Reborn A Liberal | Letters to the Editor | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Reborn A Liberal

Being a conservative, I am ashamed by the findings of W. Lamberson, April 29, that found people of my ilk are responsible for food, water and medicine shortages on the planet.

Being a conservative, I am ashamed by the findings of W. Lamberson, April 29, that found people of my ilk are responsible for food, water and medicine shortages on the planet. Then, worst of all, responsible for depleting the ozone layer, causing global warming and deforestation. What chumps!

Being a conservative, it was required of me to be the most openly bigoted, racist, sexist, earth plundering gay basher I could be.

I'm finally ready to change my ways. I want to become a liberal.

Being a liberal, I too now believe that my country owes me health care and should look after me from cradle to grave.

Being a liberal, I now believe that my government, from Washington to the Bend City Council knows what is better for me than I do.

Being a liberal, I finally see the conservatives for the dumb ass hicks that they are (name calling and stereotyping is required now that I am a liberal).

I am ready to bask in the glow of liberal enlightenment.
