Why I’m a Liberal

I have been a liberal all of my adult life. 

I am proud of this fact. 

It was Liberals who got women and African-Americans the right to vote. 

It was Liberals who created Social Security and lifted millions out of poverty. 

It was Liberal who ended segregation and passed the Civil Rights Act. 

It was Liberals who protect the environment by passing the Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act. 

Are Liberals perfect? Of course not. No one is. 

Have Conservatives done great things? Of course. BUT- 

What did Conservatives do? They opposed every one of these programs. EVERY ONE. 

So when someone hurls the word “liberal” at my feet, as if it were dirty, something to run away from, something that I should be ashamed of, IT WON’T WORK. 

Because I will pick up that label and wear it as a badge of honor.
