The Lovable Liberal
SEPARATING POLICY FROM POLITICS
ANITA RUFUS, A LOVABLE LIBERAL VOICE DEDICATED TO EXPANDING OUR UNDERSTANDING OF THE HUMAN CONDITION, SEPARATING POLICY FROM POLITICS, SO THAT INDIVIDUALS CAN HAVE CONTROL OVER THEIR OWN LIVES AND MAKE INFORMED CHOICES ABOUT THE ROLE OF GOVERNMENT.
Anita Rufus has been "The Lovable Liberal" on radio and online since the early 1990s, leading a provocative dialogue about the news. Her approach to every subject is to separate the policy from the politics.
Raised in Southern California, Rufus is a J.D. legal scholar, M.A. educator, and has been involved for over 50 years in civil rights, women's rights, and all public issues relating to equal treatment and protection of constitutional rights. She is a former Congressional candidate who has worked on behalf of average Americans -- as a corporate executive, non-profit leader, political activist, columnist, and mother/sister/daughter/wife.
Politics is the art of getting things done through people over whom you have no direct control. I believe when we can all understand what an issue is about, and can separate the policy from the politics, we can then have at least the possibility of a reasonable outcome.
Sound bites to get elected are fine -- part of the game, but we must never confuse that with the underlying substance of the challenges facing us in an ever-more-complex world and the impact on people's lives.
If you want to understand the issues, or if you want a provocative look at the news of the week, laced with passion as well as humor, tune in ... You won't know if you don't listen!
