when someone says they are a progressive democrat or republican, what does that actually mean? What is the difference between a republican and a progressive republican or a democrat and a progressive democrat?

When "Communist" became a contemptuous term, it was intentionally changed to something more pleasant sounding - "Progressive" (in the 1920s).
So, when you hear Hillary and Barry speak to the “Progressives”, many people are unaware of what that actually means.
When, during the primaries, Hillary said that she likes to think of herself as a "Progressive like the 1920s Progressives", maybe she felt that she could say it out loud because of the basic ignorance of the citizens knowing what that actually means. Patriotic Democrats and/or Republicans who believe in our representative form of government are NOT "Progressives".

Look up Cloward & Piven ... There was a photo of them in the White House with Bill Clinton. They were a husband & wife team who devised a plan to collapse the very system of the USA so it could be replaced with "Socialism" (another word for marxist-lite aka "Progressivism") and "Social Justice" (another keyword.. and where have you heard THAT before?). .. basically, eliminating our representative republic giving the majority of control over the people to the government. When you read their outline, you can see the parallels of what is going on today (and in prior years while we all slept).

The Progressive plan for "social justice", unlike the communist revolutionary plan, was to make incremental changes, over years, in the system to avoid panic. (where the communist agenda was to get organized and jump right into a 'take over' revolution.. blow up govt buildings, etc. .. oh wait.. that's what Barry's friends Bernadine Dohrn and Bill Ayers did.. and said they wished they'd done more!).
So.. basically, these days, people who take the time to do their research, are finding that they've taken socialism, marxism, communism, liberalism (the predecessor to "Progressivism") and the ideal for "social justice", thrown them all into the caldron called "Progressivism".

for the past few generations, with a Progressive plan infiltrating and embedded into the education system (using revisionist history), the media and entertainment industry (creating a breakdown in the moral fiber of the social structure & glorifying those will Progressive ideals), much of our population is unaware of any plan or that the Progressive plan is to 'dumb down' and lull Americans into a false sense of security of 'let the elected people take care of things'. Most people haven't learned (yet) that the Progressives have been working for a century to usurp our Constitution and basic fiber of what is the United States of America. ... but on the other hand, many people of BOTH parties ARE becoming aware. .
