Liberal Oasis Blogger Publishes New Book
Bill Scher, the blogger at Liberal Oasis has a new book - Wait! Don't Move to Canada: 10 Steps to a Liberal America .
With a foreword by Janeane Garofalo and Sam Seder, the book offers a plan for fighting for sanity, or a plan for fighting for a liberal America.
In a section called, A Quick History of the L-Word, I found this definition of what it means to be a liberal:
"[I]f 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." (emphasis added) -- John F. Kennedy, 9/14/1960
And for those of you who do intend to move to Canada, check out L-girl's blog, We Move to Canada -- which has lots of great resources for those of us who really must move to Canada.
