"[W]ouldn't mind a bit if you'ld check your definition on 'liberal'.. cause last I heard it meant tolerant."
I was defining it as a member or supporter of a liberal political party. Since this is the United States -- not England, nor Europe -- the liberal political party I had in mind was Modern American Liberalism, as spawned by Roosevelt's New Deal , and weaned by Johnson's Great Society, all with their increased Government role -- intrusion, as matter-of-fact -- in all facets of life.
Although, it could also be defined as someone who follows the political philosophy of 'social liberalism' which is pretty much as above, only more so.
I could also be referring to a 'liberal' as: a graduate of a liberal arts college, but we won't go there.
