  •  Proud to be a liberal (none)
    When someone calls me a liberal, I thank them and take it as a compliment.  They resent the fact that I don't accept the label as pejorative.

    And I give them a standard definition of "liberal" from the American Heritage dictionary (in case they are confused):

    liberal

    SYLLABICATION:
    lib·er·al

    ADJECTIVE:
    1a. Not limited to or by established, traditional, orthodox, or authoritarian attitudes, views, or dogmas; free from bigotry. b. Favoring proposals for reform, open to new ideas for progress, and tolerant of the ideas and behavior of others; broad-minded. c. Of, relating to, or characteristic of liberalism.
