Expect This of Me

So, I am a liberal, and you should expect this of me To be one who looks forward with a new approach, Thinking outside of the box, moving progressively. One inclined to play the game, seldom ever to coach, I check out the statements from the various media To be one who looks forward with a novel approach You can expect me to come up with a new idea, My opinions are many and open to expression I check out the statements from the various media. I am quick to make a most thoughtful confession I will always stand up for the underdog, the victim, My opinions are many and open to expression Let’s fix it if something’s wrong with the system I cannot wallow in criticism without any solution, I will always stand up for the underdog, the victim I’m a tree-hugger and an enemy of rank pollution So, I am a liberal, and you should expect this of me I cannot wallow in criticism without any solution, Thinking outside of the box, moving progressively.

Thank you, Virginia. I never expect everyone to agree with my opinions, but I certainly do enjoy it when someone does. Your affirmative comment warmed my heart.

lol I am a tree hugger, who doesn't follow politics, kind of naive when it comes to world issues, but I do love a good chat about spirituality , and mystical things. Nice write Milton,

I hear you, Mystic Rose Rose, and appreciate you. I don't follow politics as closely as I once did. I feel like it's time I leave that crap to the next generation. I'm too old to do much to solve problems, so I'll have to leave them to my children and grandchildren. Thanks!

I'm a tree hugger and enemy of rank pollution. I cannot wallow in criticism without solution. Oh ME TOO! See you don't have to be a liberal to feel like that. Although my husband says I am one. Love this Milton. Good stuff. God Bless, JB

Nothing in the world wrong with being a liberal, despite the fact "liberal" is something of a dirty word among some. I would take what your husband says as a compliment, Judy. It's a good thing to be a liberal! What is he?
