Imagine our world without a Bill of Rights, free speech, secular government, the
end of slavery, trial by jury, child labor laws, public education, women’s right
to vote, social security, Medicare, the Peace Corps, civil rights, fair economic
trade, marriage equality, fair labor standards, or stem cell research. These are
but a few accomplishments which can be attributed to liberal ideals. Would you be
willing to lose any one of these? If not, then you are a liberal.
