John Pepple

When I was young, it seemed that the liberals I knew and knew of were not rich. I suppose there were some around, but they didn't seem so prominent back then. People like Humphrey, Johnson, and Mondale seemed to have pretty ordinary backgrounds, and so it was easy to believe that the Democrats were the party of the poor. Today, it's different. It's so much easier to see the hypocrisy.


John - Democrats like Humphrey and Mondale were very different kinds of liberals. Humphrey was and still is a man I admired greatly.

I must admit that in general, I strongly believe the quality of our politicians has gone downhill. As alwasy - I blame us, the voters. If not for us, they wouldn't be in power.
