    But ACTUAL liberalism involves creating a level playing field where everybody is treated equally and consideration is given to the social justice for all concerned without regard for color of skin, gender or ethnicity.

    What TPD offers up may be hackneyed authoritarian leftism without any thought involved, but isn't liberal by a long shot.

    what liberalism does is to try to create a level field in every aspect of life...instead of JUST equity under the law, which is what the constitution states.

    that is why liberals love democracy, ...which is the most vile form of government--James Madison

    there is no social justice in the Constitution, feelings emotions dont have any part of the law, if they were to, then there would be no equality in the law at all.

    only dispensed laws based on someones view point of whats fair.

    Meh.

    I think liberalism is a wonderful thing. It's just too bad that those who know least about it are too often those most prone to calling themselves liberal.

    i will give you an example of social justice:

    A man who is hungry because he has not eaten in 3 days goes into a store, and takes a loaf of bread, and walks out of the store, he gets caught, under social justice the man should not face justice because his hunger justified his need for food and to steal.

    Definitely racist.

    But there is one thing that throws a wrench into this obvious conclusion.

    In Florida, the white's were called "crackers," by the native Americans who lived there. They were called this because, before there were white/non-native American settlers in Florida, the non-Native Americans would drive their cattle to graze in the Florida area. They were called "crackers," because their bull whips made loud "cracks," that reportedly could be heard miles away.

    So, technically, any non-native American (ie: Seminole, etc.,) can be a cracker in Florida. I suppose that could mean black folks too if they participated in those cattle drives.

    In Florida, it is common to hear, "Yeah, he's a good ol' cracker boy." It is a term of endearment meaning the person is native Floridian settler and not a "tourista," or snowbird or transplant.

    Food for thought.

    Point well taken. That wasn't a very fair comment on my part.

    I know that this holds true in Florida. Not sure why they are called crackers elsewhere.

    But it is used today as a racial slur against whites coast to coast.
