Liberal is of Freedom

Hooray! I am not alone in refusing to sit still while the conservatives both label and define me. Jeff Jarvis over at Buzzmachine is standing up loud and proud in not justing admitting, but celebrating, being liberal.

I'm with him.

The word has a definition, and 'they', didn't come up with it. It shares its Latin root, liber, with liberty. Liber means free. Liberal is suitable for a free person, and that suits me.

Let's continue to be us, folks. If you are defensive enough to want to be called a progressive, then let the defense stop there. Hold on to those liberal values.

They're real, and they're true.
