Do you think this is true? Do most Americans believe in these things? Do you? Which ones?

A large majority of the American people consistently support the following agenda:

  • Tax the rich and corporations
  • End the wars, bring the troops home, cut military spending
  • Protect the social safety net, strengthen Social Security and improved Medicare for all
  • End corporate welfare for oil companies and other big business interests
  • Transition to a clean energy economy, reverse environmental degradation
  • Protect worker rights including collective bargaining, create jobs and raise wages
  • Get money out of politics

but any reasonable person would acknowledge that saying "employers do this" is painting all,

I really do not think that it is my issue when you read "employers" to mean "every single employer" or "most employers" or however else you may have interpreted it.

It makes me wonder about your use of the word "liberals". Is it that you mean "every single liberal"? Hmmm.

talent, demonstrations of competence, ambition, a willingness to put in more hours

It really is a stretch to think that as a general rule employers reward "talent, competence, amibition and a willingness to work".

Wow.
