Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Love Me, I'm A Liberal (Phil Ochs)
Great old song. I've thought about it many times in recent decades, when "liberal" has become almost a cuss word for people who regard "liberals" as too far LEFT.

Back in the 60s, conventional middle-class grownup "liberals" were much too far to the RIGHT for the typical folkie/beatnik/hippie/New-Left/college-kid young American.

Those Even Greer lyrics update Phil's point of view very aptly.
