It seems that the word liberal gets a bad rap these days, especially on conservative talk radio (libs, lefties, loons etc.), being a liberal I find there definition disturbing. They basically want you to beleive that a liberal is for more taxes and bigger government and a conservative wants less taxes and smaller government. Let see what the American Heritage Dictionary says. Lberal means to give freely (generous), favoring proposals for reform (broad minded). Conservative means Favoring traditional views and values; tending to oppose change, tending to conserve; preservative. Now useing these definitions lets define the Taliban, Al Qaeda or the KKK. This is the question conservatives talk show host will not answer.
