Who said it?
Just had this famous quote brought once more to my attention. It's a shame it wasn't quoted more often while the right was perverting the term to the point where politicians wouldn't be caught dead accepting the label.
Let's hope that era of spinelessness is over.
What flaming far-left radical said this?
If by "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 "Liberal", then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal".
