150 Achievements Of Liberalism That Conservatives Seek To Destroy


By Stephen D. Foster Jr
May 12, 2012

According to virtually any conservative today, the government has been just one big liberal establishment. The current extremists that own and operate the GOP are hell bent on destroying anything and everything that even has a hint of liberalism or progressivism in it, even if Republicans helped pass it. So what would America be like without liberals and progressives? Here is a list of programs, legislation, and achievements that we would not have if extreme right wingers had their way. Some items on this list were indeed passed or created by Republicans, but that doesn’t make them conservative achievements. It only means that at one time, Republicans favored liberalism and progressivism or that they were willing to work with Democrats for the common good.

1. The 40-hour work week.
2. Weekends
3. Vacations
4. Women’s Voting Rights
5. The Civil Rights Act of 1964
6. The right of people of all colors to use schools and facilities.
7. Public schools.
8. Child-labor laws.
9. The right to unionize
10. Health care benefits
11. National Parks
12. National Forests
13. Interstate Highway System
14. GI Bill
15. Labor Laws/Worker’s Rights
16. Marshall Plan
17. FDA
18. Direct election of Senators by the people.
19. Occupational Safety and Health Administration, Workplace safety laws
20. Social Security

full list here:

HELLO, anniefey...good to see you and THANKS for the list and the link to the rest of the information. EXCELLENT reasons for VOTING, especially this year! Of course, I can't think of any reason not to vote any year, but the Republicans are determined to defeat the president at all costs.

I've copied the link and sent it to all of my political friends. Thanks again, and Please post here more often. You're always giving us good information.

I just can't stand the thought of us returning to the Bush policies, reliving the Bush era, and the Bush failures. That's one nightmare I never want to experience again.
