    Stand by. Next month, Ann Coulter rewrites history by swearing up and down that liberals fired the first shot at Ft. Sumter.

    Oh I'm sure some of them may have been just like some of the bad reviews given were based on politics as well.

    You're the one criticizing everybody for not reading it, and you haven't read it. You're touting this book, and you haven't read it.

    I'm Canadian. I voted for the Liberal Party candidate in my riding, but the Conservatives won a majority in Parliament and have been screwing up by the numbers ever since.
    We might get a change in government at the next election but the trouble is the Liberal Party is the third party in Parliament- the socialists in the New Democratic Party are the opposition.

    You have been educated.
    By Wikipedia?
    Why do you need a new term? Why not just call a spade a spade- liberal means what it always has. Looks to me like you're trying to put socialists and anarchists and 'classical conservatives' (big-government authoritarian types) and 'greens' under one umbrella called 'liberalism'.
    And maybe a better question is, why do I care? On second thought, go ahead. Be as wrong as you want and anyone who reads your opinions will just have to guess what the term 'liberal' means to you on a case-by-case basis.

    You don't have to read the book to see that the cover alone is confusing for young children.
