So proud to be a liberal!

So proud to be a liberal! why?
Human rights- We have standards and believe in treating all right!
Civil rights
freedom and liberty
The right to be who you wish to be in life(trans, gay, etc or what ever)
The right to marry and love who you wish
Believe in science that has cured and helped billions of people
Believe in good infrastructure to drive our cars on
Believe in clean air, water and food. The quality of life has gone up big time because of liberal ideas.
The unions and anti-trust laws built our middle class. Thanks liberals.
Believe in sound economic policies that care about our poor and old alike.

Conservatives are like the taliban...Backwards and dumber then a box full of shit.

Letting people suffer without medical care

Letting people suffer without medical care or without the means to feed themselves is conflicting the happiness and life part of The Declaration of Independence! It is just cold and don't you think you can't find yourself within this situation at some point in your life republicans. We're better then this and you better wake up or you'll find out the hard way.

Not only this but it is unmoral to allow millions to suffer and what does it serve? The private sector has proven to fail every time it's tried in the healthcare industry and no other developed first world nation uses it...None of these nations suffer from the debt from such a fucked up system that's only purpose is to milk the consumer to the point where him or her could lose their entire life savings from a few months of care. This doesn't happen in Canada, doesn't happen in all of western Europe or any other fully developed country that uses single payer! Hundred of billions flushed down the corporate toilet just for them to want more money from you the consumer.

It is not moral or right...It doesn't need to be forced on anyone and I'd be perfectly happy to support a private sector system in parallel as many developed nations also have...But, what the republican party is pushing for is just evil..Something satan would push for for you so called Christians. Maybe you should listen to jesus and consider the reality that one pushed suffering on people while the other wanted to cure. We're not in the 18th century and we shouldn't look the other way when it comes to suffering anymore.
