21. progressive initiatives that hurt America
- ending slavery
- ending child labor
- vote for former slaves and native americans and women
- ending segregation and Jim Crow laws
- fighting poverty
- social security/medicare
- overtime pay protection for workers
- putting a man on the moon
- supporting public education for all
- slowing nuclear proliferation by working with other nations
- making real contributions to Middle East peace

... and many, many more horrible travesties for which the american public has not yet received so much as an apology. Thank God the nightmare has ended and rational people are in control to undo some of these terrible things.

*Progressive initiatives were not only undertaken by the Democratic party . . . historically
