Liberal and Proud Of It


"How come liberals never admit that they're liberal?" he asked. "They've now come up with a new word called 'progressive,' which I thought was an insurance company but apparently it's a label."

Here's my response to Marco Rubio.

Say it loud and say it proud,
I'm proud of being a liberal and I won't back down.

Here is what I believe.

I believe that every American should have the chance to lay the golden egg of economic prosperity. At present, we are nowhere near this goal. For all of the Rubio's of America who have made a cozy place for themselves, there are thousands of others who, through no fault of their own, have not had the same opportunities for success.

I believe that a woman's body is her own temple to do with whatever she pleases.

I believe that unions are a benefit to society, imperfect as they may be.

I believe that the federal government has an important role to play in ensuring healthy environments and preventing runaway capitalism.
