Left or Liberal?

Tell the average American you’re a liberal and they’ll assume you’re on the political left. Yet, leftists and liberals hold very different positions on key issues. In this video, Dennis Prager explains how the tenets of liberalism – like a belief in capitalism and free speech – have more in common with conservatism than with the identity politics and racial resentment preached by the left.

    I think a classic liberal would be called a libertarian today. They certainly didn’t believe in an all-encompassing state.

    Robert,

    Once more, I darken your door. This time to just mention just how much it means to me, a gentile, to be able to read some of your writings, and to view some of your pictures that you post and to see a bit of what makes you tick. And what tickles you, what touches your heart. And what do you know, the same things touch me as well. Somehow I am not surprised. We are all created in the image of the same G-d, after all. With the same attributes.
    That you are of a mind to find these fantastic pictures, probably many from your own collection, and post them here for all of us to enjoy, I have to say, a hearty thank you. What treat to get to see some of the stars of yesteryear, caught with their guard down, not trying to stay in character, but being relaxed and just being themselves.
    I trust that things are going well for your family. Unfortunately, I have been dealing with my wife’s breast cancer and a fall which broke a bone in her back, and so have just not been able to get her to check up on you as I usually do. But I pray that all is well.
    My wife is doing well, her body is cancer free, she only had to have a lumpectomy, of which we were grateful, and we are planning a small trip from Michigan to Branson MO, in the fall, to celebrate her getting through the year long treatment that was required.
    Doctors are doing wonderful things today with cancer treatment, but they take patients almost to the point of death in order to then bring them back to normal health. If I were to get ill, I would have to step back and consider very carefully, before embarking on such a path. In the end, I suspect that I would follow that route, but not without considering my options.
    I didn’t mean to bring up such sad memories, I just wanted to speak of my wife’s courage. And to thank you for the effort you put into this blog. Sometimes, it is just the lift that I need. Thank you, and please be blessed by the eternal G-d. Shalom tim
