Republicans have tried to turn "liberal" into a bad word. Well, liberals ended the slavery in this country. A liberal republican president ended the slavery. What happened to them? They got run out of Republican Party. What did liberals do that was so offensive to the liberal party? I'll tell you what they did... 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 the 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 every single one of those things... So, when you try to hurl that label at my feet, "liberal" as if would something to be ashamed of, something dirty, something to run away from —it won't work. I'll pick up that label and I will wear it as a badge of honor!
