Why are you a Progressive? my short story

I will make this as short as possible. I read full replies and hope you will too.
I am 60 years old, I was raised to treat ALL like me. And I have.

14 years ago I met a woman after my divorce who cemented my thoughts. She didn't let me see her hcp daughter first because she told me later,, "Im in R country."

I met her daughter who took over my life. I have finally made her Mother believe that you stand up for beliefs no matter where you live. I left that visit and went back to my single apt. And I questioned my belief. Alot, Could I accept this girl?

I will tell you TODAY and every day, I am thankful I was raised to have the belief brought in me to make the decision I made.

I will not post pics here of the fantastic life I have now, if you choose to look at my previous posts of my inspiration and joy of my life, then you can search my past posts and pictures on here. I have worked in the hcp field for the last 7 years,, I am retired now because those " uppers" I worked for in this field did not agree with my thinking on how to care for "our" individuals. They were looking at , where are the $$,, even the non profit I worked for.

So now I am free to be an activist, a Democrat , truly, above all , I can be a PERSON now,,, with feelings. I read today that kids may have died away from their parents. OMG ,,how can we do that as humans? Are we seriously to a point where a letter on the ballot after a name means that much? We cannot as a human race be dumbed down that much.

I read today a child died,I repeat for effect, I read today that some children may never see their parents again.

If you chose to look at my past post, you will see my anger,,you will see my rage. I will not settle down, I will not be "correct" as long as children never see their parents again and as long as kids are in cages because of certain political views.
Because,,if I give in to that, My daughter would be in one of HIS CAGES.

I will hold back no longer,
Koz

1. Nice Story!

For me, my dad was Teamster ,and we lived AF good life.
I graduated college ,at. 19 so got an early start
Went through my libertarian phase for a couple years, even though I voted for Jimmy Carter
Then i remembered those five words that is in the Constitution twice.
To Promote The General Welfare
That piece of ,parchment is about we the people. We're the government!
So, no more complaints about taxes, no annoyance about government help for people in need
.
The notion of voting for low taxes, prisons, war, and systemic unfairness became a vapor
That was in 1978

3. I wish,,

Professor,
That more people could react like we do because we are, we understand the phrase, " in the life" I see so many people here on DU that want to chastise folks who "know" because they are not living reality and believe in that reality is a ' OMG" thing you are pushing too hard,, blah blah and so on. I was there,, its easy to say I'm right as long as it doesn't affect you! I will say again to DU,, Do not tell me to calm down, this is my life,,this is Prof's Life,,this is many Americans life who have " no privileged" children close to them.easy to assume . and how many? like I was, were afraid to talk because they would lose Govt benefits? I was at one point. But MY GOD,, Children dying in USA custody, as I read. It is not about my daughter,, it is about people!How can you tell me to calm down about that on this site? America has been about ALL of us.. that's why I joined this site. I cannot understand the replies I get to the opposite when I "dare" to voice against the regulars here.

I will fight,
Koz

you will see more from me. I will move forward against this political "system" that thinks they can endure, if I get dead,,then I am dead,,I will die knowing I fought for Everyone,,,, I pray all who feel same will give the same,, Paul Revere, George Washington, Ben Franklin, John Adams amongst many more,all did
