Why change the name at all? What big difference would that make? And I label myself as a Independent. I really do not think any person, that is "PROGRESSIVE", could only be liberal. I am liberal on some issues, conservative on others. The problems will being only one or the other, is it is a form of ideology, (that never works). This has been "liberals" down fall, and their inability to be taken seriously. Ideology, leaves no room for compromise. And with this diverse culture we live in, there always have to be room for compromise and change. Also, we now live in a world with the threat of terrorists attacks, so we may have to institute policies, that are not favorable, but confronts today's issues. Compromise. Even the democrats and Republicans, join forces on a lot of less say, unfavorable policies, for the greater good. Liberals, more than democrats and republicans, lack that quality. And as we move forward, we need compromise, we need these political groups to work together. And stop all this back-biting and finger pointing.
