Liberals never cease to amaze me...

I hear this a lot.

I’m a liberal because I believe in a Constitution that is meant to evolve, grow and progress.

I’m a liberal because I believe in a country that builds our society to benefit 100% of its citizens, not just the top 1%.

  • I believe in science
  • I believe corporations are businesses, not people
  • I believe in equal rights, regardless of sexual orientation
  • I believe that 47% of Americans aren’t looking for a government handout
  • I believe in climate change, not that God has decided to use weather to “punish sin”
  • I believe we must learn from history, not repeat it
  • I believe women deserve the same rights as men
  • I believe our sexual orientation is something we’re born with, not something we choose
  • I believe immigration is what has made this country great, not what will bring it down
  • I believe freedom for all means freedom for all
  • I believe we have the right to own guns, but our Second Amendment says “well regulated” for a reason
  • I believe in a living wage
  • I believe you don’t create wealth by giving rich people more money (obviously nothing trickles down it gets hoarded at the top for bonuses)
  • I believe welfare helps the poor, it doesn’t punish the rich
  • I believe health care is a right, not something for only those who can afford it
  • I believe a woman has the right to choose what to do with her own body
  • I believe a country is judged based on how they treat their poor, not their rich
  • I believe there needs to be an economic threshold which we don’t let Americans fall below
  • I believe we are not “entitled” to Social Security and Medicare, we paid into these programs–we earn these benefits
  • I believe while we are all born in the same country, we are not all created equal, some people do need help
  • I believe investing in education is more important than investing in bombs
  • I believe nation building here is more important than the Middle East
  • I believe rape—is rape
  • I believe demand creates jobs, not tax cuts
  • I believe in those “union thugs” like teachers, fire fighters and police officers
  • I believe we support our military by not cutting VA benefits and only sending our troops off to war when there are no other options
  • I believe we all have the right to follow whichever religion we want, or no religion at all, and our government should represent no singular set of religious beliefs
  • I believe our Constitution doesn’t only protect the rights for which I agree, that it sometimes protects rights I disagree with
  • I believe that being unemployed doesn’t mean you’re lazy, and most individuals who don’t have a job—want one
  • I believe in an United States for the people, by the people, means we protect the people–we don’t leave them to suffer if they hit hard times
  • I believe we should protect the weakest among us first, not the richest
  • I believe we shouldn’t go broke trying to live healthier and longer
  • I believe we should put people before profits

We. should. amaze. you!

What you believe in and what is actually true are two separate things.  Just because you believe in something does not make it right.  That is the difference between reality and fantasy land.  Just look at California......how's that working for you?

A lot of those statements are a bit inaccurate. For example: someone not believing in man made climate change doesn't mean they think God is using the weather to punish people. There are many reasons to not believe in climate change. I am a conservative and I also believe in science. I just don't believe in politically motivated so-called science used to push a left wing agenda.

Love this.

Actions matter folks- sentient people matter- the Earth matters.

Talking and hyperbole do not.

What part do you disagree with and why?
