Progressive Politicians - an Ideology That Spans Both Democrats and Republicans
Progressive politicians in the United States believe in evolution versus revolution. Karl Marxs believed a revolt against capitalism would happen no matter who is involved. Progressives believe individuals play a role in making it happen. Progressivism is often viewed in opposition to conservatives. Progressive politicians do not believe in the individual rights the constitution was designed to uphold, and therefore cannot co-exist with the original intent of the constitution. Progressivism is to move beyond the constitution, to create a living constitution. There are approximately eighty members of the progressive caucus and they chair eleven of the twenty standing committees in the house.

Men are Perfectible
The concept of progressive politicians is that men is perfectible.Progressive politicians believe they can make men and the world perfect through policies. These policies includes going to war in other countries to spread democracy. The founders believed that men are flawed and to protect the people they put in institutional safeguards. They also believed we should not go to war or meddle in the affairs of other countries unless there is a threat to the US.
Our founders believed that power corrupts and created a separation of power. Progressive politicians want a centralize government in order to accomplish government programs, that will redistribute wealth and improve society.
The founders believed that when we are ruled by men and not by laws there is no rhyme or reason why things happen. What a men gives, is what a men can take away.
Jefferson believed that the two enemies of the people are criminals and government, and worked to tie the government down with the chains of the constitution so they would not become the legalized version of the first.
Progressives politicians are in both parties, it is about the Democrats and the Republicans.
Teddy Roosevelt was a progressive and Woodrow Wilson was also a progressive. They all believe in the ideal that we can solve problems with government solutions, which means we have to move beyond the constitution.
The foreign war difference between the two parties is one believes in an US leadership and the other believes in an UN leadership.

Progressive politicians created the first nanny state in order to improve society with the prohibition policy in 1919. Progressives also provide funding to organizations like Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood is considered a left wing organization but includes supports from both parties.
Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger is a progressive . Sanger believed she could make the world better through eugenics; she had an anti black background and gave at least one speech at a KKK rally. She wrote in her autobiography that she believed she had accomplished her goal since she received a dozen invitations to speak to other groups.
