Kennedy: I'm Proud I'm a Liberal

When someone calls you a "lib", smile and be proud!   



Remember this great quote by John F. Kennedy when he accepted the nomination of the Liberal Party in New York in 1960:
If by a "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 a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal." Acceptance of the New York Liberal Party nomination (14 September 1960)

  1. And I love my Kennedy's. John and Bobby have a treasure trove of quotes. The sixties and seventies were blessed with great leaders and orators.
