I know the difference between Democrat & Republican but, can someone shed some light on Progressive, Moderate, and Liberal Democrats? I know a little about it but, not much. Thanks for listening

Progressive is just the word they replaced liberal with, moderate democrats are extinct or relegated to the cloak room.

I wouldn't say that, lot of Libertarians don't identify with the Republican party.

Gee, and I thought maybe I could learn something, that maybe there were some adults out there that can answer a question without putting their own spin on it.
