Kermit the Frog may have made a living off singing, "It Ain't Easy Being Green" but it's a lot tougher to be "Liberal Red" here in the Livingstone-Macleod riding.

That's what Alberta Liberal party hopeful Dylin Hauser is finding out the hard way.

The High River oil worker's taken his lumps on Facebook since deciding he was going to seek the party's nomination in the next provincial election.

He says most people he's talked to still associate the Alberta Liberals with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Federal Liberal Party.

"It's still 90 per cent of the conversations that start right away. And if anybody has criticism, well it's usually the only one right off the bat, is Liberals and the association with the federal party. And they even associate what the federal party does with the full ideology too. So, there's also getting over that dogma."

Hauser is still in the process of gathering signatures for his nomination papers.

Once he has them, he'll hit the campaign trail.
