    The right does certainly love to create strawmen, to tell liberals what they believe and then use that as a cudgel, don't they?

    You continuously brand liberals with labels like "statist" because it makes it easier for you guys to dishonestly demonize them.

    Stop hiding-leftists generally advocate an increase in state power, and believe not in the supremacy of the individual but the state.
