Nothing burns me up more than these "liberal" and "conservative" labels. Public Radio is doing it; The Journal Times is doing it; all the news sources are doing it. If there is one smart thing the Republicans have done, its remove the Democratic party's name and replace it with Progressive or Liberal.
I've seen it again and again. It isn't a "Democratic" governor, it is a "Progressive" governor. It isn't a Democratic idea, it is a "liberal" idea. I am neither.
It is not a progressive or liberal idea to have decent health care; it is not a progressive or liberal idea to have common sense gun control. It is not a progressive idea to want clean water and air. But these labels put people off. Ideas and people are categorized for us. Instead of reading and learning about them ourselves, our choices are made for us by the media. Stop it.
On a different subject, has anyone seen such a worthless congress? Can pass a $1.5 trillion deficit busting budget but pass bump stock legislation or help for the Dreamers (DACA). Two things it is clear the American people want? Not a chance.
Vote them all out and vote someone in who listens to the people.
