    Liberalism favors a minimal, non-intervening government. Forcible wealth redistribution is primarily a GOP practice, and it's a propoganda tactic of the GOP to claim liberalism is about tax-and-spend--a tactic which you seem gullible enough to fall for.



    CEOs and board members actively increase the debt, because the pols you vote for bend over backwards to tax Americans (or future generations of Americans) and steer that tax money to their projects.
    Better tell that to modern day liberals who I believe will disagree with you.

    As for CEO's and board members again you focus on the revenue side of the govt. and not the expense side. If you have less revenue coming in then cut spending. Govt. doesn't do that.

    Teddy was a long before my time. If that is true I stand corrected about always been about wealth redistribution.

    Not Liberalism originally.

    Originally Liberalism was what we are today...

    It actually started before Teddy, but he was the first to articulate it clearly.

    Teddy was the first false choice given to America.

    LOL, you haven't figured out anything. You just listened to your talking heads at FoxNews and rush limbaugh and regurgitated what they told you about liberalism. Liberalism originally meant exactly what I said it did. . .

    Classical liberalism is a philosophy committed to the ideal of limited government and liberty of individuals including freedom of religion, speech, press, assembly, and free markets.

    Modern political philosophy - Google Books
    It's a sad fact of the modern US that because of spend-thrifty GOPers who prefer to run up deficits by building useless weapons and backing dictators that sensible individuals are reduced to having to re-steer that money into something useful.

    In an ideal liberal world, there would be no need for this re-steering, because there would no attempt by any pol to run up deficits to make specific businesses (i. e. the offense sector) rich.
