Lately the term “liberal” has been bantered around in a negative manner. Let’s examine the record.
These are just a few of the accomplishments those big bad liberals have brought to fruition:
Women’s right to vote 1920-present, bank deposit insurance 1930-present, labor laws 1930-present, end of child labor, 40-hour work week, workplace safety, overtime pay — all passed by those bad liberals and fought tooth-and-nail by conservatives.
Also the GI Bill and the Marshall Plan, which rebuilt Europe and was the principal reason communism was halted and eventually defeated.
Plus environmental laws 1970s-to present, food safety laws, workplace safety laws, Social Security, the space program, the Tennessee Valley Authority, universal public education, the National Weather Service, public universities, the earned income credit, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Family and Medical Leave Act, Americans with disabilities protection, the Consumer Protection Agency and the Interstate highway system proposed and started by Franklin Roosevelt and carried through by Dwight Eisenhower.
You know, the very things we never need and passed by those big bad liberals.
