Owns label 

 

It puzzles me why Mr. Triplett feels it necessary to point out that I must be or certainly am a liberal in his recent letters. I'll wear that badge proudly if it means I am for equal pay for women, national healthcare for all citizens, equal rights for people of the LGBT community, sensible gun control, sensible immigration policies, having the rich pay their fair share (eliminating the cap on social security tax, etc), increasing the minimum wage so that people who work full time hours don't have to access the welfare system just to be able to eat, looking into the justice system to make sure the minorities are not being treated differently, affordable college tuition, etc. In other words taking care of people -- all people and not just the 1 percent.  

 

I have my opinions and he has his. I'll just leave it at that.
