Realistic. Empathetic. More welcoming of social evolution. Science based.
Thanks from tristanrobin and Kode

Higher taxes, redistribution of money from the productive to the non-productive. More care and concern about illegals than the citizen. Steal the Rights away from the people by legislation, or failing that, through the courts.

They really do not care about the people, but are only out for political power as the left always is. Y'all fooling yourselves if you think folks like Pelosi and Schumer care about anyone but themselves and their power.
Thanks from Jimmyb and Jimgorn

Liberal at one time referred to classical liberal. Not even close anymore. The "party" has changed a lot im my lifetime and even more in just the last 5 or 10 years. I would have been considered by most just a few years ago as a liberal. I am pro choice,.pro drugs, i marched and fought for gay rights before it was "cool" . I am anti police state, think the police are out of control (i was at the 1st two BLM marches in Minneapolis) i marched against the fed just to name a few things that have made many of my family and friends call me a liberal.

Today i feel it is very simple. It is collectivists vs individualists.

All of the things i listed above come down to personal liberties just as i also believe in gun rights, that income tax is theft, private property, i am against the minimum wage.

It all comes down to personal liberty. Democrats believe that the state is the solution. The needs of the many and all of that.
