    Key word some. There's no point identifying a group by its extremists.

    if you think that other people need to have others make important life choices for them don't you espouse liberalism as it is defined in the USA

    how can one be an American liberal without believing that most Americans need the government to tell them what to do?

    Wrong. That means you don't espouse liberalism as defined by people attempting to demonize it.

    I'd be happy to see your definition of american liberalism

    income redistribution in the guise that way too many people aren't smart enough to take care of themselves seems to be the main theme

    I have no idea nor do I care so I'm not voting. Some of the most despicable people in the world are/were really intelligent. Silly poll, IMO.

    And you keep with the demonization. Hint: if you want a discussion, don't make all sort of insulting comments about the other side.

    the poster in question is fairly articulate and intelligent--one whom I have defended against improper right wing attacks in the past-I assume he can tell me his definition of what hie thinks is liberalism's main tenet

    and yes liberalism has to assume that most people need a nanny state

    Actually it does not, that is just your faulty perceptions.

    Well, you're assuming I'm (by your definition) an American liberal. I'm my own person, and if I can see a way to get something done using the private sector rather than government, I'd take that option, but sometimes, government is the best solution to a problem.

    prove they are faulty-you cannot. for your politics to have relevance you have to assume most people need a nanny government. social security is based on the assumption that most people weren't smart enough to save for their retirement. mandatory health care is based on the assumption that most people aren't smart enough to budget health insurance. Gun control is based on the assumption that people cannot be trusted to own guns.

    liberalism as practiced by the American left is a claim that most americans need government direction and guidance in their lives
