Glenn Beck, Progressives and Me (Wall Street Journal)

History professor Ronald J. Pestritto, in today's Wall Street Journal:

"The progressive movement did indeed repudiate the principles of individual liberty and limited government that were the basis of the American republic. America's original progressives were convinced that the country faced a set of social and economic problems demanding a sharp increase in federal power. They also said that there was too much emphasis placed on protecting the liberty of individuals at the expense of broader social justice."
