America's Liberal Soul

The word “liberal” is a nasty word for many people, especially in the south. That’s unfortunate because no other word expresses the soul of America as well as the word “liberal”, which basically means free and generous.

When Thomas Jefferson penned the Declaration of Independence, he was driven by liberal ideas such as liberty, freedom and equality…elevating basic human rights above the rights of kings, dictators and wealth.
