The Modern Liberalism in the United States Template.[edit]

Does anyone know how I'm supposed to edit the Modern Liberalism in the United States template? I was hoping to add more names to the template, because in my opinion, it's under-populated. However, for some reason, it won't let me. Can someone please help me with this? Mr. Brain (talk) 22:50, 10 February 2018 (UTC)

"Liberal" as an insult[edit]

As a non-American, one thing I see that's different about language in my country and language in the US is the use of the word "liberal" as a pejorative in the United States. It goes close to being used that way in the first thread on this page. I don't think that happens elsewhere in the world. The article is about Liberalism, in the US. How can it ignore the word as an insult? HiLo48 (talk) 01:25, 25 June 2018 (UTC)

The current version is "libtard", implying that liberals are all retarded. Rick Norwood (talk) 11:35, 25 June 2018 (UTC)
Yes, language does evolve, doesn't it? HiLo48 (talk) 12:06, 25 June 2018 (UTC)
I think the intended implication is that you must be mentally retarded to not realize that Mexicans are rapists. Rick Norwood (talk) 11:37, 26 June 2018 (UTC)
The term liberal is used as an insult by the Left throughout the world. The term actually began in the early 19th century as an insult by conservatives. TFD (talk) 04:40, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

NAFTA?[edit]

"Democratic president Bill Clinton (1993–2001) worked with conservatives, against strong liberal opposition, to end some of the main welfare programs and to implement NAFTA, linking the economies of the U.S., Canada, and Mexico."

If there is a connection of NAFTA to liberalism, it needs to be explained and supported with citations. Shoreranger (talk) 14:19, 30 January 2019 (UTC)

"Classical liberalism" = "free market economy"?[edit]

"Classical liberalism in the United States (also called laissez-faire liberalism[18]) is the belief that a free market economy is the most productive."

Since when is an economic system the same as political theory? --Shoreranger (talk) 17:45, 31 January 2019 (UTC)
