Just like how there was a time back in the day when liberalism was interested in actual liberty, and not government enforced "fairness" I suppose.

Then, Caveat, your problem isn't with conservatives. Your problem is the people who obviously mis-respresent the intentions of liberals. If liberalism is truly "not socialism" you need to go to Washington and tell them that, don't preach to us about it.

Yes, dude, seriously.

You can claim Obama is a Liberal, or you can claim Obama is a Socialist both you can't claim he is both just as he can't claim he is both.

You can even claim that people who claim to be liberals are Socialists. But in doing so you have not claimed Liberalism is Socialism. You have only claimed that they aren't what they say they are.

The fact that most conservatives can't make these distinctions is just one of many reasons why they loose elections.

But then I'm assuming that it's a mistake instead of intentional. For many conflating liberalism with socialism is purposefully designed to disavow both Sosialism and Capitalism with one brushstroke.

Yea, liberalism is still not Socialism, eventhough the current administration (predominantly liberal) are pushing for it and stepping all over the Constitution in the process.

LOL!!!!, seriously dude?

Words still have meaning, and Liberalism is still not Socialism.

In the scramble to make the GOP more diverse, a lot of people are looking at Asian Americans, whom many believe are a natural constituency for the party. I would love it if Asian Americans converted en masse to the Republican Party, but the challenge for Republicans is harder than many appreciate.

President Obama did spectacularly well with Asian Americans, garnering nearly three-quarters of their vote. This runs counter to a lot of conventional wisdom on both the left and the right. On average, Asian American family income is higher and poverty is lower than it is for non-Latino whites....
