Liberals love freedom above all else. In fact, my last paper was titled “It’s About Freedom.” Liberals believe that everyone should be free to pursue their dreams, pursue their talents, and live the life they choose. In the United States, they believe in a more moderate approach to foreign policy and economic policy, and they are the party of President Barack Obama.
Liberals believe in a variety of ideals and political views, including freedom of speech and gender equality. They have been around for centuries, but their ideas are often far removed from the mainstream of American politics. Democrat policies, on the other hand, place power in the hands of citizens, allowing them to make decisions without government interference.
There are two major groups of Democratic voters. The first is the progressive left, which is composed of mostly white, non-Hispanic people. They support far-reaching changes that address racial injustice and increase the social safety net. The second group is the establishment liberals, which are arguably just as liberal.
As a general rule, liberal Democrats support increased defense spending and sending troops overseas to defend allies and partners who are under threat. Liberals are more likely than moderate Democrats to believe that promoting and protecting human rights is a crucial foreign policy goal. Liberals also support addressing climate change.
