The liberal mind in America is a powerful voice that has spoken loud enough that our government has now reflected that voice. A liberal mind in American politics means you are open to new ways of solving problems and dealing with issues. We live in a fast paced world with many ways of instant communication and incredible technology that is evolving on a daily basis. It would seem very foolish to not have a liberal mind in today’s world. The liberal mind of America believes in civil rights, equal opportunity and freedom. “Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” is what we as Americans still want so not much has changed since the beginning of America in that regard.
It is interesting to think that most Americans have always had a liberal mind, but until recently people had a liberal mind in a conservative country. Up until the 1960s, liberalism was just a hope or a dream for many Americans. The democrats, or liberals now have the majority in the House of Representatives and the Senate and also control the White House. This is a new and exciting time for American politics. Conservative politics will not work well in a liberal world like the one we live in.
Now in a time where we are all equal in terms of the law, the liberal mind can be used and exercised. Our founding fathers had the liberal minds that we Americans in 2010 constantly try to duplicate. We now have the first African-American president in our nation’s history. We as a country cannot forget the importance of this. Look at how African-Americans were treated as little as 40 to 50 years ago. This is an incredible accomplishment that will be in the history books that our kids and our kid’s kids will learn from and it just happened! This is an exciting time for America and the world. It will be the liberal minds of today that get us to the brighter future of tomorrow. Liberal minds across the world are the reason we have achieved the peace we have today. However, we cannot let our success at this point blind us of the troubles we still face as a country. There is still hate, pain and suffering. There are American citizens that cannot afford health care, there is plenty of racism in this country and there are many citizens that sleep on the streets due to no fault of their own. It will be the powerful liberal mind of our president and politicians as well as the liberal spirit of the American people that will help us overcome our problems.
Anything is possible and we all have the passion to succeed. However, for some that passion is a day dream and are too lazy to make our dreams come true. In an age where anything and everything is right at our finger tips, the current generation feels they deserve something for nothing. Parents and especially grandparents of this generation worked hard in order to get what they wanted. Somehow the great technology of today affected the energy and motivation of the youth. We must not let the convenience of technology affect the beauty of the American liberal mind.
