6. Here's the thing


They keep calling Warren a "liberal" it seems to me as a way to discredit her.

I believe that due to right wing efforts that the term liberal is perceived a different way than Warren is.

The term liberal is perceived to be giving minorities special favors and attempting to tell people what to do among a lot of the public thanks to 20,25 years of right wing talking heads.

However the economic ideology of Warren, if a lot of the voting public looks beyond the label, easily cuts across party lines because I have heard MANY republicans or dems that vote GOP voice the very same opinions as she does.

I think with the Warren wing of the party on the ascendency that we all have to be very careful to make sure that the main message, of equality an fairness for the average working American is out front and do not let the right and the media box us in the publics mind as some right wing stereotype, because this is a winning message for democrats.
