Absolutely, I am very concerned about the environment. I believe in global warming and that the earth is round, etc.

I'm also watching closely in regards to the next Supreme Court Judge. So much at stake.

Glad to have you with us. I share your concerns and would add climate change and all things ecological.

Right now is the time to speak out on who will nominate the next Supreme Court Judge. We must all support President Obama in this action.

Hi, new to the team. I've been politically active since high school when I helped start a gay-straight alliance at my school and then helped petition for transgender rights at my college. Besides LGBTQ rights, I'm concerned about the economy and worry about what a republican president would do to our country. I'm concerned about the war on women. I'm also worried about the fading line between religion and politics. I'm a Christian and I realize the importance of the separation of Church and State. The fate of our country and the world are everything to me.

(To streamline things, I'm using pretty much the same intro post for any group I join, so if you've seen me elsewhere, that's why this might sound familiar. I won't be doing this with any other posts.)

Hello! I just joined SP yesterday. Like I'm sure most of you have, I've been battling my weight nearly my entire life (I can't remember their being a time before my mom started putting me on diets) and I've not done well.

I'm just over 50, and have been married to a wonderful man for the last 20 of those years. When we were younger, we'd independently come to the realization that each of us would be a lousy parent, so after we got married we adopted dogs instead. It turned out to be good thing, given my condition, and the dogs give me so many smiles and help keep me from feeling too lonely while hubby is off at work. I read a LOT, and most recently have been getting into paranormal stories And i love music - especially Rush and Pink Floyd. I get a kick out of live-action superhero movies &a TV shows, watching competitive cooking shows (even though I'm a VERY picky eater and wouldn't touch 99% of what gets made :D Oh, I also have a great interest in Norse Lore and Legends.

Anyway,. I just wanted to say "hi" and let y'all know I'm here :)

I am new here. When I joined Spark People I thought it would be the ideal place to focus on diet and exercise and fitness, but I have always been ineluctably drawn toward liberal politics. Seeing that the Conservative group is about twice as big as this group, I want to join you.

Currently a big fan of Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. Major concern is income inequality. Disappointed that Obama and Hillary are both in bed with Wall Street banksters.

One of my Facebook friends posted a meme suggesting a Ted Cruz/Sarah Palin ticket for 2016 (yes, we know he's not eligible, but facts never stopped him before). We all hope they try it -- Hillary would breeze into the White House.

OMG!!!!!! TED CRUZ is the WORST EXCUSE for a POLITICIAN i have ever seen!
Remember when he BLABBED ON & ON ALL DAY & read a BEDTIME STORY to his kid?
WHAT A LUNATIC!

The FOX news people treat him as if he were a DEITY, in stead of the NUT CASE he is!
What can we expect????? THE "FOX" (so called) NEWS PEOPLE are LUNATICS, too!

This country needs somebody like "HOWARD BEALE" from NETWORK! emoticon

I totally agree Alfbundy! Unfortunately for me, I live in Nassau county, which is about as red as it gets and Fox "news" is the preferred news channel. Enough said.

I really thought Charlie Crist was ideal because he had been on the GOP side and wasn't afraid to show he had the guts to crossover.

When I read a recent article regarding exit polls and that most of the voters who did show up admitted they didn't like Republicans, it makes me wonder what the point to all of this is. If people are voting for candidates they don't even like then how do they expect to see any improvements? And what about the fact that there have been improvements since 2009?

Sigh. Whatever the case, I'm really disgusted with the Dem voters who couldn't bother to show support for the president. Thanks to them, we'll all be jerked around by the likes of McConnell, Cruz, et al.

Hello Everyone

I'm new to this team, but not to SP...and certainly not new regarding politics lol.

I'm still smarting from the results of Tuesday's election. I always go into it with high hopes, but it's mid-terms and that doesn't usually mean good things for the Dems.

Considering that less than 48% of Americans vote, it would appear apathy is the favorite past-time for most of the country. This makes my head hurt.

The only thing that's kept my head up is the idea that the GOP can't hide anymore. Like Bernie Sanders and Robert Reich have commented recently, Republicans are now on the hot seat. If they continue their obstructionist tactics then 2016 should bode well for the Dems.

I just hate that my state re-elected a renowned Tea party crook (Rick Scott) and we get to endure his B.S. for another term. Sigh.

Yes, this is a long rant, but I've been doing that on Facebook and Pinterest too....might as well hit them all lol!

I'm happy I joined this team. It'll be nice having some support on the political front for a change.

I'm brand new to this place, and very happy I found you :)

I'm from Norway, currently living in Alabama. As a liberal atheist, I'm basically considered a Satanic Monster by a lot of Americans. I know that's silly, but I've still just gotta keep my head down and not speak my mind pretty much everywhere I go.

I don't have the right to vote, so all I can do is pay taxes and hope that it's spent where it does some good. Getting input from people with a world view more similar to mine, really helps me stay sane.

It's good to be here :)

I don't bleed. I don't bruise. It's always good news. I can't lose!

Hi all. I'm new here too. Glad to find a place to share ideas with like-minded people :) If only it were easier to share ideas with unlike-minded people. We're all so entrenched, but truly I would like to understand the other side. I hope the discussions here are enlightening and encouraging.

I just came across this team and thought it would be a great place to meet people not only working towards a healthier life and facing all the struggles that entails but also dealing with the struggles involved with being a liberal democrat in this country. I look forward to being a part of this team.

Hi I'm Silvia. Still remember the wild days of political discussion on Spark so was happily surprised there was a team or two that survived it. :)

Look forward to reading and sharing opinions about the state of the Union these days.

I have returned from my long self-imposed "real life" exile. So many things that I had to go through, learn from and endure. I am glad to be back and look forward to again enjoying the great liberal/left commentary from my old friends. I've been on Saprk for seven years...WOW!

I'm new to the site as well as this group. I never labeled myself a liberal, most people call me that and when they say it, it is not meant in a good way! I looked the word up, 1) believing that government should be active in supporting social and political change 2) not apposed to new ideas or ways of behaving that are not traditional or widely accepted 3) generous. I though, I can live with that label!

I've sparked for some time, although the "sparkler" was burning pretty low for the past two years. People call me Mary.

I'm new to the group, though, and thinking that we all have a lot to do about this next election. I am concerned about the Koch brothers and their other wealthy friends really working to undo a lot of the stuff that has been done in the past eight years.

I live in Utah, so I have to tell you that every election I end up in a nearby state that has some chance to vote for a Democrat. emoticon It's fun, and I am glad that now I'm retired that I can do that. But it also concerns me that labels count so much. We have a lot of good politicians in my area that lose, only because they're Democrats.

I enjoy the site, but probably will lurk quite a bit.

Hello ~
I like it that this team calls itself LIBERAL right out loud. I'm sort of tired of "Progressive" as a euphemism. I also really like civility as a guiding principle and I try hard to be civil myself. (I did get into a screaming match with a rich person the other day, who was explaining to me how big companies don't really need to pay a living wage to workers because if those people want more money, they can simply become investment bankers or business owners themselves..sigh.. As I said, I try hard.)
Anyhow, nice to find this team!
Maggie

Welcome!

I visited Arizona once and loved it. It breaks my heart what the wing-nuts have done to it. But this WAS the state that gave us the Udall brothers, so maybe there's hope.

Hi, everyone!

I've been active on SP since July 2011, but have only really been focused on the low carb team and a gout team (nope, don't have gout, just helping out a SparkFriend by keeping the team alive). I'm on the FlyLady team too but am so FlyWashed that I rarely pop on there. :)

Just thought I'd wave to all my fellow liberals!

I am new. To this group, not to Spark. Well, I'm back for round 2. I haven't been on Spark in over a year. But hello!

Hi so happy to find this board- joined SP couple weeks ago. Seem to be increasingly surrounded by Romney supporters and need a dose of reality. Thanks for being here!

OMG!!! My husband had T'shirts made reading the SAME THING! We live in FLA. & they have the state outline in RED with a blue "FROWNY" face!
THEN, in 2008 he had NEW shirts made reading: HOORAY! I LIVE IN A BLUE STATE!
These shirts have a BLUE FLA. outline & a BLUE SMILEY FACE!

I hope the state STAYS BLUE, too!

"Hope & pray we don't have to resort to wearing the shirts he had made in 2004: Pray for me... I live in a RED STATE!"

Ha...Do you have one in x-small, perhaps?! emoticon

Hi, everyone! emoticon I'm new to the team.

While I love my area (it's gorgeous) North Idaho, I *hate* the fact that it is so very RED blood. It's embarrassing!! emoticon But, luckily, in my northern area, there are a lot more Blue people...they just kinda keep it to themselves! emoticon

Here's my story and it is rather amusing....

Several years ago, in 2006, my Hubby, Son, and I went in to cast our votes for my Son's lawyer, as she was running to become a Judge. We get up to the table to register and the lady asked us what Party we want to be? Since none of us *had* any clue what it meant (and I thought we *had* to vote according to what this lawyer lady was) I uttered "I guess Republican??" emoticon
So, anyway...that's how our political adventure began! emoticon Needless to say, when 2008 rolled around, us 3 *Republican's* cast our votes Democrat, right down the entire ballot! emoticon

Now, here we are..it's 2012 and just days away to the election. Our family had changed residences (we purchased a house) so we knew we were gonna have to re-register. So, today, Hubby & I drove into town, and PROUDLY cast our two votes for Obama!! But, the other part of feeling Proud, came when we BOTH changed our party from Republican to Democrat!! emoticon Our Son had to work, but he'll be doing the same thing, in the next few days!

So we not only gave our support towards our wonderful President, but as a family, we have helped this deep Red State to become a slight shade Pinker!!!! emoticon

**Oh, and we made sure to vote BLUE straight down the ballots, this time, too!**

Welcome! Don't feel bad. I live in one of the bluest states in the Union (California), which still has a weird propensity for electing Republican governors. I am startled and thrilled to see that Virginia is leaning toward President Obama this year!

Hello from VA. What a turn of events, the polls show us tilting blue for presidential and senate races. Of course the state house is full of a bunch of tea bag loons.

Hi! I'm Gayle. 72 and a thinking progressive. I work in an aging population and only can talk to one or two of our residents about the horrible state of things. Just discovered this group. I keep stirring things up with my blogs! All I'm trying to do is expose the truth. Some people believe that their BELIEFS are the truth. But only facts merit that label. They don't like me pointing that out. Too bad! Glad to be here.
Gayle

What you put your focus on you will get.
Think of what you DON'T want and you'll get more of it.
Think only of what you DO want and that's what will come!
