This is based on a older article but its still true today as it was the day it was posted. The term liberal is meant to be a insult thrown around by the right wing but lets look at this list and decide if liberal is such a bad thing.


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

150 Achievements of Liberals.....

I wouldn't mind seeing a list of what conservatives have achieved for the betterment of us all.

Are all 150 of those things won without bi-partisan support?

Or are we just listing accomplishments by who was in power when the legislation was passed.

Either way, seems a bit intellectually dishonest don't you think?

It would be far more interesting to see a list of accomplishments that Liberals had with overwhelming opposition from Conservatives.

ETA From your source:


Some items on this list were indeed passed or created by Republicans, but that doesn’t make them conservative achievements.


Now that's pathetic. Sorry to say, and I"m not a classical liberal or conservative, but come on.

as a truly original "old school" conservative, i object to the use of fire. in the wrong hands it can cause big trouble... we should have never left the trees. new ideas are bad ideas. let nothing ever change.

oh and PS, how come your laws dont match up with my religion? it is CLEARLY the only good one...

That's what they rely on....Dishonesty

I just don't get how these labels do anything but divide.

To claim anybody in DC has done anything except make themselves rich.

Is a joke....Really, OP is pulling our leg. Nobody could believe this list.

Considering the source even admits it's lying because some of those were put in place by Republican Presidents or by Republican Majorities with Democratic opposition, yeah..I'd say it's dishonest as hell.

Also Universal Healthcare was ALWAYS a conservative idea until Obama started talking about it.

ACA is almost the same as Romney Care and the plan that Gingrinch put forth in the 90's.

Nope, see #23, they already took credit for that..

Although I didn't know that signing a cheque made you an inventor.

The Liberals won WW2 ?

That's a good one.

I have a couple of dead family members that might disagree.

But, they are not here. They are dead.

Why ? They were fighting for your Right to post this disrespectful list.

I don't see those as liberal or conservative. Conservatives just like to move slower and think things through before jumping off a cliff. Now Liberals want change and jump without looking if they have a parachute.

Some liberal things that I do not agree with are fracking at the extent they are doing it. That is not a conservative thing to do. Now there is also greed tied to some conservatives. so lots of conservatives are traitors to their philosophy.

Using computers to the extent they are is a liberal thing, when in fact running a society on computers that can be hacked easily is not a good idea. It is the liberals ideas to jump then fix the messups later that are the problem. Like Obamacare. It is a mess. Having socialized medicine would be lots better. Now, a doctor who likes to help people will be satisfied with less money and less overall costs. The doctors who want to be millionaires quickly are not for the best interest of the patient. Liberal tends to try to get professionals more money, not exactly keep checking if illnesses are being cured.

I do not consider myself as either of these, I am just a man...or a mouse. I think a fair pay for a fair job is adequate. Liberals are dividing our country by actually increasing the difference between the people's wages. Difference based on education, not experience or willingness to work hard and efficiently.

We NEED conservatives to moderate the Liberals or this country will flop.

After the stock market crashed in 29 there was a republican in the white house and America didn't elect another republican for president for 2 decades, so it was dems in control before during and after ww2 and they were liberals.

I agree with you generally its a political mudpiece of work, but give me a conservative list of what they have done for us...or we can debate this list line by line and see how accurate it really is...
