Progressivism is not an ideology at all, but an attitude towards the world of politics that is far less black-and-white than conservatism or liberalism, breaking free from the false and divisive dichotomy of liberal vs. conservative that has dominated American politics for too long. Progressives aren't simply liberals; progressives see the world for what it is, accept it as ever-changing and dynamic, and choose the best course of action in line with decidedly American values. -From an article on Alternet.org by Andrew Garib

Ted Nugent for Mitt Romney at NRA Convention: “Chop their heads off in November”, “I will be dead or in jail” if Obama Re-elected

Here’s the video. At an NRA event with a mostly White crowd that is alternately watching and handling firearms, Nugent engages in what seems to be incitement to violence. Calling Obama and Clinton “criminals,” and sprinkling his oration with several lies, Nugent exhorts the crowd to get everyone they know to vote for Romney.
