    Reformist is the only one that you could call all people that label themselves progressives. So I pick that one.

    At it's root it had a very strong pro labor and civil rights aspect, but you are correct that the one absolute commonality was being reformist, which is how they got the name.

    I picked a bunch of them.
    Not too sure about "socialist", but I voted for it because most of the socialist-leaning individuals I know refer to themselves as progressives.

    I chose the middle three pro labor, reformist and pro civil liberties.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    I chose those three, plus feminist, reformist, socialist.
    The only one I'm not too sure about it socialist.
    I'm not sure my understanding of what socialist means is sound.

    You forgot to include "hate America."
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
