In his letter of June 29, Ed Bogusch wonders what it would be like to be a liberal.
Contrary to his assumption, liberals are hardly spongers. The vast majority of them are highly educated and include scientists, academics, lawyers, educators, philanthropists, writers, artists, musicians and actors, as well as many who labor long hours in blue collar jobs to support their families.
A high percentage of those who benefit from government assistance actually reside in the so-called red states and include many voters who helped carry Donald Trump to the White House.
Liberals care deeply about their fellow human beings. They are devoted to the principles set down by that radical group of liberals we call our founding fathers, who created the most liberal laws in an age of monarchs and tyrants, when there was no separation of church and state and a people’s voice in the government was limited or non-existent.

Liberals are dedicated to fighting for human rights, the basic freedoms, and equal justice for all. Try it, Mr. Bogusch, you might become enlightened.
