Leftists are bullies. It's part of what makes them Leftists. There was honor in "Liberalism", once upon a time. There are very, very few Liberals around these days. I don't know many of them. I doubt you know many...
There are, OTOH, Leftists everywhere. Like roaches.
And, like roaches, they stick their head out every once in a while, looking for something to destroy, but scurry for cover when confronted with the Light.
Liberalism in America gasped Its last breath with the implementation of the New Deal.
So, anyway, please... There is a difference. Words have meaning.
Not a Leftist...
