    I've received this email from a couple different sources - I like the little woman in the cutesy commercials, but I'm not real happy about this info. I don't have Progressive Insurance so I feel somewhat better that I'm not inadvertently creating any funds for libs as a result of paying premiums .....

    How Progressive is Progressive Insurance? This may surprise you....

    I received this from a member and he made some great points that I want to share with you:

    This is a heads up regarding Progressive Auto Insurance. You know who they are. They're the ones with the clever television ads featuring the
    perky brunette actress all dressed in white.

    What you might not know is that the chairman of Progressive is Peter Lewis,
    (see below) one of the largest funders of the left in America .
    He's your typical rich spoiled kid who took over the company from his
    father and apparently feels "guilty" for his success and now dedicates
    himself to making it impossible for anyone else to become wealthy.

    Between 2001 and 2003, Lewis funneled $15 million to the ACLU, the group
    most responsible for destroying what's left of America's
    Judeo-Christian heritage. Indeed, Lewis is himself an ACLU member. One
    of the ACLU projects he earmarked his funds for was an effort to sue
    school districts who have drug testing policies. In other words, this
    idiot wants teachers to be able to use drugs without fear of exposure. I
    wonder what he would think if all his own employees came to work
    drugged out every day.

    Lewis also gave $12.5 million to ; and American
    Coming Together, two key components of the socialist left. The former
    group is perhaps the main group used by the Obama forces to organize
    their activists; the latter group is a 527 political action group that
    essentially served as a front for the SEIU union thugs who ran ACORN.
    His funding for these groups was conditional on matching contributions
    from George Soros, the international socialist who finances much of the
    Obama political network.

    It's disturbing that Lewis made a fortune as a result of capitalism but
    now finances a progressive movement that threatens to destroy the free
    enterprise system. He reminds me somewhat of Armand Hammer, the former
    head of Occidental Petroleum who did business with Joseph Stalin and
    became his good friend, around the same time Stalin was executing
    businessmen all over the USSR .

    What angers me further is the way this company is targeting television
    shows watched by conservatives such as Fox News. Peter Lewis is making a
    fortune off of conservative Americans so that he can destroy our
    country. He's banking on no one finding out who he is.

    Time to let all the conservatives know......

    Peter Lewis is the Chairman of Progressive Insurance Co.
    Peter Lewis (businessman)
    Peter B. Lewis (born 1933) is the Cleveland, Ohio-area based chairman of Progressive Insurance Companies. Lewis currently resides in Coconut Grove, Florida.

    Cleveland. Feel mah pain.
    Actually, Progressive usually has one of the lowest rates of all the high-quality companies in any state on auto insurance. That's one reason they use a six month policy while Allstate etc. are still using one year forms.

    But I digress. Lewis is a character, but Progressive is a very good company. It's an outstanding place to work and it is Lewis himself, not the company, that makes the complained-of donations.

    I have all my insurances with State Farm. You get a discount if you have your house and auto insurance with the same company. Plus you get discounts for having been with them for a period of time. I have rental properties, as well as two vehicles.

    They have been great when I've made a claim. They are easy to work with and not quick to raise rates. They even ignored the year I got 3 speeding tickets. I don't think they run checks very often, I still got the good driver rate after that.
