McHenry County Progressives
Northern Illinois Progressives (formerly McHenry County Progressives) are members of a bipartisan grassroots movement committed to ensuring citizens have access to and are served by their local government and that an educated and informed public is the foundation upon which a strong democracy rests. This Group is a place where Progressives (Democrats, Republicans and Independents) can come together to share information and resources. It's a place where sensible and pragmatic Progressives of all kinds can work together to resist the total domination of civic and economic life by an ultra-wealthy Establishment. Democratic Party purges of Progressives has made it clear that the Establishment is well entrenched in both parties and is putting the wishes of the donor class over the needs of normal, decent, socially responsible society. It's time to recognize the harsh reality that BOTH major U.S. parties have become corrupted by big money and now only represent their donors. It's time to take back our country by taking over the Democratic Party, driving the corporatists out and restoring its central mission as the 'Party of the People.'Activity status unknown.
