What are you talking about? Progressives came out of the fight against Eastern railroad monopolies; who were holding goods ( commodities ) and services ( repair shops and small merchants’ wares, etc. ) hostage. They were originally called Radical Progressives in some areas of the Middle Western States for being abolitionists and… anyway, they’re New Dealers who supported Roosevelt & Wallace, for sure. But, of course, politics does make for some strange bed fellows ( Think VP Pence brushing out Trump’s hair after a roll in the hay, here ).
Today, Progressive policy is best exemplified by the Sanders/Warren wing in the Senate and the Progressive Caucus in the House. And, even more left-center coalitions at the grassroots level.
Anyway, you’re a liberal so I don’t expect much from them because of faulty brain malfunctions, and so I’m rarely disappointed. But, at least progressives have national clout, unlike some poseurs and hosers who can’t get more than 1.8 million votes when people like Clinton and Trump are their adversaries.
