Excellent points.They're not liberals. There's nothing liberal about the current Democrat party. With very few exceptions, modern Democrats holding political office are statist collectivist authoritarians, who believe that individual liberties, private business ownership, and individual property rights are entirely subordinate to the federal government's control, and that laws should be enforced according to arbitrary political ideology rather than blind equality. They believe everything and everyone is subordinate to central government dictate, and actively facilitate censorship of any information or opinion that deviates from their official narratives. These things could not be more clear at the present time, unless you've literally been living under a rock. How you can claim they aren't politically left is absolutely beyond me.
To frame it another way, do any of the following characteristics sound even remotely consistent with the actions of the modern Democrat party to you?
of, pertaining to, based on, or advocating liberalism, especially the freedom of the individual and governmental guarantees of individual rights and liberties.
Liberal definition, favorable to progress or reform, as in political or religious affairs. See more.www.dictionary.com
Liberalism is a political and moral philosophy based on liberty, consent of the governed and equality before the law.
Liberals are VERY illiberal to be sure.
