Letter to the Editor

Growing into liberalism

Growing into liberalism

By Stephanie Rayburn     Growing into political maturity I grew up Republican. My whole family is Republican. I grew up around my grandparents hearing slurs like "liberal idiots" and "lazy welfare recipients" even at the same time that they demonstrated how to give generously to those who need it.
