I'm not a Democrat, but I am an independent, and I do identify as a progressive. I would say in theory the Democrats stand for economic fairness, efforts to bring about equality for women, people of color, the disabled and homosexuals, protecting the environment, working with the international community and for humanitarian programs in foreign policy, and probably a whole bunch more that's not popping into my head (at the moment)... Do they follow up on these beliefs? Probably not... The Democrats are more of a social club than a cult (which the Republicans are), I think... While the Republicans are a cult with strong 'daddy figure' leaders, and a rigid configuration of sometimes seemingly divergent beliefs (such as market fundamentalism and Christian fundamentalism), the Democrats are more of a social circle or knitting club. The Democrats can talk until they're blue in the face, but rarely do they act on their ostensible deeply held beliefs.
