The republicans that did not vote to renew unemployment benefits because they are mad at Obama, because of Obama Care. November election will see  2 million less votes for them.

Recent studies about class mobility in America reveal some interesting findings on upward mobility- the core principle of the American Dream.  They suggest that one key factor between making that dream a reality or not could just be where you happen to live.

It's not a surprise....  Unfortunately.
While I’m sure many liberals who come across this headline will have some response like “Duh” or “Tell me something I didn’t already know, ” I think it’s time to put hyperbole aside and get real for a moment. Sure, for a while many liberals have called tea party supporters domestic terrorists and have accused …

Martin Luther King famous quote: "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." was written 51 years ago. We made a lot of progress since then, but the same kind of people who jailed MLK in Alabama are still around... committing injustice and outrageously claiming that MLK was "one of them, you know, a Republican." We must debunk that myth.

Just for the record: 149 years ago, a Southern fanatic shot the President of the USA then jumped to the stage, where he raised his knife and shouted "Sic semper tyrannis" (Latin for "Thus always to tyrants," attributed to Brutus at Caesar's assassination and the Virginia state motto), while others said he added, "I have done it, the South is avenged!"
Abraham Lincoln was a liberal. One could make a strong argument that Lincoln is not only the greatest liberal reformer in U.S. history, but in all of secular human history.
Don't think Lincoln was a liberal? Then look at the record: Emancipation Proclamation in 1863

For the trolls who want to say "But he was a Republican!", here's some educational background on how the racist Dixiecrats switched over to the Republican party: http://www.umich.edu/~lawrace/votetour10.htm

+Al Kirkwood It is you, em, sir who is not armed with the facts. I have not seen a single tea party conservative react to this post. I don't expect they will either. Abraham Lincoln was undoubtedly the finest president this country ever and probably will ever have. 
     Every child in this country learns about Abraham Lincoln in grade school then again in high school with much more attention to detail if they are there and paying attention.
     In college again You will learn about him in finer detail and there is no disputing that Abraham Lincoln was our best president and he was without a doubt a liberal as we know them today.
  
     Al, I often see you and +Tre Lucas on various posts stirring the pot in the same way you have done here. Do you think that you are honoring the spirit of Abraham Lincoln? 
     I was once like you, narrow in my political views and not willing to compromise, but I see that nothing is getting done in our country since the wild growth period after world war two and the largest growth of the middle class in America. I would like to see our middle class reinvigorated. I would like to see the poor of our country uplifted, starting with single payer insurance for all, wouldn't it be great to be done with all the crap?

Why? Because Reality Has A Well Known Liberal Bias.. Politics, Culture, Society.
Introduction
Being Liberal - what does it mean to YOU? PROUD to say I'M A LIBERAL! ? - SHARE this page with your friends. We MUST bring back the PRIDE of wearing the LIBERAL badge! The word 'LIBERAL' was stolen from us... Let's reclaim it !

BEING LIBERAL is almost 1 Million strong on Facebook,  (http://facebook.com/beingliberal.org) help us to grow on Google+

"Liberals got women the right to vote. Liberals got African-Americans the right to vote. Liberals created Social Security and lifted millions of elderly people out of poverty. Liberals ended segregation. Liberals passed the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act. Liberals created Medicare. Liberals passed the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act. What did Conservatives do? They opposed them on every one of those things...every one! So when you try to hurl that label at my feet, 'Liberal,' as if it were something to be ashamed of, something dirty, something to run away from, it won't work, Senator, because I will pick up that label and I will wear it as a badge of honor.'
