Do you know what liberal means? It basically means freedom. Liberalism, to be more specific, classical liberalism is the ideology America was founded on. Classical liberalism is the true form of liberalism. It advocates a free market, limited government, civil liberties, political freedom and rule of law. A perfect example today of classical liberals is the Libertarian Party. The Republican Party is also pretty liberal for example its support of free market economics and limited government is liberal. Classical liberalism came out of the Enlightenment and strongly influenced the Founding Fathers. The ideology dominated American politics throughout the 1800's. In the early 1900's far-leftists started infiltrating the Democratic Party. In 1933 when Democrat FDR took office "modern American liberalism" was born which is what the Democratic Party calls there ideology but the truth is they hijacked liberalism and the real ideology of the Democratic Party is social democracy. Social democracy advocates for a peaceful, evolutionary transition of the economy to socialism through progressive social reform of capitalism. Common social democratic policies include advocacy of universal social rights to attain universally accessible public services such as education, healthcare, workers compensation and other services including child care and care for the elderly. FDR's comprehensive New Deal policies were socialist and fit perfectly under the social democracy ideology. Many of the politicians who opposed the New Deal called it socialist. A year before his death FDR advocated policies he called the economic bill of rights. The policies FDR advocated were:
-The right of every family to a decent home
-The right to a good education
-The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health
-The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation
These are all socialist. Democratic president LBJ implemented his Great Society which was full of socialist policies. And now our current president Barack Obama who is a Democrat implemented universal health care which is socialist. All these people out in Hollywood are Democrats and are always advocating socialism like Michael Moore. Have you ever noticed how so many members of the Democratic Party act anti-American? When you see an American burning the American flag, a majority of the time they are members of the Democratic Party. One reason a lot of Democrats act anti-American is because they hate that America is capitalist they wish America was completely socialist. Most members of the Democratic Party should be called progressives, statists, social democrats, socialists and even some are communists.
Capitalism Wins & Socialism Loses!
These socialists are so stupid because if they did there research then they would realize that nearly all socialist countries in the past went bankrupt and the ones still around are poor. The Nordic countries are the only countries with a socialist economy that have done well but that's because those countries only have up to several million people and they have a nice oil supply that keeps the money flowing into the countries. In socialism a lot of things are free but how do you afford to give out so much free stuff? Most of the time you can't and eventually will go bankrupt like we have seen multiple times in the past with other socialist countries you stupid socialists! The strongest, richest countries are primarily capitalist. Look at China, ever since they moved there economy more towards capitalism there economy has been growing like crazy. All the top emerging markets have primarily capitalism. Why is capitalism so good? One reason is because it benefits businesses and business creation equals job creation. If America never had capitalism we would not be a rich self-sufficient country today.
