About Me

I think a lot of people get stuck in a certain mindset, they won't allow themselves to think outside of their party affiliation. I try not to do that, I'm all about what's fair, what's right and what's just. Liberals have to make it known that we are not the "anything goes" crowd. Yes, we believe in family and some of us even believe in God. We also believe in common decency and human rights for all people. Some of us believe that parents should have a say in the lives of their underage children. The perception of liberals has been twisted and distorted for far too long. Which is why those on the right use the term "liberal" like it's a four letter word. My mother is the type of liberal I would like to be. A God loving, family values, Pro choice, Pro-America, liberal.

Mitt wanted to know if we're better off than we were four years ago, ask..



The families of our troops who came home from Iraq.

Ask the parents of sick children with pre-existing conditions who now have coverage and young people who can stay on their parents insurance until age 26, because of the Affordable Care Act.

Ask Gay and Lesbian Americans, who can now serve their country proudly and openly, because DADT was tossed out.

Ask the children who were born in America, but their parents are illegal immigrants. Since they no longer have to live in fear of being deported.

Ask the families of the victims of 9-11. Since Bin Laden is no longer among the living.

Ask women who weren't getting equal pay for equal work, Since the first bill President Obama signed into law was the Fair Pay Act.

Ask anyone who has traveled outside the United States, since Obama was elected America's image has improved.


The economy is moving at a snails-pace, but the Republican Congress has rejected every proposal and every idea that the President has presented them to get the economy moving. It took eight years to get us into this mess and it may take eight years to get us out. There isn't any difference between Mitt's economic & foreign policies and the Bush administrations.

If Bush deserved two terms, Obama definitely deserves another term.

Obama/Biden 2012!

Today I switched parties..

I became a Democrat. For the last 28 years I was a registered Independent. Which means I used to get robo calls and other political materials from both parties. I realize that I'll never agree 100 percent with either party, BUT the republican party has moved so far to the right, there's no way I'd ever vote for a republican. All of the moderates have been run out of the party, and I don't see them making a comeback any time soon. It feels kind of weird to finally say... that I'm a liberal Democrat.. Actually, I'm a proud liberal Democrat.

My 14-year-old created this Ryan/ Romney meme...
