If you had a 2-bedroom frame house on 1/8 acre with one automobile, one TV and a refrigerator you were considered upper middle class.
I thought most liberal were in the media or were Hollywood stars. Are you an expert on liberals?
Can you tell me the difference between a progressive and liberal? I do not think that you can. You tend to generalize everything.
Have you ever been active in politics? I think you should consider getting active because the reality is starkly different than your imaginations. Are you part of the religious right? You will need to pick your form of Jesus if you really want to play RNC.
I was considering becoming an atheist. I actually believe devoutly in Christ but the problem is I prefer being associated with higher class crowd of hypocrite than the Tea Party Jesus being pimped by the Right.
