I'd love to see some of the answers here.
There's a Huge Difference between, Classic Liberalism & Modern Liberalism.
Liberal/Progressive/Socialist/Democrat whatever you want to call it.
there's a difference between progressivism and liberalism. and certain people think all democrats are liberals and all republicans are conservatives. technically, the republican party is reactionary.
and there are people who think anything that isn't to the right of atilla the hun is 'liberal'.
Like any sort of Philosophy has it's "Good" Parts.. (Not Mentioning Extremist Philosophy's, Like Communism nor Fascism.)
But what do i think of em? I have nothing against them really.. I just don't approve of it, I understand why people would be inclined to be a Liberal/Progressive etc, but it's not for me..
I'm a Conservative, with a hint of Classic Liberalism. And no, not the Conservative Palin and Hannity make it out to be.. I actually despise those two Nuts, The Real Conservatism.
Big difference between, Neo-Cons and Conservatives.
I'm talking about what Classic Liberalism stood for back in the 1700's and Today's sense of Liberalism.
Another stupid thread. Why not ask why 'you' support conservativism, reactionaryism, & anal retention - all the same thing.
Simple and Reasonable Question.
Why not answer?
What do our opponents mean when they apply to us the label "Liberal?" If by "Liberal" they mean, as they want people to believe, someone who is soft in his policies abroad, who is against local government, and who is unconcerned with the taxpayer's dollar, then ... we are not that kind of "Liberal." But if by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal."

Pretty much this. Though that's a more widened view of Liberalism than specific.
