8. Okay, so you are serious and I then presume that as a progressive you will vote for republicans who will support these particular issues and causes:

o a sustainable environment,
o anti-war and peace organizations,
o labor rights,
o women's rights,
o human rights,
o and so on.

So, you will find groups working on these particular issues and form coalitions that are based on common self-interest to work toward a particular program or policy initiative. Those groups will then come out and give full endorsement and their vote to republicans who give their word that if elected will in fact vote for those issues. Is that what you believe will happen?
