led to the publication of the Little Red Songbook, a collection of protest songs illustrating the cause, victories, and defea...
10. Why Progressives Support Social Security
Music - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 13:51:26
Many people involved in politics are referring to the Social Security retirement program as an "entitlement." In fact, people who receive Social Security payments have paid their earnings (7% and above if you work for a company, 15% if you are self-employed or a business owner) for years before t...
11. Why Progressives Support Government Investment in the Arts
culture-and-society - Fri, 20 May 2011 19:56:16
A lot of people believe that the United States should remove funding for the National Endowment for the Arts, and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Some of those people see art as a hobby, or think that the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities fun...
12. How I Became a Progressive
culture-and-society - Tue, 10 May 2011 21:51:10
I was a child in the 1960s and had parents that watched the news and political conventions. I overheard them many times, and was politically aware by the time I was about eight years old. Each night we watched the Vietnam War on television during the news, and my parents took the time to answer m...
13. Progressive Values
squidoo-community - Sun, 01 May 2011 16:07:32
Progressive or liberal politics has been unfairly maligned by those who oppose them, so I will attempt to show everyone what progressive politics is really about through a series of lenses on the subject. I don't care if you agree with the political view, or disagree with the political view. What...
