The Best of the Best: Your Guide to the Must-Read Articles from 2014

Being that I’m proud of what we do here at Forward Progressives, I thought for an “end of the year” sendoff I’d put together a list of some of the best original content we’ve produced this year. These aren’t news stories with our opinions added to them like we often write; rather, these are original essays written by our staff that you won’t find anywhere else.

I’m going to list my top 10 in no particular order, based on reader feedback, virality, and our staff’s opinions. I highly recommend everyone take a few minutes to check them out.

Here’s our most read article of the year, published the day after this year’s elections:

Manny Schewitz did a great piece explaining how liberals are being conned into following conspiracy nuts:

This piece comes from an actual encounter I had with an ardent open carry activist:

As the elections approached, I felt the need to vent a bit about those people who kept complaining that President Obama hadn’t done enough:

Here’s one that really got under the skin of many Republicans:

Just a few facts about Ronald Reagan that Republicans would really rather not talk about:

Here’s a passionate article written by Chad R. MacDonald directed at Republicans who continually lie about the Canadian health care system:

Arik Bjorn wrote a wonderful tribute essay to Robin Williams that I’d encourage everybody to check out:

Then we have easily the most controversial piece I’ve written in the last few months:

And last, but certainly not least, maybe my favorite article of the year:

There are many more I could have included on this list, but I’ll keep it at 10 for the sake of time. Many of these you might have seen before, some you might not have. But I would encourage everyone reading this to take a look through these, especially those you might not have read before, because I do believe that we here at Forward Progressives produce some of the best original content you’ll find anywhere within the liberal blogosphere.

I hope everyone has a Happy New Year!
