Neither are liberals

I keep seeing ads on TV with Doctors Murphy and Perry each accusing the other of being liberal.
Not to worry, neither are even close to being liberal. Neither will be the least bit concerned for the poor, the elderly, the sick, the environment or the country’s democratic principles.
Both will try to prevent affordable healthcare insurance. Both have promised to support Trump as he gives tax cuts to the wealthy, sells our national parks to the highest bidder and eliminates clean air and water rules. Both will support cuts to Social Security and Medicare, help destroy public education and help destroy our government infrastructure. Both will look away as government officials take children away from their parents and lock them in cages. Both will pass legislation to further voter suppression. Both will vote to allow avowed fascists on the Supreme Court. They’ll support their leader as he insults our democratic allies and cozies up to murderous dictators. Both will smile as he lies to us on a daily basis.
No, neither are even close to being liberal. You’ll get what you vote for either way.
