1. I am a #Democrat, a #Liberal, a #Progressive. I BELIEVE we can be a more perfect union through justice and equality. I work to raise the voices of the oppressed and provide equal opportunities for the disenfranchised. This ethic is the core of the party.
2. When others ridicule us for being too 'politically correct', calling us 'libtards', 'snowflakes', deriding us over 'safe spaces', it matters little to me because I'm secure in the pragmatic foundation that informs our positions and policies.
3. But, like anyone else, if we allow ourselves to be manipulated, we will stray from this pragmatism and lose our way in reactionary responses unfettered by context or logic, weakening our stance by becoming a caricature designed by our opposition.
