I think we need more college campus progressive groups. As active as the College Republicans are these days, we REALLY need more Progressives to step up to the bat and counter-act this current retro-gressive revolution in America. We need PROGRESSIVES, since the Dems are too weak to step up to the bat (and half of the time, they are in cahoots with the Republicans' racist and elitist agenda). We especially need progressive groups on campuses for Minority students. As a current college...

okay. i'm reading what you're saying but i'm not making the connection. what does campus racism have to do with dems/repubs or liberals/conversatives? shouldn't this be more about people who care and want to see positive change - regardless of what political or other labels they wear or other people put on them?

Yes, that's why I was talking about Progressivism . Progressivism is not Democrat, Republican or Independent, or Liberal or Conservative. It's about progress (the root word). I was saying that campuses should promote social progressivism because progressivism support social justice and anti-racism. Personally, I don't believe in the liberal/conservative and Democratic/Republican dichotomy. I believe they are both corporate juggernauts that do whatever benefits their own wallets the most,...
