Liberals are here to save everyone

I am very tired of seeing the word "liberal" used as a term of opprobrium. Most of us are not the fuzzy-minded, knee-jerk-reacting people you think we are. Instead, we are the people who are trying to save you from yourselves. We are trying to prevent your daughters dying from illegal abortions. We are trying to prevent unwanted children from living unloved lives and turning to crime.
We want universal health coverage to prevent you from dying because you could not afford to go to doctors. We do not want you to have to share prescriptions, split pills or do without medication.
We want America to do the right thing by her people, as other developed countries do. What is so bad about this?
