I saw this on Sunday, and haven’t gotten around to mentioning it until today. I thought I’d let a [former?] liberal explain my feelings about the so-called ‘progressives’ that seem to have completely lost their bearings in this country. Give it a read; Keith Thompson says it better than I can (although I’m about to say it anyway).

Many say that the country is ‘moving right’—some have said the same about me as my views fall more and more in line with the ‘conservatives’—but that’s not the case at all. The Republican Party is largely run by moderates today (pro-immigration, pro-equality, and generally quite progressive as compared to their predecessors), while the Democrats ramble on about racial quotas and how spreading freedom and prosperity is somehow bad.

Scott Bradford has been building web sites and using them to say what he thinks since 1995, which tended to get him in trouble with power-tripping assistant principals at the time. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Public Administration from George Mason University, but has spent most of his career (so far) working on public- and private-sector web sites. He is not a member of any political party, and brands himself an ‘independent constitutional conservative.’ In addition to holding down a day job and blogging about challenging subjects like politics, religion, and technology, Scott is also a devout Catholic, gun-owner, bike rider, and music lover with a wife, two cats, and a dog.
