    The Cambridge dictionary online defines progressive as:
    a person who supports new ideas and social change, especially one who belongs to a political party >

    The internet dictionary is as follows:

    1. A) of, relating to, or characterized by progress - B). by making use of or interested in new ideas, finding, or opportunity - C) of relating to, or constituting an educational theory marked by emphasis on the individual child, informality of classroom procedure, and encouragement of self-expression.

    3. moving forward or onward


    I consider myself as a progressive. I want to move forward - but, I am NOT a liberal. Why do liberals only think of themselves as progressive?
    Yes, I am a conservative, but that does not mean I can not make changes when necessary. If I were ultra conservative, I would not have a telephone, auto, or let alone a computer.

    So do you think that liberals have hi-jacked the term progressive?

    Maybe. But more than likely they're just (as the young Theodore Cleaver would say) 'gressive.
