Careful there, Ed Bogusch, lest people should think of your pronouncements (“Baby boomer wonders what it’s like being a liberal Democrat,” June 29) as those of an ignoramus conservative Republican.
I am indeed a Democrat. I am also a foreigner. By your logic, I must be also a murderer and a rapist.
I do not write to change your mind — on the contrary, I am sure you are well indoctrinated and entrenched in your beliefs. I write instead to reassure you that as a liberal, while far from “sponging off my fellow citizens,” I consider it more than fair to pay my fair share of taxes, and that I find it very brotherly and humane to assist those in need. After all, the, rich, the conservatives, the Republicans, don’t seem to care at all about those trampled by adversity.
