Progressives

Don't let liberals hold a monopoly on the concept of progress. A "progressive," surprisingly enough, is somebody who believes in progress. But what that progress means is different for liberals and conservatives. So liberals are only progressives if you believe that liberal policies are what will bring progress. To a conservative, liberals are not promoting progress, but regress. After all, progress for a conservative is limiting the government to its proper spheres of influence. It's a useless term, except to satisfy the vanity of the one using it.
