oh...I'd pick a few more definitions....not yours that apply to olde england...

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/Liberal


"of, relating to, or based on the liberal arts"

Al Gore fits this perfectly...science fiction, not science...and the rest of the laywers in congress......who don't understand basic science or economics...

"lacking moral restrain"

Guess Tiger, and half the lib dems in Congress fit that definition....


- - - - -

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/liberal

"favorable to progress or reform, as in political or religious affairs."

Ah, yes....the 'progressive party'...usually also called the commie party in most other nations...that means wealth redistribution, except for the elites who get to keep theirs.

"noting or pertaining to a political party advocating measures of progressive political reform."

Ah, yes..workers of the world unite - Andy Stern...and Karl Marx.....


"free from prejudice or bigotry; tolerant"

Yeah, right....11 AP reporters in AK fact checking Sarah's book, and not one investigating climate gate or the other scandals in the House and Senate.........or the White House Secretary's Office partying on the job...and endangering the Pres, VP, and guests.....

" open-minded or tolerant, esp. free of or not bound by traditional or conventional ideas, values, etc."

Tell me about Palin again.....

" characterized by generosity and willingness to give in large amounts: a liberal donor"

And not a single one of the lib dems has voluntarily given another 5% in income taxes to the treasury to pay down the national debt.....In fact, most brag how little taxes they pay....if they even bother to pay them!!!!!!! you seem to have to be a tax cheat to be in the Obama adminstration..

You got me rolling on the floor....

NOW HERE IS A BETTER DEFINITION

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=liberal

"Technically, someone who falls to the left in a political system, who believes in government programs (healthcare is a good example, as is welfare) and a larger scope of government, also favors monitoring of business and protection of constitutional rights. Someone who believes that the federal government should have more importance than state government, "

Yep..the party of BIG GOVERNMENT...where BIG DADDY knows best...give your money to the government and they will redistribute it...nay, they'll take it to start with, and give out according to political clout...unions, lawyers, minority representation groups, ACORN, etc.....

Got it!
