Liberals need to speak up
To the editor:
I am a liberal. I believe that is not a dirty word. I care about my fellow man and think the government is necessary to provide a huge network of services; police, fire, clean water, clean air and medical insurance for everyone, not just a few. In addition I think the government needs to protect our oceans to keep them clean. I think they need to protect our lands from being defiled. The government is the only thing that has the power to do all that.
That said I want to address my fellow liberals. There are a lot of
untruths being spread right now, half fact, half fiction lies about
everything and everybody. I know liberals are generally laid back, kind
of live and let live people. But now is not the time. The lies being
circulated need to be responded to. Say something, don’t just sit there
and listen when you know what is being said is not true or is based on
half truths or comes straight off the Internet. The folks who have not
made up their minds yet about things need to hear a counter argument.
When they hear silence they tend to believe the lies, so say
something. You are not responsible for how your message is received so
don’t worry over that. Just say something when confronted with half
truths, speak up please
