It's OK to be liberal

The Republican Noise Machine constantly attacks John Kerry as a Massachusetts liberal. Although they are fond of history, they seem to forgot that it was a bunch of Massachusetts liberals that founded this country. The Boston Tea Party, the midnight ride of Paul Revere, and other brave Massachusetts liberals founded this country.

Being liberal means keeping an open mind. Changing your mind based on new information or evidence is not in fact, flip-flopping, but rational thought. Being decisive is only good if you are also right, and being consistent doesn't make up for being wrong.
