Pachacutec asks why you’re a liberal.
I say this all the time whenever my Republican parents are playing Bait the Liberal (gently, of course) at dinner, but I’m a liberal because when my right-wing family taught me to listen and respect and help others and never, ever, ever belittle anyone who was different from me and never, ever, ever assume I was better than anyone else or deserved any more than anyone else did, I actually listened. They taught me to stand up for the weaker kid when that kid’s getting beaten on, to speak up if I’ve got something to say, and to work tirelessly on behalf of those depending on me.
If that’s not the foundation of a liberal life, I don’t know what is.
Why are you a liberal (if you are)?
