You will never hear the word liberal used to describe the left or Democrats on this site. They have perverted the meaning of the word. They are illiberal or anti-liberal. Traditional liberalism advocated for civil liberties, political freedom, the rule of law, economic freedom and small government. Does that sound like the left today? They are as far from these ideals as they can possibly be. They are much closer to fascism than liberalism. Government intrusion, central planning, shunning the Constitution and the rule of law, seeking to muzzle opposing views. Does this sound like liberalism? And no, having the government enforce a nationwide same-sex marriage mandate is not promoting freedom. In some cases, one person’s freedom can be another’s tyranny. So let’s never refer to these people as liberals. They are leftists, or leftist-fascists.
