It ALL depends upon whom you're talking to:
(1) Discerning Liberals contend that postmodern Liberalism isn't the intelligent, thoughtful, concerned liberalism that they have known & grown up with. They strongly portend that this more extreme, even radical version of liberalism is in fact dismantling America educationally & socioeconomically.While they believe & fight for equal rights for everyone, they're reasonable in their fight & request regarding equal rights.They also believe that President Obama w/his Obamacare,illegal immigration policy, & concessive attitude towards Muslims is becoming unreasonable & ridiculous to the point of pure illogicality.
(2) Extreme Liberals, Leftists, Socialists, & Communists totally agree w/ President Obama & his policies.They believe that the most downtrodden among us are that way because of "the prevailing establishment" & "the man".They further aver that if the powers that be & the wealthy give up their power, then ALL will be right.They're the ones who believe that anyone who doesn't agree w/their socioeconomic & sociocultural policies are fascists, racists, Nazis, & other pejorative names.They're the ones who believe that America civilization, culture, & society needs to be seriously revamped, if not radically transformed.They see American nationalism as somehow a bulwark of racism & imperialism. They love the direction that postmodern America is progressing to internationalism, even globalism.They wouldn't be happy until America become globalist from without & within.
(3) Moderates believe that Liberals & the Left are destroying America. They believe that America may have problems; however, as a country, it is MUCH BETTER than it was.They believe that Liberals & the Left are asking for radical, even extreme changes.They maintain that people are working for changes w/n America; however, Liberals & the Left aren't satisfied w/ the rate of sociocultural, sociopolitical, & socioeconomic changes.They believe in reasonable changes.In their view, Liberals & the Left actually hate America & its values, wanting to transform it to a revolutionized America-1960s style but to the ninth power.
(4) Conservatives strongly & staunchly believe that America is going to hell & ruination because of Liberals who are akin to Leftists in their eyes. They contend that because of Liberals/Leftists, America has become a socialist, even communistic society. They maintain Liberals/Leftists have destroyed American society beyond repair.
