Bill Moyers: The Surrender of America's Liberals
"In the piece, Reed writes that Democrats and liberals have become too fixated on election results rather than aiming for long term goals that address the issues of economic inequality, and that the administrations of Bill Clinton and Barack Obama too often acquiesced to the demands of Wall Street and the right."
---First off, Barack Obama is not a liberal.
If anything he's center-right.
By the way, Hillary Clinton IS NOT A LIBERAL EITHER.
So, if you are indeed thinking that 2016 is going to be the year of Hillary Clinton then fine, but just know and ADMIT to yourself and your friends that you are not voting for a liberal.
And stop hanging your head in shame when the so-called "radioactive" tag is applied.
Librul, libtard, damn liberals, you liberals, stop it, just stop it and stop it now. There is nothing wrong with liberal political philosophy. What's wrong is that liberals have forgotten what they have accomplished and liberals also forget that they do indeed NEED good conservatives as "the loyal opposition."
Conservatives forgot a very long time ago that they too need liberal ideas and good liberals as THEIR loyal opposition.
But first and foremost, liberals have to do away with their self-esteem problem, which is bought and purchased from today's unhinged and extremist right wing as almost a daily nutritional supplement. That's a product of The John Birch Society, also known today as The Tea Party. Are you really buying the crap that they put out? Is there even a shred of legitimacy to this fringe group, or are you ready to accept that the richest families in America have decimated the moderates and bought themselves control of a political party?
Because that's what has happened.
Even the Republican Speaker of the House admits it.
You should, too.
Stop it, stop being defensive, stop feeling guilty, stop feeling second class. If you really do aspire to liberal thought, then learn what liberalism really is all about and, if you're still interested, take up the mantle with pride.
And for God's sake, let's actually ELECT a real liberal.
Bernie Sanders might be a good choice, if paired with a more moderate partner.
Enough with the Clintons AND the Bushes. Barbara Bush even said that she is done with putting Bushes in the White House.
It's time to end the Clinton Dynasty now too before it becomes one.
Stop surrendering, and start coming up with ideas.
We have two years to do it, are you up to the task?
