Liberalism as a political ideology - discussion

Liberalism is a political philosophy or worldview founded on ideas of liberty and equality. Whereas classical liberalism emphasises the role of liberty, social liberalism stresses the importance of equality. Liberals espouse a wide array of views depending on their understanding of these principles, but generally they support ideas and programmes such as freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, free markets, civil rights, democratic societies, secular governments, gender equality, and international cooperation.

“Liberalism is the cancer that has been slowly eating away at the very fabric of America for the last 100 years.

It metastasized during the Obama years, and began fundamentally transforming the United States of America into a socialistic 3rd world power. Each year that we allowed this malignancy to grow and spread, Our health diminished and our national weakness and unpreparedness Grew at an alarmingly rate.

It spread unchecked to every major organ of our government and to every area of our daily lives.

National Security, Foreign Relations, the Economy, Education, Health Care and our position in the world, have been most affected and are now on life support.

The American Family, our Military, our Schools, our Safety and Security, and our Rights under our Constitution have suffered the most, and will take time, resources and major commitment to correct.

The only cure to the cancer of liberalism that has so weakened our nation is a radical, and immediate, new treatment plan that makes the health and well-being of America the number one priority -- not the special interests of the few at the expense of the many.

A plan that harnesses all of our resources to make us healthy, reestablishes America as the land of great opportunity, and the beacon of hope and benevolence to the world.”

If we do not fully support President Trump and he is not successful in bringing this cancer into remission, righting our ship and setting a new course, I fear America, as we knew it, will be gone forever, and the World will be a Sadder, Darker and more Dangerous Place.” And we will only have ourselves to blame.

"social liberalism " doesn't work because as many have said "Sooner or later you run out of other people's money" True liberalism meant a small government, with the fewest number of laws, to allow the people the most freedom, today it basically means socialism lite. They won't kill all capitalism but it will almost not be worth the effort.
