Vote for progressive candidate

Progressivism is not a dirty word. It means to favor and promote progress. Unlike the term conservative, which means to favor traditional values and views (whose views, whose values?). Conservatism in and of itself refers to opposition to change. You should ask yourself whose views and values are we clinging onto and why?

If we can all agree that our system of governing is broken and needs to be repaired, can we not all agree that it is the progressives, not the conservatives that can and will lead the way. The only real progressive candidate for congress in district four is Ben Emery. He is the only candidate running who lives and works in our district and the only candidate that is not a career politician. What a progressive idea for a real person and not a puppet to represent our interests in Washington, D.C.

It is time for all the progressives (we know you are out there) to get motivated and work for the real change that can only come by putting a local progressive to work for this district.
