  •  I'm still a McGovern liberal, always was & will be (4+ / 0-)

    I haven't changed about that, the world has.
    I think people who were liberal who now call themselves progressive because liberal has a bad taint put on it by the stupidest people in media are  runaways. Don't tell me youre going to put up a fight against conservatives if the first thing you do is allow them to define you and get you to change your name.
    i think of people who called themselves or were called liberals and acted like liberals, like Thurgood Marshall McGovern, and FDR. Those are th people I want to think and act like. Nobody who calls themselves progressives can compare to that yet.

    Why let the biggest chumps in the world define you and tell you what you can call yourself?  

    Happy just to be alive
