Really? I tried putting most ideologies on here, and some are even general but oh well  Big Grin
You could just say it if you don't really mind, but I understand if you don't want to so dont feel pressured to do so.

Ah, I thought it would be the same as liberal, but from what I've just read I now see the difference.

How is that different than liberal? 

Our economics are, pay workers livable wages.
Universal health care.
Less guns, not a ban.
Dirt cheap to free higher education.
Bring back workers unions.
End citizens united.
End monopolies.
Stay off of women's bodies. 
And most certainly

Fuck the KKK and Nazis......

A lot of people think they're a Democratic Socialist when they're actually a Social Democrat. Including Bernie Sanders himself.

Yeah, I've realised a lot of people don't really know the difference, especially in American politics. Mostly because there's so much propaganda against socialists in America that most people don't even know what the term even means.

Well, from what I've read, Progressives seem to be more "agressive" with their policies and more against the profit motive than typical liberal, but I'm not so sure that many people who label themselves progressive really make that distinction.

Quote:Economic liberalism has typically focused on using the government's treasury as a means to ends, whether those ends are better healthcare (Medicare/Medicaid), stronger job growth (tax credits) or more robust export businesses (corporate subsidies). The idea is that taxpayer dollars can help individuals afford bare necessities and entice institutions to support the common good.

Economic progressivism, by contrast, has historically trumpeted the government fiat as the best instrument of social change -- think food safety, minimum wage and labor laws, and also post-Depression financial rules and enforcement agencies. Progressivism's central theory is that government, as the nation's supreme authority, can set parameters channeling capitalism's profit motive into societal priorities -- and preventing that profit motive from spinning out of control.

Politically, I am a Jesster.

More seriously though, I don't think it's all too important to attach a political label to yourself unless you work as a politician in any field. At best I can tell you that I am more left-leaning than not. Have fun throwing your own label at that. It doesn't really hold much meaning in my personal life.
I don't believe you. Get over it.

Well, I'd say it's good to know who you most agree with to vote for/ learn about different ideologies to know which one you agree with the most.
