    JFK said:

    "...if by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal."..."

    I too am a LIBERAL and PROUD of it

    I wonder if you could explain why Conservatives give more to charity than liberals. Which is cheaper, talk or Liberals?

    He only gives kudos to Kennedy because he was Catholic.

    The last 8 years of his life he took pain-killers, anti-anxiety drugs, stimulants and sleeping pills and hormones. He relied on these drugs for normal functioning and developed a physical dependence. He was an addict.
