Am I Still A Liberal?

I'm in my 50's and have voted democratic all my life. I have read liberal publications and books for the past 30 years. i can't listen to a right wing show for more than 5 minutes w/o changing the channel. Yet, my experience on another liberal radio show message board and being banned now makes me question whether liberalism has morphed into something I can't follow anymore.

Axelrod calls the Koch brothers "contract killers"

The Obama campaign criticises Romney for not repudiating a woman who uses "treasonous" in alluding to President Obama yet not a peep when Axelrod calls private citizens "contract killers". Quid pro quo?

Major liberal donors to pour $100 million+ into the election for Democrats

Millionaires and billionaires like the Koch brothers and Karl Rove have already pledged $500 million to defeating Democrats this election cycle – but now rich people on the Left are getting into the money game too.

Fox’s Geraldo Rivera To Cable News: Stop Using The Phrase ‘Illegal Aliens’

In a column posted on fox News Laino, Geraldo Rivera lambasts his cable news colleagues for their repeated use of the term “illegal aliens” when describing undocumented immigrants from Latin America. “Cable news and talk radio are making a killing demonizing undocumented immigrants,” he begins the column.

Rocky Anderson for President?

I heard an interview with him today on NPR Seattle (KUOW) and I like what I heard. I went home and have been looking over his web site and have watched one of the videos and he sounds very progressive. He was a democrat but is fed up with the corporate dominance of both parties.

From Health Care for America Now : Tell WellPoint to Stop Using Healthcare Dollars for Extremist Politics‏

I received the following email today from Will O'Neill of Health Care for America Now asking for help in getting Wellpoint to stop using health insurance premium dollars to fund right wing political causes. Wellpoint has apparently been involved with ALEC, The Chamber of Commerce, and the Koch brothers (what a trio !) in opposing the Affordable Health Care act ("Obamacare"), and in the anti-collective bargaining fights at the state level in Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio, and other states.

Tell the SEC: Don’t let corporations hide their political spending...a message from the League of Conservation Voters

I received the following email today from Mike Palamuso of the League of Conservation Voters asking for help in getting the SEC to issue rules requiring corporations to disclose political spending. This is an angle on the Citizens United decision that is not often addressed, which is how the decision allows corporations to secretly lobby politicians on issues that end up negatively affecting our environment :
