The correct range of liberalism is anarchy to Jefferson's Nightwatchman. However, this is not the current view. Modern day liberals are Hamiltons, in which the economic powers are best served in the industrial and banking elite whom have close ties in our democracy. Modern day liberals are statists who believe in crony capitalism, handing out bonuses to the bankers who screwed us over, industry favoritism, and the MIC. If you don't believe me, then look no further than our current administration. Modern day liberals are not liberal at all. They are liars, control freaks, and opportunists. They have no coherent philosophy of liberalism, except to expand the state and pay off their buddies.
