Defining Progressive Conservatism, Again

This gets asked all the time, so here it is once again:

The Progressive Conservatism Movement follows the tradition of Jeffersonian liberalism and Teddy Roosevelt style Progressivism, without sacrificing Conservative principles for comprimise.

We believe every human being is endowed by nature with inherent rights to life, liberty and property that are properly secured by law. We support a strict construction of the Bill of Rights as a defense against tyranny; the expansion of those rights to all voluntary consensual conduct under the Ninth and Tenth Amendments; and the requirements of equal protection and due process under the Fourteenth Amendment.

We oppose all restrictions on free and honest expression, most critically those that infringe on political discourse. We oppose public financing of campaigns and any law that allows organizations to collect campaign donations against the wishes of the organization’s individual members.
