So, the once-proud word Liberal is now a dirty word that even Left-leaning Democrats steer clear of.
So, what part of Liberal do you have trouble with?
The Liberals who put Americans to work during the Great Depression?
The Liberals who gave us Social Security? Or Unemployment Insurance? Or Medicare and Medicaid?
Do you have a problem with the Liberals who fought for Civil Rights?
Or the Liberals who fought for Women's Rights?
Yes I know there is still controversy over gay Rights, but not for Liberals.
Do you have a problem with the Liberals who fought for auto-safety even if it meant a product recall?
Or the Liberals who fought for truth in advertising and honest Nutritional labels.
Perhaps you have a problem with the Liberals who imagined the Peace Corps, to spread good-will among the peoples of the Third World by acts of charity and loving-kindness?
What about the Liberals who brought you the Clean Air act, the Clean Water act, and the EPA and the Endangered Species program? To be honest, these programs were created under Nixon, but Reagan and the two Bushes have done everything in their power to undercut these vitally necessary programs.
But perhaps you prefer the America of Kenneth Lay of Enron, the man who ruined the futures of tens of thousands of people but who has not been charged with a crime because Conservatives believe in un-REG-u-la-ted Free Enterprise, especially for their friends.
