Yes, I’m a Liberal
Many people would describe me as “an old white man.” How can that be? I may be 83 but I am a liberal. Old white men aren’t supposed to be liberals.
But, I must be a liberal because:
I am a strong supporter of FDR’s four freedoms of: Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Worship, Freedom from Want, and Freedom from Fear.
I am for comprehensive, quality health and mental care for everyone living in America.
I am for reducing America military by at least half, especially America’s colonial bases.
I am a supporter for outlawing all pistols and semi-automatic weapons.
I am for America leading in developing carbon-free, clean energy.
I support Black Lives Matter.
I am for rent/mortgage housing subsidies for housing costs exceeding 30% of family income.
I support free public college education for all.
I am for demilitarizing police and transferring most policing duties (except for violent crimes) to community-based policing.
I am for an overhaul of the criminal justice system to make it more fair and much less racist.
I am for the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Act.
I am a never-watcher of FOX News.
I am for resoundingly — humiliatingly — defeating Donald Trump in this year’s election.
I may be 83 but I feel and act 43.
