What words would YOU use to describe a Liberal without using the actual word?
So long as you're NOT referring to the 'political' meaning, my little book on synonyms says the following: Liberal: Generous, charitable, kind, unselfish, bounteous, munificent, profuse, plentiful, free, handsome, princely.
What do you think about that!
With half jest anyone who disagrees with an established whatever no matter where on the sliding scale politically one is.
If a person believes a woman's right to choose over a man's will, along with fairness, kindness, compassion, empathy for others, respecting Mother Earth, believing all people are entitled to the same healthcare, corporations are NOT people, the wealthy should be taxed equally as the middle class, entitlements are really what those in Washington suck out of the taxpayers, equality incorporates all religions, ethnicity, skin color, country of origin, and that building walls serve not only to keep people out but to keep people in, then, in my opinion, you are standing on the side of justice for all.
They are progressive on social issues and believes the role government is to take of it's citizens or at the very least provide a safety net or floor for those with the least.
Generally speaking most are Pro-choice, in favor of some form of gun control, anti death penalty, strongly support freedom of speech, separation of church and state, civil rights, anti-discrimination laws, and regulations to protect citizens from unhealthful food, water, air quality, cars, and other safety concerns related to business.
They believe in protesting to enact or push for change.
In favor of raising taxes to balance budget and keep programs.
Having said that just about everyone is liberal about some things and conservative about others. Younger people tend to be more liberal than older ones. Once you accumulate a certain amount of assets you become less in favor of raising taxes!
A liberal person usually has an open mind and the ability to think things through. A liberal person usually has an open heart to welcome new people, ideas and things into their world. A liberal person usually has the ability to avoid instant judgement on others looks, skin, religion or skill-set. There is nothing wrong with being conservative in some things, but it is more interesting to be somewhat liberal when it comes to learning about new things, new people, and new ideas. At least be liberal enough to listen and think before you shut your mind or heart. Be liberal enough to ask questions and consider the answers before rushing to condemn. Your conservative side can remain in control, but your liberal side needs to be allowed to breathe fresh air also.
