Be proud of what Liberalism stands for!! We have survived a Great Depression and numerous recessions...because, of 'who' we are!!
Who led us into the greatest depression in US History? and who's led us in the highest unemployment rates? Conservatives!!. Who have publicly acknowledged by their words and/or actions, they don't care about the Poor, about the Sick, about the Hungry, about the Elderly, or about the Youth? Conservatives, that's who!!
Now, who's led this country out of a depression? and who's led this country, out of our worst recessions? Who cares for the Sick, the Poor, the Hungry, the Elderly, the Young...and the Mothers? Liberals, that's who!!
Be proud of being a Liberal, and shout it out loud!! Because of Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Food Stamps, and other plans implemented...all of us, Liberals, Conservatives, Rich, or Poor...have enjoyed a much finer quality of life, than anyone else in the world!!
Conservatives identify Liberalism, primarily through social entitlements...those entitlements associated with feeding the hungry, healing the sick, helping the poor, respecting and taking care of our elders, educating our next generations, etc. If it all sounds like acts of humility...helping those less fortunate, just as Jesus Christ led his life...then, you can feel good about yourself, because you've done what's right!!
When a Conservative confronts you, and attacks your Liberal beliefs...just ask him or her, what Christian act have 'they' done for humanity, today??
