    "What Have Liberals and Democrats Ever Done For Us?

    The credit for this goes to Username. He posted it in the Are Liberals the Enemy thread but frankly, I thought it deserved it's own space.

    Hey Username, nice to see you back.

    If you listen to Republicans or even the media, it goes without saying that the Democrats have no platform. No goals. No plans for the future other than hating President Bush. Now, hating President Bush takes a lot of time because there is a lot to hate.

    However, our leaders in Congress are putting the finishing touches on a unified campaign strategy as we speak. Soon enough the world will learn the Democratic goals for the future.

    And of course we have discussed what those goals should be. We have also discussed what Progressives today want. And we have learned about Progressives past and their accomplishments.

    But I thought it would be helpful to put in list form all of the accomplishments and achievements and victories of Progressives, Liberals and Democrats over the last century.

    * Public Broadcasting

    * Supporting the establishment of Israel

    * The United Nations

    * NATO

    I am sure I am missing something. Feel free to add to the list. But it goes without saying, every single leap forward over the last century has been the result of Democratic, Liberal and Progressive policies, positions and goals. Every step backward is most assuredly the result of Republican and Conservative policies, positions and goals.

    So yes, everyone, the Republicans are right. The Democrats have no plans for the future and have done nothing in the past, aside from protecting people from pollution, racial discrimination, barriers to the handicapped, dangerous products, poisonous food, bank failure, hazardous workplaces, overwork, unemployment, handguns, extreme poverty, hunger, and deadly diseases; and aside from providing public education, money for college, balanced budgets, the right to vote, a decent retirement, electricity, the Internet, time off for family, access to government and credit records, and the best examples of peace and diplomacy in our time.

    What have the liberals ever done for us?

    Everything."

    Re: "What Have Liberals and Democrats Ever Done For Us?

    The DEm's, considering their humanity, have their short-comings, as all
    people trying to get things done. However, all things considered, they
    seem to truly strive to conduct government FOR AND BY THE PEOPLE
    OF AMERICA.

    This means the appropriate application and exercising of the Constitution and the Bill Of Rights in governing the nation.

    That means as well , NOT exclusively for the wealthy and privileged class and
    the military/industrial complex.
