6. I certainly agree with you on that

In recent years, we've often been reduced to voting for centrists, who are running as Democrats, since those are the most "liberal" choices we have. It used to be said the "liberal" had a negative connotation, but we had more liberal candidates then than we do today. I think the pendulum has swung in that more of us are proudly self-proclaimed liberals, but there are fewer liberals running.

Compared to many of today's candidates, even some who ran as Republicans would be considered liberal. I realize now that my parents were liberal Republicans. They don't seem to exist anymore.
