Modern liberalism in America is simply not true liberalism. it is actually closer to statism. Statism is the idea that the state should control and regulate aspects of life. Liberalism, in its originally intended form, as described by Henry Thoreau, is exactly the same as modern conservatism. Conservatism in the United States is the conservation of the Founding Father's liberalism, classical liberalism. modern liberalism is simply statism and socialism.
"...liberalism is a misnomer for the liberals. If we were back in the days of the Revolution, so-called conservatives today would be the Liberals and the liberals would be the Tories." -Ronald Reagan

Liberals dont worship John Kerry, i bet a fuckin "conservative" would have a shit fit if "liberals" bashed them and called them tight ass bush worshipers.
I support Gay Marriage, does that mean im un american or a hippie? Well excuse me for wanting equality and not wanting gays to be discriminated.
This "war" is stupid, theres still mass murder, mass murder of the hopeful soldiers fighting for no cause. I support the troops bravery, but the war has to end. bring em home!

Hateful term applied to anyone smarter than George Dubya. If it weren't for liberals slavery would still be completely acceptable. Liberals are often called Un-American for having common sense. Apparently Common sense is now only a European trait. Often picked on and despised for questioning questionable leadership as if we should follow our leader (reguardless of who) off a bridge without question. Liberals are despised for thinking for themselves as Republicans always blame the non-existant "liberal media" for the problems and turn to Fox news for their daily intake of rightwing bullshit which they like to call "fair and balanced"
Liberal: I voted for John Kerry because I think he's more qualified to lead our country.

wait wait say the liberals dont care about our soliders? Last time i checked, it was the liberals who were against the war in Iraq, where over 1500 over our soliders have died and over 10000 (TEN FUCKING THOUSAND) have been horribly maimed and countless others have suffered phycological damage. All to "Free the Iraqi people"...who obviously dont want to be free, since all of them are helping to blow the shit out of our soliders, who if the republicans cared about wouldnt be there anyway
Person A: Dude you liberals hate the soliders! douche
Me: Ya...which is why the liberals made all the soliders go to iraq
Person B: Ya, but the soliders are making the Iraqi's free !!!!!!!!!111one
Me: Dude...we went into iraq to kill terrorists and find weapons of mass the way, where is Osama bin Laden
Person A: Who??? that name sounds kinda familiar, but all thoughs arab names sound alike.
Me: Nevermind...did you know that most human rights organizations put Pakistan and Saudi Arabia (mr. bush's allies) as worse human rights offenders than Iraq BEFORE we invaded them...and this is the reason our soliders are fucking dieing in iraq.
Person B: You hate american you liberal!
Me: lets send some stupid republican corperate assholes to fight instead of lower class kids trying to pay for my cousin

In modern American terminology, a liberal is one who falls to the political left on most issues. These people, although good citizens, seem to enjoy muckraking and slandering most of the time. They say they like America and her laws and policies, but they end up just protesting, which is ok, but they tend to do it negatively. Overall, the modern use of the word liberal is just an insult, such as calling one a jackass, which, coincidentally, is the Democratic Party's symbol.
That guy listens to phish records, smokes pot, and is a public nuisance. He must be a liberal.

ps, im not conservative.
