Typically, an American who is in support of more personal freedoms, (the right for everyone to vote, marry, protest, etc.) but less economic freedom (in favor of regulated economy and higher taxes for the rich). A liberal falls to the left of the center on a lateral political spectrum, as opposed to a conservative, who falls to the right. A conservative tends to support more economic freedom (less regulation of business and lower taxes for everyone) but less personal freedom (e.g. only straights should be allowed to marry, sex should only be between married heterosexuals, recreational drugs should be illegal)
However, in contemporary America some conservatives and liberals have abandoned much of the anti-freedom pretense (in a personal and economic sense), and have become somewhat libertarian. (someone who believes the people should have as many personal and economic freedoms as possible while still maintaining a peaceful, civilized society)
I'm a liberal, so I won't vote for Sarah Palin, she wants to keep weed illegal and not let the gays get married.
"Liberal: a power worshipper without power"
A liberal is generally someone on the "left" of the political scale...
a group of people who place names on people such as homophobics, calls every republican either a white trash hillbilly who doesn't know better or a super rich stuck up snob who hates the poor and wants to take their money which doesn't make any sense when you think about it...why take the poors money? They have barely any money? There poor? Liberals can be any person who belives in their views...no one puts a name on them like they do to the conservatives. Liberals own all of the media and control all of it which isnt a bad thing its just that the news on TV is extremely biased. Democrats are fine in my opinon its just the extreme liberals that can hurt the country in my opinion.
Bill Clinton was a good man...but not a good president

The politics of a man with a brain and not a gay obsession with American Nationalism.
Pro- gay rights
Not obsessed with fairytale books like the bible
Not willing to allow old people to die as they are unable to afford to heat their homes just to promote capitalism
They do not want to arm everyone with guns
Now obviously some liberals go too far and this is what gives them and a bad name and associates them with being a "liberal hippie douche". and promote disgusting policies such as affirmative action (Giving non-whites more rights than whites in essence). And some of them are far too anti-war. But generally they have the correct policies.
People who don't live in reality.
People who only criticize everyone else without offering any of their own solutions.
People with no valid arguments because they aren't arguing from any sort of position and so their mind changes like the wind.
John Kerry flip flopped like a screwball and couldn't make up his damn mind and so the people could see that Jerry Lewis would make a better president than dumbass John Kerry!
