The Best Quotes About Being Liberal

"Of all the varieties of virtues, liberalism is the most beloved.”
― Aristotle

“I think being a liberal, in the true sense, is being nondoctrinaire, nondogmatic, non-committed to a cause – but examining each case on its merits. Being left of center is another thing; it’s a political position. I think most newspapermen by definition have to be liberal; if they’re not liberal, by my definition of it, then they can hardly be good newspapermen. If they’re preordained dogmatists for a cause, then they can’t be very good journalists; that is, if they carry it into their journalism.”
― Walter Cronkite, Interview with Ron Powers (Chicago Sun Times) for Playboy, 1973”

“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.”
― John F. Kennedy, Profiles in Courage

“As mankind becomes more liberal, they will be more apt to allow that all those who conduct themselves as worthy members of the community are equally entitled to the protections of civil government. I hope ever to see America among the foremost nations of justice and liberality.”
― President George Washington

I fully expect the bible to instantly burn when trump places his hand on it for swearing in.

We are talking about someone who has most likely never turned the page of the book and lives and breathes lies and corruption.

WTF? Trump spokesman: We need to talk about punishing Clinton for trying to influence the electi

Trump spokesman: We need to talk about ‘punishing’ Clinton for ‘trying to influence the election’

Trump’s new press secretary, Sean Spicer, is deflecting questions about the influence of Russian hacking on the 2016 election — arguing instead that people should talk about on “punishing” Hillary Clinton for trying to “influence the election.”
Spicer was asked if President-elect Trump accepts the conclusion of seventeen U.S. intelligence agencies that Russia was responsible for the hacks that sought to damage Clinton’s bid for the presidency.
“Why aren’t we talking about the other influences on the election? Why aren’t we talking about Hillary Clinton getting debate questions ahead of time?” Spicer said in response.
“No one is asking those questions. The fact is that everyone wants to make Donald Trump admit to certain things. When do we talk about the other side, which is what did Hillary Clinton do to influence the election? Is she being punished?”

In an unprecedented event, Northwest Missouri State University wins a 6th NCAA Division 2 title

Northwest Missouri State wins second straight national championship at Children's Mercy Park

For the second straight year, Northwest Missouri State University won the NCAA Division II Football National Championship at Children's Mercy Park. The Bearcats defeated the University of North Alabama 29-3 on Saturday on a cold, snow-filled afternoon in Kansas City, Kansas.

PHOTOS: Browse images from Saturday's championship match
Northwest Missouri entered Saturday's championship game on a 29-game winning streak and with one of the highest scoring offenses in the country. They were held at bay for most of the first half, however, by a stout North Alabama defense and the frigid conditions. It was 13 degrees at kickoff with a -4 windchill.

Adam Dorrel’s side was held at bay for 29 minutes but broke through with 58 seconds left in the second quarter. Jordan Grove took a shovel pass from Randy Schmidt and ran seven yards for the first score of the game. North Alabama answered quickly, though, with a field goal just before halftime.

The weather worsened in the second half as the wind picked up causing the snow to swirl around the stadium. The Bearcats were not to be denied, however, and put in a dominant second half performance. Phil Jackson ran for two scores as Northwest Missouri scored 22 unanswered points to cap the game.

Huffington Post An Open Letter To Mr. Trump: WTF Is Wrong With You!?

Dear Mr. Trump:

I refer to you as “Mr” because I do not recognize you as my president. Or anyone’s president for that matter. You lost the popular vote by almost 3 million votes, more than any president in United States history. And with the likely help of Russian hacks, oppressive voter ID laws, other acts of voter suppression and election fraud, and an embarrassingly neutered media, you squeaked out a measly 306 electoral votes, placing you in the bottom fifth of all presidents ever.

But in true Trumpian fashion, you’ve boasted of a “massive landslide victory.” Sorry, pal. The only “landslide” was Hillary Clinton’s, as she received more votes than any president in history except for Barack Obama in 2008. One thing’s for sure though: you were right about the election being “rigged.” For you.

Now that we’ve gotten the niceties out of the way, let me ask the most obvious question: what the fuck is wrong with you!? Seriously, do you not give a shit about your legacy, if not for yourself, at least for your kids, grandkids and future generations of Trumps? If your goal is to beat James Buchanan as the worst president in history, well then Mazel Tov, as you’re halfway there and you’ve still got five weeks till inauguration day!

Let’s start with your cabinet picks. You were supposed to drain the swamp, not restock it with self-serving corporate billionaires and other uber-rich insiders and cronies. You’ve appointed a banana-republic-worthy gaggle of unqualified, inexperienced, intellectually un-curious sexists/misogynists, racists, stabbers (ok, just one knifer, Ben Carson), fake-news-spreaders and Russian sympathizers. And your alt-right white nationalist advisor Steve Bannon sits atop this basket of deplorables. This is your idea of populism!?
