Liberals believe in moral choices

Liberals like free enterprise. We want everyone to earn as much money as they can. We don't hate corporations. Most of us know if it were not for corporations like General Electric, General Motors and General Dynamics, we might be speaking German today.

Corporations' first priority is to make money for its employees, CEOs and stockholders; nothing wrong with that. But when a corporation manufactures nothing and doesn't add value to anything and makes lots of money on the backs of average Americans, I question its legitimacy.

Health insurance corporations only make money by collecting premiums from you and paying doctors and hospitals as little as possible. The rest is profit. Does anyone else see a problem?

Liberals believe everyone should have health care. Everyone who works hard should be paid a living wage. Children should not go to bed hungry because we've cut food stamps. Children brought into this country illegally through no fault of their own should have a path to citizenship. Everyone should pass a background check if they want to own a gun. Our children coming out of college shouldn't owe $60,000 or more for their education. Everyone should marry whomever they love.

A 14-year-old girl who has been raped shouldn't be forced to have her baby. It's a child having a child. A person should be able to pray wherever they want, but not be subjected to prayer to a God you don't believe in, especially in a government building.

As for Liberal morality, I believe Jesus said we are our brothers' keepers. Stay out of the judging business and leave it up to the Lord.
