Do YOU believe that some Liberals have gone to the left, some might say to the extreme left?
Liberals today aren't what they used to be. Liberals in the past believed in the advancement of humankind but they were reasonable. They were for reforms but loved America. But Liberals today want to put America under the bus. They advocate entitlement programs although America can ill afford such programs. They believe that America should open its doors to all immigrants regardless of their skill levels. They furthermore advociate more equal income distribution, taking from the rich to give to the poor. Liberals today are more socialist or communist than they are liberal.
I think your comments included with the question offer a perfect answer. You are right on the money when you say 'liberals today are more socialist or communist than they are liberal'. The thing that troubles me more than the socialist cesspool America is becoming is the fact that more people are not speaking out against this obvious transition in American government. I have lost almost all faith in the American government and my fellow citizens.
The Constitution that this country was founded on was intended to protect the American way of life. I feel that our government should go out of it's way to maintain this way of life. The American government, however, tends to go out of it's way to help out those that disagree with the US Constitution. America's motto should be 'love it or leave it', but instead it seems to be 'if your group doesn't love it we will bend over backwards to change it for you'.
Is America destined to be a socialist nation?
Could it be that other countries have observed and emulated our government taking the best of what we had to offer. With all of the outsourcing to other countries, I feel we are finding some of the best from other countries to emulate and give those companies incentives which turns the table more socialist.

Stupid obvious studies that do little more than keep scientists, statisticians and bureaucrats busy are not the sole province of the United States government. Everywhere there is a giant government with huge sums of money and populated by arrogant liberals driven to make everyone live in...

Commonly, those people who call themselves conservative hold socialism and communism as being the end-state of liberalism. I would argue that there is nothing "liberal" about socialism and communism. Think about it, the fundamental engine behind both is the need for the...

American liberals like to point to European as the great liberal success story. They especially love Sweden because they think Sweden is socialist and has always been socialist and always will be socialist. But is Swedish "socialism" really that much smarter than America's...

I have been in many controversial political discussions on hub pages. I consider myself a centerist. I believe we need both some components of socialism to provide the things that we can't do as individuals and some componets of capitalism, but not enfettered capitalism. It seems that...
