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."

Thoughtcrimes are the issue in this post at the Donkey. The Bush administration is getting more open about its refusal to allow the first amendment rights of the opposition. This is tatamount to a dictatorship. Read it and weep.
