Why I am a Liberal!

I feel I need to state this in plan english. I feel that we as libs have lost our way and need to really look at what is at stake in this very exciting and ever changing campaign.

I am a liberal and I am damn proud of it!

I am a liberal because "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness", I believe in that statement to its fullest!

I am a liberal because I believe that no one should be treated like a second class citizen and should be discriminated against in the Constitution.

I am a liberal because I believe that no longer should a single mother have to choose between putting food on the table or being able to pay for her child's doctor bill. Or for her own health bill!

I am a liberal because I believe that our international reputation is of the upmost respect, and when I or anyone else goes to different countries, that they are welcomed!

I am a liberal because I believe that their are some issues that we must NOT compromise on!

I am a liberal because I want to preserve this beautiful planet for the next generation and for generations to come.

I am a liberal because I believe that the government should NOT be in the business of killing!

I am a liberal because I believe that women's rights are humans rights!

I am a Liberal because I believe that animal rights are human rights!

I am a liberal because I believe that we as human beings should care about what is going on in Darfur! We need to stop this horrific tragedy!

I am a liberal because I believe in tougher gun laws that help eliminate the shootings in our schools and public places! We need to really think about this and stop being afraid of what the NRA will say!

I am a liberal because I believe that we are a nation of immigrants and should update the laws in a way the is inclusive of all but makes sure it is not amnesty!

I am a liberal because I believe in a balanced budget and lowering the debt so our next generations won't have to pay for our carelessness!

I am a liberal because I believe that we are not a nation of christians and  that we are excepting of all faiths and religions, and don't discriminate against those that are not!

I am a Liberal because I believe that there is nothing wrong with choosing not to offend someone who believes different than me!

I am a liberal because I believe in actions speak louder than words!

I am a liberal because I believe that we should stand up and proclaim injustice when we are told not to!

I am a liberal because I don't believe in torture!

I am a liberal because I believe that we need to stand up for issues that we believe in dearly even when they are not popular issues!

I am a liberal because I believe that we can have a woman, african-american, latino, muslim, mormon, etc... as President!

I am a liberal because I want to treat people the way I would want to be treated, with dignity, honor and respect for all Gods creatures!

Those are the main points that I believe in. Those true issues that really get to the heart of who I am and and what I believe the Democratic party is! Thats why I support Hillary Clinton! She has stood up against the ones in her own party who said not to cause a scene. She stood up when everyone told her america isn't ready for UHC and you will be defeated! She stood up when her husband humiliated her and her daughter in front of the whole world! She did what she needed to do to keep her family together! I encourage you all to really look at what she has stood up for! What she did to make the lives better for everyone in all walks of life! What she did to make my life better. I care about this because I don't want kids to grow up the way I did!

Hillary stood up for you, now will you stand up for her?

Hillary and I are liberals because we both believe!

And it should be!

Seriously, "liberal" isn't something to be afraid of. Liberal means free-thinking. Liberal means a fair economy that works for everyone, not just a privileged few. Liberal means a healthy planet and a healthy people. Liberal means making friends with the rest of the world, not enemies. Now what's so bad about that? :-)

Re: Why I am a Liberal!

I am a liberal who believe in practical solutions.  

I want result for a better future.  I don't want to debate principal until Kingdom comes while people die of hunger, poverty, and neglect.

There is only one candidate that fit my view, Hillary Clinton.

Re: Why I am a Liberal!

I am a proud Liberal. And that's why I support Obama. No more triangulation. No more DLC centrism. In another diary here people "attacked" Obama as for being the most liberal Senator and for being another McGovern. To me, that is high praise.
