The fact that you're focused on "progressives" rather than the masters proves you're part of the problem rather than the solution.
The progressives have been manipulated to believe it's the conservatives who have forced privatization and turned over power to the banksters and the privately-owned global government (UN, IMF, World Bank, etc.). They see YOU as the one who sold America out to private owners because you wanted to deregulate everything. If you can't see how they're manipulating both sides of the spectrum and forcing each side to push different pieces of their agenda, then you're a lost cause. Don't get distracted by the best intentions of people who have different ideologies. Focus on the people pushing the agendas and how they're using your views to further their goals that you only think are your goals.
You've been played by the puppeteers and now you're so focused on the partisan bs that you've already lost your part of the revolution.
At their inceptions, the #Liberty, #OccupyWallStreet and #TeaParty movements all had the same basic goal... What happened?
