Surprise! I'm a liberal!
I took the Pew Center's poll, and that was the result. Some interesting true facts:
Liberals represent 17 percent of the American public, and 19 percent of registered voters.
This group has nearly doubled in proportion since 1999, Liberals now comprise the largest share of Democrats and is the single largest of the nine Typology groups.
Liberals are second only to Enterprisers in following news about government and public affairs most of the time (60%). Liberalsâ€™ use of the internet to get news is the highest among all groups (37%).
I can't really think of any historical parallels for being a liberal in a situation where a conservative movement first stole an election and then began to replace Constitutional government with authoritarian rule--including the classic tool of authoritarian governments everywhere, torture.
Can anyone think of a historical parallel?
