I felt it important to explain to everyone what I mean when I use the word 'progressive'. I use that term as it came out of the 19th century.
To me it is synonymous with 'liberal'. Our founders of the American Revolution were called radical in their day, the abolitionists and members of the feminist movement were called liberals and sometimes radicals. In the 19th century the word 'progressive' replaced the word 'liberal'. Apparently today the word 'progressive' has come to be associated with Anglos, Bernie (I do like Bernie by the way), Jill Stein or anti-Hillary people and I do not relate to that meaning. I dislike this redefining of the word as much as the misuse of the "Boston Tea Party' by the 'Teabaggers'. I am a life-long, loyal Democrat who voted for Hillary and because I was a County Chair, I remained neutral in the primary. If you look at my blog on my website you will see my platform which is liberal or progressive. If you believe I will fight for the children of New Mexico please support me, because that is my primary mission as Lt. Governor and electing a Democratic governor of New Mexico.
