The Debt Deal: Ron Johnson

Sunday, August 28th, 2011

Okay, we’ll be the first to admit that we’ve been quite hard on members of the Tea Party over the last week. We’ve called them “Tea Baggers”, blamed them for two major governmental crises, and essentially deemed them the worst thing to happen to government since the Pauls (who also happen to be Tea Baggers). […]

The Debt Deal: America

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

The title is kind of funny, we know. But it makes sense if you look at the series as a whole. We’ve been talking about the debt deal in relation to specific groups or people – first the Republicans, then the Democrats, and yesterday President Obama. Today, we’re looking at what the American people did […]

The Debt Deal: Obama

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

We’ve done our best to be impartial of President Obama, as we’ve criticized several of his decisions in full-length posts. But it shouldn’t come as a secret to any of our log-time readers that we’re Obama fanboys. However, we’re not supportive of the President because he gives great speeches, or because he brought ‘hope’, or […]

The Debt Deal: Democrats

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

Programs the government offers are amazing and tend to do amazing things. The government offers money to military veterans to do all kinds of things: go to college, seek mental health counseling and even provide for their basic needs. The Federal Government is also responsible for our National Parks system, maintaining our country’s national treasures […]

The Debt Deal: Republicans

Monday, August 22nd, 2011

Today PoliticalProgressives begins its week-long series examining the debt crisis and the eventual deal that was struck. We’re going to take a look at it five different ways: first from the Republicans, then from the Democrats, Wednesday we’ll look at how Obama fared, Thursday we’ll do the same for America, and Friday we’ll cover Ron […]

Why Ron Paul Isn’t the Savior You Think He Is

Saturday, August 20th, 2011

One of the knocks against the progressive movement (and there are many of them) is that it’s full of people with half-brained, crazy ideas that would never actually work in the real world of politics. Some people see progressives as visionaries that are out of touch with reality; that while their ideas may be good […]

The Republican Race For President: Post-Iowa Edition

Friday, August 19th, 2011

When we first saw the results of the Ames straw poll in Iowa, we probably had the same reaction you did – and yes, it did involve heads shaking, jaws dropping, and a massive headache. Michelle Bachmann? Really, Iowa? That’s who you think is best suited to take the reins of our great nation right […]

PoliticalProgressives’ Triumphant Return (But Politics is Still Messy)

Wednesday, August 17th, 2011

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s been far too long since we’ve said this, but welcome back to PoliticalProgressives! The demands of our author’s summer camp are over and he has successfully studied for and passed his GRE exam. It’s hard to imagine that those two things are all that have kept us away from blogging these […]
