the old left adopted and redefined Modern Liberalism which is no where close to True or Classical Liberalism.<quoted text>
yes, i understand that the Old Left was conservative.
so when floriduh talks about the dems and the KKK she's talking about conservatives.
it's too bad black folks see the distinction.
What Is Classical Liberalism?
Prior to the 20th century, classical liberalism was the dominant political philosophy in the United States. It was the political philosophy of Thomas Jefferson and the signers of the Declaration of Independence and it permeates the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Federalist Papers and many other documents produced by the people who created the American system of government. Many of the emancipationists who opposed slavery were essentially classical liberals, as were the suffragettes, who fought for equal rights for women.
