Attention all Liberals, Progressives or whatever else you call yourselves nowadays! Ummmm...where y'all been?
I am interested in your Freedom of Speech!
In the past I have noticed a robust participation of liberals and other political minorities in the comment sections of Hubbers who write from a conservative perspective. Since the rollout of the Affordable Care Act however I have also noticed a stark difference in that participation...like it is practically non-existent.
I thought this was probably because since the roll out there has been tremendous publicity surrounding it and President Obama's 37+ episodes of the same mis-spoken words. I am concerned that liberals feel that they cannot express their opinions anymore about President Obama or his signature healthcare plan without fear of being pummeled by conservatives with remarks like "I told you so," etc.
But after thinking about it I came to the conclusion that I really don't know that and shouldn't assume anything without hearing the other side's opinion.

So I am asking YOU LIBERALS to NOW voice your opinions about the Obama administration and the Affordable Care act in a protected comment forum on this hub page. I will not approve any comments from conservatives or comments that are critical of liberals, liberalism or the progressive movement. I just want to give you a forum in which you can have your say the way you see it without any criticism and as long as the comments are on topic (Obama's administration and the Affordable Care Act or political persuasions in general) and from liberals (or any other political persuasion besides Republican or conservative) I will not delete them.
If you have a problem getting started I have posted a couple videos that may offer you food for thought. You can agree or disagree with what is in the videos but I strongly encourage your participation for lack of it can only lead me (and others) to conclude that as liberals (or whatever your political persuasion) who once had a lot of good things to say about President Obama's administration, his policies and the ACA you no longer have the courage of your convictions (maybe due to the recent developments) or perhaps you never really did.
Have you changed your mind about anything or just disinterested? If Obamacare fails in the end does it mean a setback for liberalism? Some say you can't spell liberalism without the word lies...is that true or are conservatives the liars? Or is lying just an integral part of all politics on both sides
So have at it liberals, make your case. No one will challenge you and perhaps you will challenge some readers by what you have to say! I've kept my words under 500 so you have all the say from here.
Conservatives and the like, respond if you wish but I may not approve your comments.:-)
