Why Every Vote Counts, Every Time

Saturday, April 30th, 2011

At Political Progressives, we believe strongly in informed voter participation. It’s really disheartening to us when for most presidential elections, only half the electorate bothers to go vote. Even in 2008, one of the highest turnout rates ever, only 60% of Americans exercised their right to vote. Think about that. Then grab your closest friend […]

Birthers Be Gone!

Friday, April 29th, 2011

It’s no secret that Political Progressives is not a fan of the Tea Party. Which is sad, really, because we like the idea of the Tea Party. We’re in love with the notion of a third party to challenge the Democrats and Republicans, to force them to actually do their jobs and pass meaningful legislation. […]

The 2012 Elections – What Will Congress Look Like Afterwards?

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011

Predicting a Congressional election more than a year out is kind of like trying to pick the winner of the Super Bowl before the season even starts – there’s a really good chance you’ll get it wrong. But also like picking the Super Bowl, you can tell a lot about who’s going to win by […]

2012 Presidential Elections – The Runners-Up

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011

Welcome back to Political Progressives. Our writer’s arm is thankfully still attached and has the added benefits of moving and not causing him to wince in pain every time he moves it. He doesn’t think it’s too serious, but he’s going to see a shoulder specialist on Friday. In the meantime, we’ll be covering the […]

December Wins Prove Obama is the True Maverick of Washington

Monday, April 25th, 2011

Dear Political Progressives Readers: Our writer went to the doctor today to get his shoulder and arm looked at because it hurt to move them… so he wasn’t able to type a 1,200 word article tonight. However, we’d like to present to you this piece instead. It was originally submitted to the Green Bay Press-Gazette […]

2012 Presidential Elections – Who Wins the White House?

We at Political Progressives are proud to present the 50th post in our history! Thanks to you, our wonderful readers, we’ve been providing the world with a progressive’s viewpoint on the day’s political issues for almost two months now. We’re looking forward to the next 50 posts and beyond. In fact, we promise to keep […]

2012 Presidential Elections – Huckabee Vs Romney – Who Wins?

Friday, April 22nd, 2011

As you can tell by our title for tonight’s entry in Political Progressives, we feel that these are the two men who will be duking it out for the Republican Nomination. We’ll tell you why both men have a chance below. We’re thinking on Monday we’ll do a run down of some other candidates (i.e. […]

2012 Presidential Elections – Is Palin Ready?

Thursday, April 21st, 2011

The first victim in our Republican lineup of presidential potentials, Donald Trump, didn’t receive a warm welcome from us here at Political Progressives. Things don’t get much better for the GOP as we take a look at tonight’s nominee, former Alaskan Governor and Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin. (Don’t worry, things get better for the […]

2012 Presidential Elections – “The Donald” as the Republican Nominee?

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

After spending a week digging through the modern history of Federal Budgets and examining three separate 70+ page budget proposals in detail, it’s safe to say that we at Political Progressives are sick of numbers. So we’re taking a break (possibly forever) from looking at budgets, and instead focusing on a different number – 2012. […]

Federal Budget Battles – Rand Paul’s (Somewhat) Sane Proposal

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

It’s no secret that the Tea Party and the progressive movement (especially us at Political Progressives) are not friends. This isn’t one of those “they’re the yin to our yang” things, either. They’re the South to our North in the little war we know as the battle for congressional power. However, it’s wrong to entirely […]
