Goddamned Liberals

Liberals got women the right to vote. Liberals got African-Americans the right to vote. Liberals created Social Security and lifted millions of elderly people out of poverty. Liberals ended segregation. Liberals passed the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act. Liberals created Medicare. Liberals passed the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act. What did Conservatives do? They opposed them on every one of those things—every one. So when you try to hurl that label at my feet, ‘Liberal,’ as if it were something to be ashamed of, something dirty, something to run away from, it won’t work, Senator, because I will pick up that label and I will wear it as a badge of honor.

Why anyone votes for Republicans is beyond me. All they know how to do is rape and pillage.

DISCLAIMER: Just a reminder, but when I write about "Republicans," I mean the Supreme Soviet Party and its politicos and media shills (so, like, 99% of the unofficial state-run national media, which is very fucking far from being "liberal"), not average, or even extraordinary, Republican voters. Most of my family foolishly votes for these gleaming turd sculptures that populate Washington, D.C. While I consider my family and every other GOP-supporter PT-Barnum-level suckers, I know that it's hard to know the facts of the case if you're mired in media bullshit. This is why I have not, do not and will not term them "sheeple." For Christ's sake, I used to be one of them. And while I'm at it, no, I don't think you're stupid if you're a Bible-believing Christian, I just thing you're profoundly ignorant—a sickness for which (fortunately) there's a cure: edjumakashun.
