Finding progressive candidates
Here is a song Jim Hermann wrote to summarize progressive values, and make the case that these are American Values.
People who's politics have a populist bent, whether they be progressive or libertarian, often have a tremendous frustration with the existing two party system. This is because the two parties tend toward the monied interests, usually the corporate dominated military-industrial-congressional complex. The two parties often disagree about things around the edges of the empire to give the appearance of left-right paradigm, but on the major things the two parties are in total agreement.
