I believe I understand your point. There's nothing wrong with the word "progressive" per se, except that nowadays, in the context in which it's mostly used, it's democrats saying,

"yeah, we do have a lot to apologize for, and we promise that if we're elected, we won't be nearly so demanding as you feel we've been in the past. Hey, just look at how we folded on the FISA debate."

What's that, one word versus over 40 to communicate the same idea? Dog whistle-politics at its best!

Wouldn't it be nice if we had a candidate who says, "I'm not just a liberal, I'm a paleoliberal, and I'm going to eat your children. Ha ha ha ha."
